NATALIE IS ENGAGED!!

In the wee small hours of this morning, my number 2 baby girl got herself engaged! This is my first time on the mother of the bride roller coaster. Wish me luck! His name is Ben and he is from Utah. He is a great young man and we are really excited to get to know him better. It is hard to be so far away, here in Montana, from all the happenings but I am excited all the same. I am pretty sure it was just yesterday she joined our family and now she begins her own. I love you Natty Gan....
I "borrowed" these photos from one of Ben's sister's blog here--she has lots more and some posed photos of them too if you want a look see.



THE PROPOSAL






SHE SAID YES!

THE RING

Apparently tackling the man is a part of the acceptance ritual

LOOK AT US--WE ARE ENGAGED!!!

She looks so incredibly happy! I'm so excited for them. It must be hard being that far away. Have you met him yet? I didn't meet Brandon until Brianna got engaged and he came to Utah but I had been allowed to read his letters that he sent her (yes, Brianna showed them to me so quit thinking I just snooped!) so I had a bit of an idea what he was truly like. It was so scary though sitting back and watching her prepare to marry him. Do you know when the wedding will be yet? Good luck with everything and you're right....it definitely is a roller coaster ride! Hang on tight and enjoy the ride!!

Connie said...

Congratulations to you and your daughter! Cute couple and I do believe tackling the fiance is part of the ritual!

Good luck with all the plans.
