"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Temple Square~

Saturday we did lots of shopping looking for the perfect
Christmas dresses and a baptism dress for Jolene. The girls
had so much fun trying on every dress in their size
until they found THE dress.
After shopping Raychel had her appointment for her
Pointe shoes. She was so excited!!! As we walked into the
ballet store Raychel said she had been waiting for this
day since she was 3!
She was so excited!!
After getting fitted for her shoes we headed to lunch.
I can't remember the last time we all laughed so hard!
After lunch we headed over to Temple Square to see all the lights,
they were beautiful!
The streets were so festive with all the decorations.
We drove around the square taking it all in until
we found a place to park. I don't think I have ever
seen so many people in one place.
As we walked into the square we could
hear the Christmas music. There was a beautiful nativity
scene which was all set up over the main lawn.
It was so spiritual to stand and listen to the
narrator tell the nativity story
and the music that would go along with it.
The girls and I couldn't take it
all in! There was so much to see! We took lots of pictures
and walked aroundseeing all we could.
As we left the square they was a table selling
cookies and hot cocoa, which only added
to the whole experience!
