32 Years and Counting...

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Today my parents have been married for
32 years! My brother, sister and I are so blessed to have such loving parents--Even when they thought they were the worst parents ever, we knew better! We had an incredible childhood because of them! God gave us two amazing people to call "Mommy and Daddy".
They've stuck it out through the storms of life and for that we are
so grateful.

Here are some pictures of them through the years...

Before they said, "I do" -- Just kiddos here...

Their wedding day - 1977 -


Parenthood has arrived...

Our big sis, Kim, was just a baby when this picture was taken

Our little brother Drew was a few months old when this picture was taken


So in love

Already believers, but getting baptized together
...a public profession of faith

Their affection for each other, however small, never went unnoticed.

Dealing with the stages of life...

My wedding day...
In one summer, my parents gave both of their daughters away (within a month!), watched their baby boy graduate High School, and said good-bye to a parent.

30-year celebration getaway...

Still in love after all these years...

"Newlyweds become oldyweds,
and oldyweds are the reasons that families work."

The newest stage of life...

from "Daddy and Mommy" to "Grandpa and Grammy"!

Dad & Mom, you probably don't realize
how much you mean to our family.We love you bunches!! ~ We thank our Lord for you both and for the godly example you have set for us.

I hope you have a wonderful day as you look back on the last 32 years...



    Your parents truly are amazing. They really are a testimony to all those Christian couples out there!

    Congrats Calverts!
