My Parent's Wedding Anniversary

My Parent's Wedding
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
I am slowly scanning the photos in my parent's wedding album. They were married 62 years ago today. All of the people in this photo are gone but not forgotten and I have photos of all of their gravestones.

This is the photo of the wedding lunch at my grandparent's house on a very icy, snowy December day.

A note: This is my grandparent's dining room. I remember the window behind where my parents are standing. That's where the bird feeders were. Grandpa (I called him Bop) and I used to sit and he'd use the Audubon Guide to teach me the birds. He gave me the bird guide for my 2nd birthday. I still have the silver creamer and sugar dish. But, where have I put them?

Happy Anniversary to your Mom and Dad! It must have been a beautiful wedding, for the photo is beautiful! It's so wonderful to remember these events. Thanks for honoring them with us!

Great picture. I'll bet that is a white milk glass piece by Westmoreland - the compost on the left probably with mints or nuts being served in it. Can't wait to see all of those photos you're scanning.

Hello Midge-
I stumbled upon your blog and I really like what you are doing to remember your family and your family's life events.
