Seems Sundays are mom and I's chosen day to work on the scrapbook. At times it seems a little stressful because of all the work we have ahead of us and the not so many days that we have to work on it but then again it's such a fun project! Today we got another spread done...one of my great grandparent's wedding/anniversaries and one of my grandparents wedding. Enjoy!
The Marriage of Calvin & Edna Mae
We got married on Friday, March 31, 1950 at 8:00. Cal always said he would always know when the 50th anniversary was. Unfortunately he did not get to celebrate it. The real reason we married then was because it was pay day! We were married at the Lutheran Parsonage in Greenfield, IA. Eileen ‘Jameson’ Armstrong and Emmett Lowery stood up with us. Reverend Volgel married us. I wore a white dress (size 7), black shoes and hat. Cal had on a brown suit. The only funny thing (and we found out about this later) is that Raymond Means and Cal’s sister Betty crawled up to the window and peeked in.
For our honeymoon, we went to Topeka and Alma Kansas to see a Navy buddy of Cal’s. Then 1 year later they came to see us when they got married (never knew what happened to them after that). On the way home on April 4th, 1950 we ran into a big snow storm and had to stay with an old lady in an old house - creepy!
