Our Big Day

On Saturday, October 18th, we three went to the temple to be sealed together as a family forever. For us this was equally (if not more) exciting as the day we adopted Madeline! It was beautiful and unforgettable.

Heading inside the temple.

Afterwards with our immediate family that was able to be there with us. I prefer close-up shots, but how could I crop out the beautiful fall leaves in the background?!

She was so done at this point! This picture does not do her true feelings justice. Little did she know that we had a big party/lunch planned at our house for right after, and she would not get a nap for another almost 3 hours! Thankfully she perked up once we got home.

What a great day!

Wow, you guys look overjoyed...what a beautiful day on so many levels! My heart sings for you..."families can be together forever...". Remember when we had Sisters Conference at the Mission Home, and we said we felt the spirit so strong we wanted to "cry out loud"? That's how I feel looking at all of you together at the Temple. I really am so happy for you!

Congratulations! That is so exciting, and your family is so cute!

P.S. It is from you that I have learned that when taking a picture, if you think you're close, you can always get closer! Love the close ups!
