No!!!! Time has flown by too fast

My little Chloe Belle is 5 today! Can you believe it? I sure cannot. But, I am so thankful that God has given us these 5 precious years to be her mommy and daddy. We have seen Him do some pretty mighty things these 5 years and we are eternally grateful for God’s ever abounding mercy, grace, and love to our family.

I remember my short little 6 month old walking and everyone saying, “What in the world!? Walking already?” She has always had to keep up with her big brother and hasn’t stopped.

Chloe tested into kindergarten in August and we felt it best to let her go instead of waiting to this fall. I am so thankful for that choice. She is reading so well and is eager to learn, for the most part! She loves to play the piano and has really enjoyed making jewelry on her own.

The best news from the last 5 years is that our Chloe accepted Jesus as her Savior on Pearl Harbor Day (December 7th). What a thrill to know that this sweet little blonde will be with us in eternity.

We are looking forward to as many years as the Lord gives us with you, Chloe. And, we look forward to seeing God use you in mighty ways. Stay yielded to Him and honor and obey. We love you and hope you have a wonderful birthday! Love, Mommy and Daddy
