a special pin to make it
her own.
In a couple of years it

BIG contribution.
As you can see she
loves herself almost
as much as I love her.
sigh...I have 
It's been just

I am so looking forward to having conversations {in some form of the English language} with my granddaughter, Diana. Reading about you and Sweetcheeks really makes me look forward to it. She chatters on and on, especially at night, and if we could understand what she was saying, I'm sure it would be quite interesting.

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

I am so glad you are a good mother and can sacrifice your time to watch Sweet Cheeks. ha

I am sure you 2 will have a ball!

What a beautiful invitation. I'll have to remember that for Josie's future first communion. Have a lovely celebration. Sounds like you have had a fun weekend already.

I'll bet Ria is so excited about today. She sure has grown so much since I first started watching her on here. Best wishes to her today.
You sure had the tough job this week. Grab the shovel, its getting deep in here!

Susie said...

Debby said...

Lynne said...

Such a blessed and beautiful day for Ria and all who attend the ceremony and celebration!
Both images are precious.

Maureen Wyatt said...

I know how difficult it has been for you minding Sweet Cheeks. That is how I entertain one of my granddaughters, the one I call Lady Gaga. A stool in front of an elaborate mirror and she's good to go for an hour! ~ Maureen

Lucille said...

Enjoy it, Diana. They grow up so fast and then we're just left with the memories. Is it enough! Well, it has to be, I suppose. They go on and live their own life, as they should, of course!

Sunny Simple Life said...

Have a wonderful celebration with your family. Sweet memories.

Blessings to Ria!
And have fun with Sweet Cheeks. I think you got the best job of all.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Diana: I love the picture on the invitation. How nice each girl just changes a piece of jewelry and makes it her own. Picture of all three together will make it very special. Have to do some fancy trick photography thing to make that happen!! Happy Sunday..Judy

Blessings to Ria. The dress and the veil are beautiful. I am not Catholic either but it is always wonderful to see people have a deep faith. It looks to be a wonderful celebration. How lovely the children were able to witness the baptism.
I have been scrolling down and loved your post with the monkey sheets and the Olive Garden visit. I loved All your posts!
They just closed our big Barnes & Noble and put in a furniture store. There are other B&N's nearby so all is not lost.
Love to you all. XO
