Laid in bed while Etta watched Cinderella for the 100th glorious time and poked me in the eyes.

Ate Oreos for breakfast...yeah, you heard me.

Traded Rob places at church so as not to infect everyone with our diseased child.

Came home to a wonderfully clean and quiet house...husbands are the best.

World cup...woot.

Made a new station on Pandora. How rad is Pandora?

Salsa and reheated au gratin for lunch.

Seriously thought about doing laundry.

Played some soccer. I outta fly down there and teach those guys how it's done.

Speaking of flying, gave the kids some wicked airplane rides.

Actually did some laundry.

Vacuumed over the same spot 20 times instead of bending over to pick up that darned kernel.

Soaked up the sweet moments with my family before goodbyes and goodnights.

Made a To Do list including aforementioned laundry which I then proceeded to cross off. It makes the list seem more approachable if somethings already done doesn't it?

Dinner: Popcorn and I may have had a few more Oreos. Jealous?

Read about crazy LSI sales people who by popular opinion should apparently burn. Harsh. I don't know about you but I thought those movies were pretty boss when I was eight...ok 18.

Watched Next Food Network Star which I convince myself I'd win...I'm the best at everything from my safe little couch at home.

Baby Blessing

Our sweet Liam was blessed on May 16, 2010. We felt so lucky to have family and friends join us for this special day. He was blessed William Keith Neilson by his dad with a special prayer.

This is a rough time of day for Etta if you can't tell...

Liam is a very special little boy. You don't think you'll be able to love so much time and time again but you can. He is very tender, snuggly, and always happy. I have a feeling he's going to be one of those people you just want to be around...who always has a huge smile, a warm hug, and a way of putting people at ease. A humble peace maker just like his daddy. What a sweet spirit we've been given.
