It's been way busy for the Allen's the last little bit I feel like I haven't done this much for months! We've had a house warming party, I helped with a halloween party, help my brother move,family pictures, a trip to Woodward, helping my Sis with some wedding stuff, a trip to Braggs to see my grandparents! I'm tired thinking of it all. I don't see it slowing down until after the first of the year either!

But for the most part it's all been with family and I love being around people I love. :)

Halloween is almost over and it's the first year in about 15 I didn't make it to any haunted houses or do anything really festive. We didn't even carve pumpkins! The holidays are just tough sometimes, even after almost two years. I just hope by next Halloween we will have a little trick or treater to tote around! :)

Anniversary weekend!

I LOVE fall and one of my favorite things to do is go to the pumpkin patch. We normally don't go this early in the season but since we had the opportunity so we took and I'm so glad we did b/c we got really good pumpkins :)

This is Shane's battle wound for digging for the perfect one. What kind of day would it be if Shane didn't get hurt right?!? :D

Shane with his ginormous pumpkin that thing weighed in at 30 lbs!

Shane digging for me just the right one!

He's thrilled to have his picture made!

This is my perfect pumpkin! I can't wait to carve these puppies up! (ok may I can't wait for Shane to carve them!)

After the pumpkin patch we head to the Tulsa State Fair. We got there about 4 and walked around til almost 11 my feet were not happy with me by the end of the day!

We found out that my cousins were also at the fair and met up with them. This is my cousin Madison showing more than half the guys in front of her up, she did 9 pull ups the hard way, she's only 6! We are all so proud of her! She just got up there and went to town:)

We were also surprised that American Idol alum Katherine Mcphee was there. So set down and rested for a few and watched her free concert!

Me and my Love at the concert.
I had the best weekend! It was so nice just to spend the day with my honey!

On Monday I went to Strothers to watch our cousin Trystan play Basketball. I love watching this sport so I was really excited when Lacy called to invite me to the game. They lost but they were so cute at losing :)

Trystan is number 22! He told us he doesn't want us to yell for him at his next game! Ha!

5 years a day late.

Yesterday I was married to my hunky husband Shane for five years! Sometimes it feels like we have been together forever and other times I can't believe it's been 5 years. It's amazing how life can change in such a short amount of time. Our family still doesn't look like we were hoping it would when we said "I do", but it looks exactly how God knew it would and we just have to trust that he has plan for us. I have learned a lot as a wife, and we have both done A LOT of growing up. I'm trying to be less selfish and giving. but over all I think we've grown into each other nicely. :) Marriage definitely looks a lot different then I thought it would on Oct. 1, 2005. I won't say I love every minute of it but I at least like it. :) the last five years I have dealt with the hardest things in my life. I'm so thankful that I have Shane right beside me, loving me and being the voice of reason to all my crazy! I love you babe and here's to many more years, With a lot more laughter and A LOT less tears! Oh yea and you staying away from the stupid brush pile!!!!
