My Brother Is Engaged!

When my brother started dating Holly several years ago, my sister and I were terrified he was going to do something to screw it up.  Not that he usually does, but we really love Holly and think she is so perfect for Luke.  We were so worried it was too good to be true.

Luckily, Holly is a very patient lady and I couldn't be more thrilled to soon call her family.

My brother went over the top with his proposal to Holly and we loved being a part of the big surprise.

Luke spent weeks in his backyard stringing together an elaborate message made from pool noodles.
Luke and Holly spent the morning of the engagement at a few Texas hill country vineyards before Luke said to Holly, "My colleague mentioned a cool vineyard called 'Air Vineyard'.  Do you want to try it?"

So, they packed up and went to "Air Vineyard" only to see that it was actually an airport.  Luke told Holly he picked up a Groupon for a helicopter ride.  He even went to the trouble of making a fake Groupon coupon.

Meanwhile, 50 of Luke and Holly's closest friends and family were back at Holly's family lake house preparing for a dramatic flyover.
Early afternoon, all of us gathered friends and family heard the tell-tale whir of a helicopter arriving overhead.

 What did Holly see from high up above?
 Yes, it was "the most dramatic Bachelor proposal yet."

The happy couple joined everyone back at the lake house for an evening of BBQ and fun.
 My sister came in town for the big weekend!
 Our family and a new plus one!

Congrats to the future Mr. and Mrs. Thomas (they freak out every time we say that!).
