San Diego Temple Christmas Lights

We had a fun evening visiting the Temple to see the christmas lights and hear christmas music sung by the children's choir and adult choir. The boys loved being there at the temple and hearing the music. Carter was all giddy and excited to see the temple up close. He calls it "mommy and daddy's church", since he knows we got married there. It definitely made it feel more like christmas being around the temple with the lights and music. I just love the holiday spirit that goes around during this time of year!

Sawyer walking at 14 months! He started walking 100% about a week or so ago.

Sounds like a perfect evening to me. I loved the pictures. It looks like a fairy land. Carter and Sawyer are so cute holding hands. Such good buds. They are the most adorable kiddies ever. Hip Hip Hooray for Sawyer walking. I didn't know that. He looked so proud of himself. I loved your family shot. I miss all of you Collins' and ILYT. oxoxox

I never remember going to see the lights during Christmas time. They're beautiful! I think it's hilarious that you guys are all bundled up in your coats... There must be a 50 degree difference between the weather here and the weather in SD. We hardly ever put Ethan in his pea coat. But he often dons his winter hat. Totally cute little guys.

cutest little family shelly. I was going to let you know that bobbi went in for surgery this morning. They found a few cists (?) in her fingers and removed them to test for additional cancer. Anyways, she would probably love to hear from a good friend. She's coming home for the next 6 weeks to recover. Let me know if you need a number or whatever.

Hi Shell! Wow, I don't check your blog for a couple days and look at what I miss!! I LOVE seeing your pictures and imagining the Brown clan get together. What a fun holiday. I'm just sorry that we weren't able to hook up while I was in SD. Also, I have a little (very late) birthday/ Christmas/ first baby girl package for you. I'm calling you right now for your address....
