First this week I will be sharing with you my BIG NEWS...my sweet daughter Haley got engaged Saturday afternoon out on the beach in front of our condo and this is one excited MOM! Haley and her fiance Cam have known each other since they were in the sixth grade...they met at our church and were both very active in the youth department. They spent years just being friends...that was until June 2006 when the both of them were living at the beach for the summer and the next thing we knew...it all changed and they started dating! At the end of the summer they both went back to college and the big problem was...they didn't attend the same college...even worse...they attended rival schools...Haley is an AUBURN gal and Cam is an ALABAMA guy...now that could be a huge problem, but not with these two...they handle it very well...they just try not to talk about Auburn/Alabama football too much because they are both HUGE fans of their teams and so are both families! They both have now graduated from college and have jobs in their fields, so they are all ready to spend the rest of their lives together as a married couple. Mr.CC and I are so happy to have Cam join our family...this young man is a wonderful Christian with great values...he will make an awesome husband and father...that's all we could ask for. Cam talked to Mr.CC last Monday and so we both had a long six days to keep this a secret (believe me...that was one hard thing for me to pull off...but I did it), Haley was sooooo surprise...she had no idea and that's just how we all wanted it. Cam had his two sisters there on the beach all dressed in disguise and walking behind them, so they could get the proposal on video and some pics...job well done...Haley never saw them as they were hiding behind sand fences! Cam asked for our help to get her down to our condo...so we had to come up with a reason for her to go...yes we told a little white lie and soon after Cam asked the BIG question...her comment to him was...I can't believe that my parents have been lying to me all week! Next surprise for her was that both families were waiting for them at their favorite restaurant to celebrate with them...I don't think this poor girl could take anymore surprises. After all the celebrating that has been going on...it's now time to get to work and plan this WEDDING...I'm just so excited to share these upcoming months helping Haley plan her BIG DAY!
Now let's get on with this weeks NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS party! I have a few Christmas items to share...whatcha you got to share? Don't forget that I'm having a PART TWO of my CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE this week on the 16th...hope to see ya there!
