Happy Birthday Owen!


Yesterday Owen turned two. I should've posted yesterday, but it seems that anymore our Saturdays are jammed full of activities.

Instead of cake, we had homemade apple pies made by my grandma and we gave him ice cream with chocolate sauce on top--yum! He remembered the hat from nursery last Sunday and ran to get it when we told him we were going to sing "Happy Birthday" to him.

For his birthday, his great-grandparents bought him a Radio Flyer Hot Wheels type car which he loves. (So does his sister.)

He also got lots of clothes from his other grandparents. Lots of cute, cute, much needed clothing. In fact, I was thinking about how wonderful my mom and dad are to buy my kids (and even me and my husband) clothes. I think that we would own about five pieces of clothing between all of us without their clothing us--so thanks!

And, we got him two shirts. Not just any two shirts, but BYU T-shirts! About a month ago Owen decided he only wanted to wear BYU clothing. This was a tricky proposition because he only owns three BYU T-shirts. I started to have to convince him that different clothing was paying homage to BYU with its color scheme. Luckily, little boy clothing has lots and lots of dark blue. He was excited to wear one of his BYU shirts yesterday (they won by the way!) and he even slept in it.


Happy Birthday to my sweet, sweet, growing too quickly, little boy!

Happy Birthday, Owen! I always forget that he's only 2 weeks older than Mikayla because he's so big and she's so petite. And Owen in BYU attire is absolutely ADORABLE, so once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OWEN!!!

My little boy is growing up! With as good as I am with remembering birthdays, I totally spaced calling yesterday! Good thing he's only 2 and won't hold it against me!

So glad your grandma was there to celebrate and how cool is that bike! It's totally Owen! He's just missing a ball in his hand!
