A match made in Heaven





The first weekend of February was the most wonderful weekend ever!!! We could not have imagined a more perfect time ever. First my parents flew to Florida and we had the chance to show off our beloved Gainesville. We, of course, took them to see Alligators, which they loved. Then we took them to swim with Manatees in Crystal River. In our humble opinion, this is one of the best things there is to do in all of Florida. We have been blessed to live so close to this wonder.
Now to the main event. On February 2, 2008 Justin and I were able to be sealed to our son in the Orlando Florida Temple. We feel like the luckiest people in the world to have Evan in our lives, and even luckier now that we will be with him forever. It was so beautiful to be in the sealing room, surrounded by family and friends. The coolest thing is that our sealer was one of the first missionaries in Chile with Justin's Grandpa. By far the best part was when they brought Evan in. He looked like an angel, staring around the room with wide eyes of confusion. Then they put him in my arms. Anyone who knows us knows that we are big cry babies. It was then that both Justin and I really started to flow. Evan looked up at me and smiled during the sealing. It was amazing!!!!!! We had lunch afterwards at the Yellow Dog Eats Cafe (we LOVE that place). The next day Justin got to bless Evan in church. It was beautiful to watch and I started to cry all over again. I can't believe how much Heavenly Father loves us!!!

All that crying was so embarassing!

Just kidding.
