Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

It is hard to believe that Owen is going to be one already. His actual birthday is this coming Sunday, 12/21. He has had an incredible year and amazes us everyday. He is such a joy and a little charmer! He knows that all he has to do is smile and it melts our hearts. Here is a collection of pictures from this past year set to music. Thanks again to Pam- I heard this song on her blog and thought it was perfect for Owen's first video. The only problem is the song says "darling Sean" at the end... it's still the perfect song. Enjoy!

Vacation and other stuff

For the past week we have been "vacationing" at home. We did have lots of relaxing but there was some business mixed in there as well. We headed to Maine first where Ben had some interviews for next year. We had a late Thanksgiving and Maddie and Owen enjoyed hanging out with their cousins.

After Maine, we headed to Massachusetts where we spent time with more family. Friday was Ben and my 10 year anniversary so Nonnie and Papa watched the kids so we could have a nice dinner out.

On Saturday we celebrated Owen's birthday a little early.

We got home last night and then headed to work again this morning. Today we had another ultrasound to check on the new baby. They needed to get some additional pictures that were more clear today since we're further along than last time. They also did a 3D picture for the fun of it... it's a little funny looking but the ultrasound tech assured us that it is very cute for only 20 1/2 weeks along...

And lastly, but not least, we got Owen's birthday pictures done before we left. I don't think he felt very good and didn't smile very much but we managed to get some cute pictures anyway!
