You had me from hello!!!

January 18, 2009....Owen Thomas Carroll came into this world and ever since then you have had daddy wrapped around your little finger. Happy Father's Day to the best daddy and husband!! We love you!!!

Father's day 1 year ago....Brent's 1st
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers out there!!! Father's Day is an awesome day...Brent is a wonderful husband, father, and best friend....I could not ask for him to be any better of a father. Sorry, I know this may be a bit sickening, but I truly adore the person that my husband is. He and Owen have this special bond....when he hears the garage door open he immediately jumps up from whatever he is doing and starts saying "daddy...daddy", after breakfast, he always goes over to daddy's picture and tries to give him a sip of his milk (no idea why he does this), and if he hears someone else say daddy his face lights up because he thinks he gets to see his daddy.....too cute!!! Owen loves his Daddy so much...Brent gives him his bath every night....and let me tell you...mommy doesn't do it right....they have a BALL in the bath....every night I hear them up there playing with toys and Owen squealing and laughing to the top of his lungs....he loves it when his daddy give him baths!!! Not only does Daddy give him the best baths but he also reads to him, puts him to bed, and plays trucks and blocks with him as soon as he gets home from work. He is the best dad ever!!We love you!

I love my family of 3!

Birthday Parties

This past week, Owen and I have been privileged to attend two very important birthday parties. Teagon, Owen's friend from Kindermusik turned one, and Daelyn and Deacon Denton (Owen's 2nd cousins) turned one as well. What fun we had....cake, food, water tables, sprinkler, car toys... Owen absolutely had a ball and we got to visit with great friends and family members. What a FUN time we had!! We love birthday parties...Owen loves balloons, decorations, and he even ate his whole piece of birthday cake...WOW...more than he ate on his own birthday!! Happy 1st birthday Teagon, Daeyln, and Deacon!!! We love you!!
Owen fell in love with the cozy car...Santa might have to come early :-)

Sweet Daelyn loving her birthday cake

Chef Owen

Just call me Chef Owen....I think I will help mommy make a cheesecake....and that he did!!! One of my favorite hobbies is you can imagine, trying to cook and chase a one year old around can put forth an interesting and challenging task.....sometimes dinners are very simple, and sometimes if Brent is lucky, I will venture out and get creative :-) Owen is used to me cooking....generally I give him something to do on the floor beside me or I keep a close eye on him while he circles the downstairs in his "tractor".... but this time I decided it was time to get him involved!!! He LOVED helping....wasn't a huge fan of the sound of the mixer....but loved watching, imitating, and in the end he had beater to lick and upon his request he wanted to "dip more"...haha too funny!!! What a fun morning that was...can't wait to make more treats....I think he really enjoyed licking the batter....what do you think?
Yum!!! Brings back memories as a child (okay I still LOVE to do this)....what fun it was to lick the batter....

mom....what happened to your low sugar rule?

Helping mom...what fun this is!!!

Pool or Water Hose??...ummmmm

This past week, Owen and I ventured off to Toys R Us to pick up several "necessities"...We decided to pick up a plastic pool and pool toys to go along with it.....Who knew a ten dollar pool and a water hose could provide so much entertainment??? Owen loves the water....sometimes it is a bit much to pack up EVERYTHING just to go to the pool for an here is our little pool in the backyard for the days we just want to take a dip and have some fun playing in the water!!!
Loving the water hose

and the pool too!!!
