Meet the Future Mrs. Cunningham!!

 Yes, you read that right! Cody is engaged to this gorgeous young lady.

Alisa Walker. A muscian and singer with a beautiful spirit. She and her sisters are The Redhead Experss, a wonderful bluegrass, country and gospel band that performs all over the US. 
These first two pictures were taken shortly after Cody and Alisa reunited for the first time in 6 years. A photographer asked them to model for some couples shots. I think everyone could see what was in their future!

 This was Tuesday evening September 9th. He was a little nervous I'm told.

 Alisa and the Redhead Express band had just finished performing "Cowboy, Take Me Away".
Cody decided to take her up on it.
"Well, I'm not really much of a cowboy, but anything I am and everything I am I want you to have....."
"Alisa Walker, will you marry me?"  



Cody and Alisa met at the Nauvoo Pageant 6 years ago. She was 15 yrs old. Cody was a month from his 18th birthday and looking forward to going on a mission the following year. A year or so later Alisa 'friended' me on Facebook and kept us apprised of  the band's touring schedule, news of the family, etc. This spring she and Cody became 'Friends' on Facebook, and the rest is history.
The Engagement Ring Story:

After spending a few weeks with Alisa Cody knew this was going to be something special. While in Nauvoo he purchased a piece of stone from the original Nauvoo Temple. With the help of his sister Shiloh, they made this beautiful ring with that piece of stone commemorating the wonderful place where they first met. Now they will be married in the Nauvoo Temple on November 25th. 
How truly blessed we are to have this wonderful young woman join our family!
