Weekend Shot: Dear Santa

(c)JerseyStyle Photography_Dear Santa_121414_0006

As we get older, it’s harder to find the magic in the Christmastime season.

Ugly news, pressing deadlines, general inhospitality by our fellow man.

Enough to stain a man’s soul dark and forget the fun of it all.

But, luckily, having children allows the light to seep back in. Friday afternoon, I had my staff’s holiday party at Peddler’s Village in Lahaska, PA. They do a really nice lighting display. After the lunch, my family met me there to check it out.

Saturday evening, we did a driving tour of a 12 station outdoor live Nativity scene (popular place, that. Waited in line for an hour).

Then, Sunday, me and the kids went to the Cherry Hill (NJ) Discovery Museum to kill the afternoon. Didn’t know it, but Santa was on premises. And the kids got the chance to fire off one more missive to the big guy in red.

Chase, my middle guy at 4, loves the whole visual aspect of Christmas. He had been talking about Christmas decorations since July.

Olivia, my oldest at 7, though, is full on into the Santa aspect. She understands the while Baby Jesus part, of course, but at 7, it’s the gifts that hold the appeal.

She IS making a concerted effort to be good, not fight with her brothers, obey Mom & Dad. And, any chance she gets, she’s reinforcing what what hopes the outcome to be come December 25.

A roller copter, though…I don’t know…
