Skunk Hunt

For some time now we have had a skunk that visits. We've never seen him, but he definitely makes him presence known. Last night when we got back from dinner with some friends, we spotted our little friend leaving the driveway and heading for our back yard.
Alex, Erik and Jason

As you can see, the guys decided to unload Jason's truck and go on a "skunk hunt" in the back yard. Yes, those are REAL GUNS. What were they thinking?!?!?!?!?!

Happy Thanksgiving

Today, I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I have so, so many things to be thankful for. I am particularly thankful today for our good friends, Kevin and Tiffany. On Monday, they were blessed with a small miracle and I couldn't be happier for them. Cooper Dale Jones was born at 26 weeks weighing 1 lb 11 oz and 12 inches long. He is truly a small miracle from God and a blessing to Kevin and Tiffany. I'm so thankfully that God was taking care of this little boy as he made his grand entrance into this world and he has provided doctors and nurses the knowledge to care for him now that he is here. I hope you will join me in continuing to pray for Kevin and Tiffany as they have been released from the hospital and Cooper remains. We love this family and know that they can use all the prayers they can get.

We love you Kevin, Tiffany and Cooper Jones!!

Some Catching Up

Things have been hectic at the Perry house, but hopefully they will start settling down.

Most of you know, Alex has been having some trouble with his elbow for quite some time and this week he had to have surgery on it to repair the damage and hopefully he'll start getting better soon! In the meantime, he will be in a brace for probably about 6 - 8 weeks. Let's hope that when it is all over with, he will be healthy and mobile again!!

Today, starts the whirlwind of holiday festivities and I'm kind of excited. I want to share these memories with our children and hopefully when they get older they will look back and remember little moments that they will cherish for a lifetime. First stop, Casey, Brandon and Addison's house for Thanksgiving with my mom's family.

Let's Go Trick or Treating

Halloween was a fun filled day!! We started at the church for the trunk or treat. As you can see, Daddy had to help Maddie with her hair because her hat kept messing it up. :) I love moments like these!!!
After some time at the church, we stopped at Sonic for corndogs and headed home for some more trick or treating in our neighborhood. Ashton and Maddie started at our neighbor's house, whom love the kids like they are their own grandkids.

As you can see, they hit the jack pot at their house and boy were they excited!!!!

Here is a cute little picture of Ashton, Maddie and Kaleb looking "scary".

Halloween at school

Ashton and Maddie had a little Halloween party at school and they got all dressed up to go.

This is Ashton and his friend, Lance, from his class and below his a few of the kids that were dressed up that he wanted his picture made with. :)

Ashton's New Bike

Ashton got a new bike for his birthday and he's been a little intimidated by it being "taller" than his other one. I think he'll get the hang of it with a little more practice. : )

We had a little grandparent's dinner on his birthday and he wanted to show Grammy and Geega how he could ride. As you can see, Grammy AND Geega both decided to ride too! Would you have ever thought this was something you'd see?!?!
