Santa Claus come to AZ


Saturday was an amazing day.  Santa Claus came to town for HOPE KIDS again!  There was so much love in the room as the kiddos, their siblings and parents enjoyed visiting with Santa and Mrs. Claus over some chocolate chip cookies and milk.   Each kiddo left with a copy of Wylder’s books (“Warrior Baby” and “Little Wish”) and photos with Santa.

Sometimes pictures are simply worth a thousand words.  Merry Christmas Hope Kids, we love you. With love and hope always, Wylder James …


The season is alive and well.  Believe in the magic this holiday.

Thank you to Pogue Photography for capturing these magical moments for the families and thank you Lons at the Hermosa for once again letting us use your beautiful property to host this event.  Santa, YOU ROCK!! To our family and friends who joined us in this celebration, we love you!


Wylder James we love and miss you this holiday more than ever.  Thank you for showing us the way and reminding us that giving is so much better than receiving this time of year.  We will see you in our dreams little one.  Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.  xoxo
