the proposal

Christmas has officially come and gone! But I am happy to say that this was easily the best Christmas i have EVER had. Christmas Eve was so far, the happiest day of my life! I worked an eight to five shift which wouldn't have been my first choice to spend my Christmas Eve but somehow I survived. I went straight from work to the Santa Clara Christmas Eve program where all of the Santa Clara families get together and the kids aging from 4-12 participate in a program. This is easily my favorite tradition. The little kids are such a hoot, and its also a fun thing for our family since my dad participated in the same program when he was a kid. I must say the home videos make for a great crowd pleaser! After the program we {usually} head over to my grandma gates' for a soup and breadstick dinner. Apparently Alex had other plans in mind. I have been begging to go look at Christmas lights and that is just what we did. We headed over to the St. George temple, and then over to Grandma Esplin's house due to her amazing view of St. George, then to an unbelievable house that i may have made Al drive around twenty times because I was in love with it! We finally made our last stop up on Foremaster Ridge where we used to go have late night chats. We talked for a while and then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Excited is an understatement, I cannot wait to marry this cute boy he is the greatest thing that ever happened to me! 

This was right after we got engaged and spilled the news to my parents! Alex and my dad decided to be really sneaky and not tell anyone that he had already asked my dads permission so no one knew it was coming! I really feel like the luckiest girl in the world and I am so excited to spend the rest of forever with this great guy!
