ida turned 3 this week.  we had a little family party tonight where we opened gifts, had some cake and danced.  kids like to dance, i like to dance.  we had a good time.  we love ida so much.  she is spunky and smart.  she is a good girl and has been a pleasure to parent over the last 3 years.  our family is pretty complete because of her.

happy day honey.

moroni finds a new home

yesterday we stood out in the freezing cold for a couple of hours with crowds of others to see the construction workers place moroni on top of the calgary temple.  well worth the frozen cheeks, nose and fingers.
