There is Going to Be A New Member of our Family . . .

....and no, I am not pregnant.  Why is that what everyone always thinks of first when this type of announcement is made?

The Newest Member of our family will be Elena, the girl Chad brought home for Thanksgiving.

Were any of us surprised?

Uh, no, not at all.

She is a great girl who will bring lots of fun and joy to Chad's life.

The wedding will be next spring, sometime in April.  And they are getting married in the Mesa temple, as is the tradition for most of her siblings (she has 7).   Woo hoo!  I love that girl!  (And I love Arizona in the springtime!)

The ring.... congrats, Chad and Elena!

Can I come to AZ with you? Please??

Woo Hoo! Congratulations! The Hubs and I got engaged on Decemeber 28th and married April 23rd- that's a lucky day! We'll celebrate #15 this year!

Enjoy the plans and excitement.

Oh- and I have a book recommendation for you to get them. It's called "1001 Questions to Ask Before You Get Married". Now is the best time to get a solid foundation under them for communication etc. Any mistakes they can avoid in the first year or two will save them MANY years of heartache later on. The Hubs and I got pre-marital counseling and it really helped start us off in a great way.

This is Elenas big sister, Heidi. I wanted to see what kind of family Elena was about to merge into, so I (being the over protective big sister) wanted to check it out. from what I see and read on this blog, I just wanted to let you know that you seem like a very sweet and caring (carey, haha) (ok, sorry) family. I hope to meet you all in the future. I wish Elena and Chad all the best!

Congrats! I hope all the plans come together well so the wedding will be just what they dreamed of, and then the marriage can be full of eternal and celestial joy.

Yay! Congrats! We are getting a new girl too... our son proposed over Thanksgiving, and the wedding is in March! and I have no idea what we are doing. >oo< But it will be fun. :)

Hey, if you get a chance (and you haven't already...), stop by and check out my blog for my new music for 2011. I would love some new followers and comments to get me started! Love, Victoria
