Happy 50th Anniversary Mom & Dad!

I apologize to all of you who've been wondering why I disappeared. A few days after my birthday was Mr. LuckyGirl's birthday, then my parents' wedding anniversary, so we've been partying! The anniversary meant a road trip, and although we came home on Tuesday, it always takes me a few days to recover.

We held a party in a pavillion at a local club so there'd be room for all of the guests. We had over a hundred friends and relatives there, and it was great to see so many folks come out to celebrate with us. The photo above is a near-life-size plastic standup I had made from a small wedding photo. I was thrilled with how well it turned out! The folks at did an awesome job!

Here's a shot of Mom and Dad posing with their flat selves from yesteryear. The flat people were shipped folded, so they were easy to transport. Once we attached the easels to the back it became impossible to fold them again, so now Mom and Dad get to look at a giant wedding photo every day (as do all of their neighbors!).

That is such a neat idea-the full size cut-outs!! And "50" is a really big deal so it sounds like you all celebrated right!

Very cool. I wish I'd thought of that for my parent's 40th. I'll have to keep it in mind for the future.

Wow I apologize for being so late on posting my congratulations to you and your parents.

But, we have had 2 solid weeks of rain and dropping and blog hopping has been almost impossible for me.

50 years is truly an amazing accomplishment. My husband's parents made it to their 50th too!!

It sounds like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us!!

Also Happy belated birthday! I hope you have a great weekend!!
