Happy Birthday Mom and Dad!

We interrupt the regularly scheduled images of Vermont today to celebrate a milestone..............

Being able to celebrate your 90th birthday is a gift. Being able to celebrate your 90th birthday with your husband/wife is a blessing that very few people are able to experience. However, celebrating YOUR 90th birthday on the same day as your husband/wife is extraordinary!!!!!
The folks turned 90 years old today. Yes, that's right........they share the same birthday.......same day........same year!!!!
These two have seen so much in their lifetime and the world is a totally different place today than it was when they were kids. But one thing has always remained the same.... and that is their love for each other, their love of their families, and their faith in God.

We celebrated with a birthday lunch this afternoon.

The official party will be taking place with a family dinner at one of their favorite restaurants this Saturday. But we just had to kick off the festivites on the big day!
We are truly blessed!
My Mom told me the first thing she said to Dad this morning when she woke up was "WE MADE IT"!
Yes Mom, you sure did and we couldn't be any happier. We love you both !!!!!!


  1. Happy Birthday Mom & Dad White!!!!

    Having each each other at 90 yrs old has to be best birthday present ever! I'm so happy for you & your family.

  2. Thanks Diane! It's a very special day.......and as you know........just a few short months ago we weren't sure if this day was going to turn out this happy. It just wouldn't be right if they both weren't here to celebrate. We are blessed for sure!
