A Very Good Engagement

"Shannon lights up every room she walks into." Kenny Plunk at their engagement party last night.
Tracy and Kelly Morris. Kenneth Plunk with Shannon Morris. Craig and Jeannie Morris
Craig and Jeannie have a photo of when they first met. He is peaking into her crib.
Kenny fell in love with Shannon the moment he saw her. He was 16 and she was 14.

 I love this family for how they have loved our son.



Here I am, unusually well "cleaned up"for a writer; surrounded by the men in my life. (L-R) My husband is known to his family as Gerald. To those of us who met him after UCLA- he is Gerry. Kenny was named for Gerry's dad- if someone calls and ask for Kenneth - we know the person has never met him. On the right is his big brother-Trevor. He flew in from the Rocky Mountains to be with us.



The lovely Amy Lamping is following Kelly into the house. We've known Amy since she and Trevor were in the 5th grade. She must have made an impression on me. When adult Trevor living away from the family nest he fessed up to dating a girl from Diamond Bar. He said her name was Amy- I asked, "Amy Lamping?" 

The evening belonged to Kenny and Shannon. The images of them growing up and falling in love were over the top wonderful


There really is too much great info to squeeze in one post.  I will never forget last night. Thank you Craig and Jeannie for opening your home and garden for this celebration.

OH MY GOODNESS Lydia!

Are you SURE that wasn't the wedding? Sure did look like it! Shannon in a beautiful long white dress and the rest of the ladies in different shades of pink to lavendar! Were the colors planned? I would think so because I couldn't imagine everyone wearing the same colors otherwise.
Oh everything looked beautiful! I am so looking forward to seeing more of the pictures!
Keep em coming!

Hugs, Trisha
