Family Pictures and Prego Shoot

I have been wanting some good maternity pictures. So Timmy asked my very talented sister in law Kim, to take some of me. And do some pictures with T.J and Pammie and my belly. We went to an orange orchard, and got some really great shots!;] We had a lot of fun trying to get the kids to smile, and look at the camera at the same time. I love, love, love, how they turned out! Thank you so much Kim! You gave me exactly what I wanted!! Now that Levi is here we will do some more family pictures soon!

It's all about Pammie Shea Allen

I just wanted to talk a little about my sweet girl, Pamela Shea! Now that she is 18 months her little personality is really showing, so here are a few things about Pammie.
- She loves her brother.
- She loves to hear how pretty she is!
- She is a BIG tease.
- She will go on kissing sprees and kiss everyone in the room.
- She love to follow Taryn around the house watching her get ready.
- She is not afraid of anything!
- She LOVES to eat!!!
- And when the time calls for it she can be a little tuffy!
- She love to know what is going on at all times.
- She is a big cuddler.
- She really is a very sweet girl.

I really could go on and on. I am so grateful for her in my life! She bring such a different light into our home. I don't know what I would do without her. When she is sleeping I can't wait to see her smiling face again! I hope that we will always maintain our good relationship.

Pammie really is a light in our home and she is loved by all who know her!

Happy 21st Birthday Little Sis!

Today is my little sisters, Taryn's 21st birthday! I can't believe she is 21! I can still remember being so excited, waiting at Grandmas and Grandpas Smiths, for dad to pick us up to go see her in the hospital. Now 21 years later we are still living under the same roof! She is such a blessing in my life. T.J and Pammie love her being around. She has helped me out so much with my kids and around the house. I have seen her form a cute little blond, that had the hole family wrapped around her finger. To a Beautiful Young Adult, that still has DAD wrapped around her finger! (Which is how it should be!)

Taryn I'm excited for you to start a new chapter in her life, going to message school. Good luck Sis. I know you will work hard and make the best choices for you! You really are a Great Little Sis and a Wonderful Aunt! Happy Birthday!!:)

Cute Sweet Boys!!

The joys of being pregnant, and having boys! I took my wedding ring off the other day, and could not put it back on! So I put them on a necklace. Like I have done with past pregnancies. This morning T.J noticed them on my necklace...
(We have always told him that he can have a girlfriend after he gets home from his mission. He is aloud to date all he wants before his mission, but no girlfriends until after!)
....He then tells me
"Mom when I get home from my mission and have a girlfriend. I need to give her this ring."

"But this is mine! Your dad gave this to me!"

"But it don't fit you any more. So I have to give it to my girlfriend! I can have the small one (the wedding band), and she can have the sparkle one (the diamond ring)."

"Well then what will I have?"

"You get a new diamond one!"

"You had better marry this girl T.J. She had better be the one!"

"I know Mama!"

OK so there you have it. T.J is going to give MY wedding ring to HIS girl friend. And I'M going to get a new one! At least that's the story for now. It might change when I do fit into my rings again. Or when his girlfriend decides that she don't like it. Either one!

For Timmy-By the way, I love my wedding ring, and would hate to part with it! It fits my personality perfect! Thanks My Love! But if T.J is going to give it to his girlfriend I do need another one, maybe a bigger one?;) Maybe?!:o

Dr. appt.

Back in March, around Pammie Shea's first birthday I started felling gross. I was being picky with my food (which is totally not me! I eat whatever and whenever!) But I blew it off like it was nothing. Then the beginning of April the same things were going on, but now I was puking in the morning. I was convinced something was wrong! So I took a test, a pregnancy test! You'll never guess what it said! Yup I was prego! I really didn't want to believe I took another one. Of course it said the same thing! My baby had just turned one and I'm prego again! I had mixed emotions. I was overwhelmed and scared! How was I going to make things work with two kids under 2. I know many women who have done it so I knew it was possible. I know I'm prego. Next, is calling the Dr. right? Wrong! After all the puking stopped (which was like 2 or 3 weeks later. Yes I am so blessed!) I started to feel really good! A side from the being tired, and body aches. I was really feeling great! I thought well, I feel so good, why not wait to see the Dr. I knew what he was going to tell me. With this being my third I could tell if something was wrong.

