Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Jerry and me! 55 years! We’re still in love!!! Wedding DayOur wedding day, Saturday, June 13, 1959. Today is Friday, June 13, 2014. I’m not a superstitious person, it’s a good thing…otherwise our day could be ruined with worry. We’ve had a few other anniversaries on Friday the 13th! But we’ve had a good marriage. We set some goals in those early days and we’ve seen them be accomplished: to have a Christian marriage and home; to have children; to travel to all the United States, to travel the world (my goal!); to build a log home and more.    Newly weds!0003Oh yes, we’ve had a few bumps along the way, who hasn’t? But we’re in love and will be in love to the end!  This picture was taken shortly after our honeymoon! We lived in this trailer while Jerry built our first house!4335 Monroe Rd0001           It wasn’t quite finished here but we were living in it already. We lived here for the births of three of our five children. living room 4335 Monroe0001Timmy, Teddy and Pammy. If this picture was in color you’d see that Pammy’s dress and the boy’s vests were matching red velvet! I made them!!!

Then Jerry built us a bigger house! 4335 Monroe Rd0002 Our family grew as two more babies were born! Family of seven0005 Pam, Ted, Tim, Robby and Christy! We needed a big house!

And they all grew up! So we decided to build our dream house! A log home! Log Home  FrontLog Home 002 Back.

Our five children have now given us 15 grandchildren and one granddaughter-in-law! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Matthew, Gene, Pam, Ted, Christy, Tim, Shauna, Rob, Jessica and Haleigh.  Kaleb, Annie, Anita, Jerry, Miller and Megan.                                                        Armon, Isabella, Elmise, Maddie and Mason. There are a few missing from this picture:  Son-in-law – Sean, Grandchildren –  Andrew and Katie, Max, Tyler, Sydney and I think that’s it…

So we’re back to Jerry and me. This was taken last fall on our cruise of the Hawaiian Islands! Our last state to visit making it all 50 states!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Us & MG  So now here we are riding off into the unknown! Well, it’s not completely unknown because as children of God we know we have a home waiting for us in heaven. But how many more years will we have together? We hope many but only God knows. Jerry is a cancer survivor so we have much to be thankful for! Life is good!!! Happy 55th anniversary!!!
