Sick kiddos make us sad

David doesn't have the rash...yet. Wish us luck this weekend!

Halloween Flashback (or Flashforward?)

Team Mitchell had a great time at Team Lindsay's Halloween party this past Saturday. We went as a Full House. Get it? (Enlarge the photo and you can see the Ace of Hearts on my belly.) If you don't notice the baby card, we're the Dead Man's Hand.

Mmm, grapes, and pretty fall zinnias and the fun fall tablecloth (we keep it rolled back on David's end of the table during meals to make clean up of all the sticky messes easier).

Halloween Prep

David worked on a pumpkin cake with Miss Stephanie this afternoon. He seriously concentrated for the important job of M&M placement. Meanwhile, John entertained Aunt Sandy with giggles.

Picture watching

John likes to stand in the chair and point at the various pictures as they scroll by on the electronic frame. He really jumps and points with glee when he spots Mama and/or Daddy.

And the winner is...

David, but only by 5 lbs. John weighs 30 pounds, per Nurse Sylvia.

Another note from school

"John needs to work on taking bites. He tends to put the whole snack in his mouth." Agreed. But does he scream incessantly when snack ends? If not, count your blessings and let this roll.

Sad day for George

Our original Wubbanub, George, retired today. John bit the paci off. Luckily, we still have the doll. Unluckily, John's down to his last paci and his mama isn't going to buy him another one. Better be careful, John!

Thanks, MA and Jimmy!

We love Halloween treats!

Silly Granddaddy

Only he could make a coloring book sound so interesting.

Columbus Day adventure

John shows that his big brother is not the only hill-riding daredevil in the family.

Family Photos

Last weekend we drove to Brandon for family photos. The boys were less than cooperative, but not awful. Here's a typical photo—not looking at the camera, not looking at each other.

Thanks, Gram and Big Daddy

We love our Halloween treats. We wore our glasses at night inside, we'll use our plates at breakfast, and read our new book tomorrow afternoon. We heard rumors about candy, but we think Mama hid it from us tonight. Too much excitement already!

Pumpkin Patch at St. Peter's

Admittedly, not in focus. But how could I delete a photo with that expression of pumpkin delight?

Flowers from the boys

So pretty! Thoughtful guys...

Why don't we all just shut down?

The government is shutting down, and Team Mitchell is, too (kinda). With the SFA symposium this weekend, and all the unexpected childcare juggling that has landed on us since complications with Ned's work schedule and the shutdown, we'll likely not have much time to photograph the kiddos. Apologies. Back to our normal schedule on Monday (but we may slip in a few pics as time allows).

Happy birthday, Gram!

We're celebrating long distance with popsicles!
