I Love To See The Temple!

Woooohoooo I am 31! No matter how old I get I will always love my birthday. Its a day to celebrate ME! I get all the attention and everyone makes me feel special. My sweet mom made me a pineapple upside down cake for the first time in 20 years. It is my favorite cake and I was just thrilled. There is a reason she hasn't made it for me in 20 years... I decided to have a food fight with the last one she made. I did have it cleaned up before my parents got home but when it came right down to it I just couldn't lie to my parents about where the cake went. I also got a homemade Icecream cake from Kara; it was really yummy. It was fun spending time with everyone.
I receive many wonderful gifts this year but the most wonderful birthday present was making covenants with my Heavenly Father. Tuesday, February 24th I took out my Endowments in the Rexburg temple; it was closed on my birthday February 23rd. It was the most wonderful day of my life. I was surrounded by family, friends and the spirit. The next week I went to the Idaho Falls temple. It was lovely. I hope to visit every temple in the US.
