50th Wedding Anniversary Recap

I have not had time to give you a recap of our 50th Wedding Anniversary Open House,
so since I now have the pictures ready, today seemed like a good time.

Hubby and I were married on September 5, 1965 and on September 5, 2015 we hosted an 
Open House for close friends and family.
It was a gorgeous day and even our house was happy.
I designed our guest book with pictures from the 50 years and asked guests to select a page to sign.
 I also compiled a book that encompassed special events during the past 50 years as a keepsake for us and our children.  Guests really enjoyed looking at it.
 The food and flowers were perfect and set the stage for a very festive and welcoming party.
 My long-time friend, Jean Ann took on the task of doing the food and she could not have done a better job.
I was so glad to have my sisters there as they were my bridesmaids 50 years ago and such an important part of our lives.
On the right is my daughter and two of her daughters enjoying the book.
 Cousins!  On the left are our Lazenby cousins; center is son (center) and two of his cousins; right is granddaughter and a new cousin she had never met.
 We missed our Daughter-in-Love, Michelle and three Indiana grandchildren due to previous activities, but were so grateful to have our son, John and daughter Christy and her family.
 So many sweet friends representing different times of our life together came to help us celebrate.
Our little garden home was filled with laughter and lots of hugs.
 There is nothing like treasured friendships!
 Yes, it was a memorable event for a memorable milestone.
We are so grateful for the 50 years God has given us together and for the many blessings He has poured out in our lives.
