40 years... Whew!
They dated for five months.
On February 19, 1972, they said "I do" in a little church with only a handful of witnesses. Mom wore a purple, velvet dress. :) She was almost 19 years old... Dad, almost 20.
Of course, their real joy began four years later, when I was born...
... but let's not make this about me. :)
I love this pic. My mom still makes this SAME expression of embarrassment/frustration when someone tries to take her picture. She absolutely despises to have her picture taken... .and then she has ME for a daughter... go figure.
We treated my dad and mom to a dinner at the Ketteman house... to enjoy their favorite main courses with the whole family (unfortunately, one of my sisters ended up home with sick kiddos... :(
And there they are now... 40 years, 6 children (1 in heaven), 2 sons in law, 1 daughter in law, and 6 grandchildren later. :) I'd say they have a lot to show for all of their hard work and love throughout the years... Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. We all love you so very much!
