Sealing Day

Last weekend Ben, Nolan and I were sealed in the Ogden Temple (if that doesn't make sense to you, there's some great information at this link that can explain it better than I can)

The ceremony was beautiful, and we were so blessed to have so many of our family members there with us. It was a bit of a long day for Nolan, what with a missed nap in the mix, and by the time we left the temple and I tried to let someone else hold him, he let the tears flow. . .

Thankfully, he recovered quickly and the rest of the day was wonderful.

I had no idea! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you guys and the fact that you were able to have Nolan in there with you is awesome! I just want to keep saying things with lots of exclamation points because I'm so happy for you!

i choose to believe Nolan's tears in that photo are of a deeply mature, moved-by-the-spirit-of-the-day nature....Right?

:) Seriously, though--- I am OVERJOYED for you guys. With all my heart.

Congratulations! That is so awesome! I was blessed to be able to attend my sister, Amy's, sealing to her husband and cute little one last March, and it was an absolutely amazing experience!

There's nothing really to be said that measures up to the occasion, but I couldn't not say anything because... perfect.

Hope you guys are well.

Nolan looks great and so do you.
