Temple Square





This past Sunday we went to Temple Square with our dear friends, Chandra and Spencer. Both Joe and Spencer are big goof balls so we had a great time. And it was also a great reminder of the reason why we celebrate the Christmas season. I took so many pictures you would of thought that I was a tourist and not someone who lives minutes from downtown Salt Lake. We got a lot of snow on Friday and Saturday so it was quite cold out. We made sure that Zachary was bundled up nice and warm. And headed out. I like to think that he enjoyed looking at all of the lights. But I think that all he probably saw was my face jumping out in front of him constantly to make sure that he was warm enough. We didn't make it down to Temple Square last Christmas due to moving into the house but there were some things that were new. Up near the Church office building they had luminaries. Some were bags but there were a ton that were metal. They looked so cool! Each bag said Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays in a different language. And the metal ones had various pictures of the manger

scene. Not only that but that had several large Nativitys from various countries set up around the Church office building. It really was a great
time to walk around the Temple and reflect the Christmas season. I am grateful for the birth of my Savior and pray that someday Zachary might understand the importance of this holiday season.
