Family pics

How amazing is this picture? Brooke took it and of course edited it, she is out-of-control

Here are some of pictures that didn't work. You know how when you take pictures with the kids the parents just hold their smile and you wait for the kids to get on board, well, jono had a little bit of a hard time with that. If you know Jono at all these pics are pretty priceless.

Random Pictures

Here are a few random pictures, Elliana is getting so big and I'm surprised to see how much Kalia and her play together. I remember when I was in about fourth grade I wrote in my journal that I got to sit on a horse and that it was the best day of my life. Kalia has been to the beach, rode a pony, Disneyland, Sea World and the zoo more times in her short life then I did in the first 20 years of mine. Kalia also plays with friends almost everyday, she lives quite the charmed life. I hope that she appreciates or will appreciate these things as much as I did.

Which Is Which??

I can finally tell the difference between the two girls, but I'm curious if everyone else can. Watch out Seriously So Blessed, I am doing a giveaway on my blog. Unfortunately, I can't offer much but I will offer a snack-size, you heard me right, a snack-size candy bar for everyone that gets it right. (prizes will not be mailed)

Pure Laziness

I have not updated my blog for some computer reasons but my biggest reason was being lazy. Here are a few cute pictures I have. I went to Disneyland with Syd on Thursday, it was fun to go on all the big rides I haven't been on in years. Yes, one of those is a picture of the picture on the wall at splash mountain. I'm taking scamming Disneyland to a new level. Actually I saw a bunch of other people do it so I did it too. Thankfully it hides my face so there isn't evidence of how scared I was, I'm kind of a baby.

Kalia or Elliana????

On Friday at 11:10 am I became a Mom, again. Elliana Kristina Nielsen was 7.1 pounds and 19.5 inches long. The delivery went very smoothly and I was very grateful. My parents and Syd came out to help and we sure needed it. She had her days and nights mixed up and liked to be up all night. She is doing better now and things are good. Kalia had so much fun with her uncle Syd and played with him the whole time and barely noticed the new baby. Elliana looks exactly like Kalia did when she was born. I think most people know which is which if they have seen these pictures before but I seriously can't tell the difference.

Here are the hospital pics...........

Sisters and first family pic.......

Kalia and Syd.........

Also, I got to give a BIG thanks to Gay who took Kalia the night before and had her the entire next day. She also bought me lunch after Kalia left for Utah, which was very traumatic. Thanks to everyone for all of the help I have received, it's much appreciated.

So Sorry.....

So sorry I have not been keeping my blog updated. I am going to do better because I sort of have my computer back. My laptop has been gone for 5 months!! I had one request in my absense so here are the requested pictures. I have a halloween pic, only 4 months late. Also, pictures of Sydney's visit who came in December. Also some Disneyland pictures. Jono and I went to Disneyland with Kalia on my birthday and had a really good time. Hopefully most of you know that you get in free on your birthday but what you may not know is if you are a so-cal resident then you can get a yearly pass for $134 AND if you go on your birthday they give you a $69 discount. So my yearly pass was ..... $65, can you believe it? I have already been back and almost cried on the way there because I felt like I was going for free. For the first time, I walked away from Disneyland feeling like I have ripped them off, it was a good feeling for everyone involved.

PS In case anyone doesn't know, I'm pregnant and I have less than 9 weeks left, not that I'm counting. We are most likely having a girl. I have had over 6 ultrasounds and everytime the legs are closed but they never " see anything hanging" so they are counting that as a probably a girl.

PPS If you are hoping for baby bump pictures you are barking up the wrong tree, pregnancy and I are not close friends so if you want to see cute prego pictures you will have to check my list of blogs, almost everyone I know is pregnant.
