Annual Family Get Together Tonight
Saturday, February 24, 2018
Some years ago, I started doing a "love dinner". My kids and grandkids celebrating Love. I get the grandkids something (which is getting harder with all but one a teenager). The four grand daughters get a heart necklace this year. And all get a small valentine treat. Last year I had an
Italian food theme. This year I did a Tex-Mex theme. My daughter brought a Mexican wedding cake and my DIL brought taco salad. The high point was when I asked the kids to draw a picture depicting "love." I know it was a hard assignment, but they were real troopers and each did a fine job. We adults were watching a movie called "Wed-Locked". When they were done, after dinner, we paused the movie and had dessert. Yes, I went over my calories, but my nutrients were pretty well evened out.
It is so nice to be with family and share. The kids now ask their Moms when we are going to do our 'special' dinner. I hope you all have something special to do with your families.
Already wondering what theme to have for next year.
