Shopping With Grammy

On Friday my granddaughter came over to spend the weekend.

  So, on Saturday,  her friend came over  and off we went for a trip to the mall.

After raising five sons, all this “girly fun” has become a new tradition around my house these days.

We were so surprised to see the LSU Tigers ladies volleyball team at the mall.  Oh my, the girls were thrilled to get everyone’s signature on their poster.  Great start to our day.

Then we were off to do their favorite thing - trying on clothes.  But first a pit stop in the make up department.  Girls do have to have look just right for a big fashion show, right?

  Look Grammy, a perfume named after me!

Now…the real fun begins.  Time to try on a bunch of really pretty dresses. The dressing area was transformed to a runway.

And another… Do you like this one Grammy?  Blue is my favorite color.

Or do you like this pink one better?

Choices…choices! Life has so many choices!

And after the show, one more quick shot with the mannequins, while checking to see what texts may have came in!

Then it was back out doors to enjoy the beautiful fall afternoon!

Know that I'm still here praying for your family!
2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.

Spending the day with the girls - you are a lucky grammy. I miss mine - they live in Chicago - so far away. My eldest writes me (snail mail!) almost every week. That is great fun for me.

Amen, sister! "I'm a Grandma, Life is good!" What a fun and LOVE-FILLED post. Isn't God good to bless you with this sweet little estrogen carrier!? I had six grandsons before I got my first granddaughter. Now I have two under two. You can be sure I'm going to follow your lead and do lots of great girly things when the time comes! What a great post!

Oh, and by the way...I love your mug and processing! Nice work! ( "

This is such a fun idea, Susan. LOVE everything about it.

Pam said...

Your granddaughters are so cute. I would love to have girls to go shopping with. It's just not the same trying clothes on a boy (that would rather be anywhere else in the world than trying on clothes).

Carmen said...

Oh my, how much fun!! I loved the way you documented everything!! Adorable shots!!!

Blessings!

What a wonderful lead to your textured photo. Such gorgeous girls, so full of life and fun. You captured their abundant personalities so well. Then ended softly with your grammy mug....

Such a fabulous post, I bet your Granddaughter and her friend had the best time. I loved your runway show and the photos were so lovely that I forgot to notice the textures. Your textures are beautiful. You are a master storyteller and fun event planner!

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
