Hello? Hi!! Just checking in here on our good ol' sisters blog :) It's been a while, obviously. The three older sisters had babies all around the same time last year and this blog here did not survive through that time of change ;)

We've tossed around the idea of starting up this blog again, but we're still figuring it all out. So for now, I thought I'd update you on our lives right now!

Marie is the cutest hip mama of four adorable kids. Doing an amazing job home-schooling them. She is pretty much super mom! I look up to her so much!


I (Lulu) now live in the same state as Marie! 2 weeks after Logan was born, in December 2013, Steve graduated from chiropractic school and we moved to Spokane, WA, where he took his first job. (No wonder I haven't blogged on here since then;) We love where we live! Washington has been so good to us.

We're lucky enough to spend Christmas with ALL of Steve's family this year...which hasn't happened for 4 years! That means family pictures were in order today! At the end of the marathon photoshoot we snuck this one with my phone :) Christmas has always bUntitled

Emma gave birth to cute little Sawyer in March 2014 and just a couple month after that, Jake took a job in NYC, so they made the big move to the east coast! It was a little bit of an adjustment for Emma at first because living in the city with three little children is not easy! But I think if you asked her now, she would say that she loves it there :)


And little Lissie is all grown up now ;) She is now attending BYU in Provo, UT, majoring in Dance and German. She's having a blast living the college life.


There you have it! A very brief update on us! Until we can figure out a blogging schedule that works for all four of us, you can find us on Instagram where we all post pretty regularly :)


Thanks for following along! :)

My due date is 2 weeks away and I think it's safe to say that I've been nesting :) I've been getting things all ready for the baby including these projects I've been working on. Saturday night I was able to finish it all up and I thought I would share these drawings here. If you saw the originals that I copied these from, they're really not that impressive but I had a lot of fun doing it and thinking about the baby that I'll be holding in my arms and pushing around in a stroller so soon!

I'm so happy to be a mom and I cannot wait to hold that baby in my arms and smell that newborn smell!! Seriously, how can I wait two more weeks?! Seems like an eternity ;)

love, Lulu

Oh, Charlton...

You've stolen my heart. I am so over-the-moon in love with you, baby boy!

(So, I've attempted two little photoshoots with this guy, and have gotten a handful of pictures that I love, but I have to admit I've had a really hard time squeezing in as many pictures as I'd like with all that goes into being a momma of four. It seems like by the time I have everyone situated, and everything set up, the sun is setting! (Stinkin' daylight savings.) Luckily, I have a handful of pictures I'm in love with, and tomorrow I plan on giving it another go. But for now, I just have time to post this one picture that I took of him with his eyes open today. Seeing it kinda  makes me want to go get him out of his crib right now and smother him in smooches. I just love him.

Happy Halloween!

Hey wassup everybody?! Happy Halloween. ;)
I thought I'd just give you a little update on my life real quick...

I'm a college girl now. All the way in Rexburg, Idaho at BYU-I-do. Mmmhmm. No Allred girls will be getting married soon though. You were probs wondering. 

This past Saturday I got accepted into the Dance Department, so I'm a dance major! What what!

I'm on the ballroom collegiate dance team. Totes fun. 

I abbreviate all my words now. 'teves. (=whatever)

My roommates are the best! One of them looks like T-swizzle. 
We were going to have her dress up as Taylor Swift and the rest of us be her ex-boyfriends for Halloween but...I felt like being pregnant was  a pretty popular thing to be this year, so I just decided to be that.
Life is really busy but I'm lovin' it! I'm excited to see Emily at thanksgiving and then the rest of you at Christmas next month! 

Total, true, love,

Charlton Edwin has arrived!

And we are all crazy proud aunties over here! I just wanted to post these sweet pictures mostly from Marie's instagram. He arrived On Friday evening and both are doing great! Is Marie not the most beautiful mama you have ever seen? And Charlie's dark hair?! So sweet. I can hardly handle it! I'm sure Marie will want to post more pictures of him later on and give him a better introduction but I couldn't help myself from sharing these lovely pictures of my new nephew. I keep refreshing Marie's feed hoping she has posted more pictures of him and suddenly Christmas is seeming very far away!

He is just the cutest and I'm very proud to be his Aunt Lulu ;)

31 weeks.

31 weeks31 weeks1

Here I am! I'm alive! I kind of dropped off the face of the earth when I got pregnant. I'm not sure how people keep up with things when they're pregnant because I just couldn't do it! I guess I have a good reason for being gone: I have been growing a baby inside me! Honestly, I feel like one of the hardest things I've ever had to do is be pregnant during my first trimester and have to take care of my two year old at the same time! Whenever we have another I'm sure I'll just look back and think I had it so easy ;)

Anyway, in these pictures I am 31 weeks. I'm actually 34 weeks now since these were taken over three weeks ago, so I'm even bigger now, if you can imagine that! My wonderful husband took these pictures of me and I was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out. As pretty as I don't feel when I'm pregnant, I think he did a pretty good job. He always makes me feel beautiful no matter what I really look like and I love him for that :)

In about 6 weeks we will welcome baby #2 into our family and I am pretty dang excited to meet my baby! I'm not always good at not complaining throughout all the discomfort that pregnancy brings but I sure am lucky to be a momma to two little boys. I'm a lucky girl :)

And I'm so excited to start up the sisters blog again! I've missed it! And really, it's fun to document all three of the older sisters being pregnant at the same time. I mean, when will this ever happen again?!?

Maternity Shots As Promised...

Maternity photos from each of us pregnant sisters is coming as promised, but  Lulu suggested we post them separately, and for me to go first since I won't be pregnant for too much longer. (My due date is Sunday--hurray!) I'm thinking I will probably go late, but ya never know.

Anyway, here they are! It's always hard for me to find the motivation to have maternity pictures taken, but I never seem to regret it. It's fun to look back and see what I looked like pregnant with each of my kids, and I think my children will someday enjoy the pictures as well. At least I hope so! And a big thanks to my hubby for taking them and being so patient with me not liking most of them. I kept saying, "Just take like five more!" And he'd roll his eyes at me, knowing full well that wasn't the truth.

I think one of the secrets to getting good pictures is taking a million of them... the odds are in your favor that way. :)
