Why is it that I seem to only update this blog when we have taken a new family photo? Any way, here are... the new family photos.
I've been meaning to do a photo of our family at the Temple for a while. We tried a month or so ago but it wasn't up to my standard so it never saw the light of day.
Des and I have been going to the Temple every month for the past 7 months and we thought we'd bring the kids with us this time. It was the Saturday before Des' birthday and we did the trip as a way to celebrate the occasion. I brought my lights and we got the kids all cleaned up. Whlie we were there the girls got to see a bride come out of the Temple and they were just starstruck and all they could talk about was how much they wanted to be married in the Temple (as long as we can keep them focused on that one goal I will be happy). Even Ben was saying that he was looking forward to being able to go in one day.
I decided to do our photos on the opposite side of the temple where everyone else does their photos. i have admired this side for a while because of the mature trees and how they frame the Temple rather then the temple just standing out there like it does directly opposite from were we were.
I have to say that the past 7 months have gone a lot better then I would have imagined. After loosing my job I never would have thought we would being doing as well as we have been. I know it is, in part, a result of our regular Temple attendance.
