Chloe Post: "snow, snow, snow, snow, SNOW"

I'm quoting a song from the movie "White Christmas" because Mommy said that this dress makes me look like Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen at the end of the movie. I feel fancy!



It's also fitting because it is indeed a WHITE Christmas. We had 23 inches of snow which Mommy and Daddy said was a LOT OF SNOW. They worked hard to dig out our car and shovel our driveway and now both of them are complaining about their backs and shoulders. I feel fine.

Anyway, it's a good thing they worked so hard, or else I would have missed Aunt Diane's Christmas dinner! She and Uncle John always like it when I come to visit and I was happy to see them, too! I also got to visit with Aunt Gretchen (whose present I tried to steal) and Uncle Brian. He's funny! We laughed at each other a lot.

I had such a good time!

Chloe Post: Ladies Day Out


I love hanging out with Aunt Diane! She always gives me lots of hugs and kisses and likes to hold me and buy me dresses. She loves dresses! I was really happy that she invited Mommy and me to go Christmas shopping with her in Cape May and Atlantic City. We shopped the bargains! I saw a Santa in Cape May, but he wasn't the real Santa. His beard was fake. I saw the real Santa already with Mommy and Mom-Mom, but I didn't spoil the good times by telling people that the dude was an imposter. Mommy said that wouldn't be polite.

I was such a good girl that Mommy bought me a Ginger Girl doll and some new shoes at the Carter's Outlet. I think Aunt Diane got me a present at Carter's, too, but she kept it under wraps... guess I will have to wait. She probably had to sneak it into the house - Uncle John says she spoils me!

Ain't no such thing, Uncle John. Ain't no such thing.

Chloe Post: OH MY GOODNESS

SANTA SENT ME A MESSAGE!!!!!

Mommy said it's because I am such a good girl!! I love Santa!




P.S. From Mommy... the elves must have made an error, my good girl isn't 1 year old yet... but who am I to correct Santa?

Chloe Post: The Discovery of Sugar Cookies


Today, we had flooding, so my school was closed... so Mommy had to work from home so she could take care of me. We had a good time and I was helpful by taking a 2.5 hour nap. Boy, I'm glad I did - Mommy took me to an office Christmas party and I was working hard!


Here you see me enjoying my sugar cookie (why has no one told me about these before?!) and goofing with Auntie Lu, but I had some serious responsibilties, too...


...I helped Aunt Melanie by serving as the un-official greeter for the event and spent most of my time mingling from table to table. Everyone said I am very cute and walking quite well for someone who is only 10.5 months old. Mommy explained that I am trying to get into the Panda room at school, so I need to be confident in my gait. It's important to have goals.


It sure was a fun day... I was so exhausted that I went to sleep at 6.45 - I never do that!

Chloe Post: Philly Christmas Traditions



Today, Mommy and the Phi Sigs took me to the old Wanamaker Building to see the holiday light show and hear the organ. Then, we went upstairs to see the Dickens Village. I really liked it!



I also really liked lunch. Aunt Gretchen let me try all kinds of yummy things - I love pickles!

Next, we visited Aunt Diane and Uncle John and they gave me an early Christmas present... and then Mommy and I visited Aunt Jennifer at the craft show. Whew! I am exhausted!! Christmas is hard work!!

Chloe Post: I am a Sailor


I *love* bath time. Bath time rocks! I like to splash and try to eat the bubbles and try to drink the water and splash and play with toys and try to eat the sponge and splash and just everything! Because I love the bath and I am a good girl, Mommy cashed in a bunch of her Pampers points to get me these cool boats. Daddy said that Mommy was wasting her time by typing in all of those codes, but I think it was worth it! Mommy said that I got these boats because of perseverence.

Whatever. Just call me CAPTAIN.
