20 and 50

This summer marked two anniversaries, just 11 days apart.  My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and eleven days later, it was the 50th anniversary of my in-law's wedding.  All the  brothers and sisters and children gathered in our town to help Grandpa through a bittersweet day.

First we all gathered together that morning for Sunday's service.  These were the flowers that David and I put on the altar for these special occasions.  The flowers at my wedding were daisies while my mother-in-law had giant mums.  I think the bouquets turned out beautifully.

After church everyone came to our house.  Last year David and I rearranged our basement to make better use of the couch and chair we inherited from his brother.  When we finished, we thought it would make a great space for people to gather and enjoy watching a movie together or sleep-overs, or games.  As you can see, some of the cousins put it to the test.

Both these pictures give me a big smile and make me happy.
