We took the kids to the Temple last night, so we could get it in before it's over. The weather was perfect, not too cold, but not too warm either. It just doesn't work for me if I am hot! We stooped by QT yummiest gas station Hot Cocoa around.
AS we sat around the statue of Christ, I felt the spirit so much. I watched my kids, and was so thankful that they know how to behave in the Visitors center. There was a lady next to us, whose little girl kept running up to the statue, and then she kept yelling her name to get her to come back, and she thought it was cute. Lady, there are people here trying to feel the spirit, trying to listen to the words, not to you yelling at your kid!
Cooper came over and sat by me, and even at that young age, he could fell it too. He was so reverent, and he knew how special of a place it was. I love my kids, they bring me so much joy!
I also thought about how last year, while we sat in that very same spot, Jon got the feeling that we should have another baby(it was a huge surprise to me, he had been telling me for 2 years we were done!), and now look where we are. We never would have had sweet Macy if it wasn't for that. Luckily no such revelation came last night.
Anyhow, another tradition I love. SO glad we made it, and just in the nick of time!
