Thankful Thursday - And they call it puppy love...

As strange as it may be - it all started with a dog.  Well, there was a mutual attraction too, but the first time Mom met Dad, he stood at the back of her truck petting her dog, Rowdy.  They spent four hours together that first night and were inseparable ever after.  Four months later they were married on Mom's lunch break.  Fourteen years later, here we are.

Mom and Dad have a love story that is better than any you see depicted in movies.  What they have is real and beautiful.  It hasn't always been easy, but it's always been worth it.

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!  We are thankful for the love and life God has blessed you both with.

We helped the kids put together a special scrapbook for their big day.  Here are some of the pictures:
