Why did I buy a dollar Test!!!!

Ok so I stayed home sick from work on Monday b/c I thought I had a little case of the flu! ne who the week progressed and I was still feeling sick. So I kept putting off buying a pregnancy test because I had bought so many before and they always said no so me of little faith thought it would yet again. God had a differnt plan.

Tish more or less was tired of hearing me whine and rationalize all the reason why or why not to buy one. You know about this girls. anyway Tish said watch the kids and I'll go get one. I informed her to just go to the dollar store so we would only "waste" a dollar instead of fifty! So she goes and comes back I do the test, and at first there was no line. Then to my suprise I went back over to the test and started seeing a faint pink line. So I started jumping and yelling Tish do you see a line or am I crazy and she says yea I see a line. Then we make Scott inspect and he also seen the line. So at this point I'm almost in hysterics. Never had I seen a line on a pregnancy test you can image me jumping and talking a hundred miles a minute. Then it hits me this test was only a dollar it could just be defected! So then we had to wait for Brett and Brenda to get here to get Jarrett so we can go. Me and Tish rush to walmart get one of those digtal test. Tish grabbed the stick from me and neither of us could look. Well of course one of us had too and guess what it said PREGNANT!!!!!!!

That's right folks Ashley Mae Allen is now with child. I can't believe it and everything that God has done in our lives is down right amazing. I'm so thankful to be a child of God who I can go through all the bad stuff with and be so thankful for the good. He is an awesome God who is still in the Miracle business.

Shane is so excited he has called me atleast 5 times today just tell me he heard I was pregnant called people he hadn't talked to for many years to spread the news. So i'm five weeks pregnant the estimated due date is July 5, 2009. I go in to see doc Evans in Stillwater, Ok on Monday. I am absoultly elated. I would like to ask for prayers just to have a great pregnancy and healthy baby boy or girl! Thanks for all the prayers during the process of this all happening I appericate everyone. Thank you Tish, Scott, Brett and Brenda, Bree and Jarrett for sharing in this most precious moment in our lives. We love you and can't wait for you all to start spoiling baby Allen!!!!! I'll post pics of shanes reaction tomorrow! Kass I wish you could have been here but you'll get to spoil your neice or nephew real soon.

One of my favorite holiday festivities!!!!

Tonight for my Cubbie group at church I'm doing this really neat thing with them called the pumpkin Gospel. It a hands on way to teach kids that God cleans our yucky sins out. and transforms us into new creations in Christ. It was also a good excuse to get to carve up some Jack O Lanterns!!!!

Tisha Cutting the top off and Bree intently watching!! P.S. the knife that Bree has is especially for kids. Tish has tried and tried to see if it will cut her and it won't didn't want y'all faithful blog readers to think we would let her play with a knife. Nonny would kill us :)

Bree cutting the top off her size pumpkin she did a really good job!

This is no doubt Bree telling me what to do because we all know she already knows everything!

I had to carve two so I got Nane in on the action!

He takes his carving so seriously! He did have his tongue out before I took this pic :)

p.s I forgot to take finished product pics, I was playing with Tisha new wii fit so I was distracted. ne way I thought I would let everyone know the pictures your enjoying are from my wonderful new IPHONE!!!!

OK so for about a month I have been wanting an iPhone really bad! I was off work on Monday and I talked Tish into wanting one too. We have been on family plan for over a year and it really works best for us and is alot cheaper. ne way now we just had to talk Shane and Scott into it.... a success! so now I have a really awesome phone literally we have not stop playing with them and finding new stuff about them for the last two days. I doubt we'll ever get to do everything it's capable of. So yea I'm excited about phone so what... It's the most exciting in a good way thing that's happened to me all week;) I leave you with a picture of the beauty!!!!!!!

I've been so blessed tonight with the love of people from our church! Most of you know the circumstances. I can't even really find words to say what God is dealing with in my heart. I just want to say thanks for all who have been praying, and those of you who found the time to come out to show your support and give encouragement! O I don't want to forget to mention all the wonderful food! so Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart.

2 Corinthians 2:5-11
5 If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you, to some extent- not to put it too severely. 6 the punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficent for him. 7 now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. 8 I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. 9 the reason I wrote you was to see if you stand the test and be obedient in everything. 10 If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven- if there was anything to forgive - I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, 11 in order thatt Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

Romans 4:7&8
7 "Blessed are they whose transgresions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man whose sin the lord will never count against him"

Remember that Gods Grace is sufficent and it's not for us to judge. I hope that this week God will begin to stir some thanksgiving in our hearts to know that we have a church that is on Gods side and won't let Satan still our joy.

We have been two people down at work and it's been really chaotic. I'm so glad that tomorrow is Friday. Oh, and guess what I have Monday off too. Thank you Columbus for finding America and letting us get a day off in honor of you finding it. Let's all say a quick hip hip hooray for Christopher Columbus! :) I'm headed to Tulsa this weekend for two birthday party's. I'm excited to get to see my family and I'm making my sister take me to the pumpkin patch! Well I hope everyone has a good weekend and I'll try to post pics on Monday... maybe of Shanes Monster Buck!

Wow I can't believe it's been three years already! Three years ago today I married Gregory Shane Allen and love him more and more everyday. Wow marriage has sure been different then what I had picture in my mind, but I have a wonderful helpmate and husband. God knew what he was doing when he put us together, but we already knew that. This last year we been going through some tough stuff but Shane has let me cry and laugh. I love him with all my heart and don't know what I would do without him. So I love you Shane and can't wait to spend the next million years with the love of my life!
