34 Years and Counting

Mom and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary on April 18. Here we are in Downey, Idaho on that wonderful day. I was a lot skinnier then, but Anne is just as beautiful!

This was taken during the reception in Downey that night. (Check out those sideburns!)

Here we are in our first house in Houston.

This last picture was taken on our cruise in Oct'08. I'm more gray and Anne is even more beautiful.

It has been a wonderful 34 years, and we've only just begun! Along the way, we've picked up Bethany, Jefferson, Jonathan, Leanna. Next came Zak, Vanessa and Crystal. Finally, we can lay claim to Jakson and Storey in our extended family. Ultimately, I expect Leanna will find her "He Who Shall Not Be Named".

We count you as our greatest blessings.

Congratulations, Papa. That's wonderful. We're so happy for y'all and to be a part of y'alls heritage.

Plus what a good lookin' couple!!

Love the blast from the past pictures. Nice dad. You married up, for sure :)

Leanna said...

like I said earlier, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that his name is NICK JONAS!

I refuse to be related to any of the Jonas Brothers.
