Chloe Turns 8
I am having a hard time encapsulating her here... I don't feel like I'm doing her justice.. She is a masterpiece, crafted by God to be exactly what He wants her to be... She is beautiful and special and wonderful... And I am so thankful that she is my OoEe.
We didn't have a party yesterday - just made dinner, cake and opened presents. She wanted a Jell-o cake so we started out with the rainbow cake mix and she chose watermelon Jell-o. Then I realized that we didn't have frosting. Off to Walgreens, where we discovered they only carry chocolate frosting. Thanks to Sharon, we ended up leaving the store with Cool-Whip and maraschino cherries. The cake ended up fantastic (much better than dinner) and she liked being part of preparing and decorating it.
We are still planning on having a large celebration after school is out and after the baby comes for both Nathan and Chloe. I'm going to be sending out the invitations this next week -- hopefully by then I'll have already had the baby and know more about how my life is progressing. Hopefully.
Lowell and I got Chloe some books including Black Beauty which I'm really excited for her to read and some clothes. She loves new clothes and looked adorable in everything! The grandma's gave her money so she is able to shop for whatever toys she wants. Auntie Leeda and Uncle Bread sent her a pillow pet. She was thrilled! :) She also got a new dress, earrings and a necklace from Mamoo along with a jump rope, yo-yo and coloring book.
When we snuggled last night, she said that she had a good birthday. I'm glad.
