New Years was a ton of fun. We decided to go to 6 Flags. They were open till midnight with a fireworks show at the countdown. We were very impressed with what 6 Flags put together. There were decorations and characters dressed up. They even had discounted admission tickets. It was pretty cold but they had plenty of heaters throughout the park. They even had bon fires they people could stand around to keep warm. They had a dance floor with a great DJ. Jessika and I liked him so much we took down his web address so we could use him in June for our wedding. We are truly blessed with good friends. Some of which we haven’t seen for a number of years. There were about 9 of us total. Unfortunately our friend Joe couldn’t come with us. He was stuck in North Carolina for the holidays. He missed his flight because he had to be rushed to surgery to have his gull bladder taken out. Our prayers will defiantly be with him throughout his recovery.

The Proposal at Concord High School
The night was completely magical. I don’t know if either of us could have asked for more. It all started when I told Jessika that my dad was getting a big award at Concord High School during half time for all the selfless hard work he puts into the school. That was my excuse to get all of her family together for the big moment. And she totally bought it. The stage was set for her to be on the field with me to hand him the award.
It took a lot of effort from a lot of people to get everything set up. Lisa, Jessika’s best friend in high school, helped me coordinate and keep Jessika at a safe distance. It wasn’t as easy as I would have hoped for. Jessika seem to catch every excuse and lie and that just turned in to more excuses and more lies. It just brought more emotion that made for a bigger surprise.
As you can see from the movie clip everything was perfect and she had no idea. The night was perfect and the weather was splendid. Even the game was incredible; it ended with a last second dive into the end zone for the win by one point.
