Happy Birthday, Aunt Diane!

 Chloe: I love my Diane.  I love her so much.  I just want to be with her all the time and I tell Mommy that all.the.time so she knows.  So, of course, I was thrilled to spend Sunday with her, Uncle John and Miss Desiree at the beach.  I sang Happy Birthday multiple times and gave lots of kisses and tried to dig to China and ate fish and chips and cried and cried and cried when we left.

 Chloe: I was simply overcome with hysteria.

Amber: She really was.  Listen to her.

Chloe: If I could figure out a way to live in Aunt Diane's purse, I would.

Amber: She totally would.

Chloe: Returning home from the beach house really requires chemical intervention.

Amber: Thank God she finally shut up so I could sleep.

Chadds Ford Days

 Chloe: Yesterday, Mommy and her friend Jennifer took us to Chadds Ford Days.  It took WAY too long to get there, but it was worth it.  I especially liked seeing the cows.  The Mommy, Prada, makes very yummy milk that we got to drink.

Amber: (Calm down, Daddy, it was pasteurized.)

 Chloe: This is Prada's baby, Pretzel.  He was just 4 days old!

Amber: MOO

 Chloe: One of my favorite things was meeting all the vendors at the craft show and the historical crafters.  I was very interested to learn about making pottery, lace (I helped!), wood carving, basket weaving and creating molds for designing glass sun catchers.

Amber: I could totally make that lace lady cry.  Those dowels look like something that I would very much like to play with...

 Chloe: I also liked the kids' activities... the bounce house and the games.  Mommy said that she didn't expect to have to pay for those things, but I think it was worth it.

(Note from Mommy: I can't make that photo do what I want and it's Monday, so deal with it.)

 Chloe: I don't know what this is, but Mommy thought it was funny.

(Note from Mommy: It's funny because it's true!)

 Chloe: This guy is actually carving a new mold right in front of me.  He's going to use it to make sun catchers with squirrels on them.

(Note from Mommy: Chloe picked out her outfit for the day.)
 Chloe: My favorite vendor was the one who made the Adirondack chairs.

Amber: Yeah, I think you sat in all of them.

Chloe: Mommy refused to buy one!  

Amber:  Yeah, she's mean that way.

Halloween Preview

 Chloe: I AM IRON MAN.

Amber: This rocks.

Chloe: I was so glad our costumes arrived that I insisted we try them on and they are SO COOL.

 Amber: I can control lightening with my hammer.

Chloe: And I can shoot lasers out of my hands!

Amber: Mommy said that she can shoot spider webs.  What can Daddy do?

Chloe: Nothing, yet.  Since he won'

Amber: He is so difficult.

Chloe: Word.


P.S. from Mommy: to the kids at school who told Chloe she couldn't be the real Iron Man because she's a girl, you're going to want to piss off.  Please and thank you.
