Party like it's 1999....

Well except for sweet Chloe Jane wasn't even born in 1999. We celebrated her 6th birthday 2 weeks ago and I am trying to figure out when did I lose my cool points?

You know what I am talking about, the point where you go from me being someone who is cool to a dreaded ADULT-yikes. All of a sudden at the party, Chloe didn't want to hang with me or the other "adults" she wanted to hang with her friends. I was left to sit at the adult table--I remember when I still got to be at the "kid table." Hey I still like to color and play Candyland!

However, I will point out that I was still cool enough to be invited to the playroom to build the Buzz Lightyear Lego figure which took me about 1.2 million hours to complete. That little bugger was harder than it looked.

By the way, Chloe Jane is my faux niece. I mean she really is my niece except I don't have a sister but I have a cousin who is like a sister and Chloe is her daughter.

Here are a few pics from the party.

Here is my uncle Jerry-love him. Note it was a Luau theme party.He doesn't just wear this straw out on an average day.
And here is my beautiful Grandma who took the Luau theme VERY seriously. Please let me look like her when I am 82. She says the key is Baby Oil and Oil of Olay.
And here are the ladies minus Chloe because we are not cool enough. Why do I look so tall in this picture?
And here are the "cool kids".... (Chloe is on the right)

And when is the last time you tried to take a picture of 5 moving 5 years old? Right. It is a challenge. This is the best of the bunch ;-)
Here is the bday gal's cupcake--yummy!
And here is the bday girl...may all her wishes come true! And judging by how we spoil her, I am sure that all of her wishes will indeed come true.
