Proc Week day 2

"Wholesome recreational activities"




Proc Week day 1

I am proud to present Nie's "Proc Week".
Each day for a week I am taking a part of the beautifully written 'The family: A Proclamation to the World' that President
Gordon B. Hinckley read in September of '95.
This proclamation has shaped my little family and has inspired Mr. Nielson and I to be better parents to our four children, and beyond. I am pleased and honored to follow and observe this proclamation and teach it to my own children.

~Day 1~
Mr. Nielson and I decided that Mitt Romney is the choice for President for 'o8. He has been heard to have said this:
"'The work that goes on within the walls of a home is the most important work that is ever done in America. ... And if we want to strengthen America, we need to strengthen the American family.'
"Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney...establishing marriage as being between a man and a woman.'
So we had a party celebrating Mitt
and invited family and friends to join.
It was our civic duty!

out front of our house to welcome guests]

Bookshelve Miracle

Bookshelve Miracle part 2

I bought this cute little pink bookshelf at the local flea market for $.3.50.
Using the retro paper I covered the back shelves
Even if the books are all pulled off the shelves, it still looks nice-until I get annoyed and make my girls pick all the books up, because it doesn't look THAT nice.

Lovers kissies

Rendezvous at the Ranch.

Did you know Mr. Nielson and I went to
New Mexico over the weekend?
We went to the Nielson ranch where
Mr. Nielson put on his
boots and levi jacket and played rancher.
I read magazines and got in some delicious runs
around the sprawling 9000 acres.
It was altogether bliss.
It thundered and rained and can
I tell you how good that smells?

My hero!

Claire and Jane dressed themselves up and turned into

brave girl-hero's.

Claire drew a special watch on her hand

And then she drew special red dots that spell "RIC" on their headbands.
I don't know why it says "RIC" but that's beside the point.
The point is, my girls are really darling as girl-hero's.
