He Went Down on One Knee!

.
For several years our oldest son, Kelly, has been dating Cathy.

We all LOVE Cathy. We've been waiting patiently (OK - - - who am I kidding! There's been NOTHING patient about ANY of us) for him to "pop" the question.


A couple of years ago, Fisherhubby gave Cathy this HUGE diamond and said, "If my son isn't going to ask you to marry him, I am asking you to marry our FAMILY!"

Oh, there were grins all around, and the kids took it well - - - but you know, interfering parents are never really welcome.


Two years ago Kelly even posted this photo on Facebook - - - leaving us to all wonder, "did he or didn't he???" I mean, our son would definitely do something wild and crazy like getting married in Vegas and "forgetting" to tell us about it.

But, as it turned out - - - he didn't.


This time it is for real!!! Last night, he went down on one knee and popped the question. He had already asked her father for her hand.

She was shocked. She was speechless.


But she found her voice long enough to say YES!!!

We are so happy, so pleased, and so excited to welcome you into our family, Cathy!!!

NOW it truly is MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
