Generation Reese Episode 33- The silver lining…

Screenshot-2848

 Mom and dad moved out in the middle of the night. They found a nice house just up the road. Morgan still lives in our childhood house. He refuses to leave. No worries because the house is completely paid for and our parents still pay the bills. He is so spoiled, I swear. Lindsey was extremely upset after Tarik left. She tried her hardest to reconcile to no avail. Eventually little Ivy will meet her father. Until, that day it is his loss. Mikaela moved back in with us a day or so before my birthday. She and Merle were having marital problems. It was so bad that Little Clary began to stress eat.  I’m no sure what was going on with Merle. Either way it was good to have everyone together again.

Lindsey threw me an amazing birthday party. It was a big surprise. I didn’t want to really celebrate especially after what happened with Tarik and Lindsey. However, she refused to let the day pass without putting something together. She has a knack for it.

Now that I am older, I can see my mother more and more in my face. Dad’s genes are ever-present, but Mom’s genes are stronger. Even Morgan looks like her which is awesome. All of the grandchildren resemble her as well. Lindsey said, ” You know what’s crazy, Wed. Even our descendants look like mom down to her dark hair and skin.” Mom is getting older now and I know that she is not going to live forever.

My nieces Clary and Mandy finally met. They seemed to hit it off instantly. I believe that all of the grandchildren are going to be as close as my sibs and I are. Family is so important to mom especially after her parents died. She decided to raise all of us first generation Reese’s to love one another. We rarely fight unless its over food. Even then it is not that’s serious.

Just seeing us all together is wonderful. Now that we are all older and for the most part successful. We are the first generation of the Reese family from Sunset Valley. The second generation is growing rapidly. I wonder that they will accomplish.

Merle drank a little too much juice and staggered over to the jelly bean plant by the door. I guess the jelly beans look so good that he had to try them. Mom warned us to stay away from this plant but, I guess that slipped his mind.

He caught on fire a few minutes later. All that was left was a pile of ash on the ground.

Screenshot-2864

Sadly Clary witnessed the entire thing. She stood crying her eyes out in the living room.

Screenshot-2865

Dad started to cry as well when he saw Clary crying.

Screenshot-2866

Morgan sobbed as well.

Screenshot-2867Screenshot-2868

Death appeared which made everyone cry even more.

Merle did not look upset or scared when he faced death.

He just followed him with a smile on his face.

That was Merle for you.

Screenshot-2871

We stood in silence in complete shock.

Screenshot-2873

There was nothing that dad could say to us so he did not say anything. We all just hugged one another and the party ended.

Screenshot-2875

Ivy learned how to walk that night. Lindsey held her close and cried. Sadly, Merle was not present.

He would have started dancing then walked into the room and tickled little Ivy.

Little Ivy will never know her awesome Uncle Merle.

Screenshot-2876

I decided that I needed a change. So….this is what I came up with. It’s the best way for me to cope.

Screenshot-2877

I miss Merle so much. He made sure to come see me even though we barely saw one another.

Screenshot-2879

I put on my cap and gown choking back tears.

Screenshot-2880

We all rode in my car to city hall for the graduation ceremony.

Screenshot-2882

I’m glad that it was a dreary day and not sunny.

Screenshot-2883

It was easier for all of us to cope.

Screenshot-2884 Screenshot-2885

. Screenshot-2886

We took the time to take a family picture. Two generations together is truly a blessing.

Screenshot-2887 Screenshot-2888

Lindsey made Clary her favorite Vegetarian Dim Sum when we came home.

She wanted to cheer her up.

It worked.

Screenshot-2889

Meanwhile, Mikaela played with Ivy who was having a good time.

They both bonded together now that Mikaela is unemployed.

Screenshot-2890

Clary glanced outside and saw a lady walking towards our door carrying a basket.

Screenshot-2891

She rang the doorbell requesting to speak to Mikaela. Little did we know that Mikaela had gone to the adoption agency. She wanted to extend her family further, but every pregnancy test that she took revealed a negative result. Merle was against adoption even though he was adopted into our family.

Screenshot-2892

Mikaela crouched down to pick up the boy. It was little boy. So, she named him Jase.

Screenshot-2893

Jase fell right into the family so quickly once he came inside. He bonded with Ivy instantly.

Screenshot-2895

Ivy saw Mikaela and abandoned her blocks to go to see. These two are seriously inseparable.

Screenshot-2896

This is a close up of little Jase. He is such a sweetie pie and a charmer.

Screenshot-2898

The best part is that Clary has fallen in love with her baby brother.

Screenshot-2899

Mikaela worried about her reaction to Jase since she had been an only child for so long.

Yet, she hugged him immediately.

Screenshot-2900

I think that they are going to be so close just like Mikaela was with Randi, Mike and Merle.

Anyways,

I am doing a lot better so I will keep you posted.

Later,

Wednesday

Generation Reese 2 Episode 23: Another level

 

Screenshot-1103It feels strange writing this blog post since Mike usually does it.

I am not one to air my feelings in any way online.

Mikaela made me sign up for a Facebook page.

If it was up to me, I would still live a life of solitude offline.

Anyways,

Hello readers…

Mikaela Reese here.

Welcome to Generation Reese season 2, episode 23.

I was created as a clone of my mother Michelle Reese.

