One more for the Birthday Boy...

Just one more birthday post for Owen, bare with me.   Here he was marching out into the living room where his present was waiting..

We got him a basketball hoop, but the balloons were quite a distraction.  Maybe we should have just gone with those.

He finally got around to his hoop...and as long as we are clapping and cheering for every basket he makes, he likes it.

Cake Time...

Craig and Sheri came to town for a quick visit, so we celebrated Owen's birthday with them a day early. 

I attempted to make one of those giant cupcakes but the top was too top heavy, so I just used the bottom piece and made it a mini cake. 

 Thinking about it...

Going for it...

Got it!

Don't worry, he didn't eat the entire cake.  We took it away and gave him a small piece to see if he'd eat the cake part instead of just the frosting.

Nope, he was all done.  Frosting is filling you know, and more fun to paint all over your body.

One Year...

It's hard to believe this little thing joined us one year ago.  So. so. tiny.

He's not so little anymore.  Happy First Birthday Owen! We love you.

Two Seven

I turned 27 last week. 

We waited until the weekend to celebrate, but while Brett was at work Owen and I ate lots of cake.

 He is definitely  my child.
I had a relief society meeting that night and came home to find a Red Velvet Bundt Cake and some fun surprises from Brett!
Over the weekend we went to dinner with friends at Malawais Cafe in Provo to celebrate. Great company, great pizza and unlimited diet cokes! We got a babysitter for Owen (first time we actually paid for a sitter and worth every penny). It was sooo nice to eat at a restaurant without flying utensils, plates, and food. Or trying to keep Owen from climbing out of his high chair.
