4 Christmas suggestions

Hey guys,

Here are some of my favorite things that I'd like to suggest
 you look into as Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
If you act now, (like today) you can still get these items in time for Christmas:

(FOR HIM) 1. Rhone jacket (or anything from their website).
Mr. Nielson has a few things from Rhone that are amazing 
on him and the quality is supreme.
Seriously, your man, son, father, husband, would really really like Rhone.
Check out Mr. Nielson in this amazing Lion hoodie:
(Deal running on now for Lion Hoodie!
Use code Jammies)

(FOR HER/YOU) 2. Head over to & Apparel for unique dresses and sweaters.
(necklaces are sweet too)
This dress (below) was the little gem I wore to the
burn gala in Arizona a week ago.  
I also really am loving THIS

These babies can be shipped anywhere and are the perfect treat for 
your party, or mom, or teacher or, of course, for you.

4.'Beautiful Heart Pillow' that I created with Latter-Day Home.
Quoted from my New York Times Bestseller Heaven is Here, this pillow 
serves as a great reminder of what truly makes a beautiful life.
Also, in case you haven't ordered your Christmas cards, it's not too late.
I used Pinhole Press again, like I do every year.
They are easy to work with, and wonderful costumer service.
I used this card and love it-- can't wait to get them out to family and
friends in the mail!!

Happy shopping!

 Today Mr. Nielson and I celebrate 14 years of marriage together.
Or in other words, its my little families birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Nielson Family!!  (thanks for the idea Niki)

I love you very very much my Mr. Nielson.
As per tradition,  we will get another tally mark in our wedding rings
that will signify another wonderful and fulfilling year together.

Celebrating life

While in Arizona, we spent a day celebrating Mr. Nielson's sister Charity, 
who at the age of 26 passed away from cancer.
Charity died 2 months after her first and only son was born.  
Every December 11th, Mr. Nielson's family has a little memorial at her graveside 
where we celebrate her life and her short mission on earth.
Charity was full of wisdom and grace.  She was beautiful and witty.  
I miss her, and am sad that my children- especially my girls, won't get to know her in this life.  
But we believe that because of Christ, we will be united with Charity again. 
 It is a beautiful promise, and one that we deeply rely on when times are hard.
Also while at the cemetery we visited Doug.  Doug was our friend
and pilot who was killed in our airplane crash.
 I fondly think about the Kinneard family during the holidays, 
when they are missing their father and husband.
My heart goes out to all of them.
I also couldn't leave the cemetery without saying hello to my 
great great great grandfather Daniel Webster Jones.
What a cool dude.
