Christmas was here: act one

Giggs with his new lil German made Schoenhut piano.
Tickle those ivories pal.

Claire and wig.
Claire and Jane are shocked that Santa Claus actually dressed their American girl dolls
and set them under the tree.

The boys unravel Christmas a-plenty.
Ollie discovers his new Bosch drill. A favorite.

While Claire unwraps her gift from Jane-a locket with both girls photos.
Princess Claire tries on her new handmade crown from Umi.

Jane dances around as the sugar-plumb princess.

I got a macbook pro from the charming Mr. Nielson, I am up in arms trying to figure her out. Now excuse me while Mr. Nielson and I snuggle up together and watch out Season 3 of Lost and the Bourne Ultimatum.

Stay tune for:
Christmas brunch.
Christmas Eve and
More Christmas day.

My Testimony of Christ.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you my devotion and love for my
Savior Jesus Christ. I have a testimony of Him.
I know He was born of lowly birth, living a life of service, miracles and love. I know my Heavenly Father sent His son Jesus Christ to suffer beyond what we can possibly recognize so we could find and have peace in this world and return to Him again. I know that the atoning sacrifice of our Savior and Redeemer was the greatest act in all history. I know He lives today and knows me personally.
I know young Joseph Smith saw God the father and His son Jesus Christ and restored the Gospel on earth today.
I know God still speaks to prophets today, and I know that that prophet is Gordon B. Hinckley.
I am blessed beyond words. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, overflowing with love and the assurance that
Jesus is the Christ, and He lives!
Love, Nie.

It feels like Christmas afterall.

A few weeks ago we had some rain. It rocked (i still say that, don't you?)
I turned up the jingle bell rock (not really) and we danced in the rain (really)
Then got in a hot tub (not all together)

I just thought these photographs were pretty cool with our spotlight.
(spotlighting the wreaths on the door-as good as we get for Christmas)
