Happy Birthday Cocoa Puff!

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.

I don't think any of us will forget the day Chloe was born. How shocked we all were to hear what was going on with you and how elated and relieved we were when it all turned out so beautifully. She is still such a beautiful girl and such fun to be around.

Happy Birthday Chloe!

I wish we had gotten some rain. We got a 30 second shower this afternoon. Not nearly enough.

Thank you! I too feel that Chloe is tons of fun to be around and she constantly brightens my day.

I'm really wishing for a day of non-stop rain. We need a cool down and the air needs a cleaning with all of the smog/smoke stuff we've had lately- ick.

I was thrilled to share Chloe's day with her- you know we love your daughters dearly. All three of them! (But, Chole is the only one we've had the privilege of seeing on her Birth day). Six. Six! Wow. It brings a smile to my face. :-)

I snapped some shots of the action here yesterday- I'll have to e-mail those, too.

I can't wait to see them; I can't believe I didn't take any pictures myself. And yesterday really made her day. She hasn't spent a birthday with friends since she was 3 so it was really exciting for her- and I had a really good time too ;)
