Five years ago of the greatest joys my life will ever hold...made her grand appearance. I am so grateful for the privilege of being her mom. She brings "life" to my life. She teaches me new things everyday. She makes me smile and giggle and to see the world through her eyes of wonder is a gift. It's impossible to be unhappy around this girl. She is a breath of fresh air. She is a treasure and I love her more than words could ever say! Happy Birthday sweet Chloe Saige!

On to the birthday pictures!!

It was a puppy birthday party...and would you look at this cake my sweet Mom made. Seriously...she is the cake master!! It was Tanner's idea to add the bone shaped cookie. I provided the vintage buttons and felt for his eyes and nose. She whipped this baby up in about a half and hour. Move over Martha! And speaking of Martha...we hung these cool tissue paper flowers (on clearance at WalMart...woo hoo) from the rafters.
The cake was decorated with my vintage collection of dogs. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.?.
And of course "dog bone" cookies. Which might have been a bigger hit than the cake with the kids.

We made a fun craft. (Martha Stewart again...puppies and kitty sack puppets.) They turned out super cute...especially the yorkies!
We have had my family in town this past week and have had SO much fun. The only hard part about them coming is when they leave. It was so sad to see them go! Hope you all had a great night!
