50 Years

Wes' parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Thursday, December 15th.  In honor of this, we hosted a small dinner party at our house.  It ended up being a lovely, very low key evening... perfect for Mae and Glenn.  Wes put together a really sweet slide show with lots of family photos, Tiffany made a couple of special cakes and Nicole and I made the dinner.  I was actually in charge of making the Deti Family Spaghetti recipe.  I've eaten this delicious sauce plenty of times over the years, but I've never actually made it before.  I did not want to mess it up.  As I was preparing it in the morning, I called both of Wes' sisters a couple of times just to double check that I was doing certain things correctly.  Even with all of those phone calls, guess what?!  I still screwed it up!  Just as I threw in the last meatball into the sauce I realized that I had forgotten the cracker crumbs!  Aaaargh!  Needless to say, I was a little bugged with myself, but all turned out fine.  There's always next time...  Here's a few pictures of the evening.
Dylan was being helpful and tossing the salad.

Karin! I know Travis! We went to high school together and were really good friends. How fun to see him on your blog!

Oh, and his wife used to work with my dad. It really is a small world!
