        We were just talking about this. What's the etiquette? Do they each get a gift?

            For my mom:  "To dry your tears as you have always dried mine."

             

            My dad:  "You will always be the first man I ever loved."

             

            FI's mom:  "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams."

             

            FI's dad:  "Thank you for your example of a husband and father.  I am blessed to marry your son."

             

            Not for everyone but great for us!


            That's awesome!  nice quotes.  My dad is a softie too so I think he deserves a hanky. My FI said that my dad cried when he asked for my hand in marriage :-) so cute!

              This is so adorable! my parents would love this! thanks for sharing!
