Happy Birthday Tess!

What a wonderful day we've had here at the Mitchell home! Tess turned 3 today. It's crazy to think our baby girl is that old already. It feels like yesterday when I was out walking in a foot of snow in Rexburg trying to induce labor - - - and it worked! Tess had a fun day picking all of the activities to do here at home today. She got to have a little friend over tonight and we all went to Red Robin for dinner. The big prize was her new bike! She has been wanting one for quite some time, so it totally made her day. Thanks to Papa and Grandma - she's all set with a helmet and knee pads. Thanks to Uncle Chris and Aunty Amy - she has a fun basket and a crazy loud horn for her bike. I think she's set! She's really looking forward to Nana flying in on Friday. She will be here for 8 days, so we are all really excited to see her. We're all headed to Tucson Saturday to have a little birthday party for Tess with Fafa and Punkin.

Not much else has been going on here. We've all had our colds a few times over. I ended up with Strep, Porter had another ear infection, and Owen ended up with pink eye! Knock on wood, but I think we're all on the mends now. I sure hope so! It's starting to warm up here, so that should help.

Porter got registered for spring T-ball. This will be his first year playing T-ball, so we're anxious to see how he likes it. The season doesn't start until March, so stay tuned for more info on that. He's looking forward to a little Valentine party in his class next week.

Owen continues to do well and is growing daily. He's really got his little army crawl down pat. He will get up on his knees and rock back and forth, but he's not gutsy enough yet to get those knees moving. He's just following the path of his two siblings and getting mobile a little late. No complaints here by me. Once they are mobile, there's no stopping them!

We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying all that cold weather up North! We'll be thinking of you when we put on our shorts next month! The kids send kisses to everyone!

Sounds like everyone is doing great. Our grandbabies are very sweet. I would give anything to be in the cold northwest. It was 80 here yesterday and I am not looking forward to the summer heat!!

Why haven't i seen this earlier. Jenna told me how you tricked Tess into thinking she was having a party by taking Cyrena that night. Funny.

Who's that really cute little girl in the purple jacket??? She's just adorable. And so are the other three munchkins!! Thanks again for taking Cyrena. You have such a wonderful family.
