Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We had a good one. We went camping with my family (a Wortley tradition) at Lake Sommerville. Daniel only stayed one night due to his work schedule, but Reece and I stayed from Wednesday to Saturday. We ate a lot of yummy food, hung out with the family and went on walks. Reece practiced her walking in the dirt and leaves. It was SO cold outside, so we got to wear all our warm clothes (which we don't have a lot of!)

The sleeping situation was quite a challenge. Reece and I slept in the same bed together. I never knew how much she tossed and turned!! It was fun to cuddle all night for a couple of days, but I'm very glad she is back in her crib tonight! Here are some fun pictures!

Reece practicing her walking.

Uncle Michael reading me my favorite book.

As soon as we decided to take this picture, Reece started crying. It would have been a great picture if Reece wasn't crying! Although, it shows the other side of the campout...Reece's sleep deprivation!!

Listening to Grandad's music! Fun! Notice the socks on the hands. We didn't bring any mittens!

Happy First Birthday, Reece!!

Reece's first birthday was on November 12. She had a great party 2 days before her real birthday. We had a lot of friends and family there to celebrate with her. Thanks so much for coming!! Reece was a little overwhelmed at first, but she warmed up to everyone. She liked eating her chocolate cake and playing with all her new, fun toys. On her real birthday, we got our family pictures taken and opened a few more presents from Mom and Dad. Her favorite presents were her "touch and feel" books and her doll that she likes to kiss. She started walking really well in the evening of her real birthday!

Happy Birthday Reece! We love you SOOOO much!!

To those of you who check this blog, I need your help!! (and I know there are at least a few of you, so speak up!)

We recently got our family pictures done (actually on Reece's first birthday) and I'm having trouble picking out the last two pictures that come in the package we're getting.

So, go to this website:
password: becky
What do you like better for a 5x7? 6, 36, or 27
What do you like better for a 11x14? 5 or 21
If you like something better, you can tell me, but I may already be getting it in a different size.
Thanks SO much!!

By the way, I really like the lady who did these pictures. Her website is She's a Christian and works a lot with children. The park we went to was beautiful!! She's all the way in Leauge City, and a little pricey, but great if you want to splurge (or get it for you Christmas present like me :)

Reece's first birthday pictures to come!!
