Trunk or Treat

Last night was Trunk or Treat at our church. Peyton was very excited about going so that he could put his costume on. This year I gave him two things to pick from and he choose to be a brown bear. He was very cute I must say! There were lots of people that showed up. This year Peyton did a few games and had a great time. We also went on a hay ride which was a first for him. He thought that was a blast!! We even saw a few of his friends from school. It was not easy taking pictures as he was not still for very long at all. lol!

Spending an afternoon with Thomas the Train

Today we went down to Rusk, Tx to the Texas State Railroad. They had Thomas the Train there visiting their depot. Peyton really likes trains right now. We spend lots of time playing with all of our trains here at home. When I heard about Thomas being in Rusk I just knew I had to take Peyton. He had a great time. They had lots of activities there at the depot and we got to take a 30 minute ride on the train. It was great. Peyton even had his special hat to wear too. My Parents went with Peyton and I. There were lots of people also enjoying the day with us. The weather was beautiful! Here are some of the pictures that we took.

Healing Well

Peyton is doing well after his eye surgery. His little eyes are getting let red everyday. I can already tell a difference when he looks at things. He no longer has to turn and tilt his head to see things well. We went back to see the doctor on Monday and he said everything looked good and he did not need to see us again for three months unless there was a problem.
Peyton has a big weekend coming up. Saturday morning we are going to the walk for the down syndrome group with some of our sweet friends. Then later that afternoon we are going to see Thomas the Train down in Rusk. Peyton is very excited! We will get to go on a 30 minute ride and they have lots of activities for us to do as well. Sunday our church is having its big Fall Fest so Peyton will get to wear his costume and go play some of the games. I will post pictures of all of adventures soon.

Eye Surgery Today

Hello to all of our followers. Sorry I have not updated in almost two weeks. We have had a very hard and busy few weeks. Andy's sister passed away tragically so we were not home much of last week. Thank you to all of you that have been praying for our family.
Peyton continues to do very well. He is eating and drinking very well most of the time these days. He is still a very busy little boy during the week. He is going somewhere four days a week. Today Peyton had eye surgery over in Tyler. We had to be there at 7:15 this morning which means we had to leave the house at 6. Peyton who loves to sleep was wide awake at 5:30 this morning all on his very own. This was very strange as he usually does not get up until around 9. We were all shocked! I am hoping that was just a one time deal as I do like my sleep too. lol. Surgery went very well. It took about an hour and a half and he the Dr. Hunter said everything looked good. He worked on eight of his eye mussels (four on each eye) today. Now my little boy has blood shot eyes for a few days. We were able to come home around noon and we have just been lounging around this afternoon. I think that is what we will be doing most of the weekend. Those are my kind of weekends.

Trip to Kansas City to see Jeff Gordon

Our last two weekends have been filled with fun! Last weekend Neal McCoy this weekend Jeff Gordon. Andy is a huge Jeff Gordon fan and is a member of his fan club. He entered to win a chance to meet Jeff and won so this weekend we packed up the car and made a fast trip to Kansas City, Kansas. Peyton did great for the ride. We left Friday and drove to Tulsa to spend the night. Yesterday we got up and drove to Kansas. We were there from 12 till about 6:30 then we headed back to Tulsa to spend the night. Tulsa was about halfway. Peyton of course had a great time while we were there. He now has some new "girl friends" that we met that work with Jeff Gordon. We did a lot of walking the halls and around the hotel lobby during the event which Peyton called "Having a party". He made lots of people laugh. Here are some of the pictures that we took while we were there.
