Day 12... Mesa Temple Christmas Lights

Day 12 Mommy took the girls on a Christmas Lights adventure at the Mesa LDS Temple.

They have over 750,000 lights. It is beyond gorgeous!! Every sidewalk, every fence, every piece of ground cover and shrubs, every tree, every pillar. EVERYTHING is wrapped in lights. Not to mention the temple has these back lights that shine on it and light it up like a beacon at night. The place was truly beautiful. Just look at these pics I took below...

Ryen and I watching the fantastic choir!

It was so nice to be able to meet our friends Jessica, Jackson and Elizabeth at the Mesa LDS Temple. I just love Jessica and her kids so much. :)

And my little mischievous one had way too much fun sneaking into the display area where she was NOT supposed to be. Just look at that face!

And her little voice tugged at my hand and said "Merry Christmas Mommy" at one point. I just about melted. I had never heard her say that before, and she just did it on her own. It was so adorable.

and no I am not playing favorites... Ella was NOT in the picture taking mood, which is why she is in hardly any of these photos. :( Here's a few...

And Jess and I paused for some cute photo ops

Remember what I said about the temple being backlit. Look how it came out in pics.

And I just love this photo of Jackson.

My kids and I had a blast and cant wait to do it again next year :)
