Thomas proposed to Katie on Christmas Eve. Christmas is a special holiday for the both of them. After spending the day with family, they returned to the fan to walk and look at Christmas lights. Thomas decided to return to the house to start a fire and warm up. A Christmas tradition for both Thomas and Katie’s family is to open up one present on Christmas Eve. Thomas told Katie to pick one present under the tree. When she turned around, Thomas was on one knee with a box he handmade out of cedar and walnut from his hometown. Katie of course said “yes”!
