On November 2, we went to a "surprise" birthday party for my brother at my dad's house. The party was planned by his girlfriend, Meredith. However, unbeknownst to Meredith, my brother had actually planned the whole thing with my dad. JD was looking for a creative way to propose to Meredith, and he needed an excuse to have all their friends and family there, so he faked a surprise birthday party. Needless to say... Meredith was VERY surprised! She said "yes", though, and they are planning a wedding for June 2008.
Congratulations, Uncle JD and Aunt Meredith!
