Silly GOOSE!

As I was updating my blog Abigale decided she wanted to play in the box of my white elephant gift...
Here she is chilling with CosmoAnd showing off her nails to mommy!

New Happenings!

Well, I got to talk to my little brother Jacob on the phone on Christmas! I just love that boy so much! He is by far the closest sibling I have and I am so proud of him and the choices he is making in his life! This Christmas season has been so great! I got to talk to not only Jacob but Derrick and Shannon as well on Christmas and it was so good to hear from them! Shannon and Derrick are Spencers siblings on missions. Shannon is coming home May 28th and Derrick will be home in April of 2010. We are so proud of all of them!

On another note my sister Natalie just confirmed her pregnancy! I have thought that she was pregnant since the day I brought Lyla home from the hospital...but I wasn't sure! It is so exciting that there will be another Nielson grandchild in the family! She is due in late June! CONGRATS GUYS!

We are so thankful for our families and friends that we associate with! I never thought when I was younger that I would ever be as close to my family as I am now. I am so glad that they are so close and that our kids can share time together while they are young! I am also so thankful for my Father in Heaven that looks after my little family and for all the blessings we have. I don't know where I would be in life if I never realized how much my Father really loves me and wants the very best for me and my future. I am glad that I figured out my worth before it was to late. Heavenly Father loves us all and cannot wait to bless us if we just let him!


So, the Internet at our place is not working right now, so it has been a long time coming for an update! Sorry!

Abby's Birthday--Abigale had a ton of fun on her actual birthday. She kept asking for cake! Such a silly girl. Well, her aunt Alicia let Abby help make cookies and she just loved eating the dough.

Abigale went to her two year check up and did so well!! She is starting to like her pediatrician finally! She never likes getting weighed and measured so the nurse let her stand on the BIG GIRL scale and she just thought that was great! She weighs a whopping 21 pounds! What a chunk huh? She had to get two shots and when the nurse walked in with the tray she just started crying and saying ouchy, ouchy! Then while the nurse was giving her the shots she was crying and saying Thank You! What a nice girl!! She got an ice cream cone afterwards for being such a sweet girl at her appointment!

Here are the girls in their Christmas shirts! I was so mad cause I forgot my camera charger and so as soon as I turned it on it was like...low battery! So I only got this of them together!

PS...the girls hair looks red in this photo, but realize that it is the lamp they we sitting next to! Promise!

We got Abby a potty for her birthday and she used it for the first time yesterday! She went pee pee on the potty!! We are so PROUD of her! She is getting to be such a BIG GIRL! We are excited to start this new adventure in her life.

Party Pictures!

Last Saturday we celebrated Tori and Abby's Birthdays together at my sister in law Nikki's house and at Kangaroo Zoo in Pleasant Grove. I couldn't have asked for a better turn out to the whole was way fun for all of the kids, especially the Birthday GIRLS!!!

Here are the cakes I made for the girls, you can't really tell from the photo but one is pink with purple accents and one is purple with pink accents!
Time for PRESENTS!!

Now CAKE!!!
Kangaroo Zoo fun...

We didn't get many good shots at Kangaroo Zoo cause there was so much action going on...but the kids had a blast!

This was a really good place to have a birthday party, and we didn't even have to worry about the fact that it was snowing the whole time! THANK YOU so much to all of the family that came. Abby loved being around all of the people she loves! Thank you for the presents as well, she enjoys them everyday.

My funny bunny

Well here it is folks...

Abby is feeding the baby ABBY MILK. Too funny! I guess they learn alot more from examples than I could have ever imagined!


I cannot believe that Lyla is already 4 weeks old! It really feels like just yesterday that I had ABBY! Man, I was talking to Spence about it and these last 4 weeks have flown by! It must be because of the holiday season...

I can't help but dress Lyla up in all of the little outfits and get pictures before she gets too big to wear them!!

Gearing up for the Holidays...

Abby got to dress up as the Christmas tree a couple of nights ago, thanks to the boys of West Ridge Academy. We were checking out the lights to see which strands still worked and Abby was in the way...
She certainly enjoyed herself and wasn't too keen to take the lights off to go to bed...what a silly goose.

Holiday Card

Well, as you can see I have put my holiday card as my header for the blog! I love it! Thanks again to my GREAT cousin Amanda for taking the photos and putting the card together for me!

Thursday, December 4, 2008


Well, the holiday cards and birth announcements are out in the mail! I am glad cause I am usually known for now I don't have to worry about it anymore! I cannot believe how time flies with two kids running around! We are coming up on Abby's birthday party next weekend and then Christmas and New Years...WOW! The end of the year always flies by for me and now with a birthday in November and then one in December I am sure that the end of the year will always be hectic from here on out! Does anyone else feel this way?!
