. . . together . . .

. . . my definition of a happy day
is when my family is all TOGETHER . . .
. . . we laugh a lot. . . . . . we act really silly . . . . . . we tell funny stories . . .
. . . & drink too much
caffeine
late at night . . .

. . . but, the happiness you see here is

NOTHING
compared to how i was feeling
an hour earlier . . .

. . . having a wonderful son,

beautiful daughters,

their great husbands,

& my own husband! {hurray!}

TOGETHER

in the temple . . .

it was the best feeling ever!

. . . bring on eternity . . .
{we're sorry bill had to miss the fun afterward}
{we love all our friends, extended family,
& ward members who joined us, too}
{i feel certain that if there is food in heaven,

He really did get to be there?!Steph (and family), I am so happy for you! Seriously, that's the best news. And I can't believe our little Andrew Davis is old enough to be going through the Temple and leaving the country on his own for 2 years! Oh, and P.S.- What a picture perfect little family you have there! SO fun.

Congrats on the bog day!! So glad ALL of your family was able to make it, and Oregano's looked delicious - I heart the pablo picasso!

What a good day that must have been! I can imagine as a mom that having your entire family in the temple at the same time has got to be heaven on earth (literally)! And I agree with what you said about the Pablo Picasso salad. It's the best! And I think that if there is dessert in heaven, Oregano's pazookie will be one of the many in my corner!

That's so exciting! And I LOVE that salad it will be in heaven!

How beautiful is that!!! What a wonderful blessing that all of your children are worthy to attend the temple. . . and with you! The greatest thing a mother could celebrate!

That was such a special moment to have our WHOLE family in the temple together! How awesome! Dad did say that we had one person missing though, Drew's future wife. And dad said that she would be joining us in 3 years or so. Drew quickly said it would be 6 years. Haha. I loved it, the temple and dinner and the company! Our family rocks!

What an awesome experience that had to have been for you! I have to be honest, I have only been to Oregano's once and it was for a pizookie so I will definately have to try that salad some time :) K, now how do we get Amanda on here to start a blog...?
