So this blog has nothing to do with me and Sam. This is just a cute kid I wanted everyone to meet! This is Mitchell. I know you might think he is the kid from Home Alone. I know his name, but I don't know how to spell it, so the kid from Home Alone will do! Anyways...do not be fooled..this is Mitchell. He is one of those kids that can do something wrong and you have to keep yourself from laughing because he will make you laugh when you have to get on to him! Well one day he was sick and just wanted to be held. He came and got up in my lap and I was trying to get his mind off of not feeling good so I showed him the Home Alone face. He did it once or twice..got a few laughs out of it..and then remembered that he wasn't feeling good. He really wasn't too. His fever was 102.5! When he came back to school the next week, he remembered what I showed him and starting doing it for everyone! He is soo cute! I just thought that everyone should see the cuteness of this kid and share my Mitchell story!
In thinking back on 2008, it was a year of extreme highs and extreme lows with a little middle ground mixed in. I remember back in January of 2008, we were in the hospital waiting the arrival of the cutest little girl and Mr. Sam said that this year was going to be an exciting year of firsts and lasts. He was getting his first grandchild, his first (and only might I add!) daughter in law, his last child was graduating college, but never did anyone see why 2008 would also be remembered how it will be. I thank God that He gave us the memories of this year to remember forever, even if it is hard to do!! With all this said, this past year will always be remembered in the Shrewsbury household and never forgotten, but we are striving for a much better year! Sam and I are excited for the opportunities that are waiting for us in 2009! We would like to thank all of you who have been praying for us through the past year and the holiday season! It is the power of prayer that has been keeping our family going strong! So to end this blog, we wish you all a very happy new year and good luck with those resolutions!! (especially those who are going with the weight loss resolution!! Sam and I are in your boat! February 1st weight loss is on!!)
