He's Engaged!

Here is the next Mr. & Mrs. Riese... officially in May 2008!

Baby Phil (as Mike and his brother Brian call him) is officially engaged!
Last Saturday, Phil proposed to Miracle at Camp BaYouCa (where they met-just like Mike and me) and she happily said "Yes!"
This is a big year for Mom & Dad Riese as they have many milestones to cherish; Grandma Parker's homegoing (Feb.),Phil's College graduation (May), first grandchild-Parker(Aug), Brian's wedding (October), and Phil's engagement (November)! This will be a very memorable year for all of us Riese's!
The Lord has really blessed us all this year. It is a true blessing for me to be a part of such a wonderful in-law family! I feel very blessed.
Phil and Miracle, may God bless you two in your future marriage!
Mike, Jenn & Parker

Training for the 4th of July

I have a new goal that I am aiming to reach on the 4th of July;
Mike and I are planning to run "The Peachtree" Race in downtown Atlanta on the 4th of July! It is 5 mile race! I am running on the treadmill 3-4 times a week and do 1 & 1/2 miles in 20 minutes! So hopefully, come early spring I will be close to the goal! I have never run a race before, and really look forward to it! We will be joining our good friends Samantha and Kendall! I know Samantha is looking forward to running it for the 3rd year in a row! Also, she will have just had their first baby 2 months it is her goal to be in it following birth! Being a "stay at home mom", I am now able to do some things for myself now that I never did when I was teaching! The most challenging part about training is just trying to figure out how long Parker will actually sleep and getting the running in~ I will keep you posted on this goal. We have to sign up for the race immediately when it comes out in the paper because so many people apply each year! If you don't do it right away, you won't get a number! Fingers crossed and aiming high!
Parker's update:
He is 12 weeks old!

Here is a picture I love...Abbey protecting Parker while he was taking a little nap on Sunday afternoon! Abbey has really accepted Parker, but she is still trying to figure out what great "food" item is caught in his mouth at times! (Translated, she found a pacifier on the floor one night, and she brought it up to Mike! We were laughing so hard! She really wanted to know what to do with it!)

Blessings to you all,
