On Saturday we had a lovely afternoon with Sam and Clare and their families, celebrating Chloe's 1st birthday. I can't believe how fast that year has gone. I always remember how exciting and special our boys first birthday were, so it was nice to share it with Chloe and her family.
It was a lovely day to sit outside on the new deck built by Sam (with a little help from Uncle Jim I hear! ;)
The kids had lots of fun eating and playing together. Harri and Callum went exploring in the backyard and found lots of 'dinosaur bones' as they called them!
I don't think Chloe really knew what was going on, but she also had lots of fun eating and lapping up all the attention.
She is a very loved little girl. It was nice to see Brad and Steph who were over from Victoria and to spend some time with Jade before she left to go work in the USA for a year. When Jalen heard she was going to be working at Disneyworld he was very jealous. She told him he would just have to come over to visit her. We wish we could Jade! We hope you enjoy your exciting year away.
Jalen cracked us up as Steph had taken her wide belt off and left it on the couch. He picked it up and goes 'Santa left his belt here!!!', in a very excited voice. Clare and I cracked up laughing and not long afterwards Clare came out cracking up saying that Jay found the tag on it and goes 'oh no - it's not Santa's belt. It's a size S-M and he would be a large, and it also says 'made in China' and Santa makes his own things'. Good thinking Jay! :)
Thank you for the lovely afternoon Sam and Clare and for letting us share Chloe's special birthday with you.
