Tom and I celebrated our
33rd Wedding Anniversary, this past week.
Kimmy had a dinner party and invited
We received the most precious gift.
After living in our home for 30 years,
it was very hard to remove certain
items when we moved, without tears.
The hardest were the pictures of our children growing up.
They lined both sides of our long hallway.
Being able to see how our kids grew up, through these pictures, was always fun.
But, I just couldn't remove these pictures!
Because Kimmy and her family moved into our home,
I just left them.
I told her someday I would come and get them.
She knew how hard it was going to be for me to take them down.
Mark and Kimmy had an idea. As an anniversary gift,
they removed all pictures, scanned each of them, and put them back.
Then held onto their secret.
They made an album with all those precious pictures,
Children's Garden and so many more great memories.

Here's Lulu looking at our wedding album,
which also showed up for our party
Lulu decorated and it was GOOD!
And Kimmy came up with the craziest idea.
"Hey mom ,try on your wedding dress!"
And, after all these years,
I was able to put on my wedding dress.
And the moment was even more
special with Lulu and Levi.
