BABY isn't life GRAND

I think I must have been on the nice list!Santa found our house this year. We had a great Christmas! Santa came and left a baby grand piano at our house! Who would have thought. The girls and I flew to Reno to spend Christmas with my family. We even got in some Chuck E. Cheese fun! Chris picked us up from the airport and we met up with the Burr's in Utah for some more Christmas fun. Lots of traveling, fun and family, I just forgot to take lots of pictures!
Hailey is now cruising around. She can walk!!! When we got to Reno my sister said Hailey come walk to me, and she stood up and took 10 steps to her. She just needed permission I guess!

Catch Up

Hey I am back. Wow it's been awhile!
Here in sunny Las Vegas we have been enjoying lots of snow! Chris took us to play in it and to sled!
We have been busy enjoying the Christmas holiday. Chris and I went to an UGLY Sweater Christmas Party. Wow they were some pretty ugly sweaters!!

Our neighbors invited us down to their house for a special Christmas Party. Santa came and it was great! Brooklyn let him know that she wanted a camera, and Hailey just expressed her fear of the man!

Patty's Closet

Alright ladies if you haven't been to this store you must go. They have 2 locations. They call one store the pink and the other the blue store. There stuff is so cute and very affordable, but the owners only order 2 smalls, 2 mediums, and 2 larges, so not everyone is wearing the same thing. I got a gift certificate to go there and I was worried I wouldn't find very much that I could wear, oh was I wrong! Go check it out!

Patty's Closet is located in Las Vegas at:

7920 S. Rainbow Blvd. Ste. 115 on the NE corner of Rainbow & Windmill in the Smith's Shopping Center.


7920 S. Cimmarron Rd. Ste. 120 in Mountain's Edge.

Chickenpox Scare

I got a call from my mom today that my nephew had spots all over his body and it might be chickenpox. I was a little worried since we are going to Reno for Christmas to be with my sister. Brooklyn heard me talking about it and she said she wanted to get chicken pox too. At the grocery store I asked her if there was anything else on my list and she looked it over and then she told me we still needed to get CHICKENPOX. I'm not quite sure she understands what they are, but I am so glad we didn't bring them home from the store! (and no he doesn't have chicken pox!)

Oh To Be Thankful...

Wow I really need to work on being more thankful this year. The one thing this year that I have felt overwhelmingly grateful for are my parents. They have been so good to me, even when I didn't deserve it. My dad is the most loving caring dad any little, or grown, girl could ask for. He has been there with me when I needed him most. He was there when Hailey was born and that was so sweet. He has also stepped up when I have needed him to make the long drive to help assist in a blessing when my husband couldn't be present. And then there is my mom. She is so dedicated to her family and to the church. her testimony is so apparent in all her walks of life. She cares for people beyond her own family and gives them her time. She is an amazing Grandma and can play blocks for over an hour straight. She has been a great example to me of the type of wife and mom I should be striving to be.

Black Friday

Alright everyone knows I love to shop. Well so does my sister-in-law and her best friend. I got them out of bed at 12:30 and we shopped till 5:00 AM! It was really fun and lots of giggling took place. There was even a point I thought we might all fall asleep standing up! We all hoped back into bed at 5:00 and prepared for a family day. My old roommate Chana also insisted that we stopped to get cupcakes at 25th Main. We did and they were awesome! There weather was nice lots of rain and beautiful colors. What a fun trip! A little too much fun for some of us. This is what Hailey looked like on our way home. She just put the blanket over her head and she was done!


Lundberg Thanksgiving need I say more... We had a great Thanksgiving, the WHOLE family was there, we did a service project and ate at Chuck-A-Rama! The whole 9 yards!
Oh and I forgot to mention the wrestling match. Yeah Andrew lost!
Aunt Kelly took advantage of the stuffing, a little for her and a little for the doll

Grandpa's Funeral

Wednesday morning we drove through the pouring rain to get to my Grandpa's funeral. It was a wonderful service and we got there in time to see him before they closed the casket. Brooklyn sang with the Great-Grand kids, I sang with the Granddaughters, and Chris was a Paul Bearer. It was great to have the family together. My Grandpa was a wonderful man. The service was a military service and they did a 21 gun salute and then each of the Grand kids got one of the shot gun shells. I am so proud of his service for our country!

Grandpa Nelson

The phone rang at 7:00 this morning and Chris and I woke up to the news that my Grandpa Nelson had passed from this life into the next. He died this morning at 1:40, cause of death being lung cancer. He died with his loving wife right there by his side. She gave him kisses and continued to tell him how much she loved him as his spiritless body lay there. My grandfather was a true hero and a wonderful men and a loving grandfather. Larry Nelson served in World War II he was blown from his tank and passed out, when he came to he was surrounded by German soldiers, he pretended to be dead and when it was safe he was able to be reunited with our troops. Though he survived the war he was injured for life and never able to recover physically, but that didn't stop him from enjoying life. Grandpa had the most fun playing jokes and teasing all of us. He would pop he dentures out and scare us when our parents weren't looking and then deny it when we told them what happened. He always would whistle and I loved listening to him sing. Grandpa would click his tounge to get my girls attention and it always made them laugh and smile at him. I remember my grandfather giving blessings to me and prayers on behalf of our family. He was a great patriarch and will be greatly missed, but I do know that he no longer suffers physically and that he is with our Heavenly Father and his parents now! I am so grateful for the plan of salvation and for a loving Heavenly Father.

Christmas at the Burr's

Last night Chris and I went to The Festival of Trees and Lights. We had a great time and it was fun to be there when the Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada was celebrating their 20th year! We were able to get a tree this year...not the PAC-man tree that Chris wanted, but a HOT pink girl tree that any little girl would love! Here are a few pictures of our tree. More pictures to come later! My Uncle's trucking company delivers the trees. It's fun!These are the oh so strong truck drivers bringing in our tree!Hailey is in amazement, she had no idea that Christmas trees came in this color!Oh and you can't forget one of the gifts that came with the tree were these lovely gold heels. Brooks knew they were made for her!

Being Thankful!

I know this month is November and everyone has there thankful lists going... I just needed to write how thankful I am to have a Heavenly Father who is so aware of me and my needs. That he lives and is very present in my everyday life. I love that I can talk to him and ask him for advice and have the spirit to help guide me. I am so thankful for my girls. I love them both more than I could ever imagine loving a little child. They are both so wonderful and bring lots of laughter into our home. I am overwhelmingly blessed to have a husband who is such a hard worker and who brings a good spirit into our home. I am so thankful for his drive to be a better person and for his ability to help me have a desire to strive to be better. Today I am just grateful to be alive and so blessed. I am thankful for all of you and the special part you all play in my life!

SHE'S 1!

So my baby turned one on Sunday! I was a little teary about the whole thing. This year has really flown by. She hasn't had a bottle since Saturday night... (and mom is hanging in there.) Hailey loves sitting forward in her new car seat. She puts her arms up on the arm rests and just smiles. We love that girl! Happy Birthday!
