So, Gregory J, over at Living My Life, Whatever, tagged me for this little “exercise”. Should be fun so I will play along. Here are the rules:
Now… I have to admit… I cheated “a little”… but only because my first photo file was downloaded from our digital camera that my #3 uses all the time and it was all pictures of her friends and the #10 was not appropriate, plus I have no clue what it was about and could not explain it if I tried! SO… I went to the open general folder and went to the 10th pic and it was something someone sent me, again, no clue how to explain it so I picked the NEXT pic… which is the one above. Now that I’ve gotten that LONG drawn out explanation of why I cheated out of the way!!! Now, I can ‘splain the picture.
This is a photo the the “wedding” cake my Hubby (wonderful and generous man that he is) made for my mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary 10 years ago. For their 50th anniversary, my mom and dad decided to renew their vows. Ok… collective AWWWWWW. Yea, it was very sweet. We all (meaning all 6 kids and my sisters-in-law) all got to stand up with them as their “attendants” while they recited their renewal vows. Aren’t we just a sappy bunch? It was VERY emotional for me… not sure about my siblings.
Anywho… my mom and dad got married (originally) when my mom was only like 15 and she didn’t have a “formal” wedding gown nor did she have a “wedding cake”. I think she always felt “cheated” because she didn’t. Hubby knew this and thought she ought to have a proper one.. So, he labored for DAYS making the above cake for their renewal ceremony/anniversary party.
This picture was taken when she first saw the cake. In case you can’t tell by the picture, she is boo hooing her eyeballs out right there. My older sister is standing beside her admiring the cake. Hubby had made the cake and the two grooms cakes (sheet cakes to each side) for them. He wanted it to be a big splashy show of a cake. He wanted to make sure that wherever you sat in the room, you could see that cake! You could see it as soon as you walked in the door and wherever you sat.
In the background is my father, me (you can barely see my head beside my dad), hubby (he still had some dark hair!) and my little sister, SuziCate (in the pink).
We are now planning their 60th anniversary party for this summer (actual anniversary is September). Hubby asked me if he needed to make another wedding cake and I told him that I thought him doing the food was going to be quite enough! He is such a sweetheart. I am SO lucky to have married such a wonderful sweet man. He loves my mom and dad dearly and would do anything in the world to make them happy. That makes ME happy!
So, I am supposed to tag 5 people to participate…..let’s see who I can pick on! My pics are:
Ok guys! You’re tagged! Let’s see what you come up with!
