My Dreams Are Comig True!

My younger brother, Joe, asked Malia, Matt's younger sister, to their Senior Prom!!!!!!! For those of you that know we you understand what a big deal this is! I have wanted little Malier and Joe Joe to get together for such a long time.... now I know this does not mean they are dating... but it is a step in the right direction.

And just a little background for you Malier and I have been friends since she was 12 (I was new in the ward and she was the only nice girl... even though I think I just scared her and she just wanted to be nice!) Anyway, since that friendship we always joked about wanting to be sisters... I told her the only way that would happen is if she married Joe! And of course, she told me I would have to marry Matt... which at the time I just laughed! Well, 6 years later we are sisters and I of course married Matt (who would have thought the skinny, nerdy, kinda strange boy I met at the age of 16 would be my future husband!)...

Anyway, this story is not about me...it's about the love that I can see blooming between Malier and Joe Joe... okay so I know I am being dramatic, but I am just so happy! And just so I don't get in trouble they are just friends.... (so they say).... and just a reminder... but Matt and I were 'just friends' too!

Okay, so by now you guys just want to hear the story... now I am not quite sure of the details but I do know that Joe called me one day last week and asked when Malia went to church. After some asking around, I let him know the time. He then told me he was going to take a bag of Hershey Kisses and lead a path up to her room (now this is not creepy because our families have been friends for a while and Joe is almost a permanent fixture at their house). Then inside her room he was going to spell PROM? with the Hershey Kisses!!!!! I know I can hear the sighs now :) And just a side note Joe is NOT a romantic at ALL so this was a HUGE gesture.. and from this I can see how much he cares for Malia... even if it is just friendship.... for now :)

Enjoy the Pictures!


  1. Alex,

    I love your post, but your brother is going to go postal. Can't wait to show him - maybe I will show him first thing in the morning before school. That will be a great start to his week!!

  2. Dear Alex - loved the picture of Malia and the chocolate kisses. Her dress looks gorgeous - I am glad they are going to the Prom because I think it is best when you go with a FRIEND.
    love abuela
