Weekend plans/NieNies WeeNies

{photo by Jed Wells}

Happy Friday!
I have so much to do this weekend.
We are blessing our baby girl Charlotte on Sunday.
I am preparing a celebration party at my home following.
This baby girl is our miracle and this day will be very special.
Charlotte will wear the blessing dress my Nana Aurora made for my sister Page.
Since Page, Courtney, me, and sister Lucy have been blessed in the same dress.
Since Lucy, all of Page's five girls {Olivia, Emma, Cynthia, Mery, and Vivian}
Courtney's Ever, Lucy's Besty,
my Claire and Jane, and now Charlotte.
It has quite the legacy.
Boss and St. Mary Nielson are coming as well, hopefully they bring the
Arizona temperatures with them.

Tonight, we planned to watch "Nacho Libre" with the children,
for the 100th time. That movie is the best movie ever.
Have a great weekend.

{Big News, Steven, I had another can we fit her in??}

Attention you East Coast-ers.
My talented friend Steven Waggoner painted my children
in a darling series called NieNies WeeNies.
This painting is beautiful and pretty amazing if I do say so myself.
It has been on display in his studio downtown Provo,
however recently has been on display in
New York City where it was accepted in
