I walked out into my living room this morning and something pink caught my eye outside. I looked out the window to find our front yard covered with pink flamingos! We had been "FLOCKED"!
Today is our 40th wedding anniversary, yes 40th! It is hard to believe that 40 years ago, on a beautiful summer day, Jimmy and I were married at St Rose Church where I was a primary teacher.
This past year has been filled with the best of blessings. Since our last anniversary, we now have a bigger family filled with joy! Gina and Eric started it off last September, then we got to add Chris and Ava to Angie's family and just recently little Prince Otto arrived. Jimmy and I feel like we got the best gifts of all for our 40th. We waited a long time for this and got a big bundle all at once. We are thankful! I hope God grants us many more years together.
Jim and Linda 40 years after we said,"I do". Look at those smiles!
I am still laughing at all the pink flamingos that filled our yard. We knew immediately that it was the work of Chris and Angie. Thanks you guys for such a fun way to celebrate our 40th.
This sign was in the yard and we get to "adopt" on to remember the day.
Gina came over yesterday as she was very sick. We enjoyed her company and took care of her. We just let her sleep late this morning. When she got up, she also gave us a very special gift. She transfered over some airplane miles so we can buy one ticket for a belated 40th anniversary trip to New England next fall. We were going this year, but with the arrival of the baby, we decided to postpone it until next year. No excuses next year with Gina's generous gift. Thanks so much Gina.
Jimmy always brings me roses for special occasions. These are such a pretty color. Thank you Jimmy.
