Park Time

Wow!! It's January nearly February and we are spending sooo much time outside....with NO coats!!! It's just nuts!! But we are LOVIN it!! This weekend the kids and I met up with Billie, Blayre and Peyton for some park time.
Playing house or restaurant or something but they were taking orders and making soup and Colt was some kind of animal??!!

Even Billie got into the playground action.

So the cock eye smile has turned into this crazy half smile??!! The kid is hilarious!!
Little Peyton is just precious!!Swing time!!

A Christmas Story.....Part 3

Our third and final Christmas celebration happened on New Years. Dad wanted an ugly sweater contest so we all came prepared....Here we all are showing off our ugliest. Let the opening frenzy begin!!! It's like a mad house...paper flying, kids screaming, nana handing out more and more, parents trying to pick up paper....madness!! I guess when you're young you don't think of it like that cause there were 8 cousins when we were all young and it seemed so cool and calm then. :)
Who wouldn't love these two???Dylann just slept through the entire thing.....oh to be a baby again!!Riley definitely got her baby Dilly time in. She was LOVIN her some Dylann and wanted to hold her and wanted to feed her and she needs her binky and someone get her some covers and mom she probably needs her diaper changed.....thank goodness we will be having none of that at our house!!!4 Generations of Allen women....priceless!!Nana and one of her girls.
Nana and the ORNERY boys!!

And then there was punch and things just got nuts.Champagne cups were clinking and held high....People were takin their shirts off....Wahoo was played.....Red mustaches were grown....Wahoo was won.....OH YEAH...Champs 2011!!And then they crashed!!! What goes up must come down! We had an amazing Holiday season!!

A Christmas Story....Part 2

After opening our presents from Santa we cleaned up and headed to Pampa for Christmas with the Moores.

We started the fun off with an annual story from Mimi.

Listening.....sort ofTrying to avoid the camera.Addison played Santa and passed out all the gifts. The girls got American Girl Dolls that look like them.And Colt got new boots!!! If you're wondering about the Spiderman costume. He got a box of super hero costumes Christmas morning and wouldn't wear anything else!!!This is Debbie having a minor melt down when we thought Gregg's new Ipod got thrown in the fire.....we did eventually find it. Just a small Griswold moment.Stephanie wearing a stocking cap I knitted for her. Mimi with the grands. After MANY attempts of Mimi trying to get Riley to have "coffee talk" with her she found her a "coffee talk" companion. Can you tell by his face that he's already had 2 cups??!!! No naps for him that day!!We even got snow Christmas day in Pampa!! Can't remember the last time I had a White Christmas??!!Mimi cooked it up for us and my waist line is feelin the pain now!!! UGHHHHHThe girls of course made gingerbread houses. Colt wanted NOTHING to do with them.

We had a great time in Pampa.....spoiled, stuffed and sent home!!!
