Grandma Dalene left to go back to CT today. She was here for 2 weeks and it's been awesome to have her here. She helped with cleaning, decorating, cooking, walking with Nikolas and Caristy, and helping Caristy with whatever was needed. It was so wonderful. Thanks for helping us out! Nikolas loved having such a long time to get to know his Grandma Dalene!

Our town was under a tornado watch for a little bit tonight and then we had a horrible lightning and thunderstorm. John went out and took some pictures of the lightning....it looks really really cool!!

We are getting ready for Sunday School for this coming year and we've got a big class. So the decision was made to knock out one of the walls and make the Sunday School room bigger and to combine it with the nursery. Jeff and his son started the job of knocking out the wall and fixing the electric and on Saturday the finishing touches will be put on. John took the pictures because I still can't go downstairs.

Caristy is not allowed to go downstairs or lift much of anything so while we were in Fargo we got some bedding and additional things for the downstairs bathroom. Since Caristy couldn't go downstairs mom finished decorating downstairs. It turned out really nice! :-)
Afterwards, Mom and Caristy went for a walk with Nikolas and then Tante Jewel and Grandma R. came to visit with us. Grandma R. was so excited to meet Nikolas it was fun to see them together.

We have just been kind of mellow since Nikolas' birth. Just taking pictures and watching the different expressions that Nikolas makes. Caristy's mom, Caristy and Nikolas went for a walk around town and then we had two visitors. Diana and Mia came to see Nikolas. It was fun.....Mia liked giving Nikolas his pacifer.

Caristy's sister Alexi had to go home today. We drove to Fargo and did some shopping (Caristy needed to pick up some things) and then we hung out at John's parents house. Tante Alexi did a great job burping Nikolas and just being a great Tante. Nikolas really misses Tante Alexi for all the snuggling he did with her in the mornings. We wish that she could have stayed longer....but can't wait to see pictures of her new place.

While we were in Fargo while Caristy went and ran errands with her mom and sister, John and Nikolas went to visit Nikolas' great grandma and grandpa Olson. Then Grandpa Wally stopped over at John's parents house so that he could meet and hold Nikolas.

Nikolas had kind of a rough night....not horrible but he was trying to get used to his new digs. On Sunday he got dressed (in the shirt that Grandma Olson gave him) and had a staring contest with John. Then he got to meet his Uncle Ole and Tanta Kim. Then had his picture taken by a bear (that his Grandma and Grandpa Dalene gave him). Then he decided to look angelic as he slept.

Nikolas and I got to come home today! It was a long day of shots, making sure both Mom and Nikolas were doing okay. :-) (Nikolas surprised us when he didn't really cry when they drew blood....okay Caristy was surprised!)
We also had to laugh at how tiny he looks in his car seat.
We got home to mom and Lexi there to help out and a big sign to welcome Nikolas home.
