Here’s an extreme close-up of our niece Perrin, who is spending the night with us tonight, the first time. The title of tonight’s entry refers to the fact that she’ll be sleeping in Chloe’s bed. As such, we decided to call her “Little Chloe” and have anointed Ella to be her big sister.
As I write it’s 8:30pm. Big sister Ella and “Little Chloe” are snug under blankets watching the Grinch. For a chilly Friday night in December, it doesn’t get much better than this. That is, unless you add in the fact that after dinner we all ventured to Trophy Cupcakes at U Village to pick up cupcakes for dessert. When the idea was first being bantered about, I’m pretty sure “Little Chloe” didn’t think we were serious. Once we explained that in OUR house we spend every Friday night going out for cupcakes and staying up all night to eat them, I think some confidence in the idea was had.
Apparently in “Little Chloe’s” house, they don’t often go out at night for cupcakes.
