Oh Susanna!

She'll make a great Milli Vanilli or Ashley Simpson one day.

New phrases

"That's okay Mommy. We'll get you out of here."
"Red means Stop. Green means Go. Yellow means Slow Down."
"Don't worry Mommy."
"Nah, it's just Pee Pee."

Are you freakin' kidding me?

Chloe is currently napping, after an eventful morning of LOCKING ME OUT OF MY BEDROOM. This is now the second time she has done this. The first time I was actually dead-bolted outside. This time we were at least inside, thankfully. But you'd think I would have learned something after the first incident. NO. I systematically went into FREAK OUT mode. Running around trying to find any tool to cram in that little hole that would pop the lock open. Frantically calling Kevin at work with no avail (as if I thought he could will it open, 18 miles away.) I ended up having to get a screwdriver and unscrew the entire knob mechanism, leaving a neat round hole where our door knob used to be. All the while Chloe throwing herself onto the floor screaming bloody murder.

I need a long island iced tea and a joint.

We have great news to report: Chloe successfully walked down the aisle as the flower girl at her cousin Kristin's wedding this past Saturday. She may not have PliƩ'd or tossed the rose petals, but she made it! Everything was beautiful (especially the bride) and we all had a great time.

Chloe was hilarious at their wedding reception. She danced like there was no tomorrow, dragging complete strangers by their coat tails and skirts out to the dance floor. When the music stopped for toasts, she yelled, "Another song! I want one more song! I want to dance!" And her grandma Sue said it was the funniest thing she has even seen in her entire life. And being married to my dad, that says a lot.

Here are a few pics (she was bribed down the aisle with m&m's and a lollipop, which you can see in the fist pic.)

**And Lil' Cuz: We are so, so sorry for the "I want my mommy" commentary (followed by screaming) during your vow exchange. I hope it wasn't as loud to you two as it was to me.


Is it okay to make a correction to your own blog? My aunt reminded me that my cousin's eyes are GREEN. Not BROWN. Sorry Lil Cuz. If it makes you feel any better (it does me) my eyes are also hazel and everyone says they are brown.

Headed to Atlanta

My dear 'Lil Cuz, Kristin, is getting married this weekend in the Atl. It seems like yesterday that she was just a little kid, smiling at me with those big brown eyes. Where does the time go?

We're headed up to Atlanta on Thursday for the big event. Chloe is going to be the flower girl, and we're all a little curious as to her level of cooperation and her behavior in this role. One thing you can count on: there will be lots of pictures.

Here she is, showing off her new hat and gloves. It's going to be a little on the chilly side up there, so we are going to be prepared this time (Last time we went up there, she had to wear socks as mittens.)

Happy Halloween

Chloe and Tucker were hilarious last night. Chloe said, "I go next house. Get more candy?" about 50 times. And, "That's our neighbor," another 50 times. Then Tucker topped off the evening, following Kevin into the house saying, "I go get some beer." (Tucker's mom was real happy about that one.)
