Sister is ENGAGED!

Johhny asked Steph to marry him on Wednesday, December 5th...which also happened to be their 6 month anniversary. We absolutely LOVE Johhny and are so excited for the two of them to get married this summer! 
Johnny was very, very sneaky about the details of the proposal but included me enough so that we could plan a meeting with them afterwards to surprise her and CELEBRATE of course!

 a few wedding magazines wrapped in CHERRY ribbon ;)

 It was so fun to be able to give my sister a wedding magazine that actually had one of my wedding pictures in it! My wedding photographer, Amy Herfurth uses one of my bridals as her advertisement so it's always in D Magazine and several others :)

 I somehow managed to convince my mom to drive to Dallas with me on a school night for a "surprise" Christmas present. She thought I was going to tell her that I was pregnant again. Hah-She had no idea and was SO surprised! I LOVE being sneaky!

 Had to reenact the "OMG I'm engaged!" pic from when Ryan proposed to me in 2007!
...My how we've changed! And yes my hair is dark-still getting used to it!

Aren't they the cutest?! 
Can't wait for them to be Mr. and Mrs. Cherry! ;)

It looks like he's holding a snowball. *wish*

Thanksgiving Recap

...better late then never, I guess. 
Whoa! My baby has changed so much since this time last year!
Thanksgiving 2011                                                                                     Thanksgiving 2012

We spent the first part of Thanksgiving visiting Ryan's family in Abilene. 
 Gavin and his cousin Paizly had a lot of fun chasing each other and playing outside on the farm.

 We walked around our alma mater ACU and of course we took a picture at Kojie park! :)

 relaxing with Honey and Dude.

Then back to Dallas for another Thanksgiving celebration with my family who traveled in from Wisconsin, Missouri and Minnesota!
It was a whirlwind weekend filled with...
...crazy girls black Friday shopping from midnight until 5am!
 ....building towers with Papi
...some cooking with Gigi :)
 ....and some good sister time!
What a fun week! 
Now on to Christmas ;)
