Merry Christmas – Salt Lake Style

Hooray for Friday night Date nights! :)  A while back I decided to try and get tickets to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert because one of my friends from high school (also a friend of ours from college) was going to be dancing.  I was excited when I actually got the tickets in the mail! (It didn’t hurt that David Archuleta was going to be in it too, right?)  We set the date, and invited Darrell’s mom and dad to come with us.  One thing we learned: the entire world is in love with David Archuleta.  We heard that we needed to be early to the concert, so we made great time getting downtown, but Darrell’s parents got stuck in miserable traffic for forever.  We made it into the conference center about a half hour before the concert started only to find that there were no seats left!! Turns out that they always overbook these concerts to ensure that every seat will be filled.  In other words, all the planned “no-shows” showed up!!  So we headed across the street and got to watch the concert via broadcast in the Tabernacle.  It was a wonderful concert. We even figured we had better seats there than we would have in the back row of the Conference Center balcony.  We decided to get some pictures of the beauty of Temple Square, and ourselves, of course. :) And a big shout out “thank you!” to my sister for watching the kids!!
