How have the Allreds been?

Well let me tell you....

Morgan just celebrated her 2nd birthday yesterday. She's so much fun and very persistant. She's a big fan of movies, milk, and her baby brother Travis. She talks very well and learns loads of things every day.

This is the best I could do with keeping her still for a picture.
Travis is 7 months old, can sit, and got his 1st tooth on Tuesday. He smiles all the time, even when he's not feeling well. He's such a joy to have in our home.
Matthew is teaching at the high school. this is his 1st year. I am mom, and work once a week or so as a nurse at the hospital here. I'd write more, but one of my babies is crying. We love all of you! love, Maren

Movin' on up... To Massachusetts!

This week has been totally insane.

I'm flying to Massachusetts to live with Aaron and Amy next Wednesday morning at 7:00. I am really, really, really excited for this awesome opportunity. It's really spur of the moment, I only heard about the decision I had to make Monday. I made up my mind by Tuesday night and we got my tickets Wednesday.

I'm starting my new Senior year on September 2nd.

I love you guys! Hopefully I'll be home for Christmas... but who knows?

In the Wee Hours of the Morning...

Here I am at 0115 awake and awaiting the passing of time. I'm at work here in the Willcox Hospital. We've got 7 patients (4 of which are basically nursing home patients). So it's been about a year since I've made a post, which is why I would be a very bad candidate for my own blog, if that makes sense.
In January we moved to Willcox, and had our baby Travis 2 weeks later. At home. The same midwife as the one Lacy used. :). I started working basically one night a week at the end of April. Matthew officially has started his new career as a High School and Middle School teacher. He will be teaching Personal Finance for Seniors, and Career Exploration for 8th graders (he got his Bachelors degree in Accounting). He also is an assistant coach for the football team, so we will be seeing quite a bit less of him from now through October. Go Cowboys!
Morgan will be 2 in a couple weeks. She is quite the jabber, and is getting pretty good at throwing fits and she just adores Travis. She gets pretty excited when he wakes up from his naps, "Travis Awaken!?"
Travis is 6 months old, a little bit underweight right now, but is just the smilin'est kid I've ever seen. He is super ticklish and loves to put his feet in his mouth. We're working on getting him to sit by himself.
We are one happy family. Sorry no pictures. Like I said, I'm at work. Maybe I'll get to that some time soon. :) Love ya'll.
