This blog shares the happenings of Chris, Lacey and Reese O'Donnell. We didn't used to have that much to say about ourselves which is why posts were few and far between, but now we have a little person that will give us a lot to talk about. The blog will also feature Lacey's Random Finds - event planning, paper love, pretty crafty things, etc.


Irish Girl

Kiss Me I'm Irish Indeed!!!

Giggle Fit

This is HILARIOUS! I laugh every time I see it. Every time (which is like 100 times)! Not sure what was so funny, but she is almost delirious. Enjoy!

Random Pics from Last Week

Here are a couple of darling pictures I took last week, and then some even cuter and cooler ones Spencer took with his new iphone app.

The Baby Whisperer

There was debate among the boys as to which of them was the (self proclaimed) baby whisperer. Nathan might be it. Reese feel asleep in his arms burying herself in his chest. Too cute. And good work Nathan!

More Cousins

Reese is one lucky girl. She got to spend a whole week with her cousins when the Arizona Youngs came to visit and spent their spring break with us. I thought the boys (teenagers) would think she was cute and all, but I had no idea how much they would LOVE her. They fought all week over who got to hold her and play with her. I am certain she is going through withdrawl, wondering where those boys went. We LOVED having the whole family here!!

Not sure how I didn't get a good pic with Uncle Ryan or Aunt Jenny since we can't talk about loving and spoiling Reese without them too.

With Nathan


While at the Phillies game, a photographer from the Associated Press stopped and asked if he could take Reese's picture. OF COURSE! Not sure it will ever run, but fun just the same. Nice too because he emailed them to us - see below. 9 innings might be 3 innings too long for our girl.

Game Time

Phillies Girl

So I may have gotten carried away. I'll be the first to admit. I love sports. Baseball especially. But I love sports gear even more. And now baby sports gear? Come on!! Reese was fully prepared for Spring Training.

Reese and Squirt

We bought Reese a little stuffy of Squirt from Finding Nemo while in Orlando. She LOVES him as seen here.

Spring Training 2011

As if Utah wasn't enough adventure, Chris and I took Reese to Florida for Spring Training Baseball the following weekend. Chris' Aunt Mary Ann and Uncle Lou live in FL now, so we flew to Orlando and spent the first day and night with them We had a GREAT time hanging out, visiting Downtown Disney and seeing their new place.

Four Generations

Reese has four generations on each side of the family. GG, Grandma Pat, Dad and Reese. Grandpa Great, Grandma Rita, Mama and Reese. We were able to get some photos of each set recently.

Grandpa Great

Reese is very lucky to have her Grandpa Great (that is what we call him instead of great grandpa. I love it because it is so true!) We went to see him at his apartment and visit one morning while in Utah. I am not sure which one was more infatuated. We also got what might be Reese's best picture to date - just so cute of the two of them!

More Random Pics from Utah


Reese has 7 cousins - 3 in AZ and 4 in UT. She got to meet the Utah cousins on our trip, and the AZ cousins are coming to visit us next week! I knew the Obray kids were excited to meet Reese, but they exceeded my expectations. They were SO cute with her and everyone had so much fun.

Uncle Shane called first dibs.
