Christmas at the Perrys

Christmas was SUCH a fun time in our home. We were all together for the first time in two years. It was SO fun! At first it felt a little weird adjusting back to being with each other, but it didn't take long to get back in the swing of things. Our home this break was filled with music, laughter, singing around the piano (Bryan's back!), a birthday, games, a family party, fun movies, snuggling, delicious food, flexing, good conversations, and dancing. It was absolute bliss. Now that I'm back at school and the family is back into the swing of their normal routines, work, school, church callings, sports, etc, I think we all crave those times with each other again.

Bryan and Grandma Perry making her famous biscuits.

Grant's 15th birthday! This is the stocking Grant was brought home in when he was a baby.

Flexing is a big deal in our family. With the three boys at home, it happens all the time.

Celebrating G's birthday. The single candle represented a 1 and the 5 was..a five. (15 years old..)

A classic Perry holiday dinner: delicious food, a beautiful table setting, and conversations.

Oh hey good-looking...(s)

I found the Christmas pickle again...(I'm the reigning champ)This little pickle ornament was given to us by our really good friends the Clarks. Apparently it is a German tradition for the parents to hide the Christmas pickle on the Christmas tree for the kids to find. Because it is green and small, it's real hard to find. The child who finds the pickle gets to open the first Christmas present. Then the child right under that one (age-wise) gets to open the next one and so on. Hence Bryan's sad face.

This is a family favorite. We love DAD!

Grandma Tanner came for the boys Court of Honor. It was so fun have her with us for those couple of days.
