Congratulations to Laura and Dane on their engagement! We are so, so happy for you guys! I would say welcome to the family, but Laura has been a part of our family for a while now. :)

Of course I have to make this about us, so here is the conversation telling the kids what was happening:

Me: Hey, guys- guess what? Uncle Dane is asking Laura if she wants to get married!

Abigail: To him?

Me: Yea, he's asking if she wants to get married to him.

Aidan: We go too? Fly in airplane?

Jack: Dey gonna wear wedding clothes?

Me: This means that Laura will be in our family!

Abigail: Laura is already in our family.

Me: Yep, you're right!

Congratulations, you guys! We are all really happy for you!

What the heck!? Are we the last to know about this!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh! Although, we're not really surprised about it. How exciting! Hopefully we'll get a call soon to wish our congratulations!

Sounds like the kids are happy! Hey, where did you get that National adoption month box at the top of your blog?? I want one! ;)

Dane said...

Thanks so much Shanna! Laura loves your family so much, the comments by the kids are really adorable, and sorry Rachel and Erik! I'll call you today if my phone doesn't die first :)

I stole the adoption thing from Katie- just right click on it, save it to your computer, then you can add it to your blog (there might be a better way, but that is what I did).

Thanks for putting this up Shanna, with the great pictures to go with it! I'm having fun sharing the news about Dane with the family also, and several learned about it and called us after reading your blog. We are all happy for Laura and Dane. 2009 will be a good year with the wedding to look forward to!
