Happy 2nd Birthday, Alaina!

Alaina turned TWO on November 28th and we had a really fun "Blue's Clues" themed birthday party for her that afternoon. So many of Alaina's family came to Maryland to celebrate her big day: MeMaw and PePaw, MeMe and BawBaw, Uncle JB and Melissa, as well as Aunt Cindy and her cousins. It was a wonderful 2nd birthday and Alaina really liked having everyone here to celebrate with her. And what fantastic gifts she received! Everything from clothes to books, to stuffed animals and Baby Alive, to a kid-tough camera and a LeapFrog laptop, to some Zhu Zhu Pets. She isn't spoiled at all!

Alaina's babysitter baked her a beautiful Blue's Clues chocolate cake. Not only was it gorgeous but it tasted so good too!

Gobble Gobble!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We hosted Thanksgiving again this year and were very excited to have Rob's mother, stepfather, as well as my parents come to our house for dinner. Rob and his mother did a fantastic job with the turkey and everyone enjoyed spending the day together. Alaina just loved having her MeMe, BawBaw, PePaw, and MeMaw around her. Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving:
