Last weekend I was in SLC with my activity day girls to attend the Draper Temple OpenHouse. They let me spend a few hours with some of the dearest people in my life. We went to Italian Village to eat, which is what we do best! I had a great time seeing all of you and I know I'll be back soon!! (Sorry Riley-you didn't make the picture.)

This past weekend, Terry and I had the opportunity to do something we hadn't done in a long time. Baptisms for the Dead. We have been working on the New Family Search site of the church for the past while and finally had some names we could take to the temple with us. It was a wonderful experience to take a person through the temple from start to finish. On Friday night, we did the baptism and confirmation of terry's great aunt and uncle and about 15 more names. Saturday morning started bright and early with initiatory, then endowment sessions for these same people. We then did sealings to Terry's great-grandparents of these two people and three other siblings who died in infancy. We also helped do other sealings that the temple had. It really brought to mind the reason we do these things, and reminded us both of our own covenants and the promises we made with Heavenly Father. What a Day!!!
