Owen is 2!

Owen turned two years old this week! It was actually a few days ago, and I've never done a birthday post so late. But perhaps you'll forgive me; life is a little busier these days.

We've had colds and coughs around here, so we had to postpone Owen's birthday party. But his grandma and grandpa (Jeff's folks) and Uncle Kevin still came over to help us celebrate. It was a fun time, in spite of the sniffles.

Here is Owen with his "Birthday Boy" book:

Opening presents was fun. He got the hang of it quickly...

The cake turned out yummy! And Jeff did a great job decorating it.
As for the cake itself, I used this recipe, with a few modifications. I used sprouted whole wheat flour, sucanat in place of the sugar, and coconut oil instead of canola oil. It turned out great. I topped it with this frosting from Wardeh at GNOWFGLINS.

Happy birthday, sweet boy. We love you like crazy!

Happy Birthday, Owen. My Owen is peeking over my shoulder and drooling over the chocolate cake-- his favorite.
