Prayers Requested

Get well soon Nie Nie and Mr. Nielson!

Hey Nie Readers,

c jane (Nie's sister) here; as some of you might have heard, Stephanie (Nie) and Christian were in a private airplane crash on Saturday evening. They are both being treated for serious injuries locally. The doctors told us that we are in for months of recovery.

Thank you for thinking of Nie and Christian's family at this time. As you know, Stephanie's faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ is strong. We know that he has a plan for each of us, loves us, and will bless Stephanie, Christian, and their family in the coming months.

Much love,
c jane

A map to the skies

I knew one day Mr. Nielson's old flying maps would come in handy. 
Today I hung them over Nicholas' crib.
I think the colors of the map are really cool.
I bet as Mr. Nielson continues to fly, 
we will have a bunch more maps to add to the collection.
Speaking of flying, on my last visit to the ranch a few weeks ago,
I went to the village's gas station and browsed the leather footwear. 
While there I fell in love with some awesome moccasins, and now I want them.
Mr. Nielson promised me he would fly me back to the ranch to buy them for me.
So this weekend I guess I'm going flying!

The bell is ringing...again

I prepared a feast for the family to honor the girls 
as they prepared to start a new school year.

Baby white roses decorate the dinner table. 
 Honey-seared salmon smoked in alder wood (prepared by Mr. Nielson), 
garden-picked beets, brown jasmine rice, 
broccoli rabe, and the 2008-09 family theme.

Crowns were made to honor the girls.
I made a classic chocolate cake with delicious 
chocolate butter-cream frosting for dessert.
Toasts were made, stories told, goals planned, and the girls 
walked the catwalk showing off the new school duds in a family fashion show.

It was hot. Real hot. Claire wore tights.
 Jane wore long pants and a sweater-type top.
Both came home with red faces and sweat dripping down.
Fashion over comfort, ladies!
