Dear Santa
by Karla ° Saturday, October 17, 2009
This morning Nate opened the curtain in our family room, looked outside and up at the sky and out of totally nowhere began a very comprehensive dissertation to “Santa” about all the toys he wants. It was quite endearing actually, watching him stare wistfully out of the window wide-eyed and speaking animatedly to a mythical man about red cars and blue crayons.

And once he was finished discussing his list of wants to a jolly person in a sartorial nightmare of a red suit somewhere outside our window he was all, “Now go get all the toys for me RIGHT NOW Santa!”


Here are a few pics from our morning walk through a gorgeous conservation area we just discovered that is less than a five minute drive from our home.

Mark and I ambled deep into the wooded paths of this Conservation park, two adults embracing hands and clutching warm coffees with our free hands while Nate, a tambourine of laughter and innocence pointed out collapsed trees and shared "beautiful" fallen leaves with us as we propelled rocks into meandering stream and threw massive piles of leaves above our heads, watching them flutter and fall to the ground below.

Clearly, so much fresh air and exercise has its consequences.

It's called the best afternoon nap EVER.

I was not even aware of it until this morning Neil. I'm still in the market for an effing pumpkin.
