Freezing in Pontotoc

So we're reading books and snacking inside. John enjoys David's crumbs.

34 degrees in Pontotoc...

With a wind chill in the teens. Too cold to play outside, but David and Cousin Madeleine are making do with Elmo DVDs.

They require full concentration. Thanks M.A. and Jimmy!

Thanks, Aunt Sarah & Uncle Brian

David was so excited while admiring himself in his cool new mirror that he was a blur for the camera. John patiently waited his turn and got a clearer picture.

Third Birthday Recap

After a big night of anticipating his third birthday, it was hard to drag David and his party buddies (George and Sock) out of bed this morning.  But, eventually, we did.  And we took him to school with balloons to share with all of his friends.

After supper tonight, we opened gifts.  Gram and Big Daddy gave him some Otis the Tractor books and his very own Otis the Tractor.  He wore a new outfit from Grandaddy and Nana (love that Irish green!), and (though not shown here), he sported his new cowboy boots from MA and Jimmy while he was home.  (Tennis shoes are required at school, alas.)

Mama and Daddy gave David a cool new gear set, like the one he plays with in Valdosta.

And the day ended with a game of Angry Birds on his mama's iPhone, with his special birthday balloon as a backdrop. Tomorrow, it's another exciting day, with a Christmas party at school where Santa will appear.  Mary Beth needs to stop blogging and finish up those snowmen cupcakes!

Birthday lunch at Wendy's

"Chicken fries" and "I-I-I-I-Ice cream!" of course.

The night before turning 3-years-old, David chowed down on pancakes and bacon. Mostly bacon.

Super Friends

We had fun at Manu's 4-year(!), super-hero-themed birthday party the other day. 
Here's David and his buddy, Grady, playing with a cool balloon.

More snuggling with Aunt Sarah

She leaves in the morning, so John had to get in another evening snooze.

Busted! (part II)

Chewing on Christmas tree lights...a day of exploits for the Mitchell brothers.


Opening presents early...

Who likes playing with toy animals?

We do! We do!

It's been that kinda day...

We're all sick. The house is a wreck. Daddy leaves tomorrow for a work trip.

Getting settled

David's a little embarrassed by his new pink bathroom, but likes all the extra space. John, meanwhile, can't believe how far he has to crawl to get somebody's attention!

Watching a DVD with my little brother

On his 8-month birthday.

Dinosaur fun

On a sunny morning. Thanks, Big Daddy!
