We got these pictures done of the family so I thought I would share. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!
I love this time of year. A little busy, a little crazy, but it's the happiest time of the year. I am so thankful for all my friends and family that love and support us in our lives.
I am so blessed to know that God did send His son for us. I bear testimony that He lives, He loves me and He LOVES you! He was a baby in a manager and grew to be a king, a shepherd, our Savior! I love him!
Have a wonderful Christmas season and a great new year!

Update of the past 4 Months!

Sorry again for taking a break from blogging. Things are getting back to normal so I will continue with the updates. Here's pictures of the last 4 months.

Cameron Keeney Nielson
Born August 4, 2009
At 2:26 pm
In the American Fork Hospital
8 pounds 7 ounces
20 inches long

So I was a full week late. It was worth the wait, he is so beautiful, handsome, stunning and every thing we could have hoped for.
I started feeling contractions on the Friday before and they continued until Tuesday. Didn't know my body could do that but I was very wrong. I even went to the hospital on Monday and I was dilated to a 1! They sent me home! I never wanted that to happen and it did. oh, well, life goes on.
Thanks to everyone that has helped me and my family in this new stage of our lives. We have been brought meals, people have watched my kids and people have come and stayed the whole day with me so I could get a nap in during the day.
I really need to tell my husband THANK YOU!!! He took a week off work and was Mr. Mom and did a better job then I do. I love you more then I can express. You are my world and I love being apart of yours.
Here is some more pictures of our Baby Cameron!

no baby...

Well don't worry everyone, I won't be having this baby anytime soon. With both of my kids I was 4 days late and it doesn't look like I'll be breaking the trend. I'll let you all know but for now... I'm not even close, don't feel any changes. Well have a good day everyone and I'll keep you informed.
Bye for now!

I miss my mommy...

I know that I am a grown women with many responsablities and projects for me to do. Sometimes, don't you just wish that your mom was right there with you, holding your hand, encouraging you, and always telling you your doing a great job.
Today is one of those days for me.
I love my mom and my mother in law so much!
My mom right now is in Arizona visiting her sister and I am so glad she is but I just wanted to let my mom know I love her and miss her and want to be like her.
My mother in law is the same way, so loving and kind.
Today is one of those days where it would be nice to have mommy holding my hand and telling me that I'm doing a good job.
I hope that I can be their for my children when they have "mommy days" like my mom is for me.
Love you Mom
Love you Cris

Mathew and Chloe's New Baby!!!

My brother-in-law and wife had their first baby. Her name is Aspyn and she is soooo cute. I have 5 weeks to go before my baby Cameron comes and seeing her was almost to much. I want a baby sooo bad now. She has tons of hair and the cutest body you have ever seen. We went up to the hospital on Father's day to give our congrats to the happy family. I just got these picture so I had to show off my newest niece.

Congratulations Matt and Chloe!!!

Teaching Emma to be a little lady...

So having a girl I assumed came with the pink dresses, the cute hair, the dolls, tea parties with her stuffed animals, all that girly stuff. I always thought that "my girl" was going to be polite, proper, a little lady. Emma likes all the girl stuff don't get me wrong, but that's only second to her favorite thing to do when mommy isn't watching...


It's true. She LOVES to play in dirt and mud. She even eats it! We are working REALLY hard on not eating it. She's getting a little better.

I have to face the truth.... my girl is just like I was when I was little. I thought I could escape that but I guess it's in the gene's.

Daddy and Emma planting the Garden

Emma was daddy's big helper that morning. She really enjoyed getting in the dirt and getting it everywhere and mommy not getting mad at her for doing it.

The garden is doing well except for a few minor setbacks. This is definitely a learning experience for our family. We will be really excited if we get to eat anything out of our garden.

Father and Sons Campout

Michael and Kaden had a fathers and sons camp out a few weeks back. Kaden thinks this is the best thing ever, even better then Christmas. The day of he would ask me every 10 minutes if it was time to go with Dad. I am not exaggerating either. He was even more excited cause he got to go with Papa and Andrew! Could life get any better? NO!!!
When they got back they were soooo dirty that the dirt was caked on Kadens face I had to scrub hard to get it all off. Oh, well, I am so glad Michael can do this with Kaden.

