Josh and Ashley are engaged!
My brother Josh proposed to Ashley on her 21st birthday! It was so sweet! He threw her a 21st party at his house and asked me to help make a "bank" cake and record him saying sweet things about Ashley. So on August 23 Josh skipped church to help me decorate the cake while Ashley was visiting her family in Tampa. After 5 hours in the kitchen and a very messy kitchen at that we were finally done! I don't have pictures at the moment because Ashley has my SD card to get pictures printed but once I get it back I'll update this post with pictures.
So Josh asked me to go to his house so I can record him talking about her and I had no clue at the moment he was asking her to marry him. I was in complete shock.
Monday came and I was able to get off work early to decorate his house before everyone showed up. Her parents were there as well as mine, my grandma, aunt, cousins, her "aunt" and "uncle" and their kids and her cousin. It came time to bring out the "bank" cake and she loved it! I have the best picture of her seeing it for the first time. I can't wait to show y'all. Then it came....
I played the video I recorded just the day before and Josh proposed! She said "YES!!!!"
They want a very short engagement and were hoping for a November wedding but FBC,Jax makes you go though a 6-8 week engagement class plus other things on top of that which would push the wedding into Feb.2010.
We went dress shopping this past Sunday and she picked out the most beautiful dress ever. We also got out bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses. She asked me and well as her sister-in-law Nicole to be her bridesmaids and Haley and her niece Faith to be the flower girls! I cant wait to help her plan this wedding.
I'm so excited for both of them and can't wait until they start their life together as one!
