First of all, thank you to all for the prayers and well wishes for Aaron. His surgery Friday went extremely well. In fact, they sent him home Friday night!! (Which still has us amazed!!) His pain has already gotten better. The surgical pain is there and he still has a lot of healing to do, but definitely headed in the right direction!!
Ryan and Mallory put on an Easter egg hunt for all of us on Saturday. I didn't do so well.. but mostly because I was so cold!! (And that was even wearing my winter parker and fingerless gloves!!). With much assistance, I did manage to find 8 of the 9 eggs they hid for me.
I offered Sumo some of the eggs I had found.. but he preferred his rawhide. Go figure. (Next year we will have to put some milkbones in the eggs!!)
But, the most EXCITING egg hunt came later in the day. Ryan had hid eggs all over town for Mallory, with each egg holding some chocolate and a clue to where the next egg was hiding. The final egg was in his pocket and held... A RING!!! And on one knee, he asked her to be his, and she said YES!! We could not be more thrilled!! Since before our children were born we have been praying for their spouses. Mallory is above and beyond those prayers and hopes.
Ryan had also arranged for Mallory's family to be at our house when they came in to announce it. With a quick hug, we sent Mallory into the living room to 'call her mom'. Instead, of course, there was her mom and dad and sister to get the news in person.
Yes, we are blessed.
Praying you all had a Blessed Easter!!
Until Next Time......
