It's great to be 8!

Josie will be turning 8 on Friday Jan. 29th and so in anticipation of the "big baptism day" we teamed up with some friends and met with a photographer and the new Oquirrh Mountain Temple in South Jordan. It was freezing cold, and Josie is seriously lacking in the "meat" needless to say, she was shivering quite violently and her lips were a pretty shade of violet! But, it was great fun to have her in a beautiful white dress sitting/standing on the temple grounds. I told her that someday she could even come back to this same temple in another white dress and get married! She wasn't so excited about that idea, simply because boys are still "gross" but hopefully the seed was planted and it will be a goal of hers for the future! She is such a blessing to our family, and I am so lucky to be her mom! And of course, I told her that many people pay big bucks for highlights in their hair that are naturally hers. What a sweet little angel..and I still can't believe she's already 8 years old. It seems like yesterday Alan and I were blessed with the first little girl in our family. It was another snowy and cold day when she came into the Colorado you Josie!
