I can't believe how BEAUTIFUL everything was for the wedding! The pictures, the decorations, everything. Of course...I can believe it, because it's my mother, and my sister, and all of the wonderful people that I love so much who put it together. Even if you did put a picture of me on a popsicle stick...I still love you all so much!!!!
This week was great. I did fine on Thursday, probably because we were so busy that I didn't have time to think about it too much. Tender mercy of the Lord. Friday was a little harder actually, being in the temple. Before going back to the dressing room, I stopped in one of the gorgeous Winter Quarters temple sealing rooms with Sister Peterson and we just kind of sat there in the doorway for a second, thinking about how sacred the temple was and that my BEST FRIEND- my little sister- was just sealed by the power of the priesthood the day before. I am so grateful, like Dad said in his email, to have the priesthood in our lives and in our family. It was also so good to hear about how many family members came!!! We are so blessed.
Tonight, we are going to have a big dinner over at Dr. Fischer's house. I don't know if you remember me telling you that we serve at a free clinic every now and then with him? He isn't a member of the church, but is a really close friend to the Trail Center and we have all grown really close to him. He lives in Sister Whittaker's area, and she is teaching him, along with the elders in her area- Elder Wadsworth and Elder Bellows (from AZ). He bought ALL of the stuff to have Cafe Rio pork salads and brought it to me so I could cook because last time we ate over there I told him I wanted to cook this time. He's the best. We are going over to do service first- picking apples in an orchard- and then we will have dinner. Probably some musical numbers too because that's what we do here haha.
I love you all so much! I hope that this week is another great week, and that the reception in Utah goes as smoothly as the one in AZ did!
