Any Excuse For A Get-Together - Valentines 2011

We have the good fortune of having both our daughters and their families living within a few miles from our home, so we get to see them often.  Because of this locality, we are usually together on the weekends and take every opportunity to celebrate and make our time special.  This weekend, we celebrated Valentines Day and as usual provided our GBs with some small tokens of our love...they are definetly our Valentines. 

There is no day that goes by that is not enlightened by the smiles and laughter of one of our precious babies...Daughters and Son-In-Laws included.  It is such a joy to spend time with them and have the heart of our family in sync.  It is so easy to enjoy a good life when you have such sweet family to share it with. 

Of course, we took the opportunity to eat the South, every reason is an end to a good meal.  We kept it simple with Chicken and vegetable kabobs on the grill and a big pot of Dilled Red Potatoes. 

You can't have a Valentines Day celebration without a little chocolate, so we indulged in a Chocolate Caramel cake.  Yummy. 

How did you celebrate Valentines Day this year?

Your little one in the first picture looks like he's going to eat the wrapper and all, Anita! : ) Too cute! That cake looks sinfully delicious.

You are so lucky to have everyone close. My daughter is 1000 miles away and while I know it is best for her...I hate it! I miss her so much. That cake looks amazing!

We had dinner at home tonight. My husband has a birthday this week too, so we are going out to eat Thursday. We decided not to fight the crowds tonight!

Having the grandkids close is a blessing! 2 of mine live in Knoxville but 4 live about 2 miles from me:) I see them a LOT! YUMMY looking goodies, that cake is making me SO hungry this morning!

You GKs are precious! Have a blessed day and thanks for visiting me! HUGS!

It looks like you did the same thing we did with our 4 grands for Valentine's Day. It is a gift to live so close isn't it? Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. Come back any time.
