Act 1 Christmas beginnings

I am back.
Christmas is over, and it is time for my report.
Christmas in Utah was as magical just as it was when I was little.
My Mother decorated my old room for the girls. Christmas Madame Alexander dolls filled the built in shelves of my mothers cape cod home on
Fir Avenue along with authentic Norwegian trolls that my dad brought home with him from his mission years ago.
In the corner near the window sat a darling little pine tree lit up, and the bed was covered in cozy red flannel and red candy cane striped pillow cases and I can guarantee you the girls did in fact did have sugarplums dance in their heads.
The whole house was beautiful.
My dad made a fire every night that we were there and Christian made us vanilla soy peppermint hot chocolate.
My favorite night was late one evening after Christian and I put the children to bed we got in the hot tub then after, we lay in bed watching the snow fall quietly out of the pink sky.
I will never forget that...Ever.

Oliver got a Ricky Carmichael motorcycle. He really loves it.
Santa Claus left the girls beach cruisers. Claire got a white one and Jane pink. No training wheels for Christians little girls. He is bound and determined to teach them to ride without...good luck honey!
Oliver got this silver bullet cruiser, that he likes to tell others not to touch, look at or ride-he on the other hand wont lay a finger on it.

Nicholas is seen here trying it out.
This is Christian just about to kiss me after he opened his fav present...a watch with barometric proportions (to assist him when he begins his pilots license)

OH there is more, lots more to come...this is just ACT 1 of the Nielson Christmas!
