Last weekend we celebrated three family birthdays at my Mom and Dad's house. Pictured above are my brother, Scott; my son, Mitchell; and me.

TODAY is Mitchell's actual birthday. Scott's was on the 14th of September and mine was August 26th. Since they are all so close together, we decided to celebrate the birthdays in triplicate. It was a fun day and I was totally spoiled by my family members.

Not that I wanted to mention my even-numbered birthday again, but I wanted to acknowledge Mitchell today and wish him a great day. He turned 9 years old today and before he went to sleep tonight he told me this was his best birthday ever. I'm not sure why . . . but I'm happy he's happy. I tried to make his day special. I made him French toast for breakfast; I baked chocolate cupcakes and decorated them like dominoes for him to share with his classmates today; I sent him a special birthday note in his lunch kit; He got one more gift; He spent the entire afternoon after school working in his dad's machine shop, building a ramp for his bike and/or quad; I made him all of his favorites for supper--meatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce, garlic toast and coleslaw. We didn't even have dessert because he was so full. And before stories and family devotions, he and I had a riveting game of Payday.

Mitchell, I love you so much and I could not imagine my life without the blessing of you!

Happy Birthday, Mitchell! I am glad to hear you had such a great day! And by the way, Kim, you look great! Love you all! Daphne

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Mitchell!! You are quite a handsome young man. And I am sure your momma agrees with me!

BTW, I love your brother's t-shirt! Indiana University is not very far from me. Did he go there? Or is he just a fan or something?

Just being nosey, is all!

sorry to post this on Mitch's post, but which sig. did you use? I tried one, but it used the white background and doesn't look right... can ya walk me through what you did?

Amy: My brother's t-shirt came from a recent visit he had to Indiana. His wife's sister and her husband live in Indiana, so that's where he got it from.

Chris: I left a comment on your blog about the signature issue.

Oh yeah! Scotty D's b-day! Sounds like lots of fun! Happy Birthday again Kim! And Happy Birthday to Mitchell too!

Kimmy, McD's sweet tea is probably the same thing as your tea, it's just that McD's makes it the best tasting around the US! I like tea and drink it, but I would usually order something else to drink until one day I had McD's sweet tea. I actually crave it!

Yes, it is something I can make at home, but I just can't get it the same way.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
