Yesterday we had the honor of meeting Jared. Jared is Richard's little sister Karen's fiancee. They're getting married December 27. Jared seems like a great guy. The kids instantly loved him just as much as they love Karen (which is a lot!). He hung out with Richard and Richard's brother Kevin while Karen, Kevin's wife Kelly, Margaret my MIL and I went shopping. We were on the search for an outfit for Karen to wear to the reception here in Virginia this Friday. We found the perfect thing after just a couple of hours and came back exhausted.
