How sweet! Makes me think of my own parents 40, 50, and then their 60th anniversary parties. Thankfully, they made it to their 65th. Still miss them so much! You made wonderful memories for your parents!~Hugs, Patti

Before I forget, Dawn ~ Clara is getting so big! She is just too cute. Mine is just a peanut right now, so I can't even imagine her standing up on her own! Your parents look so happy! Knowing how fast the years go by {and how you still feel like that young person in your head}, I am sure they can not believe that it's been 50 years. God bless them and I want to look that happy on my 50th!

Dawn, I simply can't belive HOW YOUNG your MOM LOOKS..she and your dad must have married at 16.
What a nice celebration.....they all seemed to enjoy it....and nice to have old friends and the family there to make this a VERY special celebration like it really was.

And you sweet Carla was there to make you happy too...tell me again, is she your niece ?


CONGRATULATIONS again to them.

OMG girl, it looks perfect! Look at all the food~ Your parents are adorable. I love the pic from the restaurant. Daddy snuggling with Mama, just like they were 20. And the boys, Ohhhh I didn't realize Chase had all that hair! Tell Noah he's a ringer for that Justin Beaver character. Cute, all the boys have the same hands in pocket pose. And Clara, getting bigger everyday. What a huge amount of work, you really pulled it off sweetie. And still managed to sew tiny shoes for your buddy. Lisa