We lived in a two-story house on the east side of Sunset Valley.

All my life she never made me feel like a freak or a mistake in any way.

Yet, I knew that I was different.

I am sure you all heard the stories …

mom divorced Anoki because of me.

What you don’t know was that the relationship went sour right after they were married.

The best thing that came out of that union was Mike hands down.

This family has always been a hodgepodge of brainy misfits which is why we are all so successful.

I credit that to Leighton and mom.

It was fate that brought Mikaela to me considering who much I missed being home.
She came waddling toward me , glowing like a lightning bug.

The idea of being an aunt blew my mind but, I was not prepared for her to ask me to move in.

She was living with Lindsey, Merle and Mike.

I agreed instantly, after attending every family get together ,it was a no brainer.

Screenshot-1101

Plus, now I could totally rag on Merle.

The idea of him as a husband was crazy but, as a father….insane.

Mike is married , a college graduate and working in the same building as Mikaela.

Crazy

Screenshot-1102

Lindsey is going off to college soon.

I am so proud of the little monster.

Screenshot-1104

Being at home, staring at myself in the mirror I decided it was time to ditch the shocking pink tips.

I dyed my hair chestnut-brown and changed up my style.

In doing so, I met a guy named Gage Briody.

Screenshot-1109

Our first date was nice.

Screenshot-1110

It was seriously love at first sight.

I see how mom married Leighton.

Screenshot-1111

Being a loner, I never tried to fall in love.

However, Gage definitely changed me.

Screenshot-1112

Screenshot-1113

Screenshot-1114

Little Clary is such an amazing baby.

She looks so much like Miranda that it is crazy.

Screenshot-1115

Miranda is loving her new role as a mommy.

Screenshot-1116

Merle and Lindsey exercise together sometimes.

It feels like old times being at home doing homework, eating Ceviche and Vegetarian chili.

Screenshot-1117 Screenshot-1118

Lindsey’s powers grow stronger every day.

She is a natural because of Leighton who was a witch before, he became a fairy.

Mike moved out a day or so after marrying a girl named Kerry Crespo.

She is sweet but, has her qualms about the Supernatural.

Screenshot-1119 Screenshot-1120

Mikaela brought Clary over so that Wednesday could meet her.

Screenshot-1121

Wednesday ended up coming over to pay us a visit.

Screenshot-1122

Lindsey chatted with Wednesday for a bit.

Screenshot-1123

Three Reese girls under the same roof.

I was out on my date when she came over.

Screenshot-1124

They ate goopy carbonara.

Screenshot-1125

Mike threw a housewarming party and invited Mikaela.

Screenshot-1126

Lindsey decided to create a potion or two.

Screenshot-1127

Merle tutored Thornton Wolfe in Logic.

Screenshot-1128

I was cleaning the garden when I noticed something rather peculiar.

My Step brother Sam was trying to holler at grandma Yumi.

It was way too weird even for me.

Screenshot-1129

Lindsey went home to spend some time with mom and dad.

Screenshot-1130

Morgan was out wandering the streets of Sunset Valley.

Screenshot-1131

I met up with Gage that night.

We brought our relationship to a new level.

I became his girlfriend that night.

Screenshot-1132

Everything between us was going so well.

Screenshot-1133

Our date concluded outside of the diner.

Screenshot-1134

We watched the star together meanwhile Preston came out to watch as well.

Screenshot-1135 Screenshot-1136

 That night we decided to take our relationship even further…

and I said yes…

Miranda, out

Generation Reese episode 18: The Wedding

Screenshot-729

Hey everyone, Mike Reese here.

I bought a dragon egg for the family since we don’t have any pets.

Mom spent some time talking to it.

Screenshot-732

But, Lindsey immediately bonded with the little monster.

Screenshot-730

Meanwhile, Merle went to Wednesday’s room to truly introduce himself to her now that she is older.

Screenshot-737

Lindsey finally learned after a half dozen times how to conjure up an apple.

Screenshot-743

Little did she realize that while practice magic her egg was hatching.

Screenshot-745

Suddenly, out popped a little green dragon named Daenerys, after Daernerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

Screenshot-758

Everyone sat down for an early morning breakfast before the wedding.

Sadly none of the kids could attend the wedding on account of school.

Screenshot-760

Mikaela was a blushing bride, not even a tiny bit nervous.

Screenshot-761

I was the first person dressed for the ceremony but, the last to leave the house.

Screenshot-762

Everyone arrived on time which was awesome.

Screenshot-763

Merle and Mikaela are so in love and I am very happy for them.

Screenshot-766

My dad showed up ( as always) in his best suit.

Mom was happy that he came.

Leighton had to go to work which was a bummer.

Screenshot-773

You may now kiss the bride.

Screenshot-774

Everyone stood up and clapped accept for the dude with the red wings.

Screenshot-776

Grandma arrived late but, at least she arrived which was all good.

Screenshot-781

Mikaela cut the cake and took a slice for herself.

Screenshot-782

She ate it alone at the table.

Screenshot-783

Merle sat down with grandma whose table manners are less than desirable.

Screenshot-784

Lori showed up for her slice of cake.

Screenshot-785

The dude with the red wings is so late with his applause. Poor guy.

Screenshot-786

Mom sat down to eat with Parker and Lori.
