M&M's 50th

My parents wedding topper.

The hand drawn invitations done by Connie

William had such a good time playing with my cousin Chris' little girl Penelope.

These are blown up copies of some letters my parents wrote to each other while they were dating.

 The grand kids sang Lollipop for my parents and it was pretty cute.

And  a couple of my brothers learned to play my parents song Sleepwalk.
 Clint and his friend Dusty who helped them out.
and Mark

 My dad started crying pretty hard as soon as they started playing and I almost lost it big time.

It was super sweet.

The whole family

 So fun to see old friends.

Joseph was such a trooper that night. He had a fever that day and Russ stayed home with him for a lot of the day so he could sleep but they came for the party. I could tell Joseph was tired but he never threw a fit. Not even when it was over and he kept asking to go home to bed and I just had to keep cleaning up.

It is not a Huston celebration without dancing the twist.

Two of my best friends Jennie and Jacie

It was a very fun night. I went home with tired feet but it was all worth it.

My parents 50th part 1

These are all the pictures from my camera.
We displayed my dad's letterman sweater and one of my mom's dance dresses. I think she wore it to prom.
Connie made CD's that looks like records with our parents favorite songs. 

The only decoration that they had at their wedding was an aluminum Christmas tree with blue ornaments so we re-created that. Connie said my mom teared up when she saw it.
Before the reception we had lunch with me cousins and family and spent time reminiscing and looking at pictures of Christmas' past. Then we finished setting up and had a dinner for family (a potato/salad bar). Then we cleaned that up and had the reception where we served soft serve, root beer floats, and popcorn cake that my mom made (cause she couldn't not do something).
Here is Earlene and Maurine (my mom and her sister). These are my role models right here. Everything that a women should be.

It really was a wonderful day and I will be posting more pictures from the photographer soon.
