Happy 40th, Mitch!

Standard

My husband just celebrated his 40th birthday! For a party of sorts, we gathered at a local pub and ate dinner with sweet friends from church….because being surrounded by friends is right where Mitch wants to be.

Eating at The Cannon Brew & Pub is a delight!

We had a private section upstairs for our noisy bunch. It was so much fun watching everyone mingle, swap seats, laugh, and share food.

Mitch shows off his birthday present from me – a pair of brown Sketchers that HE picked out.

We were visited by a ballerina….she even had her shoes with her. Seriously, Allison was hurting after this attempt at stretching.

Kristen steals a quick kiss from Brandon’s cheek. Sitting across from these newlyweds was hilarious. They always make us laugh. Go Kansas!

Ummmm…..half of a photo fail, thanks to the pastor. “Hey Ira and Liz! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

Well, if you knew this couple, you’d automatically know why this picture is blurry. They are a barrel of true laughter, often unable to contain themselves – like tonight, for example.

Jennie explains trigonometry and calculus to her peeps. HA! Just kiddin’….she’s just telling them about something she just finished sewing. I need to take lessons from her!

Ryan and Beth….getting married in 2 months!

They told us soon after this picture was taken that they were going to eat fast and then head home to watch The Social Network.…nerds. Love ya, Robin and Philip!

Chrissy and Chad just found out they are having a baby boy! They are ecstatic! The ultrasound pictures were passed around as Chad kept grinning from ear to ear. It’s about time we have some more boys in our church. The girls have them far outnumbered!


Mitch, I could write sooooooo much here but know that I love you deeply. So glad God gave us each other….I’d rather be with you than be with anyone else in the world. Some of my favorite moments with you are the times when we are alone in the car listening to Keller, Chandler, or Driscoll preach. Our words are rich as we talk about how God is weaving the gospel in our lives – in our marriage, our parenting, and friendships. Thank you for leading me, loving me, and pushing me to Christ. You are an amazing father whom our kids adore. Babe, I find joy in serving and helping you. May God give you another rich 40 years, plus more.

….because that’s how we roll.

  1. How beautiful! What fun you guys must have had! ๐Ÿ™‚ We are searching again for a church home. The new one we are trying has a pastor and his wife who are from…wait for it…ALABAMA!

    Jeff and Felicia have been in Platteville for 11 years but it is fun hearing their accents and knowing some of the same places from down South. Not quite the same, but they are reformed and teach from the Bible (miracles!).

    They actually make me miss you guys terribly… ๐Ÿ™‚
