Happy 50th Anniversary Mom & Dad!

click to enlarge Fifty years ago today my parents were married! Wow! That is a long time ago. My parents just seem way too young to have been married that long. I remember attending Dave's grandparents 50th anniversary about 25 years ago and they didn't seem as young as my parents. The past two weeks or more I have spent a lot of time on a book I've been making for them in honor of their 50th. 500 pictures later, it was sent off to be published two days ago. Now I am just praying it will get back in time for their open house. I really wanted it to be a surprise but wasn't able to do it that way because I had to have help from my mom in finding all the photos. It took a lot more time than I was planning on but it is one of those things made with the labor of love. I have pretty much worked on it night and day this past week. I even have a little blister on my right hand where I held the computer mouse! It was done all on line. I know it will all be worth it once it is here and in our hands. I can't wait until it gets back! It was a real trip down memory lane for me to gather and look through sooooo many photos. It brought back many great memories for me. I really loved seeing the old photos of my parents, grandparents and great grandparents. Many I had never seen before.

50 years...WOW!!! Congratulations Mom & Dad!!! Thanks for being such great parents! You are the best! I love you!!! Happy Anniversary!!!

50 great years down and eternity to go!!!

I will post their 50th photo after we get them back

We are getting a current one taken next week.

This is the invitation for the open house

Here is the book. Not the best way to view it as it is so small on here, but at least it gives you an idea of what it looks like. If you want a larger view go here.

This is the most wonderful 50th anniversary post! You've done the sweetest things for them! Congratulations to your dear parents! :)

I think it's cool that you and I both had our weddings in 1982, and that our parents' 50th anniversaries are so close together! (My parents celebrated theirs last November!)

I love the book, jodi. Great job. Such wonderful memories that I'm sure your parents will treasure.
Those kinds of gifts truly are a labor of love.
