We went bowling while we were in Oklahoma. Here a few of the really cute pictures that I took.


We went to the movie “The Tale of Despereaux”. It was a really cute video and we all had to laugh at Jeffery and this big popcorn that was as big as him. He also ate almost the entire thing by himself.


While George, Chase and I were driving to Oklahoma we came across this sign, I had to take a picture. You see with my family we have a long joking that a cabin in Indian Canyon is for my brother Jacob and also in Duchsne there is a sign that say "Karren's Corner" as you can guess this for me, and know there is "Georgetown" named after George.

This is just a really pretty picture that I had taken out of Grand Junction on our way home. I should have taken alot more pictures on our trip to Oklahoma, therefore I promise that on my way home I will have alot more to show.

From our family to yours

From our family to yours we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!! That we all remember what Christmas represents. I think that we all get all stressed out and tend to forget what we are really celebrating. I hope that everyone enjoys their time with all their loved ones. I know that my George, Chase and I are really enjoying our time with Jaron, Melia, Jeffery and Brigham. I would like to say a special thank you to them to tell for giving us such a great visit and also for showing so much of Oklahoma. We really enjoyed our time with you and your family and feel the great spirit of your home.

The grinch

Yup that's me this year! I have the hardest time getting into the holiday season, I have tried to listen to Christmas music and get nothing maybe if I would have put up some Christmas decorations. Then I go and look at others blogs and read such great stories of people giving and sharing the story of Christ's birth and get all warm and fuzzy. I just looked at a blog and read a story about her and her family delivering goodies to the neighbors and family and friends, they had delivered to a neighbor and got a great response of gratitude that would have never been expected. That just shows that so many people love to know that they are even just being thinked of. I wanted to just say I hope that everyone can find at least someone to make their holiday just alittle bit sweeter, even if they just drop of some homemade cookies. I know that I will be doing what I can to make someone feel loved this holiday.

I am so thankful for this holiday season and what it represents. I think that we sometimes really forget what this time year really means or what we are celebrating. I hope that everyone has a great holiday and remembers to think of Jesus Christ on his birthday. I always to try to just happy birthday on that day, such a alittle reminder of what I am really celebrating.

Chase, Chase, Chase.....

What more can or do I have to say.... These are just a few of the pictures that I have captured of Chase. He is obessed with Coca Cola that is where his truck comes in. Then him and George are into playing this game "wow" aka War of Warcraft. Last but least Chasing playing on a family friends stilts (which by the way he ran into the ceiling fan and fell down, Yeah it was funny.) As much as he can drive me crazy he sure does make life fun.

The final Goodbye!

Saturday December 13th was the final goodbye to Grandma Allred. It was a bitter sweet funeral really hard to let her go but know that she is in a better place and pain free. Oh how we will miss her laugh, her cookies, lemon pudding, most of all the love that she shared with all of us. She was such a great role model to me. I know that we will see her again and she is all of our guardian angel.


Yes it's really late. I just wanted to post the only 3 pictures that I took at the family Thanksgiving dinner. I carry my camera everywhere and you would think that I would have alot more pictures, I will defintly try to work on that. I also promised my Uncle Doug that I would post the picture of him on "the blog". It was so great to see everyone and visit with everyone. I hope everyone has a great holiday.

Where does the time go?

I can NOT believe that it is December 2nd. Where does the time fly? I was thinking about this yesterday as I came to the conclusion that I will have worked for my boss for a full year already in just 29 days. It seems like just I just found yesterday that I didn't know if i would have a job at the end of the year. I am so thankful to know that I have so much, that some people don't have. I hope that everyone is ready for the holidays and has all their Christmas shopping done... I know I don't.
