Last year Owen turned 2 the day after we moved into our new home. And his "celebration" if we can even call it that left much to be desired. We had dinner at Moe's since my kitchen was in the midst of being painted and unpacked. His "cake" was made of fig newtons and icing. Wouldn't you love to see pictures of that? Me too. But I didn't even take my camera. As I said, lackluster......
So hopefully this year made up for that in some way. We still didn't have a huge party because Owen would not enjoy that, but we did have cake and presents and a camera.
Here we are making icing on Saturday morning. The kids were super helpful. They bugged me constantly to lick the beaters and even spilled powdered sugar all over the counter and floor.
Owen LOVED his Spiderman cake......until it was time to eat it.
Todd gently persuaded him to try it and got him to eat it by trading off bites. I think it's safe to say that it wasn't his favorite thing in the world:
He may not have loved the cake, but he did LOVE this alarm clock.
That could be because it's the coolest alarm clock ever!
Thanks to our family and friends who came to help celebrate.
You guys rock and I think this year went a little better than the fig newton fiasco of 2011.
