All By Myself

Hello, Dear Ones!! I've missed you but now it's time to get back to blogging.

I'm going to share just a bit of the marvelous time we have just enjoyed. Dear Daughter and little Carter came for Thanksgiving while our son-in-law drove across the country with the dogs. We won't see them Christmas so we made the best of our time together.

The girls - four generations.
Notice the Most neglected dog standing behind me.
Poor poor Chloe Dawn.

We familied

We grandmothered and great grandmothered

We suited up in Texas flag gear and went for a run

We Thanksgivinged

We fell asleep at the table

We laughed

We smiled for the camera

We played Note Songs

We Santa Claused - even though one tiny little one slept

We mistreated Chloe Dawn

Now it's just Mr. Precious, the mistreated Chloe Dawn and me ~
all by ourselves.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

All By Myself

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
When I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And loves so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
~ sung by Eric Carman


  1. What wonderful pictures to remember a fun time. She is adorable - I love them at that age. They continue to be fun, but in a different way. Don't get to lonely; they'll be back. Sally

  2. So so cute Sheila!
    I about peed my pants when I saw that most neglected one inside the baby walker! hehehehe!
    And that Carter is so adorable! She is going to be quite the blondie!
    So glad you shared the fun!

  3. Sheila, I smiled, laughed and loved every second of this post-enjoy! Oh, and give that puppy a hug for me:@)

  4. Shelia,
    That grand baby is adorable! Looks like you had a wonderful time!~

  5. You have some beautiful photos to frame now and your home is so lovely.Carter is so sweet and I know just how you feel for her since we have our 1st grand-daughters close in age. They are so special. Your little dog is probably happy to have you all to herself again. Our dog would be just the same.
    Have fun getting ready for Christmas. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

  6. I so enjoyed seeing your beautiful family in these photos. Looks like you all had a terrific time together!

    Our daughter and family were with us for Thanksgiving but won't be here for Christmas as well. Your Chloe Dawn felt mistreated and our Raider barely endured our daughters new puppy, Rudy. Rudy is really the sweetest little guy, but Raider just was not happy about him being here!

    As always... so fun stopping by to visit with you!

  7. What sweet memories you have and pic's of 4 generations. Looks like you all had good time and did everything one would do on Christmas day. I adore the photos of Carter in her perfect highchair you created for her. Again, what memories you are creating and she will have photos to look back on to see all you did for her and I might add in high-creative-style.

  8. Shelia, that looks like Heaven to me. :) Glad y'all had such a wonderful time there.

  9. What a sweet grand baby! You lucky Grandma! What fun!!!!!

    Looks like a wonderful holiday!

  10. Such a fun post, Shelia. I enjoyed all these fabulous family photos!

    Poor Chloe Dawn. She definitely looks pitiful.

  11. I have missed you during your break BUT this was WORTH WAITING FOR! What great photos tonight Shelia. The four generations picture is so special. I love the one of you and Carter at piano (or nano as my great niece calls it!) The one with Grandpa of her laughing is cute as can be and oh, the one of her sleeping at the table. I often feel like taking a nap after a big meal! Thanks so much for sharing your precious family. Tell Chloe Dawn she is cute as can be and that we send a big hug. She will have all your attention at Christmas.

  12. Thank you so much for sharing your precious family photos! It looks like all of you had a ball. And that sweet little Carter can not take a bad picture...what a doll!

    I'll bet Chloe Dawn is feeling a lot better now that company is gone! ;-D


  13. Oh Sheila , I can't believe that Carter is that big already. I didn't realize how much time has passed . Lord have mercy, time is flying.
    Cherish every moment of little Carter's life .
    She looks alot like you !!She is just precious.

    Thank you for your prayers for me.Love ya !

  14. This was such a precious post Sheila. I loved the picture of the four generations..priceless! I am so happy you enjoyed every second, I can see it. I am disappointed though you neglected the the dog, I can see the sadness!

  15. Awwwwwwwwwwww...I know you really enjoyed your time together! Now...take care of Chloe Dawn!! LOL!!

  16. Oh my goodness, I just want to squeeze those precious little legs and cheeks! Carter's that is. She has sure grown since the last time I "saw" her. And it's easy to see that she isn't spoiled in the least. How nice to make the most of your time together. However, I'm feeling so sorry for neglected little Chloe Dawn!!!!

  17. Oh Shelia -- she's so precious. What a beautiful little girl she is! Loved the pictures of poor neglected Chloe Dawn in the bouncie seat. I used to just cry and cry when we had to leave Stella after a visit. I know it's hard to be far away and have to pack so much in in a short little time -- but beautiful times they are. Good to see pictures of your mama again as well.

  18. Sheila, your posts are always a day brightener. What a sweet post. So fun to see your family and all the goings on. Poor, pitiful Chloe Dawn! :)

    Your little Carter is cute as can be!!


  19. Awwww, such sweet pics of everyone! It's great to see that your mother is doing so well. Carter is a little doll and I loved seeing Chloe Dawn in the baby's walker (or whatever you call it). You all look great!

  20. Oh Shelia, The picture with your little one asleep in Grandpa's arms is precious. Can you remember the day when you could just fall asleep anywhere and wake up refreshed?

    Wonderful post.
    May you have a wonderful Holiday Season and God bless,

  21. I missed you! But I am so glad that you had such a wonderful time together! It is somewhat sad when they leave isn't it?! Carter is so cute and so is her mama. The pic where you are holding her at the so cute! ;D

  22. What fun you had! Loved seeing the photos of each of you.

  23. Hi there Shelia~ looks like such a wonderful time had by all! What a darling grandbaby you have~~and Chloe Dawn understands I am sure!! Love the generational photos! Thanks for sharing! :)

  24. What fun pictures showing what a great time you all had!! I love them. My favorite is the last one of your granddaughter sleeping. So cute! My new granddaughter arrived on Nov 13. Soon, very soon we will fly to see her and our older granddaughter. Can't wait!!

  25. Dear Shelia, you look like you had a great time. Your grand daughter is growing so big, and she looks such a happy soul :o)
    Thanks for sharing those precious moments with us, dear lady.
    Have a blessed day.

  26. What a beautiful, precious family!! Love the photos and you are very blessed.

  27. Ah, my heart is full seeing you all together. I know you enjoyed and made the most of every minute. You are all beautiful.


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
