Presley Leah Allen

Presley Leah Allen was born on November 18th at 3:19pm. She weighed 8 pounds 5 1/2 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches tall!

We are so happy to have Presley as an addition to our family. We have had almost a full 24 hours with her and already have a great bond. She is just a happy baby and has taken to nursing really well. She has been eating like a hoss, but has decided in the past few hours sleep is more important than eating. We are keeping our fingers crossed that she doesn't get used to a daytime sleeping routine!

Tasha is doing great and has already been up and walking around the hospital. She was great throught the whole birthing process. We are looking forward to retuning home tomorrow!

Thanks to Gram, Mama Sharon, Sharalee, Aunt Beth, Pop, and countless others for their love and support!

Photo Time

We recently had a good friend of ours take pictures of our girls. I originally thought we would just keep them put away until Christmas because we will probably use the pics for our Christmas cards. But they are just too cute that we can't wait any longer to share them! We just had a blast taking these pictures. Maycie had us laughing the whole time because she has such a contagious grin and loves to smile. And Emery loves to pose and be in her most "picture perfect" ways!

Our photographer was amyMOEphotography. If you live in Middle Tennessee check her out! She is very affordable and did a FANTASTIC job!

Halloween 2010

We absolutely LOVE Halloween. We are not so into the Spooky, or as Emery would say "CREEPY" side of Halloween. But we do love to decorate, dress-up, carve pumpkins, etc. Fun, Fun, Fun! This year Emery was a Bumble Bee and Maycie was a Butterfly. Lucky for me we already had all "stuff" for them to be these things. They had so much fun at our ward Trunk-or-Treat. We also went to the annual Pumpkinfest in downtown Franklin. They totally changed it this year and we were quite disappointed so we won't talk about that. We did also let our girls do some Trick-or-Treating on Sunday since that is when our neighborhood was doing it and they wanted to go to some of our neighbors homes. Sad thing is that I really didn't get many pictures. I guess we were just having too much fun!

Happy Birthday to my baby girl!! I can't believe she is already 2!! Maycie is such a joy to have around. She has such a tender heart and loves to dance and sing all day long! We love watching her grow and figure out the world around her. As tradition goes we start off the special day with a pancake breakfast.

Emery said...

Emery's interpretations of a few Christmas songs...
"Hosanya, Hosanya, Hosanya to Disney"
"Feliz Nubby-dub, Feliz Nubby-dub..."
I just giggle inside everytime I hear her sing these songs.

The Sweetest Thing

Our girls' bedtime routine consists of reading books, scripture stories, prayers, singing songs, and then Lots of Hugs and Kisses! I always whisper "I Love You" to each of them when I hug them. Well, tonight Maycie whispered back:
It was the sweetest thing ever considering that Maycie hardly talks.

Although she is no longer with us we think of her often. We are grateful to have this day to celebrate her. It will always be a tradition for our family to celebrate Whitney's birthday. Although Emery has vague memories of her and Maycie has never met her we want them to know how her through the memories we have of her.
We will always remember her sassy smile, raspy voice, and the spontaneity that she brought to the fam!

Best of Friends

Our really good friends, the Unck's, moved to Omaha a few weeks ago. I was just emptying the pics from my camera and came across the sweet pictures. We have many sweet memories with the Unck family! We miss them lots. Emery still talks every about how next time we drive to Utah we will stop in "Homaha". And that she is going to marry Tyler.
