Fall in Utah is really amazing. Really, really amazing.
We've had some of the most gorgeous autumn days;
sun shinning, cooler temperatures, and crystal blue skies.
Each morning when I get up to hike, I am amazed at the valley down below me.
The best word to describe it is: golden.
let them grow one more inch, I wish I could halt time and
have a few more weeks of October.
The colors, smells, sights, and sounds. It's perfect.
I picked up the Little Nies from school and I drove to the bakery
where we each picked out a Halloween treat,
(sugar cookie bats, witches, ghosts, and pumpkin donuts)
I drove to the park where we sat under a giant yellow honeylocust tree.
We lay under it admiring the the leaves glittering down on
us as the wind gently blew.
It would have bottled up that golden moment and
wished for it to last at least an hour longer.
Tomorrow my Claire Elizabeth will turn FIFTEEN!!!
I plan to her drive past the 100 year old home
Mr. Nielson and I carefully brought her home to from the hospital
(in a orange onesie with a Halloween ghost on it).
Speaking of Mr. Nielson, he is coming home today
from a week long ranch trip.
It will be a most wonderful weekend for sure.
