We Are Engaged!!

This Christmas Luke decided to give me 12 days of Christmas.... he started with day 12 on December 13th. He gave me the best gifts and was so creative!

This was day 12

Day 11

Day 10

Day 9
"On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...2 gangster objects that could very possibly make it so I only have nine fingers left after using em"
Sleds!

Day 8
"On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...protection for the most vital 8 lbs. on my delicate frame"

Day 7
"On the 7th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...a 7 piece what??"

Day 6
"On the 6th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...6 absolutely vital objects to every successful relationship"

Day 5
The construction paper chain was made by Luke. It was an engagement countdown that counted down from then until February 13th. Anytime in-between was fair game for him to propose!

Day 4
"On the 4th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...the hardware to entertain 3 of her most favorite people"

Day 3

Day 2
Day 1
"On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me...The Best Present Ever"
This was Christmas Eve. We went to look at the pretty lights at Byers' Choice-only to find out they were closed! Luke asked me if he could still give me my present there anyways and left me by the front entrance by myself while he ran back to the car. It seemed to take forever, but finally he came back with these gifts.
The gold coins in the box represented the money he was still waiting to receive in his tax return to pay for the ring- we planned on that being at the end of January or beginning of February. Then Braden (my brother), out of nowhere, walked up with a video recorder. That's when Luke got down on one knee and proposed!! I was in shock!
