Welcome to the Adventures of the Reese's Pieces Gang. I am a middle aged busy mom of 6. One precious angel and 5 beastie boys. We are a family who are thankful for Jesus our Savior and all that He has done and will do in our lives.

Life in the Reese home is never dull! This blog will be used to journal the funny, sad, and amazing adventures of daily life and how the Lord is using these events to draw us closer to Himself. I hope you will enjoy reading and participating in our blog through your comments!

Since I am new to blogging and not very good with computers it will take me a while to learn how to post pictures, but I will make it a priority so those of you who are family & friends who live far away will be able to keep updated on the kids.

I'll do another entry later today sharing how Phil and the boys survived a war with the bees earlier today..................

welcome to the blogosphere! hopefully you'll find it a huge source of encouragement in motherhood as I have. your finding time to post in between mothering might be more difficult than for me with one at this point, but it is relaxing!

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! I enjoy reading all your posts even though I haven't posted on them yet, yep you guessed it.... I haven't figured out how to.

I'll do a more detailed post on Caleb but currently the doctor is concerned about his retna so he will see another specialist at Childrens Hospital on Wednesday. His eye is also too soft yet, so we are unsure how soon his next surgery will be.

You are way more up-to-date on computers than I feel :) We really look forward to keeping up with your beautiful young family in such a fun way. You are not middle aged yet; the national average is higher least I hope! Love matter how old...
