Living the Married Life

As you know, our plans changed very quickly. Instead of a $10,000 wedding in Conroe, we had a civil service in Corpus Christi, TX. Everything changed during Spring Break when Dianna was offered a teaching position in Hawaii. Aloha Texas, Aloha Hawaii!!

The grand proposal.....


  1. WHAT A WONDERFUL VIDEO!!! OH, YOU MADE ME CRY!!! I JUST LOVE THAT (except for the moment or two when I thought Diana couldnt breathe!!!)!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH OF YOU!!! James, you are THE MAN!!! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! And Diana is the perfect person for you and I'm so glad its going to be technically official that she's part of our clan!!!! Diana, I hope you can put up with all of us for the rest of your life!!! We can be a little overwhelming, as I'm sure you've noticed! But you fit right in and I'm so glad you'll be part of our family. Love you both!!!

  2. James,
    Your Dad and I have watched this over and over. It is very moving and beautifully filmed. You know how happy we are and how much we love Dianna, but I also have to say "Its about time!" (I know you hate that.) What a great way to propose! You always did think outside the box.
    We love you and welcome you to the family. I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful person as a daughter-in-law. We have a lot to look forward to and be thankful for.
    Mom and Dad

  3. To My New Family,

    Thank you!! I love you all very much. It is a great bonus that James has such a wonderful family! You always hear the horror stories of people not liking their in-laws. I feel like I've hit the jackpot.


  4. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! What wodnerful news and what an awesome video!! I'm so happy for you guys!

    Wooohooo!!! I'll be keeping up with your news along the way!

    Love to you both! Linda

  5. Congratulations you two!!! James, that was awesome in the tank!!! Dianna, you are a very lucky girl!!! I'm still a little misty after watching the video. Can't wait to hear about wedding plans, etc. That was THE best. So happy for you!!

  6. Dude, you are seriously one of the coolest guys ever. Awesome. Congrats to both of you.

  7. What wonderful news and what a neat way to propose! We're so happy for both of you! For years now, we've considered Dianna one of the family, and now it will be official. This is such an exciting time in your lives - we're looking forward to hearing about future plans.

    (Yesterday afternoon I tried several times with no success to download this video. We often have problems with YouTube videos. Finally last night I just left it working and went to bed. This morning, there you were!! We're so happy we got to see it - it's a great video!)
    Love to you both
    Meemaw and Peepaw
