Make Me Smile Monday-Two big smiles for me this week!

Well, I am grinning from ear to ear...can you see me?????

We are getting a new soninlove! Our youngest daughter got engaged on Saturday and we are beyond excited!

Meet my baby girl, Marti Leigh and her fiance David.

 YES, our whole family was in on the surprise.We knew two weeks ago this was coming. David, being a man of honor and respect came to my husband several weeks ago to ask for permission to marry our daughter. Now, I must share a little funny with you. About the time David was trying to ask my husband this important and nerve wrecking question my husband was standing by the fishing pond with his SHOTGUN fixing to shoot a moccasin! BRAVE MAN is all I know to say! 

Needless to say we (as in my other two daughters and myself) have kept it a secret but oh was that ever so hard to do! 

And I would say that David has very good taste too wouldn't you?

 YEP...we're in planning mode already!!!!! My girls couldn't get their dinner down good before they had the Laptop out!

Now my 2nd reason to smile this week......

This same young woman will be celebrating her 28th birthday this coming Wednesday but we celebrated a few days early! Especially since we had an engagement to celebrate too!

 Her favorite...chocolate cake with chocolate icing.

 Happy birthday to our baby girl....

God is good and He is good all the time! We're so grateful for His blessings.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Congratulations to you daughter! What a terrific week you have had... blessing to you all!

  8. Congratulations!!!! I can't wait for the day when I get to say something similar around here. (We don't even have a man in the running right now so it will be a while.) Is this daughter the school teacher?

    She is so beautiful, and he is certainly a brave man to ask the big question while Dad is holding a gun. LOL My husband did his asking on the golf course. I guess the threat of a 5 iron isn't as significant as the threat of a gun shot.

  9. OK, did my comment just disappear? What did I click now? Good grief, Debbie.

    In case it did, I said CONGRATULATIONS (and a whole lot more because I can't seem to stop myself from constant commentary.)

  10. Your baby girl is beautiful! What excitement! Her ring is gorgeous.

    You will be busy planning. Enjoy.

  11. Cindy - congratulations! My! Your daughters are gorgeous!!! What beauties - and of course - such a beautiful mom! Blessings to you all as you plan for the big day. Glory!!

  12. Congratulations to the happy couple - and to you! She is a beautiful gal and I'm sure they will be blessed more than they can imagine.


So glad you stopped by to visit.
