So I am sure most of you know we had a horrible house fire in Jan. Our camera was destroyed in the fire and so I don't have pictures of anything from the month of January. It stinks too, because we went to Florida for 10 days and had a wonderful vacation. We celebrated Chris and Missoni's birthdays while we were down there and really had a wonderful time with his parents and getting some much needed sun. We also got to see some good friends and Missoni loved playing with their kids. It was a great time.
Then we returned to Michigan and well we all got strep throat and felt terrible, especially mommy. I have to give a shout out though to the Farmington Hills ward and especially Sister Gibirt for all the help and love they gave us after the fire. Also to Missoni's preschool moms from Mayfair. May God bless you all for your kindness. We are now getting settled and Missoni is doing swimming lessons, ballet and a sports class right now. Thanks again to everyone! Hope all is well with you all!
We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
