A New Tradition

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to you! Last year I invited our two daughters and eight granddaughters over for lunch while grandpa took the three boys out to lunch. It was so fun and I decided to do it again; this year we all decided that it was a tradition. First off, let me share the beautiful roses hubby bought me yesterday. You can also see lots of cards and several boxes of candy. My girlfriends and I all had the same idea-chocolate. While at See's(my all time favorite candy)I got hubby a box of Truffles. They will be a nice dessert for tonight's dinner.
The dining room all decked out and ready for the girls.
Kim brought a wonderful roasted butternut squash salad, I provided broccoli salad and Carrie brought a rustic bread.  Each of the girls picked one of their cousins names and made a special lunch for her.

The other end of the table.  Love our times together.
I also provided two Zest cakes from Whole Foods for all of us to enjoy.  Grandpa took the boys to Chic-Fil-A.
So many wonderful memories!  Thank you girls for bringing such love to our lives, thank you boys for making us laugh.
Joy to you!

  2. OH my! Noreen, this is so precious, I think it is awesome that you all have decided to make this a tradition! Ahh the memories that are made will go with these young ladies for ever, and they may continue this tradition as they become adults! And the memories your dh is making with the grandsons is so precious. too You have such a beautiful family!

  3. Happy Valentine's Day! Now that is a great tradition. See's is my favorite and I'm there every time they give me the $5 off coupons. I bought Mark a 1/2 pound of dark chocolate caramels. I like the nuts and chews, dark chocolate balls and English toffee or toffe-ettes. Have a wonderful weekend.
