Birthday Girl

Lexi is two years old!!! My sweet baby girl is growing up. We had her birthday party a day early and it was such a great time. Grandma, Pa Pa, Uncle Robert, Aunt Lea and cousins, Alex, Adalynn, and Annalee came from Tahlequah. Lexi's Godfamily, Ward, Pattie, Bradley, Jackson, and Dillon also came. She was not really sure what a birthday was, but I think now she has a good idea and she likes it!

We had a Dora the Explorer birthday party. I decorated the house with Dora, Boots and Swiper. She really liked the decorations, she was sure to show Swiper to everyone as they came in the door. When we sang Happy Birthday, she pretty much looked at us like we were crazy, she was not so sure about the song...I know we are not a musical family, but a smile would not have been so hard. Ha ha When it came time to blow out the candle, (yes there was only one candle that was the shape of a number 2) she blew and it went great. She loved her Dora cupcake cake. She even snuck back later and took the last sliver of cake off the cake stand and into her mouth.



Lexi loved opening the presents, she would take them and show them to Uncle Robert after she opened each one. Maybe because he is the best at opening toy boxes. She also was very careful to pick up the wrapping paper as to not leave a mess on the floor. That's my girl! She got a tea set, books, puzzles, coloring books, colors, stickers, a baby, a purse, Finding Nemo and an adjustable Little Tykes basketball goal. She is a very blessed very loved little girl.

The box that the basketball goal came in was an instant tunnel. All the kids were crawling through it and having such a good time. A lifetime of giggles!

The kids also spent some time outside playing with the basketball goal and bubbles. Annalee is three weeks older than Lexi and the two of them have such a good time together. Here is a video of them blowing bubbles.
