A Christmas Surprise

Lance came into town on the 26th with a little more than just the Baker Family Christmas party on his mind. Towards the end of the party when everyone was chatting around a bowl of peanuts, he suggested that we exchange Christmas gifts. I shrugged it off, and suggested that we wait until everyone left. He agreed, for a minute and then asked again. In short, we exchanged gifts. He handed me a heavy square box and I opened it. Inside was a digital picture frame box with a 5lb weight inside. Feeling almost as embarressed as I thought he would be after forgetting to put the frame back into the box after uploading pictures, I turned to Lance. He looked confused, and just as quickly and I became confused, he was down on one knee asking me to be his wife. Here come the tears and of course the words he wanted to hear. I SAID YES!!! It is official Lance and I are getting hitched....tying to knot. We are so excited and look forward to a wedding, perhaps sometime this fall. Thanks so much to everyone for their love and support. The De Jonge family just keeps gettting bigger!
