or the post where i talk about standing outside their front door with a video camera filming an extremely personal moment. love.. stalking- same difference.
our neighbors john and hayden got engaged last night!!!! and we got to observe, watch, stalk, be a part of the whole thing!
john wanted blake to be the one who gave hayden the ring. we decided to put it in blake's candy bucket and head on next door. blake asked hayden "trick or treat" and waited for her to give him candy- she had no idea what was coming next. after getting "one of each", blake shot me a look and i gave him a nod. he handed hayden a box. "what is this?" she asked and turned to see john down on one knee asking her to marry him.
IT WAS THE COOLEST THING! and i video taped it! i got so nervous and choked up and there is a part where i am shaking so badly i almost needed 4 hands to hold the damn camera still. i half felt like i was violating a very private moment, but the other half of me was so happy that i was able to video and take pictures of such a special moment for them. and another half of me (sure, i've got 3 halves) was so overjoyed that blake got to be a part of something like that. and blake loved it. he was so hesitant at first to even do it, but after he thought it was so neat. and he said, "that was the first time i've ever seen a grown up cry!!" he couldn't stop smiling. he even made up a song about it in the bathtub. i'd tell you the lyrics, but i forget.
anyway, it was a crazy romantic halloween for us last night! and hayden... your life will never be the same. welcome to wedding planning!
