Thirty Three Years Ago...

I was shoving cake in the Hubbs face.

All of our Pics. are in the storage unit...
so I was stuck with this one...
the only one on my computer.
Not the greatest but you get the gist...

2 people in love...
lots of family and friends...
Bad Hair day for both of us...
Light blue wedding colors(yuck) least fav. color-don't ask. 
It could provoke an argument. lol

White fluffy dress{Clear up to my Chin}
White tux {with tails}.

I was totally in la-la land.
Had no idea what the next 33 years would bring.

The odds on our Marriage were not good.
We were both the babies of our families.
We were young.
We were poor.
and on and on.

But looks like we made it!

It's been like strawberries & sparkly

Totally kidding...

It's been more like a Fiesta!

That's not true either.
Some days it was like...
2 babies raising a baby!

You know- lots of whining & crying going on.

There were 4 CUTE babies added.
Lots of bottles and diapers.

More bad hair days.
Then we switched to Baptisms, ball games, dance lessons, singing lessons, piano lessons,school, Chess tournaments,Spelling bees, loose teeth, braces,boyfriends, girl friends &

Lots of money for designer {GAP} clothing. 
Bad Hair Days.

Then there were graduations, weddings, Missions.

The kids were all growing up faster than we could believe, but My Man & I kept holding hands through it all.
{ in between all the screamings}&
more bad hair Days.

Adding more kids to the mix.

Don't have pics. of my girls weddings. {boo}

Along with the good times, we had our bad times too. We are normal after all.

We had 2 totally different ideas on how to raise and discipline kids.

We had 2 ideas on how to budget...
what...a budget...crap, I got no training on that one. Good thing the Hubbs did.

We endured lots of illnesses, surgeries,& diseases.

We learned much from owning and operating a Flower shoppe for 8 years.

We learned that every day is Precious.

We lost my Mom, Dad, step Dad and Glen's Dad all in a few years-We miss them so much.

I owe everything I am or hope to be to my Dear Sweet Mother.
{I borrowed that one from Abe}

Then came the Grands...

Wow- They are the Grand Prize!

 We have been blessed!
Just take a look at us NOW!

We have come a long way Baby!!!

Not quite as cheesy as we used to be.

Thank Goodness.

So this post serves as a reminder...
You can survive many things...
against all odds.

Here's to 33 or more Years with
{Hubbs, R, Dear, Jerk, Crazy, my one & only}.
Happy Anniversary Babyyyyyy!!!

Hope all of you have a great President's Day Holiday!
Love the ones you LOVE.
