My husband's parents, Wes and Evelyn Hutchens, are celebrating their 45th anniversary today! We are so proud of them! They have remained faithful and dedicated to the Lord and each other all these years. I'm always amazed at how well they fit each other. Dad is busy, talkative, teasing, and passionate about his beloved Jamaicans; Mom is also busy, but she's more calm and quiet and always has a suggested solution for any problem you have. She's also passionate about Jamaica, but in a quieter way than Dad! ;) I see traits of them both in my husband and children. Wes is much like his mother in temperament, but he has his nutty side like his dad. Samuel and Beth have their dad's & grandmother's quiet personality, and Andrew has his grandpa's outrageous sense of humor. Isn't it amazing and wonderful how God allows family traits to trickle down through the generations? Here is the most recent picture I have of my in-laws, from when Beth visited them in July:
Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad! We love you!
P.S. I think Mom deserves an award for living with Dad all these years! ;)
