We are getting sealed!! It's becoming more and more of a reality everyday. I sent out announcements to family, we received our stuff to go through, we are reading all things we are suppose to...and it's just all so exciting! The only thing I'm worried about is whether Bee is going to be good or not. He loves his pacifier! So that's what I'm hoping and praying for is that he will be good long enough!! Is that something Mom's worry about on a regular basis?? I know when I leave Bee with a babysitter, that's a big part of my thoughts during the time I'm gone, is whether or not he was good!
I'm so excited that my father-in-law is coming up here to go through with Chris. I was really hoping it would happen. Even though he is only up here for a minute, I hope we'll be able to show him some of this beautiful state. Any suggestions on where to be tourist at?
It's really kinda of fun to think that my family will be sealed for all time and eternity. That I'll be with my little man forever!! Oh and Chris too! Hahaha Maybe that should go the other way around! :) J/K
So if I was nervous about this whole thing, it would be about Chris and Bee. Chris because he is a perfectionist and has a hard time letting go of his 'norm' and for Bee being good for the time we need him. I think the main reason I'm not worried about me is because I have a wonderful escort, Mychel, that will help me. I don't know what it is about her but she just makes everything okay. She just calms me down and has a great presence about her. She is just wonderful! I'm so glad that she is here to go through with me.
I'm so glad that we have such a wonderful support system in the Church. It would be harder to live up here without it. Even the people back home support us here, with their little words of encouragement. We are so grateful for us guys!
So for those of you that can come, it's May 16 at 6:15pm and our sealing is May 17 at 11:00am at the Anchorage temple. I know babysitters are going fast. We would love to have anyone that can make it, come! And anyone in Seattle that wants to come, we have a couch left! :) If ya can't, just keep us in your thoughts that day.
I'm so excited!!
