Engagement, Part 2

I apologize for waiting so long to post my part 2 but I have been super busy with school.
However let me not keep you waiting.... So after the whole process of Rhett asking me to marry him, I still thought we all were going out to eat that night on our double date. Nevertheless, I was wrong, but yet I don't know it yet. Rhett told me to ride with to his parents house to drop our cars off. (Rhett's truck, my car, and Heather's car...Jason's parents dropped him off at the engagement site.) On the way to Rhett's house, I tried to call my mom and my sister duplicate amount of times. I received no answer. I finally was getting anxious because I wanted them to know so badly. I finally received a phone call back from my mother and she said she was outside watering the flowers and Anna, my sister, was at her boyfriends house and she finally called me back. They were both extremely shocked (they are good actresses, by the way) and wanted to see my ring. Rhett had said they could come up tonight when we got back from eating and they could all see my ring. I knew my parents would wait till later that night to come up because of the Alabama game. I already knew Dad would not want to miss it, being the BIG ALABAMA fan that he is. We soon were arriving up to the Walker's house and Rhett was very touchy to say the least to me. Let me explain, he kept asking me to turn towards him and to give him kisses and that he wanted to see the ring. When we pulled up to Rhett's drive-way he wanted the BIGGEST kiss from me, I thought, awww...he is the sweetest. However, he is the sweetest but yet he was distracting me because when I was opening my door I had noticed that his grandparents on both sides were at his house.

I was showing Neena my beautiful ring. She loved it!!!!!!

My future Mother-in-Law and I

I just thought maybe they came down to eat dinner with Mr. Larry and Mrs. Cathi that night, which isn't unusual at all. I was excited for them to be there though because I got to show them my ring and tell them the story, which they all knew it was happening. Mrs. Cathi told me she had some presents for me in the living room, and oh my goodness it was the greatest presents to receive on your engagement day..... my WHOLE family was in the living room. I was in tears!
This was my reaction when I first saw everyone in the living room.

I was very emotional to say the least. My mom was giving me such great words of love, she was so happy for us.

Showing my Aunt Bonnie and Nana my ring. They were both just as emotional and happy as I was. My Nana and Pawpaw came straight from their vacation in Gatlinburg to Centre, AL to celebrate this day with us. Thank you.

This is my Pawpaw, the most amazing man on this earth. He gives me so much wisdom. I admire him. He is the man, whom I wanted to find a husband like and with the power of God, I did! It was also his 70th birthday as well as my engagement day. I love him, his smile, above else his love towards God and his family.

My sweet parents got me flowers and a balloon. There is my sweet Dad and his beautiful SMILE. He is so happy for his oldest daughter to find such a great guy like Rhett :)

This is my future Father-in-Law, Mr. Larry

My precious Grandaddy Pope, even came to celebrate this special day with us. It saddens me because I wish my Meme was still alive to celebrate this day with us. I know she is happy for us up in Heaven. Oh, how I miss her. 

My family

Rhett's Papa told me that I was going to find my ring in a Cracker Jack box. He's too funny!!!

My future Sister-in-Law and her husband, Jason! I love these two so much.

Isn't this the cutest cake? Thank you Aunt Mary for this amazing engagement cake.

I just love this picture of Rhett. It shows his true expressions and his happiness. I am so thankful and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him. I can't wait!!!!
