An Exciting Announcment

Some of you have caught wind of the news already but tonight we are making the official announcement - Candace and Michael are engaged to be married on November 10th. They have been talking about marriage plans during the past week but he officially proposed in front of most of the family tonight. He has passed the test (with flying colors I might add) of all of the men of the family - including her father, uncle and grandfather. Every member of the family is excited!
We went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house tonight and once again enjoyed the treat of Michael's playing and singing. He played a couple of his original songs and then we all sang some worship songs together. Grandma sat across the room with tears in her eyes. Even Grandpa, who eyes everyone that is interested in his granddaughters suspiciously, approves.
I will tell more of the story later, but tonight I'm running on very little sleep from the crazy weekend.
