On Saturday, April 16th, our family had the opportunity to go to the temple and be sealed together for time and all eternity. The temple was beautiful and it was such a perfect day.
We had a few bumps in the road getting there, but we made it! Last week we went to go get our stuff to go through when we realized Brian's recommend was not signed by the Stake President. I am glad we noticed before we got to the temple. We also found out the there were no shoes for me in the entire state! They were sold out everywhere! I finally ended up getting some Friday night. My sweet friend Megan found them for me. She grabbed me the last pair! So glad she was looking out for me! The last thing that happened was Averie's dress. I bought her dress a couple of months ago online. I finally decided to try it on her Thursday night. It was HUGE. It looked ridiculous. I was in no mood to try to alter it either. I got this idea to try her blessing dress on her, and surprisingly, it FIT!Isn't that amazing?! I was so happy that she was going to be able to wear the same dress that she was blessed in. It is such a special dress!
We were supposed to go through the temple on Friday for the first time, well Brian's work had other plans. They decided to send him to California for the week instead. It was so much fun to deal with all the drama while he was gone let me tell you! I am just grateful he made it home safely.
The day of the sealing went perfectly. The weather was wonderful and everything flowed so well. We decided to get a few pictures before we went in.

Andy and AmyLyn. Luckily, AmyLyn did not go into labor in the temple. She did say that she was having contractions though. Hopefully, Easton will wait until next week to come. She is just finishing up with the semester.

The sealing was so amazing. I can't describe the joy that I felt that day. It was like everything was the way it should be. When my mom carried Averie in it was so sweet. She was completely fast asleep. Not what I expected. I expected her to cry or to be really talkative and loud, but not asleep. It was precious. She slept until it was over. When she woke up she was looking up at the chandelier and she looked like a princess. Now I know that she will forever be mine. Brian will forever be mine. We will always be together and that sounds really really good!
I just want to thank everyone for their love and support. Forgive me for my faults during the past few months. This has been such a crazy time for me and I really appreciate everyone's patience and help. I couldn't have done it without you!
