Wednesdays With My Mom

My beautiful, beautiful parents! While my parents were engaged, they decided to buy a nice camera so they'd have it for their wedding day, honeymoon and documenting their new life together. They both got very involved in this new hobby. They played around with all the settings and lighting, etc. This picture below was an experiment...they were facing a mirror.
Below is the cutie who performed at the clubhouse today. He was adorable in every way. He had a beautiful voice as well. He was singing 'Somewhere My Love' here.
Keeping beat to the polka. : )
Ooh...one of my favorite cuties at the community--Marge. She never hesitates to get up all by herself to dance when a polka is being played. She informed my mom and me that she used to be a dancer.

Mom in her beautiful new shirt that my sister took her shopping for. My Mom loves to shop at Coldwater Creek. Thanks June!
Tonight while getting some shopping done at Walmart, my mom said, "This is so fun." How cute is that??? : )

What beautiful pics your parents took of themselves. They really look like they're in the movies.

It's so nice to see all the fun stuff you do with your mom. She's such a cuitepatootie! And I must say this beautiful post hit home for me.

Those times remind me of the times we spent with my mother-in-law. She was in a nursing home and fortunately it was right next door to Wal-Mart and a steak house. I remember all those times we'd push her (in her wheelchair) to Wal-Mart and take her to the steak house. It was not easy getting around with her as she was an amputee and then a double amputee at the end so we couldn’t load her in a car but she was always happy for us to wheel her around. She passed away this year and the memories we have with her are beautiful.

Blessings - Debbie

Those pictures are beautiful. Everyone looked so much classier back then. And the women looked so gorgeous and put together, sometimes I wish that's how things were today. I love this post!
