Ok, so my wonderful mother came to stay with me for 3 weeks after Reese was born. It was wonderful to have her here. I didn't realize just how wonderful it was until today. Today was the first day I attempted to go to Wal-mart by myself with all 3 kids. I have been out a few times, but I have always had someone with me. I took the kids to get there pictures done. I wanted pictures of the 3 of them together while Reese is still little. HOLY MAC!!! First, I left the house in PLENTY of time to get there on time and still feed Reese before we went in (so she would be happy). When I got to Show Low the roads were down to one lane. This took me 10 extra minutes. Therefore when I finally got there I didn't have time to feed Reese. So we hurry in and get the baby changed. When the kids are posing the baby starts freaking out. Then Riley and Raegan are so worried about the baby freaking that they will not hold still. They both start being silly and making weird faces. I was going crazy. The poor girl finally got a few pictures that were ok. But, I learned that I will not be taking the kids out by myself for a long, long time.

Raegan turned 3 years old on Saturday May 10th. We had a princess party for her with family and some of her friends. When Russ asked her what she wanted for her birthday dinner she said she wanted ribs and soda. How funny. Only the offspring of Russ Sipes would say they wanted ribs and soda for their birthday food of choice:) We got her (and Riley) a swing set play thing for the back yard. They love, love, love it. It is really nice to have-they can just go outside and play all day if they want. Russ was pretty proud that he put it together for her (with the help of Melinda and the girls). The box said it can be put together in 2 hours it only took them 6!!! They finished at 3 in the morning. He must love his princess alot. We had alot of fun. I can't believe she is 3 already. She is such a cutie. Everyday she does something funny. She tells us all she loves us at least 50 times a day. What 3 year old does that???? We are so blessed to have such wonderful kids.
We had a lot of fun at Raegan's party. You can see how happy see is. We played pin the tail on the donkey. She thought that was funny. Then we did a princess pinata. LOVED all the candy that came out. Like any of the kids needed any more sugar:) Her favorite thing we did was decorate princess crowns (and prince crowns for the boys). We cut them out of poster board and they got to decorate with glitter glue and beads. They all had a great time making a mess.

Here are some way cute pictures of Reesie smiling. After 1000 pictures we got lucky and caught a smile. Her proud big brother holding her. He loves her and always wants to hold her and kiss her. Reese is getting big. She weighs over 10 pounds now and is 3 weeks old. It has gone really fast already.
