Here are some pictures from Virginia.

First is an adorable couple of owl cupcakes made by Emma.

Next we have dinner at the mission home with President and a couple of the Elders.

Trip to Monticello during Esther's visit. Here's Eliza and Emma.

In the spirit of Halloween, Esther and Joseph stayed up late to prank the family. Visions of gruesome proportions were found in the spice cupboard and the kitchen fridge.

It's amazing what a cheap batch of googly eyes, ketchup and red food coloring can do to condiments.

More adorable cupcakes from Emma!

Sister Perry and the other sister missionaries.

Learning to hula apparently.



And more scrumptious cupcakes by Emma! Way to go girl!


  1. I had no idea Emma was so into cupcakes. I may have to come back up and teach her how to make cakepops!

  2. Thank you so much for blogging about Pres. & Sis. Perry. My son "Elder" Nicholas D. Richards is in the MTC right now and will be headed to Virginia on 12 Jan. 2011.

    It's very comforting and FUN to see and learn about the people that will be interacting with my son for the next 2 years. Elder Richards is a bit older than the regular 19 year old; but I believe he will be a good missionary.

    I look forward to reading more about the mission and Virginia. God Bless and send my Best Regards and Support to Pres. Perry and his lovely wife Sara. We are certainly excited for Nicholas to be serving there. From the minute he opened his call and read "Virginia Richmond Mission" we have had a witness from the Holy Ghost that Nick is to be there.
