40 years and counting

Nate's parents celebrated 40 years in December.  For their anniversary they wanted a dinner with just the adults and a picture opportunity with the whole family, which we turned into a sledding day. 
 
How cute are these cousins...OH MY.  I love this bunch of kiddos.
 

It ended up being the perfect Minnesota winter day, full of a sunshine, a beautiful walk and some awesome sledding runs.

 
The kids had such a blast, as they always do, with the cousins.


And Grandma and Grandpa ate it up.  They have so much fun with the kids....


...and boy do the kids adore them.

 
Dan and Shelley are an amazing couple.  They have taught us so much about marriage and parenting through their own example.  As adults it has been so fun to get to know them on a new level.  They are some of our biggest encouragers and prayer supporters.  Happy Anniversary.  We love you.
 
 
Some of theirs (and our) wedding verses...

Philippians 2:1-11

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
