Cottage Lake Newspaper

Jay & I are famous.

SUPER famous ...

... if you ask the kids of Cottage Lake Elementary that is!

We were FRONT PAGE ya'll of the school newspaper that went out today.

Here is our article written by a 6th grade student:
The Stookeys
There is something very special about this year and many will remember it ... Yes, as many students have heard, Mr. Sookey and Ms. Diederichs (now Mrs. Stookey) got married! It started the day Mr. Stookey walked in for his job interview (for the record, this is NOT when we started dating, this is when we MET ... it was YEARS later that we started dating. And by 'many' years, I meant like 5.) Ms. Diederichs was the first person he met ...

Their wedding was June 6th at an undisclosed location but I will tell you that it took place by a lake. He proposed to her at Snoqualmie Falls on March 29th. The only people at the wedding were parents and siblings. There were only 18 people total!

Their favorite things to do together are watch Mariners games, go to Barnes and Noble, travel, put up holiday decorations, and play with their dog, Cooper. They love to watch the movie "Transformers" and are looking forward to the sequel.

Here is what Mrs. Stookey likes about Mr. Stookey: "We are best friends, family always comes first, he always has a good time, and I couldn't ask for more. And it doesn't hurt that he's handsome!" Here is what he likes about her, "She has a great personality, a great sense of humor, she is smart, fun and has a great smile." He also admires that she is devoted to good causes like helping children in Africa.

Their house is divided, he's a Cougar, and she's a Husky, enough said. All in all, they are perfect for each other.

Oh. My. Gosh. I LOVE THIS. You have the best kid stories ever! I STILL remember my 4th grade teacher getting married. I was in awe. She went from Miss Fields to Mrs Worth and I thought she was the most beautiful thing ever. So cute how your kids will remember you too. :)
