Needless to say I was not able to change from the dress I wore to the Temple until I got home at 7:30pm. Twelve hours in a dress and hills, not great on a pregnant woman's body!
The Temple was wonderful. I love sealings, it helps you remember your own sealing. It was such a blessing to be able to participate in my Dad's. He past away 2 years ago and my Aunt Barbie (my Dad's sister in the picture below) helped us so much in getting his work done. She and her daughter Robin were able to come to share the day with us. My parents were also able to come and do some sealings with us. It was great to be in the Temple with my brother and sister, sharing something that has been so important to us for so many years. I remember as kids we would write our testimonies in Book of Mormons and give them to my Dad in hopes that one day he would come back to the church. Before he died he was doing all he could to come back and just didn't have enough time. It was such a great feeling to sit in the Temple and know that all his blessings had been restored and know that is what he wanted.
Only 2 1/2 more weeks!!! Can you tell we are a little excited?
It was a crazy day and I was pooped by the end but I loved every minute!
