Happy Valentine's Day

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!! Owen had a little party at his school...so cute! They had cookies, fruit, goldfish, and crackers....they all exchanged Valentines and his teacher fixed all the kids a cute little goodie bag. All the kids had a blast! They danced to music, ate cookies, and chased each other around....just like 2 year olds do!! What a fun day! After school, Owen opened cards from us and his grandparents!! He loves opening presents and cards...he has become a pro at it with all the birthday and Christmas festivities. Valentine's Day is a fun day!! A perfect day to eat candy and chocolate, make cards, bake cookies, and remind us how much we love one another!!! Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Play dough

Owen loves loves loves play dough!!! He loves to build snowmen (add hair, arms, eyes, legs, etc to them), fire trucks, trains, stars, trucks, and circles. Lately we have been doing a lot of play dough....he is not a big TV watcher so it is a great activity for him to do while I am fixing dinner! We have tried to get him into watching Sesame Street, Max and Ruby Yo Gabba Gabba...etc...but nothing will do....he watches it for maybe 1 min max and then he is off to something else! He is a very hands on child....loves art, puzzles, books, trains, blocks, play dough, stacking anything, feeding his friends, grilling out on his grill, playing hide and seek, painting, dancing,and playing outside. Anything that requires him to stay still for an extended amount of time you can just about forget it! ha! He is so funny and so busy...his imagination is always running! At the end of the day I have to be quite honest, I am ready to go to bed when he does! ha! Anyway...love this age and I love how his vocabulary and imagination expand everyday!

Celebrating the Big 2!

Over the past two weeks, we have really celebrated Owen's 2nd birthday. We went out to Ham's on his birthday, cupcakes several times throughout the week with friends and family that stopped by for a mini-birthday party, and his fire truck birthday party that we had last Friday!!! He loved his birthday and loved having all of his friends over...what a wonderful time we all had! I gave Owen the choice of what kind of cake he wanted....every time he gave me the same answer....fire truck...so fire truck cakes is what he had times 2!!! We had a family birthday party planned, however my dad was hospitalized for 6 days and we had to change our plans. Thank God he is at home and feeling much better! Here are a few pics of the celebrations over the course of the past 2 weeks!!! Happy 2nd Birthday sweet Owen, we love you so much!
