Chloe is 5!!!!

Chloe's birthday was last week.  I actually took all of the above photos that day!  It was like one giant photo shoot.  LOL!  My niece Scarlett (the little blonde cutie in the picture with Chloe) turned 2 years old the beginning of this month and I volunteered to take her photos.  Chloe and Minah were my little helpers and ended up in a few.  I had to do a lot of explaining to Chloe about how even though it was her birthday we were taking Scarlett's picture.  She was a real trooper.  We went to the forest preserve first and the girls had fun running around, chasing dragonflies, and just playing with each other.  Afterwards we came back to our house and tried to take a few more pictures of Scarlett but she was D.O.N.E.  Suddenly Chloe appeared in another outfit ready for more pictures (hence the one in the cute witch costume).  After a yummy lunch with Scarlett and Aunt Dee Dee we came home and Chloe wanted to take more photos while Minah was napping.  She dressed in her favorite Barbie costume and we took some in front of our house.  Soon Jacob and Ryan were home from school and Daddy came home from work and the party started.  Chloe's request for her birthday meal-Chinese noodles of course!  She got a Barbie Charm School doll, new outfit, and a Barbie DVD.  To top it off, Uncle Mike and cousin Abby called on Face time to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Chloe-we love you so much and you are such a wonderful sister/daughter/cousin/friend.  Your smile lights up the room as well as your sweet personality.  We are so blessed that you are part of our family. 
Happy 5th Birthday Sweetie!
