Temple Christmas Lights

Taryn is in the funny face picture taking phase..Silly girl!

Last week we enjoyed the beautiful Christmas lights at the D.C. temple. We chose to attend when one of the bell choirs were performing for Taryn. She lights up when she hears the Jingle Bells song and is in love with the bell ornaments that adorn our tree. She sat in her chair and pretending to play along with her own imaginary handbells during the performance. Taryn also sang along with all the Christmas songs she knows. I'm constantly amazed at how much her little mind can remember! She did get off her chair at the end of each song and ask Tyson, "Is it all done?" I think she was too excited to see all the lights outside :) We were so glad that is was only 50 degrees the night we went which seems so warm compared to the 20-30 degree weather we have had and will continue to have for awhile. 

"Singing for all the world to hear"

On the way home Taryn asked for ice cream which she's never done before (seriously.) It caught both Tyson and I by surprise so we caved :) It was already past her bedtime anyways....haha! 
We sang Christmas songs all the way home while Taryn used her ice cream as a microphone. She really knows how to sing those holiday tunes!


  1. Oh the lights are so pretty! I didn't realize that the D.C. temple did Christmas lights too. My favorite memories as a kid were when my parents caved in and bought ice cream cones for all of us. Extra, extra special was when we got to get toppers on the cones too!

  2. Love the DC temple at Christmas - so beautiful. You guys are soooo cute. Have a wonderful week and keep singing for all to hear. :)
