Christmas In The City

 Last night Mr. Nielson and I packed everyone in the car and drove to
the colorful and busy Salt Lake City to have our family Christmas photos taken.
We've been taking photos each year with Tyler and Wendy (Blue Lily) since 2008.  
They're practically family!
Anyway, our shoot was a snazzy one with sequins and fur.  
After we took photos in the cold, my little family wandered around the city 
admiring the gorgeous sparkly lights and occasional snow flurries.
We stopped and had dinner with hot chocolate, plus two cups extra;
one to give to a city performer on the street,
and one to a police woman protecting the streets--
both much deserving of some Christmas cheer.
Tonight as we knelt down and prayed together we 
thanked God for our warm beds, good food, the gospel of 
Jesus Christ, our health, good friends, our safe neighborhood, 
our freedom, and the traditions and memories we are making each day together.

What we did:
We prayed for several people in our lives like
our family, friends, church leaders, strangers, and government leaders.
I believe in the power of prayer.
