I am so proud to use a little blog space today to congratulate our parents, Joan and Fred, on FIFTY-FIVE years of marriage. They have quietly put down their roots and been wonderful role models for their children, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren. We salute them for all their accomplishments, not the least of which is teaching us how to put FAITH and FAMILY at the forefront!
So on Friday evening, June 25, we gathered to celebrate their milestone.
The table was set . . .
The food was prepared . . .
The crowd gathered . . .
. . . and we enjoyed a great meal together. Cheers to you both . . . we love you and are thankful for all that you have done for us!! Wishing you many, many more happy days together!!
Annette and Lee have been visiting for the past few days while their mom and dad have been away at a relative's wedding. We have had so much fun playing and watching them change almost everyday.
Annette is VERY close to crawling . . .
Lee really likes the hammock . . .
And seems to understand what hammocks are all about . . .
I have been madly trying to finish Annette's "poncho" or winter cape. Details are on Ravelry. Here is a picture after beginning to bind off. That is such a cute frilly ruffle around the bottom edge. I counted almost 1000 stitches around before I began to bind off. It was a little challenging to push around the needles.
Surely will be finished soon . . . hope to have pictures with a precious little model!!
