Happy Valentine's Day Blogland!!! Last evening Dick brought me roses and was going to take me out for a nice dinner, but we couldn't get reservations until 9 p.m. By the time we got home to get ready, we were so darned tired that we decided to cancel the reservations and get a takeout to eat at home and watch the Olympics. Guess it doesn't matter what you do as long as you're together!
What would any holiday be without M&M's!!!???
Great card from our Abbey!

Today has been a busy day (after I slept until 10 a.m.!). Our granddaughter Caroline was baptised and we were able to share in this celebration. Her two older brothers (Jack and Gannon) and big sister Ellie were pretty excited.
Ellie and her new haircut - she is my little Peanut.
Caroline getting baptised.
Poor little Jack was so tired, he missed the whole thing. He got on my lap with his blanket and was out in about one minute. Isn't he beautiful?
Uncle Rich (Godfather) and Caroline after the ceremony.
Daughter Amanda and her wonderful family.

Amanda, Greg, Caroline, Jack, Ellie and Gannon with the priest that performed the ceremony.
After we left the church, we went up to visit my dad for Valentine's Day. We took him some cards, pictures and a big heart box of candy. Sure wish I could bring him home with me!
Now it's time to settle in, cook a good steak dinner and relax for the evening. I hope all of you are with the ones you love and have a cozy evening.
Until next time...
