Pink Saturday - Ara's Birthday

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presenting for your Pleasure.

My granddaughter turned fifteen last Saturday. I blogged about it on Monday, but saved some Pink to share with you today. Shirley, the dachshund who lives at my daughter's house decided to dress for the party. See her pretty Pink dress?

There's a nice Pink present waiting to be opened.

Every girl gets organized with  Pink boxes.

Shirley is testing the Pink container to see if it's "dog-worthy."

My son-in-law, birthday girl, and our darling daughter, in a Pink shirt.

See you in two days for Blue Monday!

She's the birthday girl with the new red gadget! I forgot what it's called :-)

I think Shirley looks cute in her pink dress. Maybe she thought it was her birthday :-)

That's a good-looking family group! And, of course, Shirley is a cutie, too. But it looks like she wants that box for her very own!

It looks like it was a fun party and that your grandaughter liked her gifts!! Shirley is precious in her dress. I love to dress my dogs too, but it is usually only when it is cold!!

I may join BM this week as I will be up at my blue house in Michigan in another few hours!!

Hi Sally, I am upstairs feigning a nap so i could check my post. I miss my blogging friends so much. sigh.

Your grand daughter is so pretty and I can see she had a wonderful birthday. The dog cracked me up in his pink sweater.

She looks very happy to have her new pink boxes to get organized with! But, she may have to bargain with Shirley to use them!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I'm glad you visited my blog today because I wanted to let you know that I will be participating again on Monday in Blue Monday. It isn't totally a blue post but I am giving away the Blue and White Graniteware i posted about last week and I thought that blue Monday bloggers would want a chance at that. I hope that this is okay...
