50 Years...and Other Stuff...and Things

Because I am SO clever with the titles...


Here's a few pics from all the craziness of the week. Funsocksgirl took a million more, so don't be surprised if I post some of those later, especially since she is a much better photographer than I.

You can double click on any of the photos to enlarge them.

Here's the pretty 50th anniversary cake I made for the folks. That cake top is the same one that was on their cake back in 1958!

And here are the folks watching an e-card from Aunt C. The ecard is posted right after the pics. It's MUCH funnier with their faces in it! Unfortunately, I have not the internet savvy to post it thusly.

I'll post a better anniversary photo of the folks later after I steal one from Funsocksgirl.

Here's the OTHER anniversary couple: J-Man and Funsocksgirl, 2 years and going strong!

And here are all our guests of honor:

Lastly, for now, so I don't bore you into a puddle of drool, here's Mulletman and I and all the kids minus Scout. He (Scout) was actually supposed to be home, but they cancelled his military leave so he could throw fruit at people's heads during a training exercise.

Wait...don't tell anyone you read that here. I think it's some sort of national secret.

What a gorgeous cake!! Love taht the top is the original.

I like the looks on their faces as they watch the e-card even better than the card itself! They're cute.

I can always come here and laugh and laugh. Thank you for brightening up (and lightening up) the blog world! I could learn a thing or two from you!!
Your parents' faces are on the card, and as a former rhythmic gymnast, this was priceless.

Now have a great relaxing day!
