The Friday before his birthday, we had a little party in the park and had so much fun! I let Mitch open an early birthday present-a sweet volleyball set so we could use it at the party. The competition was pretty steep all night.

After it got dark, we played night games which brought back so many great memories from growing up. I think I scared a lady who was walking her dog half to death when she came up on me hiding behind the cars. She stopped and looked at me crouched down creeping on the people in the park, then looked back at the people in the park and took a minute and thought about telling them that someone was creeping on them. I tried to look less suspicious and smiled and then I think she realized it was all just a game. Must not be very many night games going on in Houston. Or maybe it's just that it's more common here to see someone creeping around cars than nightgames in the park?
We got lots of fun packages in the mail from Mitch's parents. Just take a look at this excited doctor.
Who asks for a reflex hammer and a tuning fork for their birthday?
As he was opening these, he was like, "sweet now I can do more tests on you Kels!" I thought to myself "oh no please not more tests." I just answered "Yes, I'm so excited about that. That will be wonderful." It's not too bad when he's doing the quick run through, but when he's doing the full out practice exam it can get annoying fast. It's sit up, lie down, turn over, sit down, lift this, lower that, and my favorite...don't let me push your leg down, now don't let me push your leg up. It's like a weight resistant work out! Oh it's the best. I like to be a really annoying patient and answer all his questions wrong. And every time he asks me if something hurts, I say yes. It's the best. Just picture him pounding that reflex hammer on my knee over and over, harder and harder, waiting for my lower leg to kick out. He claimed it was a defective hammer until our friend came over and figured out Mitch was just hitting my knee too high. I love being married to a med student!

I got Mitch just boring old clothes and shoes but the kid needed some new shirts! He would rather do anything in the world than go buy himself new clothes.
I love this 25 year old boy so much! I thought I would never love him more than I did when I married him but I keep finding more and more things I love about him. I am so grateful for all he does for me and the example he is to me. He is so unselfish and loves to serve. Even though he is super busy with school, he always makes sure that he spends time with me first. He is amazing!
