I love to see the temple...

In keeping with the advice of President Monson he gave yesterday (I think it was him at least!), we decided to take the kids to the temple tonight for FHE and "let them touch the temple!" Ok, Brooklyn probably didn't even realize it was there. She was too excited to run around the temple grounds. What a blessing to have temples to visit! I felt so overwhelmed looking at the U.S. flag flying next to the Angel Moroni. I am so thankful to be able to worship freely!!


"Knock, knock!"

Brookyn didn't want to stop to pose for pictures! No rest for the weary!
Last week my good friends Toni and Stephanie came over for a much needed girls lunch. Brooklyn and Troy LOVE them! Brooklyn especially loves their kids. Toni brought Jocelyn (known as "Jossy" to Brooklyn), and Brooklyn couldn't have been more thrilled! She doesn't get out much. Ha ha! She always talks about her friends "Jossy" and "Ella". We ate a light lunch so we could fill up on this: yummy lemon pudding cake! Toni playing "Simon says" with the kids. :)
Troy and Stephanie
Brooklyn and Joselyn. See how much she looks up to her?!

good thinking! You just planned next weeks FHE for us...thanks. I love Brooklyn's shirt at the temple! AND I LOVE your family picts on your last post! Everytime I looked at one I thought, Oh that's my favorite, and then I would go to the next and think Oh that's my favorite and on and on.

What a great idea for FHE! And such a beautiful day too--you guys are so good!
Oh, and thanks for your comments. Jenna's bath seat is actually just one of those cheap foam pads from Target...Jenna doesn't even stay on it anymore---but it did keep her from slipping before she was mobile I love it though and it was only like $5!
