*I Love to See the Temple..


~About once a week, my Mom takes the kids for a few hours and spends some quality time with them doing a number of things. They do anything from baking cookies, playing @ McDonalds playground, escapades to the dollar store, seeing the puppies at the mall etc.-You know all the things kids beg to do, but as a Mom you say:"we'll see." Well Grandma Kathy actually does them!
We call it "Grandma Day."

~A few weeks ago my mom took them into the Temple visitors center. They saw the Christus statue and played on the beautiful grounds of the temple. They loved it. She captured this little photo of them with Mesa Temple in the background. They know it is a special place and hopefully someday they will have that desire to "go inside someday."
~This next week we plan to go in the evening and see the gorgeous Christmas Lights on the grounds.

Am i loosing my mind? I thought i just read something about your mom taking the kiddies to the temple??? Now it's not there. anyways, i just wanted to say HOW NICE of your mom. Not only to give you a break, but more importantly to build a bond/friendship with her grandchildren. GO GRANDMA KATHY! :) People keep asking what they should get marina for c-mas & her b-day ... i keep telling them that she remembers events or things they do together a lot more than she remembers any gifts. i'm sure you're kids are the same way...they forever talk about what they did, not what they got.
