Could It Really Be Five Years?

So, six weeks or so after they started dating, our soon to be first son-in-law came and asked my husband and I if he could marry our daughter. This was the first time we had this experience. We were a little taken aback. Could he possibly know in that short a time that he loved our daughter enough to want to spend the rest of his life with her? The good news was that they wouldn't be getting married for about 15 months or so. We said yes. Good decision! They married on October 9, 2004. They are a perfect couple. They have their ups and downs like any married couple, but they really love each other. You can just see it when they are together. They work as a team. They compliment each other in so many ways. Just perfect! On May 21, 2006, they blessed us with our first granddaughter. On October 28, 2008, we were once again blessed with another granddaughter. On approximately April 24, 2010, they will bless us once again with grandchild number three. They are such a sweet and loving family and they make the most beautiful babies ever. I couldn't be happier that we had the presence of mind to say yes to his request. Happy Anniversary guys. I love you both with all my heart. You make me very proud.

    That's what they know.
