Fiftieth Anniversary party

I am out in Utah again and have been for about a month. I will take a few posts and update on my happenings. My parent's fiftieth anniversary party went great. Here are a few pictures.

Diane and her family with mom and dad
Julie and her family with mom and dad
The whole gang. We were only missing 3 grandsons, 2 of whom are on missions and one had just started a new job and couldn't miss any days yet. The only other missing was my husband.
My parents have 32 grandkids and 6 great grandkids.
We had a sock hop. Here are a few pictures of the cake, decorations, and dancing.

Table as entering the cultural hall. My sister Blenda decorated this table. My sister Cindy was in charge of the decorations and did an amazing job.
I baked the cakes and my friend Glenda decorated this one. It was supposed to be similar to their wedding cake.

I found a juke box cake pan at Savers in Utah. We made 4 of these cakes. Julie, my niece Erin, and I shared in the decorating of them.
This is a picture of my grandpa who is 103 years young and his children. Ben is the oldest on the left, Bette is the middle child and in the middle, my dad is youngest and on the right.