Emma's 2nd birthday Party

Her theme was Winnie the Pooh. She loved everything about it. She had her friends the Wright girls come over and she had Grammie, Papa, and her aunts and uncle's, who she just adores, come too. It was perfect! We ate peanut butter and honey sandwiches, Rabbits veggie tray, Tiger's teddy grahams and cake. We played her favorite game "See me run" and then played Pooh's honey pot. I think she had a great time. It was her special day.

Video of Kaden playing T-ball

I'm one of the loudest parents at the game's but I just want him to have fun and know that I'm there for him. I've never been the quiet mom and t-ball brings out the crazy mom in me.

Kaden's T-ball Game

Kaden is having the best time playing t-ball with his team and his friends. I was able to get Kaden's friends, Scott and Easton on his team and he loves it.

Tea Party!!!

Kaden is such a great brother. Emma really wanted to have a tea party with Kaden and he went along with it and had a good time. I love watching the difference between boys and girls, it's so special to witness it through your children. Heavenly Father knew what he was doing and I love that he did. Both genders have such amazing qualities about them that is unique and makes them special. I am so thankful that I have a boy and a girl in my life.

Family Home Evening gardening

We have NEVER planted anything before but hey, why not start now... We are going to TRY to have a garden this year and thought we should involve our kids. Here we are planting tomato seeds to grow in the house for a while. I have no clue when we should plant them but we have a bunch of people from our ward that is helping us out.

I forgot....

So last valentines I begged Michael to take me dancing. In another life I use to love it and was kind of good at it. In all the years we have been married we have never gone dancing. My sister, Trisha, was teaching a free ballroom class so I jumped at the chance. Thanks Trisha!
Michael ended up having a great time with me. My mom and dad came and also my older brother Phil and wife Lisa. We learned the Waltz and Cha Cha. It was great!
Here is some picture's of my perfect valentine's present...

Michael You Did It!!!!

I guess the storm comes before the sunshine...

Michael got accepted into the PMBA program at the U of U.
Good Job honey I am so proud of you!!!!!
Don't worry anyone, our loyalty is still to BYU but when they tell you can't work the first year of the MBA you have to go elsewhere.
I love you Michael! You are the best husband ever.

Hello everyone! I hope all is well and getting ready for some warmer weather. I haven't been doing much lately so I haven't felt a need to post anything. But I thought I would post a little about my week so those that feel they are having it rough they can think... "At least I'm not Krista." JK
It wasn't that bad just annoying most of the time.
So it all goes back to last Saturday. Michael stayed home from work to be with the family so we decided to have a fun night going to dinner and going swimming. We get in the car and... it won't start.
The battery died in our van but we weren't going to let that get in the way. We put the car seats in Michael's car and off we went. We had a wonderful time and it made me realize that we don't spend enough time together as a family. So we're going to work on that.

We get home and I try to find my cell phone....
Can't find it!!!!!
All my contacts... everything! I looked everywhere! For 3 days I didn't have a phone.
Luckily, my sister in law had a extra phone that she was willing to let me have. Thanks Rebecca!

Then today Michael goes off to work with a kiss goodbye. After 10 minutes he calls and says he got in a accident...No, this isn't his car. I just got it off the internet to illustrate my story. Neat huh? But he did say that it's pretty bad.
All and all, not the best week for the Nielson family. But hey, it could be worse.... knock on wood...

Love ya all! Take care

IT'S A BOY!!!!!

We asked for it and we got it. We got our ultrasound done and it's a boy! We are so excited, especially Kaden. He wanted a baby brother so bad so he could have a bunk beds. I keep telling him the baby is going to have to sleep in a crib for a while but I guess he'll figure it out sooner or later. I'll try to put ultrasound pictures up as soon as I figure out how to do it.
Bad news though, they moved my date back 14 days! Now my due date is July 28th

Like Father.... Like Daughter????

So this morning Michael is shaving his face when Emma wake's up and wants to see "daddy" I take her to see him and she watches him shave. Then she takes my hand and guides me out of the bedroom, I'm thinking to go down the stairs for breakfast, but she takes me into the kids bathroom where Kaden has a toy shaver and wants to shave her face. Just Like Daddy!!!
It was too cute not to share.

Christmas Eve & Day.... 2 month's late!

So thought I should post some pictures of Christmas. We had a wonderful time!
