Ryan had asked Sam and me for Laura's hand the Monday before Thanksgiving (at a very special meeting at our kitchen table). That was almost a month ago. Well, finally he was able to take her to Lake Waco - where they had their first date - and he proposed . . . and she said a hearty 'YES'!
Then they made the trek to our home where his family and hers and a few friends were gathered to celebrate. Here are some of the folks (click to enlarge)....(Above, from left: Will (brother of the bride), Bailey, Victoria (sister of the groom), Laura, Ryan , Zack (brother of the groom), Julia, Robert and Rachael.)
The next picture is of Ryan's family watching the DVD of a "Texas Country Reporter" episode featuring the World Hunger Relief Farm, where Laura and Ryan met. (They are in the video!)I had ordered that DVD several weeks ago and it came in the mail Saturday. Perfect. None of us had ever seen it before, though we knew it was out there. (What fun.)
Of course we had to have some pictures made...
Oh, here they are changing their Facebook status...
Oh, and there's this...
We love Ryan so much.
Thank you, Lord!
