Eternity is forever!

We went to the Temple today and sealed Malia to us for Eternity!! We arrived pretty early and the whole thing went pretty quickly and then we went outside for some pics. The weather was so beautiful it was perfect for pics except the sun in our eyes which made for some poor eye pics. I didnt get 1 good pic of Malia which Im way bummed about, she really just wanted to run around so I didnt get a good one but she looked so sweet in her beautiful white dress and she did so well in the Temple as did Kaden and Maddie.
I feel so full spiritually and so blessed that not just for death do we part but for FOREVER we will be together. I love that we will never have to be seperated and that we will be together after our lives here on Earth. Its such a beautiful blessing and gift that we have been given.
We had a lot of friends show up for us which I appreciate so much, we didnt have a lot of room for tons of people so we didnt invite a ton of people but appreciate the well wishes we got. I love that our friends showed up for us though, it was so neat walking into the room and feeling so much love. Seeing the kids dressed in white put me to tears instantly it was a beautful day!
After we left the Temple we went to the Korea house for some cultural food! It was so fun and everyone that went got pretty adventurous with their food, especially the kids. There was octopus and squid and all sorts of creepy food that I didnt dare touch but sounds like it was tastey! I didnt hear of anyone complain about the food... except Maddie who had soup and got a sore throat immediatly so Im pretty sure there had to be egg or something peanut so I hurried and gave her a bennadryl and she seemed to recover after about an hour YIKES!
Malia LOVED the noodles of course and the rice and the vegies! Shes such a good eather I love it!
So we had so much fun and really we are just the luckiest people in the world to have great family and friends supporting us. We love Malia so much and this day was about her and I think she felt special, she looked so darling too!!
To my non LDS readers if you ever have any questions regarding my religion Id love answer them, I understand how some of this talk might sound weird... promise its really not!
Love the beautiful Temple shot! To bad people wouldnt get out of the way!

Talk about the best Mom's day ever! Just think where you were at a year ago with the whole process. It's been awesome sharing all the Adoption milestones with you! It's so much FUN!

Having never been a part of something like that, we also wanted to say THANK YOU for letting us join in. Nothing has changed in terms of your love for her, but the knowledge that the journey has now finally come full circle is a miracle. Whatever possessed you that day over a year ago to look online at her specific photo was driven by God.
