Holiday Weekend

This was an exceptional weekend and felt like it officially marked the beginning of our holiday season.

On Saturday, we went to the annual Parade of Lights with our friends.  The cold front had firmly moved in earlier in the day and it was COLD for the evening parade.  This year, we were better prepared and dressed to withstand the weather.  This year, it seemed like the parade was bigger than last year -- from start to finish, we enjoyed more than an hour of parade entertainment.  AND the floats were very generous with their candy distributions.  Very.  All-in-all, we had a great time!!  We know how lucky we are to have friends that will brave the frigid temps just to help us enjoy the holidays.

On Sunday, we awoke to a text message from Josh telling us that Emily's water had broke overnight an that they were at the hospital today.  We ran a couple of errands in the morning before lunch and then came home and started assembling our Christmas tree.  When Ledger woke up from his nap, he was really excited  to see the "lights" on the tree and wanted to help put it together.

Kinley Josephine Perkins was finally born at 4:30 in the afternoon on 11/20/2011.  We are so excited to welcome our first niece and look forward to getting to meet her in person later this week.  Once we get more photos, I will post pictures of her!
