40 Years of Magic!

My parents recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, and we had them a small little get together to celebrate. I dug out some old photos to share with all of our guests, and I thought I would share them with ya'll also.


This was before they were married. They were going to some dance at their college.

This was at my grandma's house, and it was probably my Dad's birthday

This picture makes me laugh because my Mom looks cold....but yet she has on a mini skirt! Even worse....look at my Dad's pants!!! A little short huh!


I loved my Mom's wedding dress. It was beautiful.

My Dad's pants appear to be longer here.

Mom and my Paw Paw


This picture just makes me laugh out loud...literally! You see, both of those women are my aunts. How in the world either of them got their hair to do that is beyond me. My aunt on the right has CURLY CURLY hair...and so that is really straight for her.

I love this pictured

This is after they were married.

This was right after my brother was born....you can't tell but my Mom is holding him.

And here I am!

I set up a table on the back porch with some of those photos and more. It rained the day of the party for the first time in weeks! Go figure, as soon as you have an outdoor party planned, it rains!


I regret not taking more pictures, but I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off!

We fried fish and drank sangria!



I made arrangements for each table that had love quotes tied to them.

My brother and his wife entertained us

My Dad surprised my Mom with a ruby ring for their anniversary. I stuck it in a cupcake for him to give to her. By the way, the cupcakes were really cute....but I didn't get any pics.



I am over this heat. The dog days of summer and getting to me. I am ready for some cooler weather! We have been getting showers here almost everyday. After it rains it is like a sauna!

People think I'm rushing things by wishing for some cooler weather but - REally!. I'm planning next springs garden anyway. What a great party. You look like your mother especially in the young photos.

Congratulations on forty years. That is so wonderful. What cute pictures. I had to laugh because I use to have the puffy ratted hair too. LOL! They look so sweet together. You look just like your Mom April!

What a nice party for your parents! Loved seeing all the vintage (not that long ago, though) photos. I hope they have many more happy years.

Happy anniversary to your mom and dad. I love all of the old pictures. We've been married about the same length of time (42 this year) and their pictures brought back lots of nice memories. My wedding veil was very similar to your mother's and my picture with my bridemaid's is similar too.
