Heck, after 40 years of living together - let them do whatever they want!(in case you are wondering why there are three times listed, there was a little bit of a question as to the actual wedding time in 1969.)
The top of the cake had my first attempt at roses (since they were in the bouquet) as well as a happy couple :) and hearts to mark the date & time. The side of the cake was decorated with hearts bearing the name of each of the 3 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. It was a pretty crowded cake!
Congrats to my in-laws on their anniversary. What a commitment!
Lastly - a picture of the cousins together. All the girls were in matching dresses. My daughter was hot, tired, and not wanting to participate. At least she wasn't screaming or trying to crawl off the couch in this one! But look at the rest of them - what darlings!!!
