Happy Anniversary to Mom and Dad

Today is our mom and dad's 36th wedding anniversary! We told you they were as old as the hills!

Mitch and I wish that we could have been at their wedding but we weren't even born yet - heck, neither were our fur moms and dads! It's sure fun looking at all of their wedding photos though! They both look so much younger!Here's a tintype of the happy couple! They were both just teenagers when they said, "I do!"

Mitch and I have decided to take them out to City Fish for fish-n-chips and for dessert - ice cream! That's a good plan, don't you think?

Mom and dad honeymooned in New Orleans one week before Mardi Gras! They should have planned it better! It would have been so much more exciting if they could have waited just one more week! Mom and dad have never been to mardi gras but mom's brother has been many times and he sent us beads that they toss off the floats at the parades!

Mitch is trying figure how how to get these mardi gras beads over his head! What a goof!

Happy Mardi Gras to all of you and happy anniversary to our mom and dad!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Happy Anniversary, M & M's pawrents! 36 years is a very long time! Our pawrents will have their 29th, this year, and we thought THAT was a long time! We think Khyra is right...36 must be the ice cream anniversary! Have a great time!

Hi Maggie and Mitch! Aw, your parents look so young and sweet in that picture...My mom said to tell them it just keeps getting better - they'll have their 41st next year, and they say if they're lucky they'll get to spend it with Zeke and me - but they still won't let me get that close to their wedding pictures! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Happy Anniversary to your Mum and Dad, dear Maggie and Mitch!

Wow, the photo of them was so cool!

My J says they have 4 years more wedded bliss than she has, they are 32 years this year. Like your Mum, my Jeannie was but a child bride.

Lovely pictures, and I hope you enjoy the fish and chips, plus the ice cream (which I still have never eaten!).

We love fish and chips here, it is our National Dish.........mmmmmmm

We eat ours with Mushy Peas and Pickled Eggs (no accounting for tastes eh?) lotsaluv from Marvin xxxxx

Many good wishes from Jeannie xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Happy Anniversary to you both!!

Stanley said...


Your mama & dad may be old as the hills, but they still look like they're just teen babies... or maybe just a little older than that. Please give them both extra juicy goob smooches from me in celebration of their love!

Out of curiosity, how did you pay for dinner and the ice cream? No matter what your answer to that question I'm sure it was tasty tasty!

Goober love & smooches,

Pee Ess
You guys & Putter were so thoughtful to do something for Klaus' nursies too! VERY cool.
