Utah has had unseasonably warm weather and
I've sent the little Nies to school without jackets-- which is very unusual.
It's weird and feels like I am living in Arizona again.
But looking at our weather forecast,
it looks like our winter weather is on its way!
Yay! I am SO ready!
My brother Jesse and I have decided to both host Thanksgiving dinner
and split our family up between our homes.
(To keep the chaos down, remember I come from a family of nine!).
It's been really fun preparing my
dinner and dessert menu.
I picked out the most gorgeous light fixtures to go over my
dining room table, and they came just in time for our Thanksgiving dinner!
Mr. Nielson spent the weekend installing and adjusting them
(I will post about them soon).
Cotopaxi sent me one of their newest sweaters.
Let me just say this is no ordinary sweater.
I love it for so many reasons. First, it has a fabulous tailored fit,
which feels and looks nice. I love the mesh back and the soft wool.
Also, it's unisex and will look equally good on you as your significant other.
Remember, I said: probably.
Also, over the weekend, my brother Jesse bought our hot tub
and on Saturday morning, I awoke to the voices of several of my brothers
(and others), moving all 850 pounds of it from our backyard
to one of the 50 trucks in my driveway.
I had to film/photograph it.
And just for the record, I didn't hear one swear word in the commotion.
And lastly, our Sabbath day was beautiful!
It should be noted that the primary program was held today in church.
The Primary Program is when all the children ages 3-12 in the congregation
prepare, sing, and speak the entire meeting.
It's incredible listening to the four-year-olds
share their experiences and love
for Jesus in the loud microphone. Wowza!
My kids were adorable (Lottie waved hysterically to me
from the choir seats the entire meeting),
and my boys confidently sang. I was proud.
Sundays are my favorite days of the week because the day is packed
with God, family, reflection, peace, rest, quiet, and home.
Sundays give me hope for Monday and the days that follow.
Now get your MONDAY on.
