Our Sealing

3:32 pm
Arrival at the Mesa, AZ temple. The boys decked out in their cute suits and super excited that their daddy finally wore his, too. They look sharp.

3:35 pm
Confusion by the temple worker because she's never been a part of a sealing to children. We are brought to the nursery and wait for a worker to arrive.

3:40 pm
Workers arrive. We say goodbye to our cute boys. The workers say they will help them get dressed and bring them to us when it's time. We give lots of hugs and reminders to listen and not jump on everything. We are escorted to records office.

3:55 pm
After finishing paperwork, we leave records office and go get ready.

4:15 pm
Eric and I wait together and talk with our sealer, Brother W.H. Whipple.

4:30 pm
Enter the sealing room to see lots of our family and friends there. Boys enter all in white.

4:40 pm
Wonderful ceremony. Minimal bouncing, climbing and jumping off the alter, and laughing. We are a forever family! Lots of hugging.

4:55 pm
Exit the temple. Pictures by Jacqui. Oh wait, no memory card. Try again. More pictures.

5:05 pm
Head to Fitch park for BBQ.

5:30 pm
Playing and cooking and eventually eating. Lots of wind!! So no table clothes and no cute set up. Dumb wind.

7:30 pm
Clean up, smiles, and goodbye. Ready for a good night's sleep.
