Christmas Devotional

Last night we were able to go to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional.  This was the first time I've ever been to the devotional (BIG HUGE THANKS to Connie for sharing some of her tickets!)  I loved listening to the MoTab choir and orchestra and as always loved listening to our Prophet and First Presidency.  For those who watched/attended, didn't you love President Uchtdorf's talk and reference to "How the Grinch Stole Christmas?"   
I realized that Nick and I have never seen the lights on Temple Square together and this is our THIRD Christmas together! I don't know how you get through Mormon dating/courtship without visiting Temple Square- isn't it some sort of requirement?!  So afterwards we walked around Temple Square, of course this was probably the worst night to do that because everyone else had the same idea so it was PACKED!  Surprisingly the weather was warm which caused this odd fog in the SL valley but made for really cool pictures of the temple.
Yay for the Demke girls!
