Pretty in PInk

Beverly at How Sweet the Sounds hosts a pink Saturday. I think she about fell over in her chair when I called her to tell her I'd be doing it this week. I haven't done a pink Saturday post in about a year. I'd run out of PINK! Please be sure to visit Beverly and see who else has something pink to share this week.

There's a new girl coming to join our family!

Last Sunday my daughter hosted a baby shower for her cousin (my niece). I helped her set up and prepared some of the food for the party. Tonja, my niece is due to have a baby girl this month. She and her husband had just about nothing to prepare for their baby. She was off to a good start after her shower.

I knit a little pink sweater and hat for the baby.

Here's a close up!

Tonja and Stan have chosen the name Christina for the baby. Tonja's sister gave her a card and we aren't sure what she was thinking when she wrote Tonja and Christmas on the card. That was a good laugh at the party!



I'm sure feeling old now that my daughter and niece have children!!! I remember both of them as babies. As a matter of fact on of my friends was Tonja's kindergarten teacher and for Christmas on year she framed a painting my nice had made. I should ask her if she would like it to hang in her daughter's room!

take care,
Dawn

babies are such a blessing and your niece is really blessed. What fun you guys must have had in that part for the little girl to come :-)

So did you ask her sister why put Christmas in the envelope? :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Beverly said...

A new baby - and a girl! How wonderful. And, just think how lucky this baby is to have an Aunt Dawn. The sweater set is so pretty and sweet.

Happy Pink Saturday and Fourth of July, Dawn. I'm still getting over the shock. ;-)

I had to laugh at the Christmas on the envelope. I too wonder what she was thinking. Congrats to your niece on her soon to come little one. I hope you post a picture of the new little baby when she makes her arrival. The sweater and hat you made is so cute! So special of you to make them.

I forgot right off hand if you have visited my craft blog before. Come and see the placemats I made for the silent auction at our church. I was at the fabric store yesterday hoping to get the same fabrics to make another set. Nope, no longer there. Darn! Perhaps I will make a set in Christmas fabrics.

Happy Pink Saturday Fourth to you.

LOVE those little shoes, and well done with the knitting (I bet it's too hot to be doing knitting, so that's real dedication, lol).

Hi Dawn - oh a baby girl - there is nothing better than all that sweet pink at the baby shower! I love the little sweater set you made - I still have the ones made for my children when they were little in the cedar chest. I haven't been around much - but, I'm glad I caught up with you! Did I tell you that I taught Kindergarten this year - wow - did it ever wear me out! Don't you just looooove SUMMER break!
