Thank you everyone!!!!
She is 19 and he is 18.... We have homeschooled him through highschool and he is now an electrical apprentice...
She graduated from public school and works at a local department store. He went and spoke to her Father prior to asking her. The way proposed was so cute..
He took her to the local Mexican restraunt.. our favorite... because she had never been there and he likes to take to do do and try new things..
So under the assumption that trying a new restraunt would be fun... he sat dawn and asked her "IN MEXICAN" to marry him..She was clueless.So he said it again.. Still she is like "What! What are you saying I took German in school"
That was the cue for the waitress to come out with the BEAUTIFUL!!!! bunch of roses and set them on the table saying "Dear he is asking you to marry him"
He gets down on one knee and she just started crying....The rest well, she said yes.
Great girl I dont think I could have picked a better one myself.
Both of them are strong Christians and love God . Her parents and us have both spoken to them about decisions like whos church they will call home..no pressure but just so they think about these things and make some decisions BEFORE they get married. They will be doing the counceling and talking to Pastor in a few monthes I'm sure......
Our son is putting $500 a month away for the wedding dress and ring.... They dont want an extrav. wedding just simple and yet elegant.

I do have. We have two older sons and a younger daughter. My daughter keeps running around (she is 13) yelling
"I'M GONNA HAVE A SISTER" I think she is excited too!
Our other boys 22 and 20 are just going to continue to pray and wait for God to send the right girl!!

No complaints on my part!!

For snowflake wedding cakes just go to the search area and enter Snowflake wedding cakes. There are a number of pictures and forum entries about making snowflake cakes.

I thought some words in Spanish mean something different in Mexican.

Spanish is the language itself which is spoken all over! So every culture has different words for different things. I'm from Mexico and if I went to...let's say Argentina, I would probably not understand alot of words since each culture add's its words. Just from one state to another it's different!! I went to Mexico City (central Mexico) in May on vacation and I'm from Sonora (north of Mexico) and I didn't know alot of words too! And we have a different tone of voice. Kind of like people from the South versus someone from New York. I guess we make the language our own. icon_biggrin.gif

Congratulations! I was married at 19 and my husband and I have just celebrated our 21st anniversary. We kind of "grew up" together starting out that young (he was 24), and there were times I wondered what kind of crazy mistake I'd made icon_biggrin.gif , but I do believe our strong spiritual beliefs are what brought us together, and kept us together. Again, congratulations!

Callyssa,
That is great...But you know there are always thoes days where love isn't enough..It is more than that and I believe IF you TRULY both love the Lord and trust in Him then all things work out.. I have gotten a bit grumpy at times with my hubby but I know he is a blessing to me from God and wouldn't exchange that for anything!

tirby, thank you ... I just used regular royal icing for the snow flakes ... I don't remember how many I made exactly, but I know I made a LOT .. the snowflakes on top of the cake are just royal iced onto sticks and put into the tops of the cakes, and then all the snowflakes around the edges of the cakes are only 3/4 snowflakes, so it looks like they are sitting on the top of a layer and the sides of a layer of cake if that makes sense ... the ones around the base are just 1/2 snowflakes ... I am sure you could get a snowflake pattern off the internet and then pipe royal onto wax paper over the template ... if that helps thumbs_up.gif

tirby Posted 11 Nov 2008 , 9:34pm

that does help! I think I will see howmany they want on the cake and the style they choose before Ido to much. I was going to order a cutter BUT... If they only want 6 snowflakes then no point. But if they want it covered.... I think I will be VERY busy the week of the wedding icon_biggrin.gif

Congrats! How sweet of a proposal is that. icon_razz.gif
I was married 2 weeks after I turned 19. He was 21. I was given a lot of grief about getting married young as well as my family members. We're still together 11 1/2 years later. Young love is grand.

Have fun with all of the planning. Congrats again.
