Well, they finally did it, and though this won’t come as much of a shock to those of you in the family (since you’ve probably already heard), I’ll go ahead and announce the big news here, too, for all the world to read:
Erik & Carissa are gettin’ hitched!
So we threw them a party. Gory details inside.
Yep, friends, they’ve finally gone and done it. Or, as Pat put it so eloquently (in icing) on the cake (see photo gallery), “It’s About Time!”While we don’t think we’d have chosen exactly those words, we’re equally thrilled that they’ve decided to take the big step. We’ve only known about it for a short while, but since Erik and Carissa had a visit down here scheduled anyway, we decided to throw them a small engagement party here at the house. Here’s the photo album, which should tell you all you need to know.
