Happy Birthday Chloe! It's hard to believe that she can get her license to drive with a parent now! We've had a really busy week with Mother's Day lunch at our house Sunday and her birthday Thursday and we had our family birthday party over at Harmon and Jeanie's this year. (A huge thanks to them and Kara for making the delicious spaghetti and salad for last night's partee :)).
I added some photos of the past two weekends too. Chloe's got a couple more weeks of school then Kara and I will take Stella, Chloe and cousin Audrey to NYC for a show, museums etc. This summer Chloe will do Junior Golf (maybe a lesson in there too), go to a camp in Little Rock for the publications staff (yay, she was one of 5 chosen in her class) and a week at Ferncliff with Audrey. It'll be a busy summer for sure.
|Thank goodness after 22 plus years of being in the Smith family, I got action footage of the infamous Indian Leg Wrestling|
match that Memaw has been legendary for. Here she is battling oldest grandson Whit. She won can't you tell?
|At the beginning of the war...Look at Granddad watching the action....lol!!|
|Chloe went down to Memaw of course.|
|Here she is battling August. She won again.|
|And Stella was the last to loose. That's Memaw 4, grandkids 0|
|Chloe and Stella helping August with charades behind the scenes on Mother's Day|
|August loves Chloe's games...this is Pictionary, of course|
|Stella's a big game player too!|
|Chloe's new game with the dogs is to get a muffin pan and cover each|
one with a treat and a toy. Makes for a fun time for the dogs.
|Whit ran off at the last minute. Looks like Jackie's having a good time...|
|Chloe and Buddy from the Dog-a-Roo at Shelby Farms last Saturday...they participated|
in the Look-a-like contest but didn't win. SO cute!
|Buddy got a gold star for being on his best behavior at the dog festival. He does have|
some social issues but he did great.

|Biscuit at the Parkin Archeological State Park yesterday|
|Chloe wanted her cake done like this sketch of the Lord of the Rings'|
Legolas...it says, "if you can read this, the dwarf fell off".
|Kara and the kids and I wrote cute poems about Chloe turning 14, they were all darling. Memaw had a huge puzzle-style|
scavenger hunt game, the kids loved it. Memaw always has really good games.

|Mother's Day at church, August got to help with the offering. He did great!|
|Chloe LOVED her cake made by Cathy Helton|
|Aunt Kara does it again, gets Chloe a top favorite gift...Business cards|
that have her number for animal boarding and training. Chloe loved it!
|We got her this JRRTolkien shirt and she loves it. It says "that's what I'm Tolkien about".|
|Chloe told some really good stories during her birthday party. She's a|
better story teller than me thank goodness.
