Engagement Proposal in Mexico








He proposed early Thanksgiving morning...just after 12:30am. How grateful we are for the soon-to-be new daughter-in-law. Brenna Anne Jackson is her name and she is Matt's match in every way. We were so grateful for the time we were able to be together this Thanksgiving Holiday.....Wedding plans are in motion...call Matt for more information. I took pictures of some of our outings...the cow parade in the Centro of Leon, The Lion Fountain and CristoRey...Matt is learning patience. Last, is a picture from our Thanksgiving dinner. We had all 9 missionaries from our 2 wards and a couple of Interns from BYU working in Irapuato...Laurie and John. Laurie had been in Matt's ward at BYU so they were friends. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving Day for Bob and I.

Oh I have been eagerly awaiting this post. Brenna is a darling girl and they look so happy and natural together. Aren't you so excited for all upcoming wedding plans ? Maybe its good that it will be really quick since you will have to do so much from afar. Congratulations to you all. It's so exciting and the LAST for our families. Is that hard to believe or what?

HERMANA Y PRESIDENTE!!!

I had an urge to take a break from work today and I remembered your blog address. Hermana I am thrilled with the few things I had read here…what wonderful news about the engagement of your son, your participation with the temple rededication, the interviews and stories. Hermana this is just wonderful and it looks like you’re having an absolutely wonderful time. My best to you and Presidente (and Los Doxey and Los Bullock to the extent that you see them as well) during the wonderful estacion navidena de mexico. We spent new year’s day with the Doxeys two years ago and had a memorable experience en el paseo de la reforma enjoying the nativities shown everywhere. You and Presidente are continually in our prayers…we send our love and best wishes for a successful, wonderful baptizing month of December. Love, Jeff Jardine (et al.)
