We got back lastnight from our 2 weeks away and returned officially engaged!!
Chris decided to get down on bended knee and finally propose while we were gathered at my mom's . My sister and her family was there and mom and her hubby. I had no idea he had planned it that way nor did my family. My mother was touched and later told him how much she appreciated how he honoured the family by sharing that moment with them.
OH and btw, I said YES!!!! LOL (like anyone doubted it lol)

Can u tell we are on the top of the world? HEHE.. Yes we are both very happy and yes we are on a mountain top to boot lol...we are in a resturant that is literally ontop of a mountain in Banff.

We spent precious time with my family...I will sneak a pic in here of my mom (she would so kill me lol ) shhhh no one tell her k... but my sister reads my blog so I have to ask her first if I can subject you all to her beauty...

here is my mommy

This is Brandy my sister (by adoption) and her family, taken at their lake cabin an hour from Regina in Saskatchawan...Her hubby Kirby had a great idea about us hiding behind the trees lol...their son Mason is 4 yrs old and couldn't get enough of being close to his older cousin Cleo lol

What the hell, here is a pic of my sister and her hubby...she can sue me if she wants lol....

In fact I will save her the trouble of sending me a retort by posting this pic I know she will appreciate lol....I love you too sis.

I noticed as I loaded all the video and photo's taken with my new little cam corder that I was more often filming things then taking actual pictures...from the magestic rockies

to the splendid prairies of Saskatchawan.....

There is so much to see in Canada with something special in each province , I was only in Alberta and Sask this trip...I have far more video then pics but I will be sure to add more eventually.

After all this, the thing to remember is WE ARE ENGAGED!!! Finally after 3 1/2 yrs of waiting ...damn, at 42 yrs old, I am not getting any younger lol....bout time I actually had a ring on that finger in this lifetime haha!!!

hugs 0x0x0x
