Having an awesome time with Stephanie and EJ. They made it here safely. They took Grandma shopping shortly after they got here...so that got done. Had a nice dinner together at home.
Grandma didn't stay the night...but resigned that if she doesn't want to I won't push any more. Think she misses out...but it is her choice. Maybe she'll stay Christmas Eve.
Heater on the car went out so hubby working on it and we're driving Grandmas SUV.
Off to church in a little while and then home for brunch and decorate cookies already baked.
Tonight we go to Clifton MIll and see the beautiful lights...you never know EJ may pop the questions...he isn't sure where...son and daughter in law are supposed to be going too and Grandma...although she isn't in the "KNOW" about everything.
As an update EJ made it through security. Didn't want to put the ring in his checked luggage so wanted to carry it and didn't know how to get through security without her finding it. So put it in his jacket zip pocket...took it off and put it in a bin to go through screening...and then when it got through put it back into his pocket...supposedly without her seeing it. He thinks she thinks it's coming during Christmas...but not for sure and not sure when. (He's not sure when either) The excitement is fun. He and my husband put it in my jewlery case so he doesn't have to worry about carrying it around. Has made it fun for all of us being a part of it. Been keeping my best friend in Missouri updated and she is excited about it all too! EJ is a wonderful young man and it has been neat to be a part of all of it...as we will be a part of their lives together. He fits in well with our family and quite the gentleman. He mentioned last night that he's never been in a relationship where the families on both sides get a long so well and we're one big happy family. I know there will be bumps along the road...but it takes us all "together" to make it work!
Off to enjoy this moment in my life...
