Last year, I remember that the day after Christmas we all got off to a slow start in the morning.  The kids were playing with their new toys, and I was checking email and eating a bowl of cereal.  Around 10:30 that morning it hit me… it was Reese’s birthday!

This year we remembered it right away and started the day off with presents for the birthday girl.  I can’t believe that she’s already SEVEN!!!  So crazy.
