Walking Down the Aisle~ Happy 49th Mom and Dad!

Today is my mom and dad's 49th anniversary!  Happy Anniversary to them!  Tall Guy and I, and then my niece followed in their footsteps down the same aisle.  Love you all!



Here are a few more snap shots from the big day!  I was born nine months and four days after this big event, and my niece was born nine months and four days after her parents were married.  Talk about a family tradition!  Tall Guy and I missed the mark by a few months, but we tried to keep up the tradition!  ;-)



 Grandpa Todd made my mom's wedding dress from lace he brought back from Japan while serving in WWII.  He also brought back a pearl necklace that Mom wore for her wedding, as did I and then my niece. 
We also have a birthday today in our family.  Happy 80th birthday Aunt Donna!  We love you bunches!

Now pardon me as I scurry around to take pictures of Tink on her first day back to school!   Woo!  One down and one to go.  Bear has a half day on Monday, and then she gets to ride the bus with big sister on Tuesday!  Gulp!  I have my happy dance all ready, but I think I had better have some tissues ready just in case I go all Mommy on her!

  1. Big congrats to them. I got married in the same church both my maternal grandparents and parents were married in so 3 generations. So I think it's wonderful that you did the same.

  4. I love it! Its nowhere near as special yet but I bought my niece a set of pearls when I was traveling to China and she plans to hand them down to the daughter she adopted when she gets married. Love those threads that connect us all.
