My Romantic Son.....and Engagement Cookies





This weekend, my family had the distinct privilege of all being involved
in my son proposing marriage to his sweet girl, Becca.

I found out my son is quite the romantic.
I had no idea.......but I was super duper proud of him.

For weeks, he's been planning a very special day for Becca to agree to be his wife.

He planned lots of surprises.

And I added my surprise (for him too) by making them some customized 
engagement cookies.....just for them. :)

They spent the day together visiting several major attractions in St. Louis.

And then, while the paparazzi (Neil's siblings and Becca/Neil's friends) were able to see from a distance,
Neil got down on one knee and asked......


and Becca said "Yes"!






This is one happy girl......along with a very happy boy. :)











Neil also arranged for Becca's parents (who live in Kansas)
 to come into town and surprise her at the restaurant
we were all meeting for dinner to celebrate.


Lots of happy tears and precious memories made that day.....



Some very happy moms and dads......


My two daughters are THRILLED to add another sister to the mix.....





So you may ask......did they like the cookies?
I'll let pictures answer that question.



And Becca is one of my biggest fans......
and never hesitates to dive right in and eat my cookies.
I love that about her!
(Cookies are meant to be enjoyed.....both visually and then yummily ;))


Congratulations to my dear son, Neil, and his soon-to-be bride, Becca. 



AND......I've already asked if I can do cookies for their wedding.....

They said YES!

How exciting for your family, how wonderful for Neil and Becca. What fabulous pictures. Your son is pretty amazing and Becca is one very luck lady. Can only imagine how surprised she was, first over the engagement and secondly, to see her family at the restaurant! They are a sweet couple and congratulations to them. All of your engagement cookies are little treasures unto themselves but I really love how you did the ring boxes. I know your mind is whirring with ideas for the wedding cookies ;)
