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!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Last Thursday, Reid turned 4 wks old, and we got to go see Santa Claus. Both Allen and I were anticipating a crying fit from Hayleigh, not wanting to meet Santa, or having anything to do with him, and coming home with some okay pictures of her half bawling on his lap.  

We were wrong!

Hayleigh LOVED Santa- or "Ho Ho", as she calls him. We started with Reid's pictures with Santa, sleeping. He did alright- fought sleep of course. We took a break, for me to top Reid off, and Santa came in to meet Hayleigh. She played with legos with Santa, and Santa gave both Allen and I big hugs, and went on about how much we had grown. When it was time to start back up on pictures, Hayleigh held Santa's hand, and walked right back into the room to get pictures taken. She smiled, laughed, and yacked Santa's ear off. How was she my child? She was soo sweet, and precious- leaving her hair alone for once. She did what we asked her to do on posing, and was happy about it all. We went in planning on only getting a few pictures, but left with one of each kid that were just perfect, and 2 of both of them with Santa. We even got one of Hayleigh giving Santa a big hug. Picking out the pictures, and narrowing them down, was a lot more harder than I had anticipated.  The picture above is a preview of one of the pictures of both of the kids with Santa that we ordered. I get to pick them up this week, and I am beyond excited!!
