Welcome home Nate!

Ashlee and me

Melia and Uncle Austin

Woohoo! Nate is in the house! lol Yep so last night we got surprised by Nate catching an earlier flight. It gave everyone just enough time to race down to Ontario to be there when his plane arrived.

A little bit older and wiser and definitely skinnier! So the pictures tell most of the story, but here is the narration. A big crowd of spectators clapped and hollered with us when he came down the escalator. My sister raced to him and they could not stop hugging and kissing - normally anyone would offer the phrase of "ewww go get a room!" but for the circumstances it was very sweet.
And just when you thought things were fantastic enough, Nate says "Since I didn't do this the right way the first time..." he then bowed on one knee and asked my sister to marry him! Oh man it was so cute. He put a big ol' rock on her finger and the spectators went crazy! It was so fun! So of course she said yes - and this post will continue on Monday when they are going to be married.
