I'm Engaged and its Going to be the Best Christmas Ever!

I can't stop smiling. Do you recognize this Elf family?


The man of my dreams... the one God created just for me and my girls... asked me to marry him.

He gave me his grandmother's wedding ring. I loved his grandmother.

I love him more.

I said yes, of course.



On Christmas Eve, surrounded by our immediate family, we're going to say I DO with his dad, the pastor, officiating.

Then we're going to have a big Christmas lunch with turkey and smoked ham and change into our elastic-waist pants and slippers and play games and drink hot chocolate and open gifts with his family until long after the sun goes down.

And then, we'll come home, where he'll get to wake up with us on Christmas morning.


I can't think of a happier way to spend Christmas.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You just made my whole week (and I don't even "know" you!). I am supremely happy for you, and thrilled to know Michael is as smart as he is good looking! He is not only taking care of YOU, but giving these precious girls of you a chance at seeing what a great relationship can look like (in watching the two of you). SO SO happy!!

Sounds like a perfect Christmas and a wonderful way to start your life together. Best wishes to you!

I'm only a friend of a friend, but I've been reading your blog for a really long time (originally to keep up with Annie updates) and I just have to come out of lurking long enough to say congratulations!! I honestly had chills reading your announcement. Praying that the Lord greatly blesses your marriage!

Congratulations! I hear you're expecting too! What a great yeaar it has been for you. . .a wonderful man and a new baby on the way! :)

Nope! Absolutely NOT expecting... yet, anyway. I assure you, though, that we'll put every possible ounce of effort into rectifying that situation as SOON as possible... AFTER the wedding... and hopefully birth at least half a dozen more genetically perfect bundles of joy as fast as God will give them to us. :D

AFTER the wedding.

Meanwhile, we're only getting married because we want to spend the rest of our lives making each other happy and after spending so many miserable years, we don't want to waste one extra day getting our Happily Ever After on!

But thanks for asking. Always good to hear from you! ;)

Melissa from the Blue House said...
