Happy 1st Birthday, Alaina!

Alaina turned ONE on November 28th and we had a really fun birthday party for her on November 21st. So many of Alaina's family and friends came to celebrate her big milestone: Grandma and Grandpa from South Carolina, Granny and Granddaddy from Virginia, Grammy and BawBaw from PA, Aunt Cindy and Uncle Bill from PA as well as her cousins and a few family friends from Maryland and Virginia. It was a wonderful 1st birthday and Alaina really liked having everyone here to celebrate with her.

This past Saturday we celebrated her actual birthday in a more quiet fashion with just a cupcake and a couple presents. Alaina LOVED getting her fingers in the chocolate icing and getting the icing all over Mommy. Here are some pictures of our Birthday Girl!

Happy Halloween!

Not only was Saturday Alaina's first Halloween but it was the quintessential Fall day. The weather was warm, there was a slight breeze and every now and then, the sun would peek out from behind the clouds. To top it off, the leaves were beautiful colors and some had even started falling off the trees which meant one thing: play time in the leaf piles! Don't be fooled by these pictures: Alaina wasn't the only one having a good time playing in the leaves; the adults had just as much fun!

When evening came it was time to get dressed up for Trick-or-Treating! Alaina was a pink bunny for her first Halloween and she went Trick-or-Treating with her cousins. Well, she went along for the ride while Lauren and Andrew went Trick-or-Treating but a good time was had by all!
