A lot of Christmas pictures!

We had a fabulous Christmas and covered a lot of family, food, and gifts in 24 hrs time. I won't comment too much on each picture, but allow you a look inside our time together!! I hope Christmas blessed you all.

Where is Santa now?? We only checked this radar every 2 minutes!! Just too cute!

We even at dinner off the fancy Christmas china and that table called the Dining Room table....thanks mom for fixing that up for us!!

And, then there was the "Happy Birthday Jesus" cake!

MOM! These candles won't light!!

And, there was a note for Santa himself.....and he had to sign it before he left!

And, then we had to get Santa's cookies just right!

Opening ONE gift before they went to bed....

Thank ya....thank ya very much! GOOD-NIGHT! Christmas morning awaits.....


Don't worry, this is not all for my kids. This is at grandparents house and there are 5 grandchildren. Still alot though!

Dylan's favorite gift of all....a PSP.

Tyler's favorite gift...a scooter thingy that is motorized

Clay's favorite gift are tickets to a Memphis Tiger basketball game....

Come on mom! Please not a picture!

There was a lot of coke drank by my kids these last few days and a lot of PSP playing too. It was a BIG technology Christmas for them and we all might need our stomachs pumped tomorrow.

The Thomas kids and their cousins hope your Christmas was full of fun and cheer.
And, may the new year be filled with God's love in your hearts and homes.

Love the "radar" picture. My girls and husband did the same thing. Emma prayed that Santa would be safe and that he would have good weather. It was precious.

Thanks for sharing your family with us!

We also checked the radar every hour or so. That Santa sure does get around very quickly (although he spent alot of time at the space station if you ask me). Looks like you had a fun time. Our den is so packed with toys we cant walk in it! I need the "take the decorations down" fairy to visit my house too.

Be still my U.T. Vols heart, is that an Arkansas t-shirt? Surely my eyes are deceiving me?!! LOL

I loved your family pictures and the birthday cake was beautiful!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas and my parents left today and I am cleaning the house this afternoon. I may never get all the 500 leads of laundry finished before my company arrives for New years Eve.

Happy New year!!!

It looks like you had a great Christmas with your family! I, for one, can't believe it has already come and gone! Yikes! My how the time flies! I hope you have a wonderful New Year! And Go Hogs!!!

Did you know we live close to Norad, where the Santa cam comes from? We watched it a lot, too!

Our Kylie asked for a reindeer (a live one!), but Santa left a stuffed one that plays Grandma got run over by a reindeer and a note explaining :)

Your family is beautiful! Praying God;s richest blessings over you all!

Kelly said...

I agree with Hillary - the best part is the razorback shirt!

I've looked at your pictures several times this week and each time I get distracted before I get to leave you a comment. What a beautiful family you have--I know boys don't like to be called beautiful, but yours indeed are--or most handsome. What sweet memories you have made for each of them. Treasure these moments as they go by so quickly. Thanks for sharing your life on this blog. Many of us are most blessed.

Hope you have recovered from it all!

Happy New Year!
