Calleigh's Birthday Celebrations

Calleigh's second birthday was a huge success! She loved all her presents and we had a great day. 
When Calleigh woke up in the morning we all went into her room wearing party hats and singing Happy Birthday.. I don't think she really knew what to think but I enjoyed it.
We brought her downstairs to where all her presents were laid out and she had such an excited look on her face.

Opening the presents didn't go as well as planned and I ended up opening most of them as Calleigh was more interested in throwing balloons at my head. But she did manage to rip at a few. The best part was when we took her into the other room where we had set up her new toy kitchen and table and chairs. She was so excited and went straight over to the table to sit with her kitties.
After all the presents had been opened Calleigh spent some time playing with them all before having a well needed nap in the teepee we brought her. It was the cutest thing. I didn't even know she was asleep until I walked past and saw her in there fast off with her arms wrapped around her steering wheel.

When she woke up we let her blow out her candles.. which she did very well and then we all tucked into the gorgeous cake!

As Calleigh's birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year, and this was to be our first one living here in America, we all had a Thanksgiving dinner. Calleigh didn't eat much (I think she was too full of cake) but nevertheless it was a great dinner.
Calleigh then spent the rest of the night playing with her new toys in her teepee (she loves that thing) before heading off to bed.
I am so happy with how the day went. I knew it would be a little different because family wouldn't be there but Calleigh was happy and that's all that mattered in the end.
