As many of you know from yesterdays General Conference the church is going to be building a temple in Calgary!!! We are soo excited for this announcement. Even though Florida's temple is not too far away, we always found it harder to go, because it was definitely a day trip. Once we had a baby, it got even harder. Then we moved here and the temple is even farther away, and gas is so expensive. We have wanted to be more diligent in our temple attendance and now it is going to be so much easier. We are so blessed to benefit from this announcement.
It is funny though. In August 3 general authorities came to Calgary. President Eyring, Elder Holland, and Elder Anderson. Everyone was expecting major changes to be made, but they said they had just come to send the prophets love. Now we know it was probably also to buy land.
I tried to upload this picture of Evan earlier in the week, and it never worked, so here it is now. My in-laws got baby chicks last week, and they are the cutest things ever!!! I love animals, and we just thought that this picture of Evan was too cute not to share. He was a little afraid of the chicks at first (we put him in the pen with corn on his lap and he was bombarded by hungry birds) but soon thought they were pretty cute. Poor guy has had a rough week of dealing with his vaccinations. He seems to be on the mend though, which makes mama very happy.
