Chloe is 12!! WHAT??

I was 21 years old when I had Chloe. I had NO idea what I was doing nor was I prepared at all for being a parent but on September 5, 1999 at 4:18 p.m. Chloe Valee Neilson was born!
This year Chloe decided to celebrate her birthday with the Wilshire Youth group at the annual lake day!

I promise no alcoholic beverages were consumed! Even though everyone is looking a little rough! hahaha
They had fun tubing on the Goodpastures boat (sorry I did not get any pics of that).  Karri Jo (one of Chloe's favorite people in the world) cooked out hamburger and hot dogs and then they had a fun filled game of water balloon volleyball!
Then we celebrated with COOKIE CAKE!

For the day of her actual birthday she and her friend Alexus, who share the same birthday (they are only 13 hours apart), celebrated with a their "lunch crew" with a joint party (thrown together VERY quickly). Alexus mom is serving in the military in Egypt and she is staying with her grandma. I wanted Chloe to feel like she has a lot of friends at school because she has had a couple incidents with these two boys at school that have made her a little apprehensive when going to school. So at the last minute I kinda through this little birthday party for her and Alexus and all the great girls she eats with every day from her elementary.

It has been our tradition to go out for Birthday Dinner or Birthday Breakfast! Chloe picked birthday dinner at:
