Consistently Late

Well, here we are again and I can't seem to get posts up in a timely fashion. Well, I guess I should give you a little bit of an update. We had Jade's first Birthday party on Feb 16, 2008. Of course, she got too many toys.  It took a little while for her to figure out that the cake was for her to eat.

We have had a great few weeks. Well, check out the link to see some pics from the party:  Click Here

Well, until next time.

Just a quick word

Hey everyone. It is hard to believe that we are about to celebrate Jade's First Birthday. Jade is doing well. She is about 25 lbs. The doctor still is amazed at her growth. She has consistently been in the 93rd percentile for growth.

Melanie is doing well. She really enjoys being home and caring for the house and family.

I am really enjoying work. There are constantly new challenges to handle and interesting things to accomplish.

Til next time.

Happy New Year

We trust that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. We had an exciting time with family and friends. Of course, Jade was the highlight of everyone's Christmas around here.

Christmas Festivities

Hope all is well with everyone. I am sorry about the tiny pics on the last post. I am experimenting with changing the size so they upload faster. Bear with me while I tweak them a little. 

Here are some fun pics of Jade getting in the holiday spirit (or is it mom forcing the holiday spirit) haha!

Every year Mamaw Elkins' family gets together to decorate the family Christmas Tree. This year Jade got in on the activity here she is observing the process. 

More festivities at Mamaw E's. This is Chad's Aunt Rhonda, and his cousin Tahnee assisting Jade with her reindeer antlers.

Our little blessing. Jade is a source of great joy to us daily. We are so grateful to God for entrusting us with her life. 

This is Grammy and Jade at the Crown College Christmas open house.

Ho ho ho, and bye bye for now!

Yes we are still alive!!

Hello all, yes believe it or not the Mitchells are posting!! So sorry it has been forever what can I say it has been crazy. Chad has a new position at work which keeps him very busy, but he is loving it! Of course like all mothers I work 24/7 ha ha. I have also been working with my business as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. So as you can see we keep busy, and are on the go a lot.

In October Jade and I went to spend some time with my sister Sarah and her two little ones. Everett was 2 in June, and Alivia is just now 3 months old. Jade is 8 months in this picture of the three cousins posing rather haphazardly for a picture.
My mother and grandmother came out to Sarah's for a day or so. Here is a 4 generation picture.
Here is a more recent picture of Jade. Snack before Thanksgiving dinner at Papaw Mitchell's house. 

Jade is doing well. She will be 10 months on the 16th of this month, and is keeping me hopping. I will post more later.

Sorry its been so long

Well, once again it has been a while since we have posted anything. Unfortunately, I am just placing a quick post and will have to try and put some pictures up tomorrow.

It has been an extremely busy month for Melanie, Jade and myself. The first full week of August I was able to take some vacation time and we had a great week as a family. Mostly we got some much needed rest. We did make a short trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed the drive.

Well, I hope that this quick post finds you and your families well. I look forward to posting again soon.
