About Me

My husband, Allen, and I are high school sweet hearts. We started dating Sep.99'- I kind of followed Allen home one day, and never did leave, is Allen's story. November 02' we were engaged, and on November 22,2003 - we were married. Having been married for 6 years in 2009, marked the 5th year we had been trying to start our family. With the referral of a Fertility Specialist from a friend, our IUI attempts ended up being a complete success despite my doubts. We welcomed our sweet little girl, Hayleigh into the world on June 30,2010 at 6:28am after 37wks and 1 day of gestation. She weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 in long. We found out that we were Baby #2 on April Fool's Day- a complete surprise! Reid Allen was born 11/13/12 3:24am 9lbs 8.2oz 21", after 38wks 5 days. Our 3rd baby, Eva Jane, was born on April 19, 2015 after suffering a pregnancy loss June of 2014. We are currently anxiously awaiting baby #4 due 2 days before Eva's birthday, so we are having Irish Twins! Our family is so blessed and happy to be growing!

Catch up..Our first Thanksgiving here,and 9 year anniversary

Okay, now that we have gotten in a somewhat routine around here, I'm back on! So, still playing catch up...
We had a nice Thanksgiving, and celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary all on the same day- just how Thanksgiving fell this year- right smack on our anniversary. I think that having Thanksgiving fall on our anniversary this year, just made everything so much more special~ Reid's first Thanksgiving, our first Thanksgiving in Colorado, and as a family of four, and our first Thanksgiving without our families- except we were lucky to have Allen's mom here to share it with. Lots of firsts!

Hayleigh was a sweetie all day. We started out making beds, and getting cleaned up. Hayleigh decided she wanted to hold her "broder". The rest of the day we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade- a tradition for us, and we took lots and lots of pictures, besides cooking a smaller Thanksgiving dinner.

Reid's 1st Thanksgiving

So, we had a great dinner, and Allen's mom packed her stuff to leave out the next day. Allen ended up taking her up to the airport so we wouldn't have to get everyone out. 

The next night, we ended up going to Best Buy and Murdochs for sale items. Allen got his Christmas from me and the kids early...imagine that. We got him an Ipad. He absolutely loves it, and has the photos I take automatically shared to it. He says it is a lot more convenient to take with him to work- lot less bulky than a laptop, and doesn't even want a laptop now- so he says. I ended up feeding Reid in the parking lot at Best Buy- I think it was the 2nd time I've fed him in the excursion in a parking lot now. We got home later, and decided to rest for the night. 

Saturday, we went back to Murdochs to exchange jeans from the night before, and had McD's for lunch. We ended up going back to Best Buy again- Allen had to try to get the receipt that we found was missing when we got home from the night before- the system was down, so I had to call it in later on. We made it back home to cook supper, and to move bedroom suites around. Reid was getting Hayleigh's dresser, and we had to finish decorating it. We moved the dresser in like 1 minute, and I let Allen go with the decorating.

We spent the rest of our night cuddling, and Allen played one of his games. We ended up going to bed early, since Allen had to leave out early the next morning for work.  I'll save Sunday on for the next post- me flying solo with a newborn and 2 year old....God Help Me~
