Our Home for the Holidays 2012

Here is our home all decorated for Christmas!

Three more trees & special ornaments from beloved friends.
Our four stockings hung on the chimney with care:)
I might have a slight reindeer obsession. 
Perhaps my favorite decoration is the nativity scene.  It is so special to me & reminds me that Jesus is the reason for the season.
My view walking into the living room from the kitchen.  I absolutely love getting Christmas cards.  It's one of my favorite things about the holidays.

I framed & decorated with our card this year!
I always like to send a little something something with our cards to catch loved ones up on what's going on in our lives.  It wouldn't let me upload the document on our pretty paper, so I typed it out for you to read!
C is for change.  Twenty twelve brought a lot of change in the Allen household!  Annie June was born in October and life with a two year old & new baby is challenging, yet rewarding.  We are so grateful for the chaos & two healthy children.  
H is for Hagan Jude.  He is the best big brother, gets more hair compliments than anyone I know, and his personality & sweet heart brings joy to so many.
R is for Rudy.  He works hard on the oil rigs and at home.  He is a wonderful father &  strengthens me daily.  I really couldn’t imagine life without him.  
I is for I, since there isn’t a J in Christmas:)  We have collectively decided that as long as it’s God’s will & I can keep my sanity, I’m staying at home full-time with the children.  
S is for serving Him.  We hope to do more serving in the year 2013.
T is for time.  Do you ever wonder where it goes?  I want a time machine for Christmas, so I can hit the rewind button occasionally.  No matter how badly we want to slow it down, time marches on.  We are trying to soak up every ounce of time with our precious children and family.
M is for Merry Christmas!  We love each and every one of you...
A is for Anniston June Allen.  She made her arrival on October 9, 2012, weighing in at 7 lbs 3 oz.  If she were any sweeter, sugar would drip right off of her.  She is quite possibly the best cuddler in the entire world.    

S is for Savior.  Remember that Jesus is the reason for this Season!

Feel free to follow the Allen clan at
Have a very Merry Christmas!!!

Now, I must get back to my poor sick children.  Not pictured is saline drops, humidifiers, tylenol, and thermometers all strewn throughout the house.  Blah.
Wishing you happy & healthy holidays!
