Happy New Year

Wow...I guess I have had a ton to blog about. I guess that is what happens when you are a month behind. So, for those who know the Allen family pretty well you wouldn't be shocked to hear we were at the cabin over the new year's. We always do fun things when we are at the cabin. But the new year's trip is the big snowmobiling trip. So we watch a lot of movies, eat a lot of food, the boys like to go hunting, we play on the snowmobiles, and play games. Its a lot of fun.

We went shooting one of the days, which was fun.

These pictures are what Ty would call "creating fake memories" we weren't really shooting at the time but hey you got to get pictures some how ha ha.

Jeff and Ty went hunting together and got six ducks!

Its the most wonderful time of the Year

Merry Christmas Everyone! Jeff and I had a great Christmas! We had a lot of fun hanging out with family and spoiling each other rotten. It was nice this year because we didn't have any parties on Christmas so we just got to relax and enjoy the day. We also got to talk to my brother corban for the last time before he come home from his mission in Oklahoma. So anyway we had a blast and hope for great Christmas to come!

All the boys got Bean-O for Christmas, the picture explains it's self

Christmas Eve

If you couldn't tell by my pictures we had Santa come to our Christmas eve party at the Carter home. He also brought his lovely wife Mrs. Clause :D This year was my first year not going to my grandma Herbert's for Christmas eve. Luckily Jeff's family does pretty much the same thing my family does for Christmas eve. We eat, do a little talent show, sing and Jeff's family does white elephants. It was different being somewhere else but still a lot of fun.

Even Kathy sat on Santa's lap

McKailey told Santa that she wanted a Dora doll with a pony.

The Barry Family Dental Group Christmas Party

I had so much fun at our Christmas party this year! We went to Noah's in Lindon. We had a good dinner then got to hang out and Ice skate on the roof. The people I work with are awesome and I am lucky to have such a great job. Thank you to Dr. Barry and Dr. Dave!

This is my Buddy Liz! She is Awesome.

Fun pictures

The day after Thanksgiving we went out to dinner with Frank and Kathy and Dave and Krissa and while waiting for our table Mckailey and I took some silly pictures. I have the cutest niece. She is so fun to be with, you can always count on a good laugh when McKailey is around.

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving this year! As always we start off the day with the Turkey bowl with the Carlson side of the family. I didn't get to watch much of the game this year because Jeff and I decided to be adventurous and go to both our families thanksgiving dinners. So I had four food assignments. I made two jello salads, two pumpkin pies and 10lbs of mashed potatoes. So I was a little busy. We first went to the Herbert's at 12:00 and then over to the Carter's at 2:00. So lets just say we ate a lot of food. It was a lot of fun. I am grateful we both have family close by so its easy to see everyone for the holidays.
