Well now he’s all grown up and engaged to this lovely lady!

Both families came together to have a big party in celebration of their engagement! We laughed so much we cried. And sometimes we cried just because everything got so emotional. Time is just flying by. Max is actually engaged. And later this year he will be a married man! πŸ™‚

DSC_0587We had a feast! I made BLT deviled eggs which were adorable! I’ll share that recipe later this week. πŸ™‚

collage of picsMy Uncle printed off a bunch of photos of Max and Laura and put cute little phrases on each one. Β He attached the photos to balloons which floated around all evening. I thought this was absolutely precious!

telephone pictionaryWe played Telephone Pictionary with advice for the new couple being our theme. It was hilarious! As a side note, the guy on the bottom right Β is Laura’s brother-in-law (he married her sister) and he also just so happens to be a guy I knew in college! I am actually terrible with remembering people that I haven’t seen in recent years, but he remembered me! His cousin was a close friend of mine from college and once I started putting the pieces together I definitely remembered him! Small world! We had fun catching up and I loved getting to know his wife!

I am so happy for the two of them! And for our family as we add a new family to ours. Hooray for love sweet love! πŸ™‚
Love Rach

  10. Look how curly your hair was!! πŸ™‚ Way too cute! AND I love the helium balloons idea. I’ve seen it on Pinterest, but I think your uncle did a nicer job than the Pinterest idea I saw. Very special!! πŸ™‚ And last but not least, please do share your deviled egg recipe! I need to try making it, because Nate asked me the other day what a deviled egg was. I was shocked, but he had never tried one… nor seen one before. Ha, ha!! And I imagine that your BLT version has bacon? If so, I KNOW my hubby will love them. πŸ™‚

    • Oh man, I should start pulling out more littleRach pics! I had such springy-curly hair, haha! Also, I cannot believe that Nate has never even heard of a deviled egg!! Crazy! Where is he from? What did he eat growing up? πŸ˜› You are correct, though, they do have bacon in them! And they are delicious! The recipe is up on my blog today. Enjoy! πŸ™‚
