Helloooo, Dear Ones! I've missed you so much. Did you figure out I was away? Yep, we took a little trip to Alaska...

Had a marvelous time and I'll share a little of that with you a little later on.

But before we sailed...

Grandma time!

We got to be with our little darling grand baby girl - Carter! She was so happy to see her Grandma - just look at that little face! I love this stuff!

We just ate her up with a spoon for a couple of days, then we sailed away. But guess what?

This little angel and our daughter are coming to Texas tomorrow to stay a week with us! We're so very excited! So bear with me because you know I'll be spending my time with my two gals.

Now I want to thank all of you who have come to see me and for your comments. I am going to read every one! I'll be popping in and out through this week and will start back to regular blogging next week. I love you and feel like I've been away from you for ever. You really have become my family!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

When I Fall In Love

When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love

In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many
Moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart
I give it completely
Or I'll never give my heart

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you
~ sung by Nat King Cole


  1. Oh, I can't wait to hear all about your trip to Alaska. That's on our to-do list, probably after my sweetheart retires in a couple of years. Looking forward to seeing photos and hearing about your adventures.

    Carter is a beautiful little girl. Have fun with your two girls. Don't worry about us - we'll be waiting here to hear all about it and see more pictures of your precious little one.

  2. Shelia, she is a doll! I know you will love spending a week with her! I'll bet that was a great trip to Alaska.....that's one way to beat the heat! Welcome home!Linda

  3. She's a little doll face, sugar!!

    What is it with Alaska; everyone is going there this year, chick?


  4. I was wondering when baby Carter would make an appearance and, goodness gracious, here she is and cuter than ever! I am SO jealous. Can't wait to be a grandma!! Also can't wait to hear more about your travels in Alaska. I'm thinking food first, then scenery. Enjoy your girls!!


  5. Welcome home....enjoy your family!!

  6. Hi Sheila
    I can't wait to hear all about your trip. I didn't think it was possible for Carter to look any cuter but she does. She is so beautiful and those big blue eyes are adorable.
    Missed you.

  7. Sheila, I did notice you were missing around here. I loved the Alaskan cruise we took. It really is my favorite cruise and I would love to go again some day. Your little Carter is just adorable. I just want to squeeze her. I know you are so excited to get to spend a week with her. Have fun and hug her bunches.

  8. (I have always l loved this song!)
    And I did miss you...I wondered why you didn't see my "Shelia Picture"...this little Carter is a beauty, I love her nose! Love the pic of the two of you holding her.
    Can't wait to hear and see about this trip. I have a sis that lives there and I so need to g see her! :D

  9. Did you say you went to Alaska? I was too busty drooling over that precious baby to hear correctly;)!

    Oh my goodness! How darling is that baby! I would eat her up with a spoon too! You are sooooo lucky!
    Just beautiful!


  10. Hi Sheila
    I have taken that Alaska cruise trip 3 times. I love it. I can't wait to see your pictures and hear all about it. Your little grand baby is so precious! What a cutie!
    Hugs, Ann

  11. Hi Sheila,
    I figured you were off doing something fun! Carter is adorable and I bet you will have soo much fun with her! Oh, I can't wait to be a Grandma, looks like fun!

  12. I can't believe how much that little cutie has grown...enjoy your time with your darling daughter and beautiful granddaughter...we'll be here...

  13. Just too cute Pickle...I do you were with her girl...How fun to have them with you for a'll wear those sweet cheeks out just kissing them Pickle..Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  14. First: your grandbaby is TOOOO cute! Look at those eyes! And they are coming to see you. How special!

    Second: we ALMOST booked that SAME ship to Alaska. In late August, we're going to fly into Anchorage and rent a car and drive around. Denali for sure and all points inbetween.
    How was the cruise? Just curious if we think we'd like to do one.

    Great post and welcome home!

  15. Carter is a doll!! And I can't wait to hear about your trip to Alaska! It sounds like a wonderful adventure.

  16. Carter is growing so fast! She is so cute, Shelia! Love her big blue eyes.

    I can't wait to hear about your Alaska cruise and see all the photos.

  17. Glad you're back, Shelia! I knew where you were. A little birdie told me.

    I've been MIA (first with computer problems and then spotty blogging with my MIL and family here), but I saw your name pop up and wanted to say, "Welcome Home"!

    You know that Carter is adorable. Oh, she is so cute! And I love her sweet smile. She reminds me of someone I know. :-)

    Can't wait to hear about the trip, and I'm excited for you that you are going to be able to play with your girls.


    Sheila :-)

  18. She is just beautiful! She looks like a doll!

  21. Hi Shelia,
    I'm so glad that you are home and had a great trip. Can't wait to hear more about it.

    But, for now just enjoy being Grandma and Mom. You are going to be loving every minute.
    She's a little doll.


  22. Looking forward to your trip pictures. Now that baby is one beautiful little girl -- yes ma'am she is! Now I have four grandgirls myself so I'm a self proclaimed expert at spotting beautiful little girls -- and yes-sir-ree -- she a beauty!

  23. Sooooo glad to hear that you've been out playing! Looking forward to hearing all about it, enjoy your company and can't wait to see the pics of that little diva:@)

  24. Aw, what a precious little doll! And what a lucky gal you are to have her. I'd like to move to Alaska for the summer! ha! I'll bet you had a great trip.

  25. She's just cutey, cute-cute. I can see why you need time to cuddle and spoil her. What a little doll! I have posted some recent pics of my little grand-daughter, Riley on some of my earlier posts. She is growing so fast, too. You have a fun time and can't wait to see Alaska. Hugs, Deb =^..^=x5

  26. Sheila-You have been missed but OH MY GOODNESS...Carter is gorgeous. I can't believe she is this big. It seem like yesterday you whispered that she was on the way :) I have always wanted to take an Alaskan cruise and can't wait to hear about yours. Enjoy your visit with your precious ones and we'll be here waiting breathlessly for pictures and stories!

  27. Little Carter is getting prettier everyday. Such pretty blue eyes and beautiful smile! I know you had a lot of fun on the cruise, Shelia. I just got back myself from California today but not for a fun trip but sad, a funeral....Christine

  28. Oh Sheila! That little Carter is just beautiful! What a joy!

    can't wait to hear about your trip to Alaska, but in the meantime...

    enjoy those girls!

    Isn't Carter adorable! She is so sweet and look at those big blue eyes. Is it not amazing how quickly they grow? You and Mr. Precious must have been in heaven visiting her. I'm so happy you got to visit with her AND she is coming to visit you.

    Enjoy....have fun...

    I also know you had a great time in Alaska. We loved Alaska and would love to return for another cruise. Since we were gone too, I didn't realize you were cruising...while we were in the mountains with hot humid weather.sigh! We did have a grand time with family.

    Have a wonderful week and take lots of pics to share. Kiss and hug baby Carter for me. Smile!
