Sunday Night Football!!!

On Sunday afternoon...Lance, Andy, Landan, Leytan and some of their friends, headed to Indianapolis, Indiana to watch the Colts vs. Chargers football game. On the way there, they stopped for dinner at Red Robin:) The boys sprayed their hair blue and cheered their hearts out. Too bad the Colts lost:( They didn't return home until about 2:30AM. They had a FUN but LATE night!

Thanksgiving in PICTURES:)


We ate...and ATE:) LOL!!!

We sang...yes, me TOO;)

We played games...Checkers was the fave this year:) But we also played Jenga, Battleship, etc.
Good food, great times and wonderful family!!! We have SO much to be "Thankful" for. Levi didn't totally understand the holiday...but he still enjoyed it. He kept asking if it was someone's "Happy Birthday?!" LOL! God is GOOD!!! Actually...He is GREAT!!! I love my Lord!

Thanksgiving Eve Morning...

Wednesday morning we woke to the bright reddest sunrise I have ever seen. It was so GORGEOUS that I had to take time out of my always hectic morning and take a few pictures below:) Even these really don't capture just how RED the entire sky shined. VERY cool!!!


Years ago at the Perry house (when Lauren, Landan and Leytan were very little;) we started a tradition of letting the kids each decorate their very own Christmas trees. The kiddos usually pick a new ornament or other decoration each year for their tree. So...after school on Wednesday, I took Levi to Halmark to pick out his tree and a few decorations:) He is SO proud of his tree and it isn't even finished yet. I did go ahead and let him put the lights, garland and the couple new ornament on but then explained that he would have to wait to finish with the rest of his siblings on Saturday. Yes, we always put up our Christmas decorations on the Saturday after Thanksgiving;) So, TODAY is the big day!!! We will soon have 7 beautiful trees throughout the house. They also get to choose where they would like to display their trees. Levi chose the hallway right outside his bedroom for his tree. Notice the sign he made for it. I guess he wanted to make sure EVERYONE knew which one was his. TOO cute!!!

Putting on the garland...
So happy and PROUD!!!
I am so happy to be spending this holiday season with my boy this year. He is such a blessing to our family. Love you Levi!!!

Our new toy:)

Last week I got the new XBox Kinects for our family. Kind of an early Christmas present;) It is SO much fun!!! I am not a huge video game fan but this is certainly different. NO controllers and SO much movement! Lilyan's favorite is definitely the white water rafting. The other kids enjoy a variety of Adventure games and also Dance Central. I like the dancing one too;) Yes...I took some video of the kids dancing but would NOT let them take any of me. LOL!!! Here is a video of Levi:

VERY cool!!! Way to go Levi:)
