Ogden Temple Open House

The LDS Ogden Temple has finally been reopened after almost two years of renovating (if you can call it that, I'm not sure what was kept from the original):

We were able to attend the open house as a family before it was rededicated.
"The temple lifts us, exalts us, stands as a beacon for all to see, and points us toward celestial glory."
 (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, n.d. Web. 15 Oct. 2014.).  The temple is a house of God, a place where heaven and Earth meet, and we can feel close to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  It's a place where we make sacred covenants.  I am so grateful that we live very close to really so many temples because all over the world not as many have that advantage. If you are interested in learning more visit here. 

I love all these boys of mine!

 There was a visitor's center type tent where we got our picture taken.
James is a HAM!!  Oh he makes us laugh daily:)

It was Jason's birthday that day and we got to spend it with him and Emily at the open house before having  birthday dinner that evening at Kathy and Alan's home. 
And the boys loved their new shoes so much that was the footwear of choice:)
