After breakfast, Grandma and her cousins called her on Skype and watched her open the cards and gifts they had sent earlier.
Of course, what birthday is complete without cake. This cake came courtesy of Aunti Flor, our landlady.

Alayna and the rest of the Wonderful Blue Tigers! We had a birthday party with the SSM students at Fun Night. The theme was Alayna's Birthday Olympics. There was the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as teams intensely competed for the prize in events such as shot put (with a cotton ball), javelin (a toothpick), discus (a paper plate), and equestrian and synchronized swimming (both too difficult to explain in this post).
Just before the torch was extinguished in the closing ceremonies.
All of the contestants. (Many are wearing their gold medals as crowns.)
Happy Birthday, Sugarplum!
We love you!
