Christmas in Utah 2010

Making gingerbread cookies for Santa
We had a great trip out to Utah for Christmas with my family. We spent a few days at my parents house in Draper with John. On Christmas Eve we read from the Bible about Jesus' birth and sang some carols. Luke enlightened Papa and Nana (Grandmother) with his in-depth knowledge of the different meanings of Christmas representation. On Christmas morning the kids had the usual torture of having to line up and wait to come out to the Christmas tree and see what Santa had brought. We spent a lot of hours opening gifts one by one. Everyone was so happy and I even got surprised with a new Ipod touch. Scott and I had decided to not get gifts for eachother this year, but he made my day with that. I did get him some candy that he loves and some new phones for our house, but he really outdid me. He's sweet like that. The day continued with Nathan and Jen and kids coming up for dinner and more gift exchanging. We had a great time and I loved being with all the family.

I'm so lucky to be a Perriton! You come from a wonderful family. Your parents and siblings all are amazing. I am so happy you all were able to be together. I can't imagine how wonderful that was.
