Happy Holidays

18 Dec


In the interest of saving time, stress, money, and maybe a tree or two, we don’t send holiday cards, so, hopefully, you can consider this your holiday greeting instead!  Last week, we took Jenna to our local Farmer’s Market, and they had sleigh rides with Santa.  Jenna talked about it with excitement and anticipation for a week before we went, but we weren’t too sure how she’d react when she actually met Santa in real life.  We shouldn’t have worried.  He was instantly her best friend.  She snuggled right up to him (as we tried to block thoughts of possible previous felonies or misdemeanors from our minds), looked at him with adoration and told him exactly what she wants this year:

“A blue pony – a REAL pony that I can ride – with a carriage or a cart.”

C’mon Santa.  This one’s all yours.  Don’t let us down.  We’re counting on you.

    That is too cute. What a wonderful photo! Thanks so much for sharing this precious memory with us.

    On a side note, if “this” Santa takes care of it I am so coming to your neck of the woods next year to put my request in ;O)

    Ha! I love it! That picture is precious…even if Santa looks like he’s been sipping on a a flask of whiskey that he’s got tucked under his belt.

    Hi. This is my first post on your blog. Beautiful butterfly. Great Santa picture.

    I’ve always been late on Holiday cards…I’m thinking I should just stop trying and save some trees in the process too….and the stress of trying to get them out!

    Have a great week.
