Patrick's Proposal

Patrick proposed last Friday with the help of his five beautiful kids. We've been spending time with them these past months getting more acquainted. Friday he invited me over to his place after work to join them for movie night. I was prepared for another night of good laughs when he surprised me with a wonderful greeting leading up to the big question. (He's such a romantic and I love it!)

He had everyone there with six big lilies, one from each of them and the sixth from Patrick. He said some wonderful things, which I will treasure always and then proceeded to ask me if I'd marry him and that the kids and he wanted to know if I'd be the "bonus" mom. I said yes. (Of course).

The boys made an origami ring for me with a big flower which we fastened on with some string. The next day I was greeted with a box of starburst and red hots in a handmade box with a note that said you are the "star" and we are "red hot" for you. They really made me feel special. I am honored by their affections.

The whole weekend was all-around enjoyable with a sweet feeling between all of us. We celebrated with a trip to the skating rink on Saturday, noshed on snacks and played around. The boys went to see a movie and I took the girls to the store for some girls only time. Sunday we attended church all together, which was a first for us. I fixed us dinner and we played games while visiting.

Now that our news is out, I'll start to share more about our story and where we are headed. The kids are amazing and we grow more at home with each exchange. They live with their mom nearby but will be visiting us every other weekend and throughout the week as schedules allow.

Patrick just got a promotion and title change from Regional to National Sales Trainer for Beldon Enterprises. He's rocking it and on the road building the skymiles account. I am really proud of him and the opportunities that seem to constantly come his way. We are excited about our future and new life together. Thanks for your well wishes and congratulations.

Hopefully, pictures to follow soon.

Patrtick and Tessha,

I am so happy for you! I called you and left a mesage for you. Gaylin and Pam are serving a mission in the Portland Oregon mission. He is over the cars and over the appartments. Pam works in the mission office. You might have them over to your treehouse some night for dinner.
