Wait... what is it?

Amber: What is this?

Chloe: You don't know?

Amber: Well, I mean, I've seen some of these lying around the house, but I'm not clear... I mean... wait, is it?  It's not... wait.

Chloe: It's a baby.

Amber: I'm the baby.

Chloe: Not anymore.

Amber: There is literally no one that I don't hate right now.

Chloe: Don't worry - I got used to you.  This will be cake.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 Chloe: Going to school after a four day weekend sucks.  I miss my people.  I just want to be with my people all the time.  Like Aunt Diane.  I love her so much that I literally can't stand it.  My eyes are bugging out with love.

 Amber: I love her, too.  I wish these people would stop staring at me, but I love her.  Also, I'm a little pissed that you got to sit at the A-list table with Aunt Diane and the rest of us were booted to the living room.

Chloe: Dude, I was here first.

 Chloe: You got to sit with Mommy and Daddy, though, that's something.

Amber: Yeah, you know what it is?  Just like last Thursday. That's cool, though, we had a good time.  That woman can COOK.  And I don't care if you're Aunt Diane's favorite because... (whispers) I'm Daddy's favorite...

Chloe: What?  I missed that last part.

Amber: Not important.  Carry on...

 Chloe: Look how stylish we are!

Amber: I know.  Mom-Mom took one look at us in these coats and said, "I don't even need to ask where those came from."  Everyone can tell Aunt Diane has great style!

Chloe: See?  Mom-Mom - another one of my people.  And here it is Monday and we're at school.  Suckage.  But, anyway.  It was a good thing that Mom-Mom came with us to the mall so she could chase you down when you ran from Santa. 

Amber: He's not right.

Chloe: You made it all the way to the Gap.  You sure can run fast.

Amber: I run from predators.  The man's not right.

Chloe: He's going to bring you a baby doll if you are good, so he can't be all bad.

Amber: Do I have to SEE him to get the baby doll?

Chloe: No.  Just be good.

Amber: Man, I was born good.

Massive Update

Chloe: Lord love a duck!  She hasn't updated our blog since October 25!

Amber: Well, the hurricane and then Daddy was using the camera and camera cord to document our destroyed ceiling, plus she's busy at work... you know how it is.

Chloe: Well, I think I speak for Grams when I say, "that's no excuse."

Amber: Okay, well, on it with it then...

Chloe and Amber's Massive Update

Chloe: We had a great time trick or treating at the mall as a family.

Amber: Why weren't other Mommies and Daddies dressed up like ours were?

Chloe: Mommy said it's because they have sticks up their booties.

Amber: That doesn't even make sense.

Chloe: Yeah, I don't know.  I wasn't really listening.

 Amber: Here we are at Pirate Day at the Brandywine River Museum.  We had fun making pirate crafts, seeing art, listening to pirate stories and touring the grounds.

Chloe: I really liked seeing the animal sculptures and listening to you speak to them in their native tongue.
 Amber: Yes, here I am, oinking at the pig.

Amber: MOOOO

 Chloe: Here we are, celebrating Simma Simma Founders' Day.

Amber: Are you sure that's how you pronounce it?

Chloe: UM, this is my fourth Founders' Day and it's only your first, so I think I know I what I'm talking about, thank you very much.

 Amber: Sure.

 Amber: Anyway, I had a really good time.  I'm not sure why I wasn't included before.  I was helpful with the raffle, quiet during the keynote, I only colored on the table cloth a little bit, and I was really enjoying the carbohydrates.

 Amber: See?

 Chloe: It was a great day - we got to see our Simma peeps and Mommy bought us buttons and let us wear some of her jewelry.

 Amber: Yes, I wore a Phi Sig pin from the California Alumnae Chapter with a sun on it and one from the Northern Virginia Alumnae Chapter (the state of Virginia).  You chose the Panda and the Democratic Donkey.  I don't know if that's also from the Northern Virginia chapter or a DC chapter and Mommy can't remember.

Chloe: Mommy stuck to representing Philly and wore her Ben Franklin pin, plus a lot of others that she said she wouldn't loan me because she had "earned" them.  Whatever.

Amber: It was a great day.  I loved when you reprimanded the sales woman for not selling Simma Simma shirts for kids.

Chloe: Well, really.  My FOURTH time.  Can no one plan ahead??

Amber: And here we are, modeling our new Hello Kitty Christmas shirts from Grams. 

Chloe: They are so fab!  Well, that's all, everyone... have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we'll see you again soon!

Amber: Over and out and gobble gobble.
