Christmas Party at Temple Square

Last night my company had our yearly Christmas party. This year we had it at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It was nice as always. Last night was also our ward Christmas party. We picked my work one for a couple of reasons, I hard already RSVPed to my work for the party before they every announced the party for the ward & more importantly they were going to give me Prime Rib at my work party. I love Prime Rib! I don't eat a lot of beef, but I do love a good Prime Rib on occasion.

Dinner was pretty good. For dessert they gave us creme brulee. Tom & I tried this for the first time on our anniversary when we went to Log Haven, an amazing experience for those of you looking for a swanky dinner place in the Salt Lake Valley. The Creme Brulee we had at Log Haven was AMAZING! The one last night, not so much. They burnt the top of it unfortunatly. I scraped off the top and ate the custard underneath. When this dessert is well made it is delicious!

The dinner was at 6:30. Everyone was worried about being able to find parking because of the construction going on downtown and the big concert that was happening that same night at the conference center. Tom & I went down early to avoid this possibility. We parked our car at about 5:30 and spent the next hour walking around temple square. We had the added blessing of it being raining while we were there, which was great for my cold! But the lights were pretty as always. My favorite part was probably the international nativity scenes. I love different cultures! It fascinates me!
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.
Aint We Cute!

Mmmmmmmmm, I love Creme Brulee. Probably my favorite dessert (if it's not burned).

It seems so odd to me, but great, that you live so close to temple square. Growing up that always seemed such a far away almost mythical place to me! How cool to drive a few minutes and be able to see it all in it's christmas lighted splendor:) Love the pic of you and Tom!
