Dear Chloe, I'll never forget...

Earlier this week, when you totally unexpectedly gathered the family together outside after dinner, to announce you had prepared a presentation.

I immediately had tears in my eyes when you began reading from the six 3 x 5" note cards:

Here are some appreciations for the family.

Chayse: I appreciate you for being a great brother and always trying to make me laugh when I am hurt.
{At which point Chayse embarassedly continued to ride his scooter, trying to ignore your words.}

Camden: I appreciate you for your cute laugh.

Daddy: I appreciate you for turning around the car and getting my bunny when it flew out the window.
{A story in and of itself.}

Mommy: I appreciate you for giving us breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner.

I appreciate the whole family for loving each other!

{Yes, I just snuck into your room to search for the speech to copy down.}

***

{Today you are 7 years, 8 months, and 29 days old. I love you.}
