OK, so I was going over some of my pictures from the past few weeks and I made an amazing discovery. My girl Chloe looks just like a movie star. Yes, to me she looks like "Boo" from the movie "Monsters, Inc." Here are two photos for your comparison. I was trying to get a rare picture of Chloe with her hair in pigtails, but she would only make funny faces at me, which is why you haven't seen them until now. This was purely accidental, as I was not trying to make Chloe look like "Boo".

Chloe's 3rd Birthday

The party was a big hit. We had nearly 50 friends and family members in our home, one third were children and it was wild, but not out of control. We rented a large bouncer with a climbing wall and slide. The bigger kids helped the little kids get up the wall and they all seemed to have a great time. Mom was so busy that she forgot to take any pictures, so we will have to rely on those supplied by our friends.

Chloe and Pearl both enjoyed every minute playing with their friends and bouncing around. Instead of a birthday cake, Mom made a "cupcake tree". Too bad I didn't get a picture of it or of Chloe blowing out her candle. Actually, she refused to blow, but her friends helped her and she dived right into eating. The cupcakes disappeared in no time at all and Pearl was the only one there who insisted on using a fork to eat hers. She is such a neat girl. We had 46 cupcakes and there was only one left over after the party. Half were chocolate and half were strawberry. All had red frosting and an Elmo candy face or Elmo ring.

Tomorrow Chloe turns 3

Stay tuned for some updates and posts. We are planning a big birthday bash for Chloe's #3. Last year, Chloe became very sick on her birthday and we had to cancel at the last minute. This year Chloe is sick again, but we have two more days until her party and we are optimistic.

For New Year's weekend, we returned to Carmel and had a glorious time shopping and playing on the beach. Here is a picture of Chloe in the sand with both barrels loaded.
