Not Yet....

It's been a busy week, but in the very best sense. Over 100 family members descended on our little town to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. They met in junior high in Downey, California and Mom would poke Dad's neck with her pencil in French class. I'd say that's as good as start as any. 50 years! Isn't that impressive? I'm immensely proud of my 14 years; only 36 more to go. I've had houseguests-13 of them to be exact. My favorites are the littlest guests, like my two month old nephew Davy, and my 5 month old niece Sunny. I wish the babies would move in permanently. Some of my houseguests left yesterday, and some have lingered longer. It will be one more day of celebration around here. And that is why I say not yet.

Chocolate Souffle? Not yet. (Hopefully tonight)


Clean House? Not yet. (Maybe sometime in the next decade)


School for the kids? Not yet. (Tomorrow definitely)


50 years of marriage? Not yet. (In 2045, fingers crossed)


Be back tonight with that chocolate souffle....

Congrats to the folks! They should seriously write a book (along with you kids) full of funny stories, recipes, LA farm life experiences, and how to clean a neck properly - I hear Spray 'N Wash works wonders. What a graet family you have Prudy! :)

Today is my mama and daddy's 53 wedding anniversary. We had such a good time planning and having their 50 anniversary party 3 years ago.

Happy anniversary to your parents! How wonderful! Sounds like a perfect family weekend - the souffle can wait (but it is awfully good, whenever you get to it!)

Jennifer said...

Wow that is so great! I have such fond memories of you parents back in Whittier. My favorite was the sourdough bread your mom made in the dutch oven at Girls camp. Send them my love.

Congratulations to your Mom and Dad! This year we hit 21. Wow, it goes soooo fast. I bet your parents would say the same thing. Sending my love to all your family -

Congrats to Mom & Dad; we only have 20 more to go to that magical milestone. Remember, my answer to clean house is "sorta"; as long as the kids are around, the answer, sadly, is never truly "Yes!"

Please there must a better picture of that aging couple? That woman cannot be recognized. Help!!

Jennifer said...

What a wonderful post! Enjoy time with family!

Must be anniversary season! Last month was my parent's 51st and my 13th. Sounds like you've had a fabulous time - definitely worth waiting a little more time for a souffle, and MOST definitely worth a messy home.
