Temple Trip

Sorry there are no pictures of us but even if there were just imagine the temple with two people standing in front of it trying to take a self portrait. Thats all Cody and I have. One day our kid will be big enough to snap a few...I hope.

I'm not sure what I would classify this week as. Nice cuz I'm only working a few hours? Stressful because I'm only working a few hours? Anxiety about moving? Hot? Sweaty? Edgey? Moody? Cry on a dime? You name it.

It was sure nice going to the temple tonight but we almost had a nice set back. We stopped to get Cody some garments (his late father's day present...exciting) and the lady behind the counter pointed out his recommend was expired!!! What?!! Mine isn't? So how is his when we renewed them on the same day? Interesting. We figured we'd try to get into the temple anyways and that they'd have mercy on us! We walked right up to the counter and sure enough those sweet little old people CAN see AND HEAR when the computer says, "sorry expired" or whatever it does. Fortunately the temple president came out and chit chatted for a while and let us in. I was so happy. Like I said, it was a perfect time to be there with my emotions off the charts.

It was beautiful and uplifting as always. We sat in the celestial room and I just bawled. Cody just sat in silence with me and held my hand and to me it was the best feeling. He then put his hand on my belly and said, "this is like one of the last times that you, me and the baby will be in the temple together." I said, "for at least 19 years." You can imagine my thoughts. I love the temple. I love that even with the hussle and bussle of our lives, there is a place for peace and a place to escape it all! What a blessing.

Before going into the waiting room I was trying my hardest to hurry and I got cut off by two ladies...one a little older...maybe in her 60's? Well as she walked up the stairs in front of me, poor little thing just couldn't control her flatulence. I thought I was going to die laughing. Cody saw me and thought I was crying...which I was but only because I was holding in my laughter! Classic.

I just left my comment and it didn't save it! Dang it...OK I'll try to remember what I wrote...
I got all teary eyed at Cody's comment about you guys and the baby. Then I read about the lady in front of you and just chuckled a little. (WHY do these things happen around YOU?) My boys are in here with me and Braden asks me what's so funny. I just shake my head and say, Your aunt Danica, she's crazy. Logan looks at me very seriously and asks, Did she poop in her pants? What! I laugh a little more and tell him, Well, its possible!

Hey...you're too funny. I hope the move went okay. Did anyone show up to help from the ward? I hope so. Sorry we couldn't come. We also wanted to have you guys over last night for games but I got really grouchy after church for some reason and decided it wasn't the best idea. :) Darn emotions...and I'm not even pregnant. Anyway, I don't know if I told you this before but September 21st was my exact due date for Tanner. He came 3 weeks early, though but I just thought that was interesting. Anyway, call me if you need anything.
