I bought these cute felt envelopes a year ago at the after Valentine’s Day sales. They are about 9 x 12. Addy got some leggings, long sleeve tees and a book plus a little stuffed Valentine bear.
Jaymison got some clothes and a stuffed Valentine doggy.
I got to babysit early this morning while Dan and Jamie went out for breakfast.
JJ was asleep and woke up after his parents were gone and I was relieved he didn’t seem to mind that they were gone and that I was on morning duty. He ate all his breakfast for Baba.
Addy came out to the living area after waking up and before her folks headed out the door. She was fine staying with Baba, too. We read her new book and waited for JJ to wake up. The photos I have of her are from yesterday when we did some baking together with her mommy and while JJ had a nap.
Baba, take a picture of the chocolate!
And I cannot forget my Dear who has been my very favorite Valentine since 1972!
We are eating in today having steak, baked potatoes, butternut squash and something green. A Strawberry Boston White Creme cake/pie for dessert that called out to me at Safeway Grocery Store. It was only $5.00 today. Speaking of calling out when I was shopping in the aisles I heard a familiar little voice say, “there’s Baba!” What fun it is to live in a small country town and be able to bump into our loved ones at the stores!! Addy and I had some unexpected extra time for hugs and a kiss. Hope you have a day and weekend filled with lovely things.

I’m glad you had a lovely day. It’s a blessing to have your two grandchildren living close by, watch them grow and develop. Those times that you look after them and have fun together are special. This is a heartwarming blog post Ellen.
Hello, sweet photos of your grandbabies. They are adorable. I hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy your weekend.
What special Valentines you have! That’s a wonderful surprise bumping into your loved ones in the store! My oldest son and his wife live ten minutes away so when they have babies I have that to look forward to. Also their children will go to my school where I teach!💗😄
So very special. You are blessed indeed. Love the picture of you and dear.
Such sweetness all around! Love those
Yes, I can tell you are reveling in all that family time. Sweet times indeed!
