65 YEARS!!!

This weekend, we celebrated my husband's grandparent's 65th wedding anniversary! Isn't it hard to imagine being married that long?!? This party was a complete surprise to them, and they loved it.

Even with 2 "photographers" in the family, we forgot to have Grandma and Grandpa pose together! So, this is the best shot we have of them celebrating their special day together.

This is Grandpa with his "big" sister. There were 8 kids in Grandpa's family and 3 are still living. This lovely lady, Aunt Jessie, is the oldest at 93. She'll be 94 in October. She was the 2nd child and Grandpa was the 5th. The other living brother lives in Iowa and has Alzheimer's.


This is Grandma (in brown) with her remaining siblings. There were 7 children in her family and 3 are still living. "Auntie" (on left) lives just down the street from Grandma and Grandpa where they've been neighbors for many years. (Grandma and Grandpa have lived in the same house most of their married lives!) My husband grew up in the same neighborhood as his grandma and great aunt! The uncle in the photo lives close enough to visit regularly. Out of the children, Auntie was #4, Grandma was #5, and this Uncle was #7 - the baby of the family.

How wonderful! We just recently did a 50th anniversary for a wonderful couple (see the photography blog for a few photos) and it's SO wonderful to see such inspiring couples! Thanks for sharing.

Wow...they all look amazing. Jeff and I have both lost all of our grandparents :(. I miss my grandmother on my Dad's side so much.
