Can you believe that we remembered to take a family picture before the chaos of the party ensued?!
Chloe invited her little girlfriends to CEC for a rockin' time!
This series of photos makes me laugh.
I'll be honest, it was a little chaotic with the kids running around playing games, but it was honestly the least stressed I've been with planning a party. Besides, the girls loved the chaos! The most stressful part of the party was transporting Chloe's birthday cake from our house to the party. I was just glad that it made its way to CEC in one piece. It was an awesome cake and fit the party theme perfectly. (Just so you know, the theme and venue were planned by Chloe. I was making grand plans for a pumpkin patch birthday party...There's always next year! (laughs maniacally))
The girls and Evan grabbed a bite to eat while we waited for the
Chuck E. Cheese!!! "Modern" Chuck E. is a far cry from the Chuck E. that I remember. Who knew that one day Chuck E. would drop the weight and don a pair of skinny jeans?!
Then it was time for the birthday boys and girls to play a little air guitar. I love this moment captured between Chloe and our awesome hostess!
Chloe was presented with her rock star medallion.
A picture with Chuck E. and our little rock star!
Chloe also got a chance to go into the ticket blaster.
The girls broke into their "swag bags" and Chloe opened her gifts. I'm sure that the cleaning crew that evening was cursing us...feathers everywhere!!!
Here were a few more pictures that we took as the party was ending.
After the party ended, a few of us decided to the keep rock star theme going as we followed Chloe to Claire's in the mall to get her ears pierced. Personally, I'm not one of those parents that is apprehensive about piercing a child's ears too young. My aunt had my ears pierced as a baby, and as an adult, I'm extremely glad that she did. I don't remember "the pain" and that's the way I like it. However, my husband had his own opinions on when a girl should get her ears pierced (go figure), so I respected his feelings. Chloe has been begging since she was about two years old to get her ears pierced and we all agreed that her 6th birthday was the right time to do it.
Her nerves were starting to kick in at this moment. Maybe there was a little too much hype leading to this moment...
She started to cry even before her first ear was pierced anticipating what was to come.
Our little rock star...all pierced! She got her birth stone studs, which just so happen to be pink:)
I know that it's hard to tell from this picture, but she absolutely adores her new earrings. She has insisted that I style her hair in certain ways that showcase her new earrings.
If you made it through this insanely long post, bless you:)
Also, we want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all the little ladies, friends, and family that made Chloe's birthday special (even if it was just in spirit). We love y'all and are so thankful for your presence in our lives. We hope that you had a rockin' time at Chloe's party!
