We are having a good vacation. It is hard to believe that it is almost over and time to head back to Rexburg for our final semester. We have been keeping busy shopping, playing games, and just hanging out with Mike's family. We had a wonderful Christmas and I had a good birthday. Then the day after Christmas we had a chance to go down to St. George to get our new car. Our other car died and it was time to get a new one. Thanks to my aunt we had the chance to buy her car which is an upgrade from what we had before and we are grateful to her for that opportunity. So we had fun hanging out with some of my family in St. George. My dad and his fiancé drove our new car up from Texas so we got to see them and hang out a little bit. Then we came back here to Provo for a week to hang out and then head back to Rexburg. We had a good New Year's Eve. Mike's Aunt Cathy made a yummy dinner and we just hung out and played games until midnight. Then we welcomed in the New Year. It was so much fun. We will just finish up the week and then head on back. That sums it up for our Christmas Vacation. Hope everyone has had a safe and good Christmas season and a Happy New Year.

Mike and I on New Year's Eve

December 27, 2007

So my Dad asked Nelwyn to marry him on December 27th. Here is a picture of them in front of the Dallas Temple where it all took place. So here are the details of the day... (This is Nelywn’s description of it all.) Well, after Mike gave me my Christmas presents and had Corey take pictures as I opened them which included beautiful pajamas, an ornament with our pic in it, pearl and diamond earrings, a pearl bracelet, a barbie doll and a race car (he doesn't miss anything he gave me those things because I loved it when I got those things for Christmas when I was younger), and a CD from Corey of songs he had recorded (which I love listening to, thanks, Corey!) and a beautiful plaque from Jaime and Ashley and Boston (Thank ya'll, I love it!) - In my heart, I was sad because I thought I wasn't going to get proposed to yet - Then he said, "I need to go and get something from the Temple." I didn't really think anything of it because it was Thursday Night, the night he generally works there. I wasn't dressed to go in the Temple so I walked around out front and reminisced about standing on the front steps of the Dallas Temple with my friends taking pics together after they had received their own endowments (the Dallas Temple was my Temple district for years when I lived in Louisiana) and he took my pretend engagement ring from me and said he was going to get something to make if fit better. When he came back he handed me a box and when I opened it and saw the most beautiful ring (real one this time) that he had picked out (with Julie Mecham's approval - thanks Julie) I put my arms around his neck and didn't move - I was so overcome with happiness. He then got on his knee and asked me if I would marry him and of course, the answer was "A Resounding YES!" He gave me a dozen red roses.
