70 years!

If you can believe it my dear Grandma and Grandpa Leavitt have been married a whole 70 years. My Grandpa just celebrated his 95th birthday and then the next day they had there 70 year anniversary. We had a celebration at the silk purse last night and it was lovely. I was worried that we weren't going to be able to make it because Sophie has been sick sick with the pukes. I was throwing up all day thursday and then poor little Sophie got it Friday and she was still throwing up a little on Saturday morning. She perked up around 3:00 so we headed in to the big party. My Grandma and Grandpa Leavitt are the most darling couple I know. They have the cutest ways of showing there love for eachother and an incredible zest for life. They are both
90+ and still live in there own home in the country and my Grandpa still drives his car and rides his horse. I had to give a lesson on Charity a few years ago and the first person that came to my mind was my Grandma Leavitt. She is such a sensitive lady with so much love for her family, friends, ward members and especially her savior. I can bet that every cousin in the family feels like they are the favorite because that is how my Grandma makes them feel. My Grandpa has a really funny/corny personality just like my dad that is always keeping us laughing. He is so flirty with my Grandma.. they still act like newlyweds. Anyway I know that they are keeping eachother young and I wouldn't be suprised if we were celebrating there 75 year in 5 years.

Kara and Watson at the anniversary party. Watson stuffed a whole entire brownie in his mouth.. So Tanner!

Kara is creepy! I think this pic is funny! I love the look on everyones faces.

This is my cousin, Katrinas cute little Nya.

Watson is such a kisser. Benita was pretty happy about this one!
I love this! this is SOO Watson and Sophie! He gets so excited to see her that he just wants to hug her and touch her. Sophie isn't too happy about it. I love my moms face!
Kara and Benita Cute girls!We had Ben and Kristi over last week. It was so much fun getting together with them finally. Kaia is so cute and so much fun. It got me REAL excited about having my little girl in a few months!! I know that they will be the greatest friends.
Sophie absloutly adores Grace. They are so cute together... such typical little girls. Playing with dollies and giggling. It made me so happy. The funniest thing was when Sophie started pulling all the crayons out of the container and started throwing them all on the ground. It was seriously stressing Grace out to the maximum.. she was busily trying to pick every last one of them up in an attempt to clean up the big mess. It was hilarious to see there opposite little personalities. Sophie could seriously learn a thing or two about being tidy from Gracie that's for sure.

How Cute. I hope I can celebratethat many years with my hubby. But only if I can still drive and go to the bathroom by myself. Oh and I hear you are in my Dads ward? Kinda cool, maybe when we come up to visit we should track you guys down!

70 years already! WOW! Treasure every moment you have with them because you never know when things will change. We celebrated Chet and Audrey's 65th in October, and then he passes away just a short 1 1/2 months later. Those two girls are so cute together!!
