She said yes!

Our daughter Heather has been dating a really nice, Christian young man for a while now.  A few weeks ago, he talked with Bob, and asked for our approval for their marriage.  So - we knew a proposal was coming, but didn't know when.
Last week, Heather and Andrew both had vacation, and they scheduled a day trip to Chicago.  They took the train down, early in the morning and came back late at night.  That evening, after supper we had a phone call from Chicago, saying he asked - and of course she said yes!
Heather is a history lover, so one of the places they went was the historical museum. In the last exhibit room, he got down on one knee and proposed.  That was the perfect place for her!

Doesn't that ring look pretty on her hand?


I think the ring is gorgeous!  It has a somewhat vintage look, which again, is perfect for Heather.


I dragged them out into the backyard to take a few pictures.


And I snapped this one when they were goofing around.  They're a great couple, and we are all so happy for them!
Now, let the planning begin!

I have to share a few coincidences about our family and Andrews family.
His name is Andrew, last name is Scott...
Our son is Andrew, middle name is Scott...
He's marrying our Heather, and has a sister named Heather...
My Bob is really a Robert, he has a brother named Robert.
Pretty funny, right?

I'm so excited for you, Mari! Another grandchild and a wedding coming up!!

They are just adorable!

The name thing is really funny. Really, that happens quite often. My brother is Jay Richard and I married a Jay Richard. My brother named his first son Jay Richard. For years all three of them worked in the same automotive repair shop! My niece Katie married a Matthew. She also has a brother Matthew and her husband has a sister Katie.
