💍

Hi friends! This news could not wait! 😁 Our oldest son Jacob and his girlfriend Kristen called after dinner yesterday. When I picked up the phone, they both broke into 🎵the Happy Birthday song for me!🎵 So sweet.  As we talked, Jacob asked me if I heard that music in the background. I said yes. He said, "Do you know what that is?"  I said, "No". He said, "Listen." I said,"Going to the CHAPEL!!!!!! WAIT!!! Oh my gosh! That means you proposed Jacob?!"   And so he did. 😁 They want to get married in October. A very small outside wedding(COVID) at the home of her parents by a pastor.

Brian and I could not be happier. Kristen is a lovely girl. My entire family loves her. My Stepdad met her at the hospital before he died in January.

We have yet to see "the ring".💍 Blasted COVID! We will!

Plans, plans,plans! Weight I want to lose! Yikes!😬 I gained some after the seven months of not being able to use the treadmill daily. It really wrecked things.☹️ And I am not good at starvation diets. I am far from "fat", but I do have a tummy now and I don't want it!!! I know, I know.

Off to pick floss and linen for an engagement piece I want to make them.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” —John 13:34-35

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Vickie, Your family is growing and I am so happy for you. October is my favorite time of the year especially since I was married in October on a beautiful fall day. I can see your fingers getting busy to make things for them. It is wonderful that they told you on your birthday. You couldn't have a better birthday present. Enjoy your day and I will enjoy my day with family.
Hugs and Prayers Shirley

Wonderful news Vickie! And how nice to tell you on your birthday. I am sure they will have a most wonderful October wedding.
Don't worry about the tummy, as soon as you resume your walking routine it will disappear.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful news. Best wishes to the happy couple! I'm sure you will choose a great chart. I did a wedding sampler for my niece but it wasn't really wedding I wanted one they could always keep up.

Best wishes to your son and future daughter in law! I hope you love your daughter in law as much as I love mine. She's like the daughter I never had. I know that sounds cheesy but it's true. I hope you'll get to see them soon!

That is wonderful news! I am so pleased you have such a happy event to look forward to.
I think to keep the numbers down, they should have poodle attendants instead of human bridesmaids!
