The Allreds meet Tanner

Tanner's cousins, Mallory & Hanna, and his great Aunt Jo came to Dallas to meet him. I think they love him!!

Christmas Day

Merry Christmas and yes it was a white Christmas in Dallas! We had a great day, there were lots of surprises & Tanner got a rocking horse. This is so fun!

Christmas Eve

We joined Taylor and Amanda for lunch at their house and then went to Christmas Eve service with them at The Village Church. It began snowing midday and continue until late that evening. Kevin's parents joined us later in the afternoon and then Christmas PJs were opened. This is always a special time for our family and we were especially thrilled to have Tanner with us this year.

Lindsay & Tanner decorating Christmas cookies

We've usually had sugar cookies for Christmas and the kids use to decorate them on Christmas Eve. After many years of that tradition not happening, Lindsay and Tanner decided to do it this year. They were beautiful but is Tanner really helping!

Baylor/Texas Tech game at Cowboy Stadium

Thought I would post these pictures separate from our Thanksgiving post cause I wanted to share several. Did I mention how amazing the stadium is?!?!

Much to be thankful for at Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and continue to be thankful for the many blessings in our family. My parents from Houston and the kids spent the day with us. Tanner met his great grandparents, Nonnie and Granddaddy, and Sam has finally decided that he's OK with baby Tanner being around. On Saturday we went to the Baylor/Texas Tech game at the Cowboy Stadium and it was so fun. The stadium was amazing and the Bears came out to win. Unfortunately Tech came alive in the 2nd half and won 20 - 13.

As we're now in the holiday season be kind, be safe and have a very merry time!

Newest Pics of Tanner

We've been really busy with Tanner (taking pictures all the time!!). He's growing and changing every day. He went for his 2 week checkup today and weighed in at 9lbs. 9ozs. & 22 1/4" long. I'd say things are going OK for him! Both mom and Grammie were very proud of the glowing report from the doctor. The pictures posted were from this past weekend. Enjoy!

Tanner & Lindsay at Grammie & Pops

Tanner and Lindsay have visited this week and I feel pretty certain that Tanner will want to come back! So far it's whatever he wants!! Chris went back to work this week which allowed me the opportunity to tend to Lindsay if she needs me. She wanted a little change of scenery so we came to Grammie and Pops house. Sam has had a little adjusting to do and if spending the whole evening in the other room away from us tells us anything, I think he's a bit upset! He likes being the one we fuss over and stuff, but there's a new kid in town. We are amazed at how quickly this little guy is changing. He's developing some patterns which his mom recognizes, and beginning to fill out his clothes. Lindsay is doing a great job being Tanner's mom and I couldn't be more proud of her. And FYI, when you become a grandparent, some people send cute little gifts!! That was a big surprise and lots of fun. Hope you enjoy the latest pictures.

All's well with the Loucks family

We visited Tanner, Lindsay and Chris this morning and everyone is doing great. We got to just sit and visit and love our new little grandson. I don't think it gets any better than that! I've added some new pictures. Enjoy!

Tanner Christopher Loucks arrived today!

We welcomed Tanner Christopher Loucks this evening after a long day. He weighed in at 9 lbs. and 21 1/4 " long. And he is absolutely beautiful. Lindsay and Chris are doing very well, and we are so very proud of them for all they went through today. Lindsay ended up having to have a C-section, but that too went very well. Dr. Glen Heckman was the doctor that delivered Tanner and what a blessing he has been to all of us. OK, I get it, there is nothing like being a grandmother. Enjoy these pictures of my precious new grandson!

Welcome to our new blog spot

Well it's Tuesday evening, November 10th, and we are excited about starting our blog spot. We hope you'll visit us often and see what's going on. Don't feel you have to visit and you sure don't have to make comments, but I've really enjoyed my kids spots and thought this would be a great way to share a few things that are going on with us.

Many of you know that we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild who was actually due on Sunday, the 8th. Lindsay and Chris have been very patient, but eager for this new adventure in their lives. Details will be coming very soon!

Today is Amanda's birthday and it's just so fun celebrating with her. I hear her and Taylor went out to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate. They have been busy working on their house and tending to Miss Sydney. I'm not sure which is more difficult, but both their house and Syd are coming along great!

Thanks for spending a minute with us and check back soon. We will be having new updates soon!
