His dad had a little fun with his Granddaughter's doll hat! I'm so glad both of our families enjoy having fun and being silly! Makes it so much fun!
Evidently Rhees and his sister have a tape war every Christmas. This package was wrapped in packing tape. However, my strong husband tore into it like it was nothing! It think next year....it's on Jennifer!

Then we enjoyed a nice evening tonight of carving pumpkins. We did this last year and wanted to keep up the traditions. Rhees always comes up with something wild, Necia is very original, and I'm pretty safe.
Rhees: Scary face and taiko symbol
Necia: Lady Gaga
Rebekah: Trick or Treat
I love doing fun things with the people I love: Creating Memories!

We had so much fun eating hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and sno cones~! Yes, a little chilly for sno cones but we have this awesome guy that has a sno cone shop and they were delicious!
Yep, never thought I would see this in my life time! Necia wearing a football helmet! Doesn't she look cute! Of course it had to be pink!
This is our pastor going DOWN! All of the pastors were so good about this. It was so cold outside and they stuck with it!
We played two games and tied. Yea!!! Sadly, the third game he won. :( Yes, I'm just a little competetive! I just wanted him to feel good about his athletic ability! I'm so nice like that!

Well, if you don't know Rhees ..I'm the luckiest girl ever!
He is my man who:
laughs with me
spends time with me
prays with me
opens doors for me
cooks with me
teaches with me
loves my daughter with me
is a dog lover with me
serves with me
and enjoys our families with me
So, yes he is an amazing Godly man! So, now what you were wanting to know about~ here is how it all happened.
We started our evening with sushi from FUJI. Because all great nights start with sushi. We enjoyed each others company and had the most amazing food at the sushi bar. Then we went to LaFortune Park ( we have a spot with a picnic table and pond that we always go to ) and enjoyed the ducks and the sun was setting. There was also a couple that was enjoying the view also and we really tried to wait until they left. But they weren't going anywhere so they got to enjoy our special moment too! Rhees had brought a large box with him. I wasn't sure what was in it and tried to guess but I wasn't successful. He opened the box and pulled out a CD player. And I thought well duh!!!! why hadn't I thought of that! He is the Music teacher.....of course there would be music involved! That was the big surprise. He also had a video camera and set it up so that we could remember this evening for the rest of our lives! So, he started the music and said that he had been waiting to play this for me because it reminded him of us. Then yes...He sure did!!! He sang to me! It was truly the most perfect moment! Every word was from his heart! And yes I did cry of course! Then he pulled me down off the table and got down on his knee and asked me to marry him! And of course I said YES!!! Then he prayed with me and it was the most peaceful feeling that we both had!
I can't tell you enough that God has an amazing plan for you! We know that waiting on God has been the most rewarding experience ever! Then we decided that we needed to celebrate with some desert. So, off to the Cheesecake Factory for some Appe Crisp. And here we are with our big smiles!!!
I have been looking at my beautiful ring every day and still can't believe that I'm engaged!! Well, the next story I want to share with you is about the *Bling*
We had looked at different styles and I showed him what I liked but he picked it out and added his own special touch. One thing that he really remembers about his grandma was a diamond necklace. It was eventually given to his mom and she was wanted Rhees to have it when he was ready for it. So, I guess he decided that I was that special girl. ( I love that boy) He took that special diamond and put it in my ring. I feel so honored to have this beautiful ring for so many reasons!
I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!
P.S. I'm thinking that the new title for my blog needs to be Memory Lane !
( if you don't know..our last name will be Lane isn't that soooo perfect! )

First step was buying the material and some wonder under. I ironed the wonder under onto a small piece of fabric big enough to cut out one capital R.
Then I stuck this to my Cricut pad and cut the letter. This was very exciting to me because I have been wanting to cut material with the Cricut but didn't know how. Well, You can learn all kinds of great things from You Tube!
And Ta~Da~ Here is my first initial! Yes, this really should have been the step AFTER I made the apron.....but I just couldn't wait! So, after all of the fun sewing lessons that went on and the apron was done it was time to iron on the cute initial. And even that was a learning experience. I figured out only after doing it wrong that you need to peel the wonder under off before you iron.
Use a damp cloth to place over the letter and then press it until it is secure to the surface. In my case the apron. Wow! And it really worked. This is so amazing! I'm just thinking of all the possibilities!
We started our day with the Philbrook Museum. Wow! What a gorgeous place! They had the mummy exhibit there so that was very interesting! Then we headed to In The Raw. YUMMY!!! We love us some sushi! This was an important memory that I wanted to bring back because he was the one who had me try sushi and I loved it! We had never been to this restaurant but it has a beautiful view of Tulsa! So, I was trying to go for the romantic date! We thought we were done eating there but I had a little craving that we had to satisfy first. I needed some chocolate!!! So, he had a great idea ....Cheesecake Factory!!! WOW!! This was fabulous! And we were sooooo stuffed! Lastly, we ended the evening at Philbrook again. They had a mummy movie on the garden lawn. We walked around the garden and even saw a little snake...yeah that was not my favorite part! It was so nice outside and the moon was gorgeous!

This place is just right down the road from us. Who would of guessed that we lived by such a gold mine.
There were rows and rows of blackberries! The little farmer there was so sweet! He explained exactly where to look for them and what to be looking for. Little Sweet Farmer Tip #1. Do not pick Red berries.
This is what NOT to be looking for. If you pick the red ones they will NOT ripen off the vine. So we are strictly looking for BLACK berries.
Little Sweet Farmer Tip #2. Get low to the ground and look in the shade.
Well, we didn't let these precious berries sit for very long. We went straight to the store to get stuff for making ice cream. OH MY.... that was the best ice cream ever!
