Last night we had Christmas with my Mom and some Pendergrasses! There were a LOT of people there like 23 or so... I think it's a lot of fun to be around all my family just visiting and having a good time! This is Christmas two, I have one tonight, tomorrow and Saturday and Sunday! It's snowing so it looks like we are going to have a white Christmas! this rarely happens so we are excited!!!!

Last weekend we traveled to Woodward for Christmas with the Allens. a weekend is never long enough to spend with your family but we got a lot of family time in! the pics are in order wrong but didn't really feel like fixing them.
This is Bree on the bike we got her! It has a little seat for her baby doll on the back to cute! She was so excited to see it she ran and gave Nane a great big hug... I didn't get one though :( what's up with that?!?!?!
Here is the little cutie in his new cowboy boots we go him. He got two pairs and didn't know which ones he wanted to wear more I think I changed them like 5 times :)

Back at Thanksgiving Shane's Pa got a bulldozer and went to work on our house pad :) These are just some pics of all the dirt it's hard to tell what it's really going to look like but wanted to document it :)
The first pic is actually me Bree and Huck on our way to tree trimming!
Shane and Brett talking about getting it just right and we need to do!
Bree and Brenda waiting on the four wheeler we couldn't keep Bree off of it!
Well the first of ours starts Saturday... I can not believe this year is already gone! We are headed to Woodward to open gifts with the Allens! I'm ready to get away for a couple of days and just hang out with the family. I'm excited to see Bree and Jarrett open their gifts. There's nothing like watching Christmas through children's eyes. They are the youngest ones around this year. My other nephews and niece are all almost teenagers which I can't believe either. All a constant reminder that I'm getting older ha! Thought I would leave you with a Christmas song that I know has been around a long time but for some reason this year I decided I really liked the lyrics:) I will post pics of the first round and next week is way crazy!
Here are a few of the family pictures that we took back in the begining of November I'm so excited to see them edited and they turned out great!!!!! you can go to www.saephotography.net/allenfamily to see the rest of them edited but these are the ones that I can share hope you enjoy I know I did :)

This is way up on the top of my list!
This is my Honey! He's pretty cute!
another one of my husband! I think he's pretty hott!
I usually want to get all the decorations out as soon as Thanksgiving is over. I have told Shane many of times lets go get our Christmas stuff out of storage. It still hasn't happened and honestly I just don't want to. I know the ornament we bought last year that says expectant parents in 2009 will find me. That we will have another year with only two stockings to hang. That I have empty arms while watching Shane set up the tree. It's just not happening for me this year. I have tried to get in the spirit, we are going to look at Christmas lights in Tulsa on Friday and then the Christmas train on Sunday. So maybe that will help. This whole season is so geared towards children and families that it's just hard to be a spectator and not participating. Maybe Christmas 2010 we will have our miracle baby. Sorry the last two post have kinda been downers but stuff. This blog is from my heart and that's what it's like to lose a baby. It's one up and down after the other. I'm looking forward to the New Year and new hope.
On a side note I know that Christmas is not all about presents and the hub bub. I'm thankful for my savior and want to celebrate his birth. Thank you God for letting your son be born and to die on a cross for all of our sins.
