Mitchell Boys: Monday

David loves his stickers (thanks, Big Daddy). John snacks on Cheerios, discretely. Ned unwinds with some iPhone reading.

Trees planted

And well-protected.

The beginning of our pecan grove

Ned and Jimmy are spending today planting 7 trees. Happy birthday to MB!

Weekend flashback

The boys enjoyed exploring the top end of the driveway while the weather was reasonably pleasant this past weekend.

Night in the ER with David

He tripped in his room (we're still not sure how) and bit his tongue pretty badly. We went to the ER (bc, naturally, this happened after Urgent Care hours). He received pain meds and an Rx for antibiotics, and tomorrow MB will go shopping for smooth, soft, and cold foods. Yogurt, ice cream, pudding, and popsicles are on his menu the next few days. This may be the most "fun" injury he's ever had. For his parents, though, it was traumatic.

Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day

I'm smiling, even though my Mama is so slow to post event photos of me. Sheesh!
or, better yet, Happy 6 Year Engagement Anniversary to Mama and Daddy!

Double fisting

John likes to putter around the house with not one, but TWO pacifiers. Because, why take chances?

Thanks for the Valentine's visit, Grandaddy & Nana!

Dinner, especially dessert, was delicious!

Remembering when David was so tiny

iPhones are better than wallets because you can have thousands of photos of the kids.

Birthday Date Night at the Beechwood

Mary Beth and Ned enjoyed a fabulous night out, courtesy of our rock-star babysitting friends. Neighbor Sandy came over and watched David on his home turf, while John traveled over to Lauchlin's and Olivia's and crashed their Friday night pizza party. Thanks, Y'all!

Loving the fire

and the soft new rug!

Birthday sign

Grandpa and Granny had a small Japanese Magnolia in their backyard on East Jane Street, and they said it always bloomed for my birthday. Same in Vicksburg!

John's first scrambled eggs

He's not a fan. It may be the first thing he's ever NOT eaten.

Super Bowl vs. toys

The toys were winning big, even before the power outage.

Birthday Flashback

Again, I use my "no real news" excuse for this week. Here are some flashback photos from David's birthday in December.

Trying to get some of Brother's pop tart

after already cleaning the floor underneath the table. I'm hoping the TV will distract him long enough for me to make my move.

Beach Flashback

In downloading yesterday's photos from my small camera, I ran across some beach photos that I never retrieved from the memory card.  I'll post them here so grandparents can get a photo fix. We really have no news worth sharing this week; most of us have just been sick, sick, sick. Beach memories are more interesting.

Boys in Plaid

We celebrated Olivia's birthday tonight, and the boys wore plaid just for the occasion.
