Our trip to the Oakland Temple

Our family minus Isaac who was running around with a friend. We had a ward F.H.E. at the temple. We went to see a limited exhibit entitled, "The Healing Power of Jesus Christ." It is several sculptures dipicting Christ's ministry and miracles. I wish you could go and see for yourself. They are amazing!!! She gives such and intimate view of the Savior in her sculpting. It strengthened my testimony as I was reminded of the miracles of love and mercy He performed throughout His life. It also reminded me all that He has scarificed in my behalf and all that He has promised to those who will follow Him. I know that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is true. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that Joseph Smith is and was a true prophet who restored the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and can be used as tool of guidence in our lives. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our Prophet today and that he talks with God. I know that because of Jesus Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the cross that I can have a forever family. I know that Moroni's promise (Moroni 10:4)that if we "ask with a sincere heart,with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you". Again, I know that He lives and that we are blessed when we are following Him!
You can view the sculptures on her website, obviously it's not as good as it would be in person! (the link is at the bottom of this post)

All the little kids had sticker missionary name tags and took a tour on the temple grounds.

Eliza & her dad

Here's the link,

Eliza on "time out" & other pics

Eliza is a frequent visitor of the time out chair.

We had to find a time out place for her with some padding. She likes to scream and throw her head around. I figured she's already had enough head trauma in her life no need to add to it. The only drawback is that it might be a little to comfy for time out purpose's....?

That was one long time out! Happy girl once again!

Silly faces

One cute, cute boy!

No Eliza didn't do anything to Smith (this time) she's actually trying to console him.

More Hair pics of Eliza

This is definitely picture worthy, you'll soon see why!

In the mouth it goes.

Then she shows you what she thinks of that.

She is then nice enough to give it back to you, daring you to try all over again. That's my sweet little girl!
