The Christmas season is always such a joy to me!
I love seeing all the decorations and lights, and changing 
things up around our home.

And I am so thankful for God, who gave this world
the gift of His Son, Jesus~~whose birthday we are celebrating!

This year we have something else special to celebrate...

The engagement of our daughter Brittany!!

Love this photo of her!

God has blessed her {and us} with the most wonderful young man!
His name is John and he is a young man of honor, integrity, respect,
and is so much fun to be around, too!

They make an absolutely charming couple, and are
so totally in LOVE!

It is so cool to meet the young man I have prayed for
since Britt was a little girl!  I didn't know who he was,
but God did!!

He proposed to her at a local park a little after sunrise,
and surprised her by showing up in a tuxedo!
They spent the rest of the day at Disney World,
and wore the "Just Engaged" buttons 
and were congratulated the whole day by the park's

I sooo love seeing how God just works all things out for good 
for His children!!

We have our "meet the soon to be in-laws" dinner tonight!!
Too much fun!

Have a lovely afternoon and evening!
I will post my Creating Christmas gift idea tomorrow!!
Just been too much going on!!
You can relate, right??  :o)

Congratulations to Brittany and John!! And, to you Mom!

It's so wonderful when our children meet someone and they are equally yoked. So many people do not understand that, and you cannot make, or change, after marriage unless they want to believe. I am so happy for all of you!

This will be such a wonderful Christmas season for them! Have fun meeting the new side of the family!
