Christmas at the Nelsons

Highlights of Christmas: 
1.  Christmas Eve: we acted out the Nativity story about 6 times.  Then, Kiera insisted on wearing her Mary attire to the resturant where we went to celebrate Steve's birthday.  We got some chuckles.  She also took a nap with her Mary attire on. 
2.  Kiera and Lydia were SOOO excited for santa.....until bedtime on Christmas eve.  Then they were scared to death of the idea of a fat bearded man coming in our house during the night.
3. Lydia ran into a piano and hit her head really hard.  I was holding her immediately afterwards and she had what looked to me like a siezure that lasted for about 5-7 seconds.  But a good source informed me that she probably just passed out.  Either way it scared me to death.

Melt my heart

There are only 2 nights a week that I'm home from work and get to participate in the little lady night time routine.  On those nights I have like to have prayers, "cuddle time" and sing to my girls.  Tonight I put Lydia to bed before Kiera. Kiera announced that SHE wanted to put Lydia to bed all by herself.  So, I left the room and Kiera climbed in bed to have cuddle time with Lydia (of course I'm listening at the door).  Kiera asked Lydia "did you  have I nice day?"  "what fun things did we do today?"  Then she sang Lydia a primary song, gave her a kiss, tucked her in, and told her "if you open the door I'm going to take you blanket away.  I love you.  Goodnight"  and she came out.  So sweet.

Enjoy the snow, and then go home.

Until this year, Kiera has always been scared to death of the snow.  But this year we had a blast in it while in Utah.  What fun!  Sledding, snow angels, snowmen, and my favorite was Kiera and Lydia laying on their bellies eating the snow. 
Fun to play in it and then fun to go home to So Cal to 75 degree weather!

kiera's birthday

Better late than never posts:  Kiera turned 4 November 22nd.   We had a little friend party for her combined with her little friend Baily who was turning 3.  She enjoyed it.  I love how magical birthdays are for 4 year olds.
