Super Hero's!

I was downstairs in the basement last night, wasting time away.   As I was tinkering with the computer, I heard little whisperings that were getting closer to me.  I wanted them to know I was surprised as I waited upon there arrival.   They jumped around the corner and both yelled: "Yah-ha'! 

Meet " Jungle Boy and Monkey Girl".  

(I am mean for posting this.  But can't help myself).

Osborn Christmas Party

This last Thursday we got together for our Osborn side of the family. (my mothers side).
My Grandma has a wonderful talent playing the Organ and piano.  She and my cousin Michelle (who also is very talented and teaches lessons) played a organ/piano duet for all her children and grandchildren/great grandchildren.  We had a great time getting together as we always do.
Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived shortly after and entertained the little ones.  Thanks Julie and Ron for putting together another great family christmas event.

This is just a small portion of the family christmas parties that me and my family attend.  
More pictures to come...  
Merry Christmas!

Ice Skating!

Yesterday we spent the night downtown ice skating and enjoying the holiday season.  Our kids loved it!  Austin and I were amazed with them, after falling over and over, they never gave up and wanted to continue!  They didn't want to go home.  In the words of Houston, "This is my favorite sport"!  By the end of the night, he was able to skate on his own.  And Taryn was doing just as well!  She is a natural!  I was impressed with them both!    I think I will be able to take them on my own now.  Cause they "want to skate all the time now"!  Thanks Austin for planning a fun family evening!

Spooky costumes this year...

 Gone are the days of superhero's and fairy princess'.  My kids both wanted to be spooky this year.  Oh, well.  We had fun!  They have such a festive mom.  I enjoy Halloween just as much as any young kid.  I always have.  I love creepin' out the house and blasting the scary halloween sounds for the trick or treaters that come by.  Houston was a scary phantom (the costume originally came with a mask, but after he saw me paint taryns face, he wanted to do a scary face for all to see).  Taryn was Mortisha from the Adams family.  I love how each time I take a photo, they stay in true character.

Our Home

Ok , Natasha... Just for you. :) 
This was taken under construction.  Since I have been so busy getting things settled
with the home (plus I mistakingly spilled soy sauce all over my camera)...  I have not taken any recent photos of our house since the yard has been
completed and the home finished.   We are loving it!!!!  My favorite part about the home are the stairs and the kitchen.    I will soon update with more pictures.   This whole process took forever, but we are happy it's over with.    And don't even ask...No Austin and I WON'T be adding more children to fill up the space.    *Just built for us and our entertaining purposes. ;)

No computer :(

I am using my friend Shandells computer due to the fact that I miss blogging but we have no Internet set up yet. How sad... So just a speedy update for the Allreds.

We have moved into our new home in riverton (just a street behind our old one) pretty weird I know, but we are happy with this decision we made. Come stop by and say hello! We have been here about 3 1/2 weeks so far and it has been the easiest move yet! I will upload pictures soon.

We got straight to our yard as well. We built a great fire pit, it's great for those nights with friends and family just chillin ... Austin and I are quite proud of this new home of ours, cause it took soooooo long to build (a full year) and was extra stressful on us with all the hassle we had to go through. But in the long run, we are in and settled now (well not quite, we need more furniture now) and hoping that Austin can stay put for about 10 yrs. in this one!!! I am sick of moving!!!

I have to go home , Houston is about to return from school.

That's our update in a nutshell!

Camping at Bear Lake

The night before we left to Bear Lake, our kids were so excited to sleep in a tent that they requested that we pitch a tent in our backyard. It was fun!!! Bear Lake was the typical... choppy and cold. But hot out side, burnt skin, sandy bottoms, sandy food, but best of all precious time with extended family. This has been a yearly traditon(I have been going for almost 28) with all the Hanson Family. Austin and I have just missed a few years, because of pest control season. Each year the family grows and grows. It gets harder and harder to try and find places to stay, this year we camped. My kids loved it and were happy the whole time! Our camp was right next to the beach and kept the kids entertained for hours burying cousins in the sand! (that picture is of Taryn coverd)

Linquist Cabin with the Allreds Over the 4th

Here are some random pics of the allreds. We all stayed at the Lindquits cabin. We took our boat up, no one would ski cause the lake up there was freezing!!! But the kids did at least want to tube (slowly). :)
