A new role in my life…Mother in Law!!

Remember me saying that it was a busy weekend?  I told you about Prom…I didn’t tell you that I moved Karl home from college…or that Kelli and Kayla were home.  There’s one more thing I didn’t tell you… Remember me saying that I had more news?  Well last Thursday it became official.  I’m going to become a MOTHER IN LAW!!  (or more appropriately, my daughter Kayla is engaged)

We’ve known since last Thursday but haven’t said much as everyone’s first question is always when and where.  Those are things we didn’t know for sure until today.  Kayla and her boyfriend Spencer are getting married on November 17th, 2012!  She has the church and reception hall booked…caterer too.

Now we are just on to the other details….wedding dress shopping in a week or two.  WOW!!  They have been dating for 5 years and I was beginning to wonder when they’d get married…now that they are engaged, it’s full steam ahead!!

I don’t know if I am excited about becoming a Mother in Law…the gaining Spencer part is great.  It’s the Mother in Law jokes I could live without.

    Congratulations to you all! Such a happy time. It hardly seems possible that my hubby and I just celebrated 12 yrs. Where does the time go? Best wishes to you all!

    Congratulations! I know you will be a super mother-in-law. I have two wonderful sons-in-law, both of whom I love and admire very much.

    You will be a great mother-in-law! Don’t worry, the jokes will quit after awhile. . .I would think! I can’t even think of a MIL joke to tell, so see? Nothing to worry about!

    Thats great news Jo. I hope Kayla and Spencer have a wonderful life together. Sounds like party time there also. We just found out a few weeks ago that our neice is getting married next April and My SIL and I are trying to put an engagement party together for the happy couple at the end of this month.

    Congratulations! I have never related to those mother-in-law jokes. My mother-in-law is absolutely wonderful, nothing even CLOSE to a “monster” in law! I’m sure Spencer thinks the same about you!
