Just the two of us.

This weekend all four older Nies plus Mr. Nielson went on
 a camping trip to the Outer Banks.
The weather was nice, the water lovely, but the mosquito's were
devastating, especially for Nicholas who came home from the trip looking like
he had the chicken pox.
At The White House Lottie and I had the 
whole weekend planned, in fact she 
made a list of all the things she wanted to do together.
The list included things like:
 eat out (twice!), sleep in my bed (she's a little heating pad...whew!), 
watch a movie, (2019 Aladdin- much to my chagrin),
 buy a toy, (a little vet kit from Target),
make a treat, (hot chocolate),
 decorate for Halloween (smoking Scary Sharif Skeleton:),
make books together (have you heard of Storybird.com?),
and read books together, (I pulled out our Halloween ones!!).
I added go to the nursery on her list to get some fall foliage and plants 
for The White House. Early Saturday morning we planted 
mums, ornamental cabbage, coleus, and something else
that's bright red and gorgeous.
I don't know what I would do without Lottie.  
I love hearing her little voice in the back of the car talking
 to me about everything important in her little world,
because everything that is important to her
is important to me!
This week begins the Raleigh Temple open house, 
we are so excited to bring our friends to see this beautiful place!
Last Saturday was officially the first day of the tours,
and over 8,000 people attended!
JOIN US! 
( I'll be there every evening this week!)

HAPPY FALLLLLLLLL!!!!!
