Temple Square

I thought it would be another year before Abbey appreciated Christmas, but she is loving the lights. This is going to be an awesome Christmas season this year.

We took the girls down to temple square last weekend with Allison, Noah, and apparently the rest of the state. The little ones were sleepy and mostly just cuddled up into our shoulders until we went into the visitors center. As we made our way up the ramp to the Christus, it was particularly loud with all the families jammed in there, trying to warm up. When we rounded the corner, Abbey and Justin went straight to the statue. I was a few feet away, but all of a sudden, it quieted down for me and I heard Abbey look up and say,

"Jesus. Hi! Thank you, Jesus."

J told me later she noticed the prints in His hands. Now she's telling people He got his 'ouchies' from playing soccer. So...it's not all getting in that head correctly. But it's getting in there. And it did our parent hearts good.
