Birthday, Ice, Ew toNew #16

we celebrated owen's 2nd bday on sunday...i an't believe he's 2 already! here are a few pics. all i can say is, we should have saved the money from the presents and bought him balloons. good grief! that's all the child said, 'boon, boon, boon. ma, boon! ma, ma, ma, BOON!!!' oy...he's flipping out right now standing next to me looking at the balloons in the pictures!



oh, and we're frozen into our home. we had a bit of freezing rain yesterday morning. mich had off from school. but the roads weren't that bad. so they planned to open school at 10 this morning. no such luck. i'm not sure we can even get out of the driveway. things are melting quickly, however, so it might be ok to get out a bit later.
and, if you've made it this far,
now for the EW to NEW #16...

clock from Goodwill at 1/2 price day, so $1...i'm sure it served a cute purpose back in the days of mauve, slate blue and ducks...

but for today, we'll add a coat of red paint, two coats of black, a little sandpaper, some kraft paper, a flower and a stamped phrase...

enjoy today!

Wish Owen a belated happy birthday! I always give little ones an empty box and a balloon for their birthdays. That seems to be the hot gift. ;o)

In regard to your Ew to New...you know my address. Cool?
