Happy Anniversary to your parents! Ours is tomorrow - 32 years.

Getting married this close to Christmas was the dumbest thing I ever did. I hope your parents have been more successful at taking time during the busy season to make the date special.

However, this year my husband has made reservations at a downtown restaurant, and plans on taking me to see Christmas lights after. He also called me yesterday to find out where I would be tomorrow - I have a feeling flowers are coming!

(PS - I think blogger comments don't like me. This isn't the first time I've had to re-create my comment because I get kicked out. I'm not saying anything ugly, I promise!)

Congratulations to your parents...wow 68 years! Looking at their picture I would never guess it would be that many years. They are a beautiful couple!

Wow-Happy Anniversary! That's really wonderful.

I don't think I'll get answers posted today as I've been away for the past week and today am going to a taping of The Martha Stewart show which I think will be fun but will mean I don't get anything done at home. I'm behind on shopping, wrapping and baking...I hope Martha doesn't scold me.

Have a great day!

Happy Anniversary to your parents. Great photos! I think George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life is most representative of me this year. In fact, I think I'll go watch it!
