New member to the family!

We have a new member to the family!! His name is Jax. He is 6 weeks old.

Sam has had a fear of dogs so we have waited to get one. She saw a small puppy at one of the basketball games at school and just loved it so we decided it was time to get one. She has fallen in love with him!!! So have the rest of us!

We were not expecting to get one as soon as we did, but a friend called us about him and we just couldn't say no. So we have had him for 2 weeks now. He is really a sweet little guy but very feisty!

Yesterday around noon it started to snow again and we received about 6 inches when it was all said and done. Snow is pretty but we have had enough for the year! I think this is the 3rd or 4th snow we have had. The 2nd big snow of the year. It's so unusual for us to get any snow so we are a little shocked about it all this year.

Sam started running fever yesterday morning, so once again she is unable to go out and play in the snow. Garrett has been out playing in it a good bit today. And of course Jax has had his first experience with the snow. He was not sure about it at first but he has enjoyed pouncing and playing in the snow. He is so cute in it. The snow is deeper than he is tall in some places but he keeps playing!!

I am really ready for us to have warmer weather! Getting excited about baseball season just around the corner. Soon our lives will consist of baseball, baseball and more baseball. I LOVE IT!!! I love to watch Garrett play sports. He is such a competitive player and I guess you could say that I am a competitive mother as well.

Until next time, I hope you all stay warm in this cold weather.

Beautiful snow to start 2011!

It started snowing Sunday around 2 p.m. and didn't stop until early Monday morning! It was a beautiful site to wake up to! We got about 5 in. of snow, which is very unusual for this area!

Sam woke up with fever and was not able to go out to play, however we did let her go out for about 5 minutes.

Garrett and Rob played out in the snow ALL DAY LONG! I think Rob was more excited about playing in the snow and going to the levee to sled than Garrett was! They had a blast and get to continue playing in it today. I of course had to go back to work since the roads were fine.

These are a few shots from them playing around the house! Rob and Garrett got the four wheeler out and pulled the sled around the yard. They both enjoyed that! Garrett even got the chance to pull Rob on the sled and he was all smiles!!

Christmas, New Year and Adoption!

Sorry it has been a while since I posted. Lots going on.
Christmas was Great! The kids had a blast and got way too many gifts but they love everything they got!

Our Christmas is always busy and we pretty much stay in the road. We start Christmas Eve and the Perry house! We have early dinner at Annette's and spend as much time with the family as we can!

I was excited to get a picture of all the Perry kids together. This is the first one with them all. I hope that this will become a tradition each year. The kids will be grown and gone before we know it.

Stephanie, Brooke, Garrett, Allie, Blake, Sam and Bud

After we spent a few hours at Annette's, we had to head to Mimi's for our Christmas with the Garrett's.

The kids had a blast opening their gifts. It was so different this year for Sam because she knew exactly what was happening. She could not wait to open gifts. She had to show everyone each gift that she opened. It was so cute.

Garrett opened all his gifts, along with everyone else. We had one more surprise for him to see before we left Mimi's for the night.

He got a four wheeler for Christmas! He was so surprised and excited he could not say anything but WOW! He has been riding it as much as possible since then!

Santa came to the house and brought more gifts! Sam got her walking and talking baby and many more items from Santa. She also got a Jeep and immediately started riding it in the house!

Garrett got some new under armour and a PSP! He was very excited to get everything that he had asked for!

After we get up and see Santa, we have Christmas with Rob's mom, brother and my dad at our house! We have breakfast for everyone and open gifts once again! We squeeze all the chaos in as short of a time as we can! It's really not bad, we have gotten use to the running around.

Most of the family comes down to the house to see what the kids get from Santa! It's really a wonderful time for us all.

After we finished all the gifts, Sam was able to ride her jeep outside. Of course she had to take her new babies with her!

New Years was very low key for us. We stayed the night at home with the kids and mom playing games. We brought in the new year shooting fireworks!

So last week, we had a BIG day that we have been waiting a while for. Garrett is officially a CANON!!!! Rob has adopted him! That was a huge excitement for us all. Garrett is so happy to now be a Canon!
