August 1, 1975!

33 years ago today, Greg and I began this wonderful adventure which has been our life together.
I know it sounds so cliche' but I really have to wonder where the time has gone. When we married, Greg was still in college, I had begun teaching middle school (it kind of makes me shudder to think about :D), and no kids, just dogs. Look at us now, our family has grown by leaps and bounds and so have we - but we'll table that discussion for now. Here are some pictures of a young couple of kids - that most people wouldn't even recognize now.
Greg's yellow tux really was "stylin." It was actually a much brighter yellow than it appears in the pictures. My mom made my gown, I loved it, and I think it cost about $35.
I just had to post these two pictures just for my girls' benefit. We caught some grief from the girls about the ring pictures - I can't imagine why?!

Don't you just love the "artistic" approach of this picture. Do you think this dates us at all ?! :D

Thanks so much for sharing the pictures--I love them! The most amazing thing--and I think I've said this before is--Greg's Hair!

You guys are such sweet people and are a great example of married folks who are happy together! Happy Anniversary!

I remember a guy that used to come to the football games with Penny Jones that looked just like Greg. I used to pick on him pretty bad. I sure hope it wasn't you Greg!!Happy Anniversary!!!

That would be wonderful to hear from Pa! Thank you and feel free to give him my email. I got his address from Annie a few months ago and misplaced it once I wrote it down..it's hard to keep track of things with these guys around here. :-D I am so ready to meet my little guy, the anticipation is starting to get to me! I am officially "nesting" now...it's driving my poor husband nutty. haha

Liz and I married on 25 August, 1979 and by God's blessing it is still going strong. When I look at our wedding photos we seem to be so young looking! But I should say:
I found your blog looking for Christians who like to read. May I suggest "Outcasts Of Skagaray" as a Christian novel to try? You can preview it free by reading the sample chapters on www.threeswans.com.au It would be fabulous if you read and enjoyed it, but whatever happens, I greet you in the Lord. Blessings. My blog is http://threeswans.blogspot.com if you feel like visiting.
