How can it possibly be 6 years since Chloe was born? I woke up this morning with Halle lying next to me (since she woke up at 6-ish and I didn't feel like getting up) and Chloe burst through the door to say good morning- I don't think she remembered it was her birthday. But I do remember that day six years ago and how it went terribly wrong but by God's grace we came out of it just fine. I couldn't imagine life without Chloe and am so incredibly thankful for her.
Actually, as I'm writing this she's sitting next to me and asking me to write about Amanda too- about how she's special and gives Chloe hugs and puts up her hair. What a sweet girl!
We had a great weekend with my parents in town. I showed them all around Franklin and we had a cookout -of sorts, since it rained- and a little party for Chloe. We had to reschedule her actual party because of a stomach bug that passed through the house- ick. Then we spent the day (today) with the Fadely's and had super-yummy cupcakes with real buttercreme frosting, mmmm. I took my camera and forgot to take pictures of the fun though.
So it looks like despite our best efforts Chloe's birthday, as with a couple of the other Button girls, will be a week long celebration. We're putting the kabosh on that though because we're setting them up for a life full of disappointment when they get to real life- or for a lifetime of frustration and empty bank accounts for their future husbands. But for now we're celebrating with a game of "Dora" themed Candyland- this should be fun.
