Zoe Jane Nielson

Our sweet little baby Zoe was born November 17th at 7:43 am. She was 7 lbs 5 oz and 20 in long. She is such a good little baby, she eats and sleeps really well and we fell in love with her the minute we saw her. I got a repeat c-section and when Aj brought her over so I could see her she was crying until she heard my voice, it was the sweetest thing ever!
Mama loving on the new little baby. She is such a cuddle bug and I love to hold her and love on her.
Daddy loving on her :) He was such a trooper and stayed the nights at the hospital with us on that very uncomfortable chair/bed. Love you babe!
This is her very own going home outfit. We have so many baby girl clothes but I wanted her to have at least one thing of her own. She looked so cute!
At home with the new big sisters! They love her so much and are such good helpers to me. They helped me and my mom give her a bath and she was so happy after it. I love you all my sweet little girls!
A huge thanks to Lynette, Catherine and my mom for coming up and helping out with my girls! I really don't know what I would have done without all of your help :)

Worst blogger in the world!

Ok read on if you dare! I have been a horrible blogger and really wanted to get updated before little Zoe comes, only one more week!


Halloween was BUSY this year we had an MBA Halloween party, Mayli's class party and then Halloween day. Here is my sweet Dorithy with her Toto and basket to complete the outfit. Mayli loved dressing up is so stinkin cute all the way down to her red ruby slippers!
Oh my sweet Tori. We found out on the Wednesday before Halloween when the kids were suppose to wear their costumes to story time at the library that she DID NOT want to wear her costume. She was going to be Glinda the good witch but would have none of it, or any other costume for that matter. It took everything I had to just get her to wear this little witch hat head band and her Halloween t-shirt. Oh well pick your battles right!
They both looked pretty cute if I do say so myself :)
On Halloween Danny and Lynette came up and we went to Spencer's parents house to go to their ward party and to trick-or-treat around their neighborhood. It was awesome and the girls got SO much candy, we will be eating it until Easter! All the girls looked so cute in their costumes and had so much fun together.

The Scarecrow Festival

The place where Amy and Spencer work does a fund raiser at Thanksgiving point around Halloween time and Lynette came up and all the grandkids went together. It was so much fun! There is so much to do but right when we got there the girls did this trampoline thing where you get strapped in and bounce really high. I wish you could see Tori's face better because she was going SO high and loving it. She is going to be my dare devil for sure!
Mayli on the other hand loved it but only wanted to go as high as she could jump.
We got to go over to Farm country and get a pony ride. All the kids loved it and as you can see Mayli got her face painted like a butterfly, she loved it!
Tori loved riding the horse too and you cant see it very well but she picked a dolphin to be painted on one of her cheeks, she looked so cute :)
Thanks so much to Amy and Spencer and Grammie Lynette for such a fun day!

Oreganos with Cath in AZ!

The girls and I went to AZ for Lanny and Kim's wedding (pictures to come) and got to stay for about a week since it was Mayli's fall break. Catherine and I went out on a date to Oreganos to have some yummy food and some sister time :) Love you Cath!

Pudding Painting!

9/9- Natalie made these cute aprons for the kids and after story time at the library one day they got to try them out with pudding painting. The kids had lots of fun.
Of course the best part was that they could eat it! They all had their fair share of the pudding!
Thanks Aunt Natalie!

Camping & Fishing!

9/5- Over the Labor Day weekend we went camping with Amanda and her family and Amy and her family. It was so much fun, the girls loved making smores and playing around the camp fire with all the other girls. As you can see Tori had a great time!
Mayli was so sweet and such a fun camper. She is really the reason we went at all, she has been asking for years to go camping.
The next morning while the adults packed up the girls got to (stay out of the way) watch Monster's Inc on the portable dvd player. We know how to camp!
This is the other reason we went, Mayli has been wanting to go fishing and she finally got to! She had alot of fun and it was so nice because there was a little lake right next to where we camped, perfect!
That day was Aj's birthday and as you can tell from this picture he was not aware that the fishing was suppose to be for the kids. :) He had a great time and did not want to leave.
Thanks everyone for such a fun camping trip!

I love to see the Temple

8/29- One weekend when the Nielsons came to visit we went to Temple Square. It was beautiful and the kids had so much fun.
I love this picture of the 3 girly cousins, they just love each other so much!
I wanted a picture of our family like this from on top of the conference center because we have one of just Aj and I before we were married and one of Aj, Mayli and I. It is a beautiful view from up there.