This week I decided it was time! I set the appt. for Friday July 10 at 9:15. First I had the ultrasound. And was very excited to find out that I was having another sweet Boy! Then I found out I was 23 weeks and 3 days along! Over half way!! I'm due November 3! I love that my first Dr. appt was half way through my pregnancy. And that I got to find out what I was having right off!

I am so blessed to be having a really good pregnancy and healthy kids! I'm so thankful for the blessing that children bring into our home! I'm so excited for this next little one to join our family! Things will be hard but I know I can always get through them with my Heavenly Father and my family by my side!:)

Poke her face!

So here is a really cute story about T.J! We were all driving out to the in-laws for dinner, and the song Poker Face by Lady Gaga came on. Tim and I think she is weird but has a few good songs. So I look back at T.J in his car seat, and I could tell he was thinking hard. When the song was over he said.... "Mommy, I don't like to poke her face, I'll poke her hand" and then started to poke his hand with his finger. Tim and I laughed so hard! We have one smart boy! I love how little minds think!

First Primary Talk

T.J. gave his first talk in Primary today. He and his mom spent all week working on it. He did such a good job. I wanted to quickly share some of the highlights with you. While working on it one day, Shiloh was helping him to bare his testimony. He proceeded to say he loved his mom and dad, he loved Primary, he loved his teachers. Then out of nowhere he threw his hands up in the air and said, "I'm thankful for Barack Obama!" Shiloh said that maybe he should say that he is thankful for President Monson. T.J. asked her, "who's that? Is that Barack Obama's friend?" I think Shiloh and I have some teaching to do.

Today after his wonderful talk, the Primary leader said thank you for your talk T.J. He turned around and gave her the double thumbs up! He is such my kid! Have a great week guys!

My baby boy is not a baby any more!!!

It's his party and he'll cry if he wants to!! I really don't know why he was crying, I just thought it was funny! I guess he still has SOME growing up to do!:) He's so cute when he crys!

Bishop Smith, again!

My Dad was a bishop when I was 8. After my mom died, any time a new bishop was being called he would happily say "I know its not me, there are no single bishops!" Now that Dad and Mama have been married for a year and a half, I guess it was now time. My Daddy was called to be the bishop over the Young Single Adult Ward in the Glendale Stake. Ya,I know!! He will do great!! They both are excited to serve the singles. I think it will keep them young. I know being a bishop will have it's hard times and good times. I'm just so excited for them. I know they will have a great time!

I love it!!:)

5 years!!

January 15 was my 5 year Anniversary with the Greatest Man In The World! 5 years ago I was sealed to my best friend, for time and all eternity. It was the best day of my life! We now have 2 beautiful kids, that we love more than anything! We have had our hard times and are good times. One thing is for sure, is that we are in love more now than we were 5 years ago, and that just gets me excited for the next 5 years!

For our anniversary we went on a day trip to San Francisco. We had a great time, and made lots of memories! We will get pictures up soon, and all the fun details! :)

Ya, I'm Young!

Saraiah is the BEST!.....So I went to cosmetology school with the best stylist I know. I have been Lucky to be one of her clients, and she has done it again!

Tim and were talking the other day about what I should with my hair. I was planning on just coloring my hair all the same color. When I told Timmy what I had planned he started making fun of me! Saying "Your young, just 24, you need to be bold, not boring!"

Every time I go in I always give her my two sence and she runs with it. This is what she came up with! I totally love it! Do you think this is Bold enought for Timmy?

I'm so excited to do my hair now! I know that sounds funny, but its amazing how doing something as little as getting your hair done makes you feel!:)

So ya I'm young! I can TOTALLY pull this off! I may be a wife and a mother of two, but I am JUST 24! All you young mothers out there, come on lets all be BOLD together!!:)
