An Announcement for the New Year!

With this being the first day of the new year I think it appropriate to share an event that we have been anticipating for quite some time now!

Trevor proposed to Thelma on Christmas Eve and was accepted with much joy on her part!
Yehaaaw!!! :o) Imagine the excitement that ran through our household when they announced it at Christmas Dinner! Well, at first we all thought they were joking (the manner in which it was announced was very deceiving) but as soon as Momma started shrieking we knew it was for real! :o)

They are planning a March 28th. wedding and have made allot of progress in their wedding plans. Dinner time conversation has consisted of suit fittings, which groomsmen are walking with which bridesmaids, and wedding etiquette... all this while Mom and Dad have been gone!

As a friend put it to me, "just think, you are gaining a sister!"; I hadn't thought about it that way but yes, now Thelma will be more than a friend, she'll be my sister! It's a good thing we look alike!


The next twelve weeks will be incredibly busy... our "Family To Do List" consists of painting five rooms-maybe, finishing the stone room, sewing-sewing-sewing-sewing-and more sewing, and a host of other things (I think there are twenty-one to do's on the list!). Ahhh, adventure is ahead!

Happy New Year!

They are a lovely couple and you're right she does look like you.

Exciting!
