our Christmas date

Photobucket

Temple Square always has beautiful Christmas lights so we thought we'd have ourselves a little Christmas date.
We shopped, we ate, then walked around to see the lights.
Then it started to snow.
You would think that should've made the night very romantic.....
but a million people + snow = 1 very ornery husband.
So I didn't get all the pictures I wanted.
And the pictures I did get I don't really love.
But that's not the point.
Christmas is only a couple days away.
Spending this time with my husband and loved ones while celebrating Christ IS the point.
And that's exactly what I plan on doing :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Snow makes me cranky in general as well, but looking at pretty Christmas lights would have made me feel much better! The trees looks like they have red sparkles. Beautiful pictures!

So pretty! I'm half jealous of the snow...since we haven't had any! But I'm trying to remind myself that it'll be below freezing and snowy before and longer than I want! Merry Christmas!!
