We went to visit the Draper Temple last night. What a process! First you go to the designated Stake Center. Where you sit and wait, and then row by row, they take you into a room to watch a pretty neat video with the history of the Draper area. Then you wait for a bus to take you to the Temple. You finish in the church that's right by the temple...with some refreshments. Which is where this picture was taken. After that you wait for your bus again. I can't believe all the work that goes into this. Bus's, refreshments, all the people named Usher (All the helpers had what looked to be name tags, and they all said Usher. Dumb, I know. But I found it quite funny!) The tents that took you from the bus to the Temple, and from the Temple, to the Church, and of course all the coverings for the floor. WOW!
The temple was BEAUTIFUL! Kaisey was getting really tired, but she LOVED the chandeliers. She also at one point was looking at nothing.....and began clapping and smiling. I feel as though it was my Grandpa Great Strong. There was a moment in the Temple where I was almost overwhelmed with love and peace. It's been way too long since I've gone to the Temple. That will be my goal for February.
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
