Trick of Treat

A little late, but here is a pic of Camden, Nadia, Carson and Sonia before we went trick-or-treating on Halloween night.

Happy Halloween!!

I'm not saying that these photos represent the average behavior of our girls, but look at the tenderness that Nadia is using to hold up her pumpkin. Then 15 minutes and one Bic pen later, notice how Sonia committed apparent pumpkincide on the poor fellow. That's at least eight stab wounds...and that's only the front!

Happy Halloween!

Best Friends?

Sometimes Sonia can't get Nadia to play with her...but Roxy will always put up with her.

1st Day

So Nadia started up at her pre-school again. She attends three days a week and even gets to take lunch with her this year. Here is a year over year ('10/'09)comparison of the OEMFDOSS (pronounced aumph-doss) aka Obligatory Early Morning First Day Of School Shot

As you can see, some things change (height & weight), some things stay the same (PINK! & Crazy Basket!)

Inbounding, originally uploaded by bokehjose.

Notice Nadia's technique as she inbounds the ball. Next time we'll try to get her to actually toss it in to one of her teammates. ;)

Congratulations Team!

Post-Walk Celebration with Team Sesenta for Lijs after their 60 mile trek through Minneapolis and St.Paul. (Starting Left: Michelle Gezo, Geraldine Perez, Tatum Perez, Hans Meijer) I can't tell you how proud of them I am of them for participating in this event. They encountered blisters, heat rash, achy feet and 90 degree heat, but made it all the way through! The team raised over $17,500!! They all said that it was the toughest thing they've ever had to do, but what a way to bring awareness and fund-raising for this horrible disease. By the way, the signs are courtesy of Alexia and Lia (Hans' wife and daughter), Nadia and Sonia.

Let's Go Team!

Here is a pic of Team Sesenta For Lijs at the end of day one of the 3-Day Walk for the Cure. It has been a rough go for them, but I can't tell you how awesome they have all done. Their feet are all battered and bruised, and according to Tatum it has been the "most mentally and physically challenging thing she's ever done." But they are almost done. Tomorrow at 4:00pm they will have completed their 60th mile. They are definitely walking for a purpose and have raised almost $17,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I'm so proud of Geraldine for coordinating and leading the team, and of her teammates Tatum, Hans and Michelle.

Mid Life Crisis

Since I'm almost in my mid 30's I decided to go out and get some new wheels. I know...pretty sweet.

Last weekend the Prather boys came over to give their parents some needed R&R time. The girls absolutely loved having them over as they enjoyed lots of playing, sleeping on the floor and some early morning donuts.

I want Mami's Drink!

Friday Night Date

Tatum and I generally look forward to Friday nights as our date night. Sometimes that means relaxing at home, sometimes it means dinner and a movie (By the way, Inception.. was... awesome!) But we aren't the only ones to look forward to date night. Nadia and Sonia get quite a few "date nights" with Nana and Papaw. They always look forward to it because they get to do new and crazy stuff, like jumping on a mini trampoline (hello 80's exercise craze) or watching the latest and greatest Disney movie. Anyways, we all are grateful here at the Perez Household for these date nights. I like to think that it helps us keep our sanity. Here are a couple pics courtesy of Mike from the last time the girls spent the night in Kokomo.

Family Time

She Did It Again!

My wife never ceases to amaze me. She works, takes care of three kids (me included) and a dog, always has the house clean enough for a Presidential visit and still finds me funny...sometimes. On top of all this she has been training for a sprint triathlon, her second. Well, she competed in the Eagle Creek Sprint Tri over the weekend and managed to place second on her age group. Awesome! Pretty amazing considering I was spent just from lugging the girls and my backpack around while Tatum competed. There is no video this time around (I completely forgot) but I did manage to get some pics. One day maybe I'll join did look pretty fun.

What the...

I had a dream (nightmare?) the other night in that the above was reality. I just had to recreate it and share it. You know kind of gives me the chills. Anybody ever see "The Shining?"

Strolling on the Monon Trail last weekend with Tatum's fam. The girls thought that the fake cop was a riot!
