Edowments at the Timpanogos Temple

Samantha received her endowments at the Timpanogos Temple on April 16, 2013.  She was so excited that as soon as she got her mission call she went to her single's ward bishop and asked when she could go through the temple.  His reply was that she needed to take the temple prep class to which she responded I already have.  He advised that it be closer to her mission date.  So she waited.  A week before she was down to Spanish Fork and we went to get some garments to make sure that they would fit.  We purchased a pair that was just right.  The next week I went and purchased 8 more pair.  Little did I know that I had purchase the mid-calf size.  She and I drove along on that morning and it was still dark and quite.  We had a good visit and then listed to church music.  She was soooo excited.  We went into the temple and she went her way and I went mine.  When we joined back together she said to me "I did not realize that we had to wear difference garments in the temple"  I said "we don't".  Then she told me that I had bought the mid-calf and that she just had to hike them was a good laugh.  She also had a very spiritual experience regarding Grandpa Ballard which I will not write about here but know that she had written about it in her journal.  The day was glorious surrounded by family.
