70 + years

I was trying to get some pictures organized on my external hard drive, and I came across Court's granparent's 70th anniversary party pictures.  I can't believe I never posted any.  I think it is because they had the celebration the week before Christmas, and with Courts birthday and Christmas parties etc.  I completely forgot.  So here are a few, they are still soooo in love!  If I live this long, I want Court right by my side, looking at me like Ferrel looks at Helen.  They will be celebrating 71 years the first part of December...  CRAZY!

 70   years

 true love

Congrats on 70 years, and many more to come. :)

Grandma Merkley's Picture

This is a picture my Grandma Merkley took almost 29 years ago.  It is of my Grandpa and me, and it has always been one of my favorites.

Grandpa & Me 

On a side note, my 6 year old son has started sleep walking, time to put locks high up on the door.   I remember those days, I still sometimes, rarely.... but sometimes still have those days. 

He just came in our room and said "I can't see...." 


Then he went into our bathroom used the bathroom then comes out laughing harder than I think I have ever seen him laugh....  Court and I look at each other and just bust up... 

"What are you laughing about?" 

He keeps laughing as he goes into the living room and starts putting on his flip-flops, then takes them off and starts  jumping on a mattress that we have set in there,

he is still laughing... 

Court says "what are you laughing about?" 

Easton mumbles something about "a movie"  he is still jumping. 

Court says "go to bed." 

He still keeps jumping...

After he tells him two more times Easton turns and runs up the stairs to bed. 


I love that critter. 

BTW, don't worry, Court doesn't sleep on a mattress in the living room, we just got given it and the boys bed isn't finished so the mattresses are temporarily being stored in the living room... ha ha, I know you were all concerned.. ;)
