The phone rang a few hours after we got home from the twins' birthday party Monday evening. It was about 11pm and I had just finished making Den's lunch for the next day. He had given me a new IPOD for my birthday, so then I decided to download some 60s music for my grandchildren to dance to next time they would be over, when I heard the phone.
An 11pm phone call is usually bad news so I braced myself.
When I heard McKay's voice I immediately asked if he was okay. He's use to me. He said he was calling with some good news. I said, "Oh no."
I don't know why I said that.
He told me that he proposed to McKenna and they are ENGAGED!
Den and I are very happy for both of them.
Here is one of the songs I was downloading at the time of McKay's call. Maybe it's just me, but I think it fits. Even the line, "That little chip of diamond on your hand aint a fortune baby but you know it stands for the love, a love to tie and bind us..." (since he gave her an $8. ring from Walmart, for now :)
Well whether you think the song fits or not, it was what I was listening to when McKay called, so I think it will always remind me of the day of his proposal.
I'm so happy he found the girl of his dreams.
April 12th must be a lucky day for our family.
McKay and McKenna...it has a ring to it, wouldn't you say?
