He Popped the Question

indexThis was a big weekend for our family……and an even bigger weekend for our daughter Kaylee.  On Saturday Kaylee said “yes” when her boyfriend Alex got down on one knee and asked her to become his wife.

We sat back and watched them work through the difficulty of maintaining a relationship while living 9 hours apart.  We listened to Kaylee as she shared her plans to move to Lynden to continue her college up there and be close to her boyfriend.  Through tears we watched her drive away with Alex in early September with all (well half…..the other half is still in our garage) of her worldly possessions in the back of her pick-up, not quite sure what the future would hold……

Fast forward to Christmas.  Alex, officially asked Dave for his permission to ask Kaylee to marry him……and then on Saturday, January 24, 2015 he asked our daughter, our precious Super Redhead Girl the question that will change the rest of her life………and she said YES!
