December was our ward/youth temple trip. We were excited to go because Mallory turned 12 in November and could go! She was so excited! Since I am in the YW presidency I already had to go, and Michael came to assist with the baptisms. It was such a wonderful day, long but wonderful! Living in Arizona we have to sacrifice a little bit more to make it to the temple. It's not just a 2 minute drive with all sorts of family around to babysit the kids. We meet at the church early in the morning, arrange transportation, then make the 2 1/2 hour drive up to Vegas. A couple from our ward goes up to babysit the kids across the street at the church (this is awesome). We switch off every month. Since it was the youth baptisms also, it took a little longer! Michael was able to do the baptizing with Mallory. She looked so cute and sweet! When we were done we retrieved all the kids and then went to dinner with some other families (this month Olive Garden won out over Cafe Rio). Then we drove home. We were so tired we didn't even stop at Costco or Target! Took us 12 hours to do the temple trip!

The Las Vegas Temple is so beautiful. Excited to go back in February!
