Pink Saturday

Hello, My Name is Shelia and I'm a Grandmother!

My sweet friend BJ at Sweet Nothings suggested I post with this title and I took her up on it!
I'm a very new grandmother of the sweetest little lump of Pinkness you've ever seen. Are grandmothers biased? Well, maybe...

This is my little Pink grand daughter, Carter Ashlan. Isn't she adorable and so full of Pinkness? The sun was in her most tiny gorgeous peepers so she was saying, "Where are my Pink sunglasses, Pink Grandmommy?"


Here is my Dear Daughter and her Pink Hooter Hider! I made this contraption for her to nurse little Carter under. You can read about that post here.

This is my Pink baby holding her Pink baby who is my Pink grand baby. What could be more Pink and beautiful? In my Pink book, nothing, Dear Ones.

I'm joining our Most Pink Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Pop in to see her and your day will explode with Pinkness!

Now Dear Ones, one more bit of Pink. I would love to invite you to a party I'm having Friday, May 7. I am having a Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva Party. It will so much fun and I would love to see you there. You can click on the button like this one on my side bar to find out all about it.
Hope to see you there! :)







Be a bunch of Pink sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~this song makes me cry...

Butterfly Kisses lyrics

There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven
And she's daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk beside the pony daddy it's my first ride
I know the cake looks funny daddy but I sure tried

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every mornin'
And butterfly kisses at night

Sweet 16 today
She's lookin' like her mama a little more every day
One part woman the other part girl
To perfume and make up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
You know how much I love you daddy
But if you don't mind
I'm only gonna kiss you on the check this time

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every mornin'
And butterfly kisses at night

All the precious time
Like the wind the years go by
Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her aways
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinkin'
And I said I'm not sure
I just feel like I'm loosin' my baby girl
And she leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk me down the isle daddy
It's just about time
Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?
Daddy's don't cry

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every mornin'
And butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more than this is what love is
I know I've got to let her go but I'll always remember
Every hug in the mornin' and butterfly kisses
~ sung by Bob Carlisle

  30. Shelia, she is so precious - and the two of you are so beautiful together. Isn't it fun being a grandmother? Our new little bunch of pinkness would have such fun playing for your little darling sometime when they are a bit older - they are so close in age. Even if they didn't have fun, you and I would have a bundle of fun!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  50. Shelia, I'm late but just have to say what a precious post this is. Your new pink delight is oh so cute. Love the opening line of your post. Thanks for sharing these darling photos. I'm envious!

  51. Oh such sweet pinkness! Did you ever imagine what Grandmother love would be like -- only to find out it's a million times better! Must be close to finding out what heaven's like in comparison to what we imagine. Soon she'll be playing with your daughter's ponys and having pretend birthday parties -- glad you didn't sell them in the yard sale!

    Sheila, I was born and grew up in Huntsville, AL, where are you from in AL?
