Tannon Gets Engaged and Senior Night

Yesterday was a day that will live in Pedersen infamy.

Tannon got engaged and Dawson played his last home basketball game of his high school career (good thing we still have the state playoffs to look forward to watching him play in next week).

Let's talk about the engagement first:
Tannon lives 3 hours away in Cedar City, UT. His beautiful girlfriend (now fiance'e), Michelle lives up here. Tannon surprised her yesterday by sneaking up, decorating her house with rose petals leading from the front door to her bedroom, setting up a "Will U Marry Me?" in tea candles on her bedroom floor and lighting them, and then waiting on one knee until she came home from work for the surprise. I was excited that Tannon involved me and Michelle's mom. We helped set everything up. Michelle's best buddy helped make sure that she got home at just the right time.  Tannon popped the question, Michelle said, "Yes" and the rest is history!

Michelle enters. Can you believe all that smoke? Yes, we set off the smoke alarm!

"Will You Marry Me?"

She said, "Yes!"

So in love!

It was so much fun to be a part of this big surprise. Dan-the-Man was on the phone with me the second it was all done wanting to hear every detail.  I don't think Tannon or Michelle could have hoped for a more perfect proposal.  Congrats, you two.  Now to prepare for a June wedding!

After all of the proposal excitement we all headed to Dawson's last home basketball game of his high school career. We are so sad to see this come to an end. Luckily we will be playing in the state tourney next week. Hopefully we'll still have several more games (that means WIN, Mighty Red Devils).  It was Senior night at the game. I tried not to cry as we walked out on center court to be recognized. My baby is all "growed up!" We finished our regular season with a record of 17-4, ranked #6 in the state going into the tourney.  Go, Devils!

Have a great day!  I'm off to teach a scrapbook class this evening. I love my job!

Thanks for taking such great pictures so I could live vicariously through you. Wish I could've been there so bad! I love the pic of you and dad with Dawson. SO much happening around there these days!
