Christmas with Mama Chris

We stayed the night with Mama Chris, Clint's mom, on Saturday evening and were able to spend some time with her.  We ordered pizza, watched "Up" and relaxed in the hot tub.  On Sunday we all got up and headed to Amarillo to celebrate Christmas with Clint's brother's family.  The boys received pajamas, clothes, books and a Squirmie, which included a personalized letter from Santa.

Mama Chris, Hallie, Hayden, Kade & Layton

It's so hard to get a good family picture of everyone, especially when you have several cameras to look at!

Layton in his Scooby Doo Pajamas (he has told me each night that he LOVES his pjs), both Squirmies (Limey and Tiger) and Kade reading his letter from Santa.

Limey-belongs to Layton
Tiger-belongs to Kade

Kade's letter from Santa.  We will treasure these always and are so lucky that Mama Chris is good friends with Santa.


  1. I love the letter from Santa idea... we might have to do that this year! Amen on family pictures... so hard! Merry Christmas!

  2. Good times! Our kids receive a personalized letter in the mail from Santa with reindeer food each year~we will have to tell the elves to mail Kade and Layton one next year!
