Mitchell Turns 3!!

Into Everything

Spoiled by his siblings

Such a handsome Little Boy

Brothers and Best Friends

We are so excited to have a BIG 3 year old at our house. Mitch is a handful but we can't imagine our family without him, He's such a fun little guy to have around. He loves tractors and trucks, helping mom cook (he told us he wants to be a Bonsai cooker when he grows up), being outside digging in the dirt and working with his tools on anything -especially the walls which have lots of kicks to prove it. Calling him active would be an understatement, he doesn't stop moving until his head hits the pillow at night.
We love you Mitch!!
Happy 3rd Birthday!

It's GREAT to be 8!!

Here are 8 of my favorite things about Peyton:

1 He's a very good friend. Whenever I volunteer in his class I see first hand how much he's loved by his peers. I can tell they look up to him and admire him. He treats everyone with kindness and is very loyal. He's a leader and he doesn't even realize it!

2 He has worked so hard on his piano this past year and is doing very well because of all the practicing he does. I love that he wants to learn the piano, it's something I regret not doing myself and I admire his dedication.

3 He loved his first season of basketball and gave it his all. He was awarded defender of the week twice and his team was undefeated.

4 He lives in the moment. He really gets into what he's doing, he puts his whole heart into it and soaks it up.

5 Peyton in an excellent student. He's super smart and loves to learn new things.

6 He's an amazing big brother to Ashton, they've become best friends. I love the way they make each other laugh.

7 Peyton knows right from wrong and is usually very good about doing what's right. He sets a quite example for those around him.

8 He has a huge heart and an explosive temper. Luckily we don't see the temper very often.

(I think he secretly switched to a Utah fan after sharing a suite with these guys at a Jazz game! Don't tell his Dad)

Happy Birthday "P"!! You're a great kid and Mom and Dad love you very much. Thanks for being such a fun, bright and passionate member of our family. I know being the oldest is sometimes hard, thanks for being patient with me. You contribute so much and we love being your parents. I hope your 8Th year is one of your best. You have so much to look forward to.

Love Mom
