Christmas and Engaged!!

Our christmas day was wonderful! We slept in, and hung out in our pajamas for the better part of the morning and early afternoon. We watched A Christmas Story and then started cooking our Christmas dinner. We made garlic mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, corn and BBQ’d steaks 🙂 After dinner we watched the movie Love Actually because my grandma had never seen it and it’s one of our favorites! Afterwards, my grandma went upstairs to go to bed, and I told Brandon I was sleepy too. He asked me if we could stay downstairs for a little bit because he wasn’t ready for bed. He went to the basement to get his laundry and I curled up on the couch to read my book. When he came back upstairs, he sat next to me and we just talked by the Christmas tree. And then Brandon says, “Are you a little bummed there were no presents this year?” and I replied, “No, it’s not really the presents that make Christmas, but I sure did miss the shopping and the wrapping etc.” And then he said, “Well, I actually do have a present for you,” and he went to dig something out of his pocket and I didn’t even realize he had gotten down on his knee. And before I knew it, there was black box in front of me and I thought I was going to faint. I don’t really even remember what he said, but I did catch the “will you marry me” part 🙂 For some reason, the first thing I asked was, “Do my parents know?” and he laughed and said, “I will answer all of your questions, after you answer mine.” Of course I said YES!!! This picture was taken a few hours earlier in the evening in the exact spot he proposed 🙂

And for those of you that are interested, here is a picture of the ring although it doesn’t do it any justice! It’s absolutely gorgeous and sooo sparkly 🙂
