They're Engaged!!!!




Look at these two!! Don't they make a beautiful couple? My son proposed to his girlfriend last night, and she said, "Yes!" There was a squeal or two in there as well. Her name is Anna, and we couldn't be happier to be adding her to our family. We already love her and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for their lives together. He took her to Lake Michigan, they had a little picnic, and their mutual friend Hannah had I Love You done in paper bags with candles in them. Then Alex walked her, with her eyes closed to another location over a small hill, turned her around, and was down on one knee, when he told her to open her eyes, then asked her to marry him. Which, was followed by a squealing, "Of course, yes!!" No, we weren't there, but my son has it all on video. Taken by friend, Hannah. It will be fun to start the planning, doesn't seem that long ago, but my husband and I will celebrate 25 yrs next year. Wow. How time flies. They are bouncing around town today, telling everyone, and have made lots of phone calls to out of town relatives. We are all very excited. Congratulations Alex and Anna! We love you both!!

Congratulation's to the young couple and on your upcoming 25th. I just had a grandson marry a pretty young lady that he meet while visiting us one year. The excitement kind of makes you feel young again. We gave them a picture of the church they meet and married in. It was very nice and I claim responsibility for the idea even if it was my wifes. You can see something like it here.
