In my last post I mentioned I was ready for spring as I saw my little family jumping in rain puddles. That very night it started to snow for two days straight. I have to eat my words because I found that I wasn't quite ready for spring. I'm still enjoying the winter. I took these snow pictures on Tuesday. I love the beauty of snow. And I love that while I was taking this picture the sun was out and these soft little flakes were falling that were only useful for watching, because they would melt when they hit the ground. I'm falling in love with Utah again. I love that winter has breaks of sun and rain around here, and that it can snow again.
Today we went to the Draper Temple Openhouse. Another great thing about Utah, is that there are temples being dedicated every couple of years and that there are close enough to go see. They are working on another temple that should be completed soon. Monkey was so excited to be able to go to the temple before she was 12 and see all the rooms inside. This is on our bus ride from the church to the Temple. This is the first time that Bug has cheesed it for the camera. She saw I was taking pictures of her did this cheesy smile and said "I wanna see"! Oh digital age. I think I would have liked pictures better as a child if I could have seen how they turned out immediately after.
Monkey is in a funny phase, where she has to be goofy for all pictures. It drives her mother crazy. I love those blue eyes though.
Monkey's favorite room in the temple was the sealing room. When we came to it, she just stopped and stared. When asked why that was her favorite, she said because it was so pretty. On the way home she asked her Daddy if he would come to her wedding at the Draper Temple. I thought it was so cute. I just hope a temple wedding remains a goal until that day. The tour ended in a nearby church. They had a beautiful display set up and one of the volunteers offered to take our picture. It was very sweet, but he was kinda in a rush. I love my little family so much.
