a birthday celebration

Tyler and his family are leaving for NYC on Monday night, which means i won't be with Ty on his birthday (Thursday the 11th.) we decided to celebrate early, and i planned quite the night for us last night!

to start off, Tyler and i went to the temple. it was particularly cool because Tyler was Endowed (more info, HERE) 2 nights ago, which means he got to baptize me. it was one of the coolest things i have ever experienced. he is amazing.

i made a massive fort in my basement with lots of blankets hanging from the ceiling // dangling Christmas lights // cut out white stars hanging from the ceiling // & a nice round table in the center with some lit candles. we had a homemade meal served by my siblings. he loved that. we opened presents and even had his very favorite cake + candles for him to blow out! my 19 year old (well, soon to be!)

after dinner, we bundled up and headed up to Cornbelly's! they have a really scary haunted forest (well, i think it's scary. supposedly Tyler says it's nothing compared to other haunted houses) and we also walked through the corn maze. it was freezing but we loved it

 happy birthday, love
