One year Tribute to Bella
On Wednesday, 52 weeks to the day that Bella had to leave, we released a bouquet of balloons from the Mt. Doug High School football field, Bella's absolutely favorite place to play and run.
Red, Green and White balloons honour Bella's Mexican Heritage and tied to them are notes that both Vera and I wrote in English and Spanish. I even attached a little Ruby ring to the balloons for Bella, Ruby being her month of birth...girl needs to have her bling..right?
We popped champagne and drank B-52 shooters in Bella's honor as well. When we arrived at the field we were the only ones there, and as I was getting ready to release the balloons, the field behind me started filling up with students getting ready to play flag football for PE class.....seeing as it's not football season here...I have to wonder if that wasn't Bella letting us know she was there with us.
Bella and I made this short film in art class. It is my very first animated movie and revolves, of course, around Bella.... She was with me each and every day while making the movie and like a pro, nailed her part in one take. I took over 2000, yes two thousand, photos and then compiled them together to make the video. I even did the voices for the mice!
