Well, one of Kurtis' dreams came somewhat true a couple of weeks ago. He was able to be on the video production crew for a Temple Celebration and Dedication. He did not actually get to be behind the camera but was asked to assist the JIB operator (the picture is of the JIB that Kurtis helped with) and he was treated as though we were a part of the crew, not just a volunteer. He had fun. This makes two of his dreams fulfilled. He has had sometime employed by BYU-Idaho full time on their production crew before we move to AZ and now he has been able to help out a little with a Temple celebration and dedication.

My little brother, Jakey, was there as well. He had the once in a lifetime opportunity be in the celebration. He did a really great job. The celebration was very well done and there was a lot of talent.

The ending of the celebration was pretty cool. You can't see it too well in this picture but by the end of the last song all of the participants had on white capes and there was white material streaming throughout the lines of kids. The effect was to make it look like they had become the Temple. It was really very neat.

While Kurtis was down in the Gilla Valley, he was able to see the Cornerstone Sealing. This is a representation of the Cornerstone of The Church, Jesus Christ.  Below is a picture of the Prophet and the Temple President.

On Kurtis' birthday, we took my best friend, Twilight, and went down to the Gilla Valley Temple open house outside of Thatcher. Here is a picture of Kurtis driving. His driving is so rare simply because of his work schedule, so I took a picture of it.

Here we have a picture of my best friend since first grade, Twilight. I was trying to take a picture of her without her knowing and without looking from the front seat. I got quite a surprise and laugh when I looked at the picture to see if I got her

The following are some of the pictures we took while we were at the Temple. In case you are wondering how much hairspray I use to get my hair into such awesome styles, here is your answer, NONE! It is all natural, by way of wind.

Here is a picture of the Temple. It is quite small but very beautiful. Just like with the Rexburg Temple, a Prophet saw this one being built and said that it would be one of the most beautiful temples ever built and though it is tiny it is magnificent.

After we went to the open house, we had a picnic in one of the parks in Thatcher and then we got on our way to take Twilight home. We went through the Salt River Canyon which is where this picture of Twilight was taken. You can see our car in the background, in case any of you are wondering what our car looks like.
