A Wonderful Christmas!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! We sure did! My family came over and we ate, listened to Christmas music, and opened presents it was alot of fun!

Santa brought Chase just what he wanted, Guitar Hero world tour, or should I have said just what DAD wanted... ;) It looks like Santa liked Melissa's peanut butter balls, yum yum. For you dish ladies, I know the spring plate does not go with the Christmas plate, just grabbed something... lol!
Chase had a few questions for Santa, you can click to enlarge it to read what he wrote. It was so funny!

Here he is EARY Christmas morning. I think I was still asleep when I took this picture. He was so excited and hardly slept at all on Christmas eve. Neither did I! lol.

We are just about ready to open presents! Dad is on the left, then mom, and hubby Kevin. Chase is anxiously waiting! We are just about ready to start the frenzy........

That took a while to clean up!

This is my brother Daniel, and his wife Liberty after we ate a late lunch and were stuffed!

Liberty made this for my mom out of cardstock. Mom is really into butterflies because they symbolize that we are a new creation in Christ. Wow! Look how good it looks with my curtains. LOL! Hmmm......

In the midst of the Christmas frenzy we all remembered what Christmas is all about. I hope you all did too.

I have family coming in from Kentucky next week so we get to celebrate again. Oh, and I did get a new digital camera, so maybe I will have clearer pictures. Happy New Year!!

Hi Kristen...It looks like you had a great Christmas! I loved Chase's letter to Santa. He asked some really thoughtful questions. Santa's reply was excellent, I might add! Happy New Year!...Debbie

Hey Kristen, How adorable was that Santa letter (that is one to keep and frame)...btw, what school does chase go to? Hannah my 10 year old goes to Central and Alyssah my 8 year old goes to Parkview, they both attended Parkview last year. Anyway, Shopping was fun yesterday but you were right on busy, when we went to central mall yesterday, you would have thought they were giving things away free by how many people were there. Your house looks lovely and it looks like you and your family had a wonderful time. Happy Holidays from my house to yours. Jennifer

Kristen I LOL!! when I read Chase's letter! How "just like a boy" to ask how fast the sled was traveling!! And asking for an elf was a darn good request!Haha!! Looks like a wonderful time was had by all! And Liberty's gift to your mom was beautiful! Vanna

tam said...

Cute letter-tugs at the heart strings! I am glad you and your family had such a wonderful Christmas day! Your mom is quite the artist-loved that gift and the meaning behind it too!
Happy New Year Blogger Buddy!

QtPiE said...

Yeah I think we do, do you remeber that we met at the festival downtown? I think you were with your mom was it...anyway I don't know what Italian resturant your talking about...but I love Italian food. Have you gone to Joe's in Fort Smith yet? It is another Italian rest. that is relatively new, it is pretty good. Speaking of motorcycles, if you like to go on rides with your husband (I do too) we should go on a ride together sometime, well atleast when it is not so cold and nasty like the weather we had today, crazy how the weather is here you like coffee?

Linda said...

Thank you Kristen for sharing with us, you have a lovely family. Chase's letter, adorable! I miss the days when my son was young like that. Enjoy, they grow up so fast. Blessings! Linda
Always enjoy your wonderful blog.
And I am like you, DH Santa got me a new digital Santa, so my photos should improve!
