25th Wedding Anniversary Party

Hello. As most of you know, I have not been blogging for a while. Just have not had the time to create crafts and can't find much to blog about these days. I haven't been in my craft room for what seems like forever. I don't know how a lot of you keep up on your blogs, but I enjoy reading them and I have been keeping up with our Idea Box link party each week. Thank you to those who join us every week! I so enjoy seeing all your posts.


My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Our children held an open house at our church Saturday for the occasion. The actual anniversary date is this Wednesday, May 18th.


We were married in our early thirties in 1991. I was thirty one and Scott was thirty two. By the time our 50th anniversary rolls around, we will be in our eighties. Since we don't know what life might hold from now until then, we thought, why not celebrate our 25th. Besides, not too many couples make it to their 25th this day in age, right?

Today, I wanted to share some fun pictures with you of our celebration. My sweet daughters made some pretty and simple decorations for the party that I enjoyed so much. They have great talent in that way.


This sign greeted us at the entrance of our church. Our granddaughter wrote this out for us.

 

Sarah found the heart, mason jar and tins at Joann Fabrics and Crafts. She did a good job painting them.

They hung on each side of the refreshment station where they served cake, nuts & mints, and refreshing lemonade and water. I loved how simple this was.

Don't you love the mason jar jugs they used for the lemonade and water? Our church has an awesome kitchen to use for parties.


A simple cake too. Half chocolate, half white.                  My fun-loving uncle who was thirsty. (Lol).


Sarah made this sweet plaque for us with my wood burning tool! The silk flower is the boutonniere my husband wore on our wedding day. This is just one of the items of memorabila that the kids displayed at the party.



We  have a box that we keep our newspaper clippings, scrapbook, wedding cards, napkins, program bulletins, and pictures in. The guests enjoyed looking at the items. 


This is the actual unity candle that we lit at our wedding. 


Did you notice the burlap "love" baner on the front of the display?


Burlap & lace, fresh flowers & mason jars were the theme for the nice, simple party.


The little ones enjoyed 7 week old baby Eden. She sure was a hit.


We enjoyed having my mom at the party.


We appreciated all the work that our children did for us. We were so happy to see all our family and guests that could make it out on a cold, rainy day. We received so many cards. Even though we asked that gifts be omitted, we received some gift cards to our favorite places to eat.


Our children went together and gave us a hefty amount on a visa card for us to go on a vacation of our choice plus a visit to Tacoma, Washington in the fall!!

Here's to 25 more years of marriage!

Scott and Cyndee Christman

Let's Color!

Do you like to color? I color all the time. When I'm bored.When I'm watching t.v. When I want to relax. It calms me so much. I'm so glad that we now have "adult" coloring books that "older" people have to color.

Easter Pictures in 2016



 Here are a few pictures I took of my Easter flowers and decorations around my home.

There are not very many to share, like a home tour, but I wanted to share for fun!

This is one of the pretty Lily blooms that my mom gave me for Easter.







My pretty pink hydrangeas from 
my daughter, Melissa!

I can't wait to plant them. Hope I 
have good luck with these.

Bathroom/Laundry Room Part 4

Hi. Hope you all had a nice weekend. Today I'm sharing a little more of our Bathroom/Laundry Room Remodel (which is coming along slowly, as usual - lol).


 This is what this side of the room looked like before.


And here is how it looks now.


I painted the mirror black.

 The vanity and the cupboard I painted black, as well. I decided to keep the doors off of the cupboard and I want to add another shelf and add more items on the new shelf.


I purchased the soap container, the towel, and towel holder to add to the decorating.

The walls are painted in a light grey and the trim in white.


It is all coming along nicely, don't you think?


You can find more on my Bathroom/Laundry Room herehere, and hereThank you for the visit. Hope to have more for you on this project soon.
