December in this country is usually cold but this year it is entirely different. We have not had any snow or ice. During the day most of the times it is around or above 10 degrees Celsius. Very strange.

Now, next week it is our 55th wedding anniversary and I remember 5 years ago we had the most ever snow falling in one night in this country. And that was the  day we were having our anniversary party. What a day.

I was looking through my photo's and memories came back. Thought I would show you some.

I usually don't show much from my private life but for once it is alright.

View from our window.

The next day
dh getting the car ready to get to the shops.

Me and all my men. I believe they were telling somebody to do a better job.;)))

Thank you.

Thank you to the hosts.

Doordat jullie toen een bijzondere feestdag vierden, is die sneeuw wel blijven hangen...meestal is dat een heel handig ezelsbruggetje. Van harte gefeliciteerd met jullie 55e trouwdag...ook al verwachten we deze keer niet zoveel sneeuw, het is absoluut een mijlpaal. Ik hoop dat jullie nog lang in goede gezondheid van elkaar mogen blijven genieten.

Liefs, Ingrid

Alvast van harte gefeliciteerd met dit bijzondere huwelijksjubileum Riet! Als ik me niet vergis is 55 jaar ' Diamant'?
Nog vele jaren in goede gezondheid gewenst samen met je man en jullie mooie gezin!

Madelief said...

Lieve Riet, Van Harte Gefeliciteerd met jullie bijzondere jubileum. 55 getrouwd is niet niks. Je ziet er prachtig uit op de foto! Het jasje en de rok staan je heel mooi.

Op de volgende 5 jaar...en de burgemeester :-)

Fijne week!

Liefs, Madelief x

Nice to see your family . . .
I hope your 55th anniversary presents less snow than the 50th . . .
Weather here has been like springtime . . . Today it was 63 F . . .
Some of my outdoor plantings are beginning to pop up like it is spring . . .
Very strange . . .

Goh lieve Riet, daar werd ik nou gewoon een beetje stil van. Wat bijzonder en wat een rijkdom al je mannen! Volgende week 55 jaar en zeg nou zelf, dat hoor je toch niet veel meer. Geluk zit vaak in kleine dingen maar geluk is ook een fijn gezin. Mooi.

Voor volgende week wens ik jullie ook een fijne dag en weet je, de weerman van een regionale omroep voorspelde dat het heel goed mogelijk is dat het sneeuwt met Kerst : )))))

Hoe dan, ik ben blij voor jullie en leuk Riet dat je dit wilde delen!

Lieve groet en ja, een knuffel van Pink.

Happy Anniversary! And I enjoyed seeing your photos. What a handsome bunch of men you have close by! I have four grown sons, too. Hard to believe they are all so grown up. Hugs, Diane

Happy 55th! That's quite a milestone. You must have had a Christmas wedding. It's nice to see some snow scenes, we don't seem to be having winter in our half of the US so far.

SmilingSally said...

Hello Riet,

Please forgive me for calling you the wrong name; of course I know you're Riet!

I am impressed with how pretty you are with your guys. And I'm pleased that you're enjoying a mild winter.

I like your blues; thanks for sharing.

Happy Blue Monday.

SmilingSally said...

And . . . a very happy anniversary!

Ann said...

Josephine said...

Ohhhhh lieve Rietje wat een PRACHTIGE witte wereld
was het op die speciale dag 5 jaar geleden.
Dat uitzicht vanuit jullie raam, zo MOOI.

Wat bijzonder leuk om jou met al je mannen te kunnen bekijken
op die super mooie foto. Wens jullie volgende week
een onvergetelijke dag toe, en als de temperaturen zo
omhoog blijven gaan wordt het dit jaar misschien wel
in badkleding, hihi.

Een DIKKE 55 jarige mijlpaal kus van mij voor jullie saampjes.

Veel liefs,

Happy 55th Wedding Anniversary to you and your husband! That is wonderful and a great milestone. The photo of you and all your men is great. I hope you don't have a big storm like on your 50th but I also hope you might have a white Christmas. Enjoy and have a blessed Christmas season. Pam

What a wonderful day....I am so glad you shared it...that is a lot of snow although here it would be one little winter storm. We do not have snow either and that is so strange. Wishing you a Happy 55th Anniversary!

How beautiful with all the snow. The autumn and winter so far has been abnormally warm everywhere in Europe, I think.
Happy anniversary!

The snow looks lovely, we don't get it like that here. I'll bet it was a nightmare getting to your venue for your celebrations. Congratulations on 55 years marriage.

I love seeing your most handsome family dear Riet! What good looking men they all are...and such a beautiful mother and wife. They must feel very lucky to have you! Congratulations on 55 yrs of marriage! A life well lived too!
What a gorgeous view you are able to enjoy every day! I am so thankful to know this. You have always been so kind and dear to me and reading your blog and seeing this post has given me more of an understanding of who you are.
Thank you so much for being such a lovely friend to a lady who lives in rural Idaho, USA!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
sending hugs to you...
