Temple Square 2009

We met my family and the Workman's at Crown Burger on Monday night to have dinner and see the lights at Temple Square for family night.
The tabernacle
The group, minus my dad
The lights are so amazing! I can't believe how intricately wrapped in strands all the branches of the trees are.
My family, Botts didn't make it because they were sick, and Don...he's in France on his mission.
The Red lights are my personal favorite
Reese, as always, was so content the whole time! She loves being dragged around to experience anything and everything!
This set up, with the nativity scene on the reflection pool and the lights shining down from on top of buildings, was beautiful!
Reese being a big girl and walking toward the crowd.
I love Christmas time. I love that everyone is a little kinder and more generous. I love spending large amounts of time with family and I love remembering our Savior's life. Here is a good quote from President Monson from the 1st Presidency Christmas Devotional this year:
"With the pure love of Christ, let us walk in His footsteps as we approach the season celebrating His birth. As we do so, let us remember that He still lives and continues to be the Light of the World, who promised, 'He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
Eric, Reese, and I wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas!!
