Happy 15th Birthday, Mitchell!!!

Our teenagers keep getting older!! :) And time keeps flying. Just yesterday Elizabeth and I were watching a video of Mitchell when he was little........and I was amazed again at the changes that happen so quickly! Overnight, it often seems, little boys grow into young men. Although I'm the oldest, Mitchell has often seemed to me like the big brother I never had. For my siblings and I, he's the one we go to with all our math and science questions (he still has me beat with algebra!). He's the kind-hearted, generous, and caring big brother who is always willing to listen about the little one's latest adventures, his brothers latest projects, and his sister's most recent "problems"....
He's never too busy to talk with someone who just needs to talk (with 2 teenage sisters it happens a lot) or to enjoy a good laugh about the most interesting things.....right Mitchell??) We as siblings have many special memories of camping trips, traveling in a van with 11 people, playing "I Doubt It", "Dutch Blitz", "Monopoly", & "Risk", having a "chocolate milk shake party", jamming together, howling with laughter while listening to Mitchell use his "Hudson" accent, and just being together.
Watching him grow into a young man of God has been so exciting.
We love you, Mitchell!!May God bless you in your 15th year!!
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
Psalm 1:1-3

  2. Mitchell -
    Hope you have a very happy day - you might be good at dutch blitz, monopoly and i doubt it (i do doubt that!) but why is checkers not on the list??? Has that ceased to be an easily won game for you?! Chris has been practicing a lot lately... thought you should know.
    Hope to see you all before the year's out! ;) maybe chels can book us one weekend?! :)
