Pie & Tie

sunday we attended a pie & tie farewell for one of my favorite guys who left for his mission yesterday. i had never heard of a pie & tie event, but i loved the idea!

each guest brought a tie. new or used it didn't matter and presented it with a bit of advice or a thought. fabulous. bring tissue!

and of course, there was pie. lots of yummy pie!

(a loving more huggin' the missionary!)

(elder riddle & two future missionaries!)

(elder riddle & my favorite little guy!)

a friend gave each of the "older" boys matching ties with a story about "the ties that bind them as friends, bothers in Christ, and as future missionaries" great idea!

and of course, a quilt from his mom!

congratulations david. you are going to be a GREAT missionary!

Such a great idea and fun way to send off a missionary. Sounds like it was quite the inspiring event! And I love the whole matching ties/tie swapping idea.
