Engagement Celebrations

We feel so blessed to have family and friends who love us so much!  Take our engagement celebrations as an example:

We had barely finished calling the whole family when our good friends Ann Grabowski and Sarah Sterling threw us our first Engagement Party!  It was sweet sharing Milano cookies and Champagne at my little apartment.

A Toast to our Engagement!

Re-Staging the Proposal for our Guests.

Then, on Saturday night, Jake's parents (Mike and Lita) took us out to a LOVELY steak dinner at Vic Stewart's in Brentwood.  Jake's sister Taylor and her boyfriend Joe came out to celebrate and his little brother Nick even left the Junior Prom for a couple of hours to be with us.  What a fun night!  The food was great and we had a lot of fun teaching Lita about "that's what she said" jokes.

The happy couple.

Lita, Mike and Nick smile for the camera.

Joe and Taylor.  Wine much?
