Bad Daughter, I Forgot # 47!!!!

Tuesday, June 16th was my parents 47th Wedding Anniversary and once again I forgot it.
Why I can never seem to remember this date is beyond me.
My mom's birthday in June 11th and I never forget that one, but the anniversary is always the one I forget. And of course, they always reminded me that I forgot it either late at night or the next day. Now one would think that my sister would remind me of this date but she is as reliable as I am.

My Mom met my Dad when she was 14 years old and they started dating soon after. My Dad was 16 at the time. They were married in 1962. A few years later they bought their first home, actually the home that they still live in today and I came along in 1967 and then my sister in 1974. If I am not mistaken I believe they paid like $19,500 for their first home and the house payment was like $120 a month.......lets see how many times I would have to multiple that to get my house payment.....LOTS!! The picture above was taken 2 years ago when we went to Vermont.

On June 11th, my sister and her kids and I had lunch and cake at Mom and Dad's to celebrate her birthday. We even got a Dairy Queen cake......Gracie had to have a second piece because her slid off her plate and Dixie was there to save it:) I got my mom some stuff from B & Body and some gardening stuff that Dad said she does not need.

My Mom made this very cute sign for my chicken coop a couple of weeks ago.....I did not get that painting gene btw. Tomorrow we the 3 of us are heading Amish Country so I can get grain and other "stuff". I am thinking I should take them to lunch as a belated anniversary gift............
and I am setting my cell phone calendar so I do not forget the 48th Anniversary!!!!
