Our new addition

For those of you who dont know, my husband is a convert, he was baptized the day after we got married. (busy two days) He left for basic training about 8 months later and got back just in time for me to have Landon so a few months after that, after being married for a year and a half we were able to go to the temple and be sealed for time and all eternity. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to get married in the Manti temple, we live really close to there but when we went we had a 3 month old baby so it was not really easy for us to go there. We got sealed instead at the Vegas temple. It was a beautiful day, and an amazing experience, words can not describe, and that night for the first time since having Landon I was able to sleep well knowing that if I took care of him and did all I was sent here to do that I would be able to be with him for time and all eternity, as well as be with Noah forever.

We went to Costco a few months ago and saw these beautiful pictures of the temples. We were so excited to find these and new that they would make a perfect addition to our home. We bought the Manti temple because it will always hold a special place in my heart and I think it is beautiful. We then ordered the Vegas temple with our name on it and the date we were sealed. We just got it in the mail a few days ago and I am so excited, I love them.
Beautiful aren't they?
