Last night, we visited the Mesa LDS Temple Christmas lights. It was beautiful and so fun for the kids. My aunt and cousin randomly called and invited us to go while we were eating dinner. I love the Mesa temple lights, so I was down, of course. We finished eating, bundled everyone up (it wasn't even that cold, but you know how we do in AZ), and headed down Main Street to the temple grounds to meet up with everyone.
Fox was a little tired -but not cranky tired, luckily. He just wasn't real enthusiastic or anything. But Sloane! Oh, Sloane loved it! The whole time, she kept exclaiming "Look!" and "Oh!" and "Wow!" She was amazed by all the colorful lights. And she loved gently touching as many as she could.
The Mesa LDS Temple lights are up until December 31st, everything is free, and there are live musical performances every night. Last night was a high school choir (they looked like high schoolers, anyway), and it was beautiful. Along with the lights, there is also a nativity set up and other displays depicting the story of Christ's birth. It was a great way to start off the Christmas season.
