Our Anniversary Quilt

I told you yesterday I'd tell you about the wonderful gift Liz & Beka made for us for our Anniversary. It's a quilt....and a family history all rolled into one! It has pictures of us as children, with our siblings, our kids, our parents and our grandchildren. I didn't get a photo of the whole thing, but here are four shots. Some didn't photograph very well, but you'll get the idea. I'm still pretty speechless...hard to believe. Pictured are the girls at various ages, a picture of Bill and I 10 days after we met and 3 days AFTER we were engaged! I was 3 weeks out of High School and Bill was barely 21. Two years later we married and the kids just kept us busy. Now we are enjoying the next generation. Thanks are not enough, Liz & Beka. Your Dad and I love it. We shed quite a few tears over it. Love to you.

Oh My Gosh Brenda. I can't even wrap my mind around my girls doing something like that for me. WOW! I cry just thinking about it, so I can imagine how you and Mr Scottie Dog must've carried on! I hope we can see it in real life tonight.

What a treasure!! And even more so that they were working on this without your knowledge!! Congrats on your years together. You raised a fine family and at such a young age when you began your your life together, you have created a legacy of love and commitment!
