Weekend plans and big photos of my children

Yay! It's the blessed weekend!
This is also going to be the last weekend until school is out.
I can't believe school is coming to an end.
Next year Claire will be in 5th grade,

Jane in 4th,
Oliver in 2nd,

and Nicholas will be in Kindergarten.

Pretty crazy for me to even think about.
Good thing baby Lottie will keep me busy at home.
I can't imagine a day alone at home without another little body wandering
(or laying) around.

Tonight, Mr. Nielson is packing up the Scout-mobile and headed camping with the boys scouts.
I will carry on without him around. I still hate sleeping alone. Not a fan.

These next few weeks are super busy around here.
Mr. Nielson and I are flying to Phoenix for a few days, school gets out,
we are blessing Charlotte in church, and then headed to Texas around the
beginning of June.
(more info about that later).

Did I mention I am having stomach aches...

As I type this, Charlotte is asleep in the stroller.
I took her for a walk and she fell asleep. I couldn't bare take her out she
looked to happy and peaceful outside in the beautiful evening air, so
I left her there sound asleep and came in the house to make dinner.
(or blog...)
The Russian Olive trees outside smell too good to be true,
and the weather is more than ideal.
Dr. J. and his assistant Marissa did a house call this afternoon.
Dr. J is so great. He is so kind and caring...definitely a keeper there.

All I can think about it how blessed I am, how happy I feel,
and how grateful I am to be alive, to have a family, to know and feel God's love.

So tonight is movie night, what shall we watch? Any suggestions?.....

**As I mentioned we are blessing Charlotte in a few weeks.**
For the celebration, I decided to shop for a new dress.
One of my favorite places to dress shop is Shabby Apple.
Holy cow, there are a billion dresses (and skirts) to choose from.
I'm having a hard time deciding, but have decided to go with this dress.

"like" them along with a comment about your thoughts on their new
"Twin Palms" line, you could win this beautiful dress
