New Years Day-Perk Party

One New Years day we had what I'd like to call a 'Perk Party'...

My WHOLE family hasn't been together in Years! We are spread out through Hong Kong, Idaho, Atlanta, New Mexico...ALL over-so you can imagine why it's almost near impossible to get everyone in the same room at the same time.

Well, a few months back my Aunt sent an email out to everyone with a plan, a great plan, A PERK PARTY...we knew the day in advance, and low and behold we were all going to make it!

And we did!!

My grandma stayed in the 'same' hotel as we did (we made sure to hide and watch for her anytime we left the room) as we all gathered in this room to surprise our Perk she we getting ready to head down to meet my uncle for what she thought was 'lunch'.

My Aunt and Uncle opened these doors and here was her reaction...
PRICELESS...

Dad Perk, her dad, would always give her white roses...so those quickly became her favorites...we had a white rose for every person in the room to give her one at a time (with a hug of course)...


Below is a picture of the whole family...

And because it wouldn't be right without our normal 'goofy' picture here it is below!


And here is just the grandkids with their spouses.


It was beyond amazing seeing the joy and excitement in Perks face, not to mention everyone else as well! Plus I got to see some family who I haven't seen in a while which is always nice!! So to say the least, our first day of 2011 was absolutely amazing, would not have wanted to spend it any other way!!! :)

What a special moment for your grandmother. Glad the whole family was able to get together! Sounds like you really had a great New Years. Praying it was the start of a great year for you & Zach.

Such a sweet idea surprising her and giving her the white roses. What a close-knit family!
