Before the party Chloe told me what hard work it is to be the birthday girl because you have to welcome the guests and act very excited. The excitement didn't seem forced at all when the first guest arrived. Where did the 'hard work' disappear to?
Cousin rivalry reared it's amusing head when it was time to drop the ball at the beginning of the birthday party soccer game!
Chloe dismissed the idea of a soccer field cake to go with the soccer candles that Marie found. There was no way Chloe was going to eat a green cake - she thinks that artificial color in icing is disgusting. She told me she wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate icing and everyone can pretend it is a muddy field if they want. Nice of her to try to humor us.
