On Reese's actual birthday, mommy and daddy helped her open gifts from Aunt Diana, Nana and Poppy in Alaska and Great Grandmom Ryan. What we didn't know was that her "minor" cold was quickly turning into pneumonia that day which is the reason you see a shiny, runny nose in these pictures. Poor baby! It's been a solid two weeks of sickness between Reese and I that we are praying will end here shortly when her antibiotics are finished this Thursday. She's slowly becoming more of herself and her appetite seems to be returning. We're thankful for those answers to prayer!

Then to celebrate the March birthdays (of Matt and Reese) in the Mehringer family all 10 of us got together for some amazing Mexican food, presents, cupcakes and ice cream. We even went a little crazy with the birthday hats!
The big surprise this year involved Matt receiving an ipad for his birthday...we are very excited about this new toy in our home. Thank you to all our family who helped with this present. And a special thanks to Tad and Monika for their part in getting this for Matt!!
