Callie is ours...


forever. There's no ifs ands or buts. Not only did we receive the official legal paperwork stating she is ours, but on Saturday morning she was sealed to us in the Provo Temple. I can't explain how wonderful it is to know that it is official. Now, I think Callie is super cute. And when I got her dressed in her little white dress, I thought she was cute, of course. But when my mom brought her in to the sealing room....she looked gorgeous. There was a little glow around her. She was beautiful. It's a little strange; after a 1 minute ceremony she is eternally ours. I remember feeling the same way when we got married. It's just a short ceremony, and that's it. We're married. And it was the same with Callie's sealing. She was such a little angel during it. Oh, what a sweet sweet girl. Marcus's Aunt Holly has adopted 2 kids and has been through 2 sealings like ours. To celebrate that experience, she makes them a white cake with white frosting on their sealing day. I love that. I'm going to do that for Callie. August 16 -- what a wonderful day. We had to wait to give Callie her baby blessing until she was sealed to us, so today Marcus was able to bless her. It's just been an all around wonderful weekend. I don't have pictures yet -- we'll get some posted soon. (This small one is the only one we have right now.)

There is almost nothing as sweet as seeing a child sealed to their parents. I can only imagine how wonderful it was for you. I'm getting all emotional just thinking about it. Congratulations, hallelujah, etc. etc.

Congrats! I am so happy for you. What an amazing experience. We always used to go out to dinner to celebrate my sister's sealing to our family. But She was sealed to my parents before I was born so I didn't get why we always celebrated her "ceiling" and nobody else's.

That is so neat! We were just at the temple on the 12th doing sealings for our 3rd anniversary and I thought about how amazing it is to be sealed to a family. I am so so happy for you guys. I have never gotten to see a live ramily sealing before, but it sounds so special.
