Busy Oct.

Man, where did the month of October disappear to?!
Can't say I don't mind time flying by because in less than a month I'll be in the sunshine state of Arizona with my WHOLE family ( been FOREVER since that has happened)
Weston and his team have completed their regular season of football and are off to play offs. They beat Malta, number one team in the state, this last weekend. 20-0 A very exciting game to watch. They all played so great. Love watching two Allen cousins play together!
Weston and the parentals before senior night!

Planned my first baby shower for Freddie J. Have to say so myself it was a rockin' party and had a great turn out. Freddie was the hit of the party!

Munched on rich chocolate and cream cheese strawberry cupcakes, kisses, nuts and crackers.
Jodie Shobe helped me with the treats. Panda gave me the recipe for the strawberry cream cheese cupcakes....umm best cupcakes ever!(AND a lot of calories...bon appetite)

Dad is getting ready to ship his calves in the next couple weeks or so. Dad, mom, Weston and I made a quick search for any missing pairs last Saturday on the mountain ranch. 20+miles on a horse = three pairs found nestled away in the pine trees. Everytime I have the opportunity to take a day off and ride for a day I forget how much I love my simple Montana life. (no makeup, hair not done, no cell service, no facebook, no worries:) ) Wouldn't change it for anything.

Best horse ever!

Still a little green hanging on! Was the perfect day for riding.

Ready for some football!!!

Before taking off on my vacation to Utah Renae treated me to a pedi!!! La la loved it!! Great way to start off a weekend of craziness/driving/football/no sleep/shopping etc!

AND of course zebra print:)

Started the vaca off with all you can eat Sushi in Provo! Can you say Bon Appetite!

While waiting for our food had some fun posing for the camera...this is Bri's "look Channing Tatum just walked in" look! :)

Cousins rule!!! Loved getting to spend time with Brianna and getting to know her better! Stayed at her apt Friday night and I believe we talked for four hours straight that night!! Love girl nights!

About a month ago Sarah and I decided we wanted to hit up a BYU football game this year so that is the real reason of this trip (Yes we drove a 20 hr round trip to watch the game....true blue fans right here). Dusty (Sarah's bf/my cousin) came with us. While we shopped he would go golfing and do the more manly things. Had so much fun with them both.
Can you tell Bri can't wait for Christmas?? AND she ended up buying all of that, her roomates won't allow any decorations till November! The countdown has begun.
The two love birds on the way to the game. Since traffic is always backed up for hours we decided to take a free shuttle bus from the mall to the stadium.

Was a great homecoming game for the Cougars. They've been struggling this year but pulled through for this game.
Can you tell Sarah and I raided the BYU bookstore for our Cougar gear! Ra ra ra ra ra go COUGARS!!!

Dusty, Sarah and I made a quick stop at temple square Sunday morning to listen to Music and the Spoken Word. Was such an amazing feeling in the tabernacle and listening to the Mormon Tabernacle choir. Sarah and Dusty had never been to look around the square, was fun showing them around.
I've been to Music and the Spoken word two times in my life and usually it's just the choir singing but Sunday the prophet was there listening. Was so amazing to see him in person, you could definitely feel his spirit in the building. Along with the prophet Glen Beck showed up!

Was so nice to get away for a weekend but I definitely was ready to come home and get back to my normal life!! Still trying to catch up from lost sleep!

Welcome Freddie J Allen

Haeli and Jaxon around 10 AM waiting for those contractions to start.....
Haeli insisted on having some makeup on before she was too far into labor. :) notice no roots either! That was our ongoing joke, how she would wear her hair, makeup, nails etc!!

12 hours later= Cute little boy! This was seconds after he was pushed out. Haeli is seriously my labor hero! It was such an amazing experience to be there the whole time and to be a part of helping her focus, breathe and relax. She was in so much pain and she fought through it with no drugs! The nurses came in 4 times to ask.." Should we give you pain medication". Everytime the answer was no. My mom was also in the delivery room and really helped her focus. Such an amazing thing that womens bodies can do that no guy will ever experience......She pushed that big Allen head out in 3 contractions (10 minutes). She's amazing!

Jaxon holding his son! Freddie has had respiratory problems since he was born. This morning nurses still had oxygen by him so the doctors decided to fly him over to Great Falls to be on the safe side. Jaxon gave him a blessing before he was flown away in the helicopter. Was such a sweet experience to hear my brother give his first fathers blessing for this little guy to get better. Had everyone teared up.

Isn't he soo cute!?

We meaning my dad, mom,Weston, Jaxon, Haeli, Colter, Nubia and I all had tickets to Brad Paisley last night in Bozeman. Jaxon and Haeli sold their tickets a few months ago thinking it'd be too close to her delivery to be driving. I was supposed to head over yesterday to meet up with Colt, Nubie, Weston and my dad but at the last minute I decided to stay and be with the hospital crew. Even though the concert was amazing so glad I stayed.

Still hasn't had his first bath but look at that dark hair!

Quite the equipment they flew Freddie over in. Little scary looking at him hooked up to all those tubes and IV's.

We're praying his lungs will be trained to start working fully on his own. The doctors say he's doing good just need to keep him at the hospital for a few days to make sure he's 100% ready. Keep him in your prayers.
