Enjoying Grandmotherhood

Hello, Dear Ones!
I just had to share some snaps of our little Carter.
If you are fortunate to have your grans near you - rejoice!
What a blessing it must be to watch these little loves grow in person.
Living so far from Carter, I know how blessed you are.

This is the first snap I got of Carter holding her mother's little stuffed dog from over 25 years ago.

This was just a fun day playing around town with our girls.

You can see here, Mr. Precious and I are in grandbaby heaven.

I love these snaps of Carter and her Grand dad. 
Now since we haven't seen her in person in over 7 months (we do Skype) 
we weren't sure how she would take to us.
I prayed and prayed she would know us ~ and she did! :)

I think my daughter looks like her Daddy and of course little Carter looks like me.
Agree with me...please! :)

Fun on the slide.

Snapping with Grandma! :) You know I love this stuff.

Running with Grand dad ~ it helps to hold your tiny little tongue just right!

After all of the play, a stop for a drink.

This is Carter's camera face! :)
She is one animated little girl...can you tell?

One more little camera face at the close of the day, while getting all squeaky clean.
I love this little love bug!

Mr. Precious and I were just so happy!

Can you tell?
Now I'll just have to have a few more posts about our little Carter and our trip a little later on.

Man, I've missed y'all!

I'm joining At The Picket Fence for Inspiration Friday


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


Cheek To Cheek

Heaven
I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
The happiness I seek
When we're out together
Dancing cheek to cheek

Heaven

I'm in heaven
And the cares
That hung around me
Through the week
Seem to vanish
Like a gamblers
Lucky streak
When we're out together
Dancing cheek to cheek

Oh

I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me
Half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh
I love to go out fishing
In a river, or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half
As much as dancing
Cheek to cheek

Dance with me

I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through to

Heaven

I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
That happiness I seek
When we're out together
Swinging cheek to cheek

Come on and dance with me

I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through
Right up to Heaven

I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
That happiness I seek
When we're out
Together dancing
Out together dancing
Out together dancing
Cheek to cheek
~ sung by Frank Sinatra

  3. I agree that Carter does look like you! She is just adorable. And I know all about being away from our grandkids too with ours on the other side of the country. Your pics are just great and it looks like Carter had fun getting to know you both in person. Blessings, Pamela

  15. Oh Shelia, Shelia, Shelia, I can't tell you how much I loved seeing every single photo of your beautiful family and precious Carter but the picture of her running with her grandpa actually made me laugh out loud. She's just too stinkin' cute for her own good. And yes, she is definitely the spittin' image of you!

  19. Carter is MORE than beautiful Miss Shelia. My Miss K is going to be ten...can't believe it. TEN! I don't know where the last decade of my life went.

    You and your hubby (and your daughter) are so lovely. LOVED seeing the pics.

    Blessings~xoRebecca

  20. Shelia, I know exactly how you feel. Our grands live 12 hours away. It is very hard to be sure if they remember you well at your Carter's age. Believe me if you chat and play over the distance...she will always know you. Might be shy at first, but the love is there! Your girls are darling! Glad you had a great trip, Helen

  21. She is such a cutie Sheila! And yes, I think she resembles you.
    I love all the darling pics!
    I know what it's like to have one close and one far away.
    I miss seeing little Calista grow up like I have Addison.
    But we all do the best we can and skype sure helps.
    Hugs friend,
    Cindy

  25. Yes, I agree. I was going to say that in the last note to you. Your daughter is your husband, and Carter is YOU. And I have tears in my eyes looking at all of these shots. SO sweet. I'm so glad you had that trip together. It's something Carter will always remember, but even more so, it's something for you to tuck in your heart.

    I love you...

    XO,

    Sheila
