Once upon a time, long long ago (13 years)

there was a Queen who had 3 children (ages 14, 16 and 19).

One day, this lucky Queen received the best surprise ever:

she and the King, were going to have another baby girl.

King Steven declared the new princess would be named Chloe Cozette Freeman

When princess Chloe arrived,

the nurses voted her fairest in the land (hospital).

From the moment of her birth,
princess Chloe's beauty inspired the Queen to become a photographer,
like unto Ann Geddes.

Hundreds of dollars were spent on film and developing over the years,

until the merciful invention of digital photography.

The Princess was clothed in finery

from The Gap, Nordstrom and Gymboree

Princess Chloe grew exceedingly fair and lovely.

As she grew in stature, she was truly the light of their lives.

She was schooled in piano, dance, swimming and soccer,

but nothing surpassed her love of art (or dogs).

She was hailed for her fine artistic skills and excelled in academics.

Chloe had many friends

and delighted in hanging out

with the other princesses her age.

Happy Birthday Dear Chloe!! What a cute baby you were...and you are such a beautiful young woman now! I love the photos of you with all of the doggies, too--so cute!

Happy Birthday D-dub, clever post mom. I loved all of the photos. The ones from when Chloe was granted the nickname D-Dub (from that song by Eiffel 65 in 1999) are always fun to look at and I loved her modern day photo shoot. I totally agree with Chris that life would be boring without our little caboose Chlo.

Now wait a minute!!!

Is this the same surprise when my girls came down the elevator at the Decoto building and said "Guess who's pregnant, Sister Freeman!" I replied, "you do not say things that are not true!" "Really mom, they announced it to us in Young Women." "Don't tell your dad he will worry!!!" ;.)

She has grown to a beautiful young women.

Happy Birthday Chloe

Susan, your comment is hilarious! you speak for a lot of people . . . I shocked and worried quite a few 40 something gals in the Ward, I am sure.

Cute Chloe ... have a D-Dub celebration! Stay close to your parents and sisters during your teenage years; you'll be the better for it. You're lucky to have them, but I think you know that!
