Magical Land

While in the store, Chloë can be quite conversational with others:

Hi there! What's your name? I'm Chloë. Do you live in a magical land? Are you a princess? I am. Do you have a husband? Where is he? My mommy has a husband - he's my daddy. Do you have kids? Are they here? My mommy has kids and one's my brother. Are you a grandma too? I'm not a grandma, I'm a sister. I live in a magical land and I like to sing and dance and jump...do you want to come to my Birthday? It's on September 6th and I'll be 3 years-old...

Chloë Turns 3

September 6th, 2010 - Chloë's 3rd Birthday party was an affair of tea and cake fit for a princess (or a whole lot of little princesses for that matter). Once again, Sarah was in form with another smashing cake (or a whole lot of little cakes for that matter).

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!




More pictures coming as soon as we track them down!
