    Just wanted to let you all know that I am OFFICIALLY an engaged woman as of about 6 a.m. this morning! Just a little run down of how it happened...

    Part of my mind was thinking he might do it today, but he totally psyched me out up to the last minute and I honestly figured he had other plans. All he would tell me about my presents this year was that it was a "theme". When he kept making trips out shopping and coming home telling me to either stay in another room or downstairs, I started wondering. I just thought, oh well..he'll do it when he does it.

    Well, this morning after we helped the kids get all their loot unwrapped (no small accomplishment around here) he disappears for a minute. I didn't even notice. But then I see him come down with this GORGEOUS tri-level carved jewelry box. Its huge and just beautiful. He puts it down at my feet while I'm sitting in a chair in the living room. Now y'all my mom and step dad as well as HIS dad were here..they came over early to see the kids open everything. Well, he tells me (with them all looking on) "Open the drawers." Well, heres when I think "OK, my ring..he's got my ring in here.." First drawer...this BEAUTIFUL diamond bracelet. I sigh. I lift it out..play with it and all that...he's not saying anything, so I open the second drawer...its this gorgeous Past Present and Future pendant. You know with the circle within a circle within a circle. Well, I'm just blown away. Starting to feel bad about only buying him some Chicago Bears paraphanalia (lol) at this point. So anyway, I see that he's still standing there, so I open the bottom drawer....and...NOTHING. Zip. Zilch. Nada in it. I figured immediately "Oh well, he must be planning to do it some other time." Just as I look up to kind of play off the fact that I was expecting at LEAST another gift in there (ha ha), here comes one of our daughters (keep in mind, they are only 2 yrs old) and she's just barreling around the corner.....and in her tiny little fingers is my ring. She runs up, holds out her hand with this adorable expression of accomplishment and when I take it from her I'm just screaming "ooooooo oooh oooh!!" Well, there was a lot of hoopla ofcourse and since so many other people were there I have a feeling he maybe didn't finish the way he wanted. We just hugged and kissed and took a minute to show the ring to everyone.

    But guys, a few minutes later, I go on about the business of being a mother of quadruplets on Christmas morning. So I'm in the kitchen making breakfast for everyone and Bill walks in and says "So...WILL you marry me?" Just in this dead serious voice. Ofcourse I say, "Yes, absolutely I will." and here I am with my pretty sparkly on my finger as I type this.

    I am SOOOO HAPPY. Today just reminded me all over again of why I am with this man and how much I want to officially become his wife in the eyes of God and everything else under the sun. He's just so sweet and he took it so seriously even though we've been living in sin for long enough to have forgone the niceties. He's so good to me and I am just so blessed.
