25th Anniversary Celebrations!

Our kids, with the help of their Grandmothers, put together the best Anniversary celebration you could ever ask for. I believe someone said we had a count of 67 in attendance! The atmosphere was casual and friendly. Everyone brought a pot luck dish and we shared a wonderful meal together. We are blessed to have so many friends and family that wanted to share in our celebration! A highlight of the evening was a slide show prepared by my son, complete with music - including the music from our first dance on our wedding day.
This is a picture of my family - my son, myself, my husband, and my daughter.

This is a picture of the members of my husband's family that were in attendance. Quite a crowd--and they all weren't there!

This is a picture of me, my mother, my dad, and my brother. My brother and his family traveled down from the interior of the province in order to celebrate with us. My brother did an excellent job of the role of MC. He was very gentle in the stories he chose to share.

This is a picture of my aunt and my mother--they are sisters. My aunt traveled all the way from Saskatchewan to join us. She was in the original bridal party so it was great to see her here!


  1. What a wonderful celebration! Happy anniversary again, and here's to 25 more years!

  2. Looks like a great party and fabulous way to celebrate remembering a special day. Was it 25 years? That's what Jeanne says in her comment but I couldn't find that anywhere in your post. Maybe I'm just blind this morning.

  3. heeheehee--Patti--did you get up too early this a.m? it's the title! Just havin' a little fun with ya. :) Anyway--congratulations Norma to you and your hubby! Here's to another 25!

  4. Finally there is a post on the event! I've been waiting- Dana and Matt invited me, but because it was a day sooner than I arrived back in Vancouver, I could not make it. I also could not tell if the party was a surprise, so I didn't send my good wishes for the weekend (now you see why I was anxiously waiting??). Sounds like you had a good time- Madeline said something about yorur wedding dress and going away outfit being there too- where do you stash all this stuff??? Happy belated anniversary.

  5. Yep! I guess I got up too early yesterday. This morning I spotted it in the title right away. Duh! One thing I'm not is observant!
