I'm Creating a Family Gallery Wall!!

Ever since we got our SWEET granddaughter, Colleen, I have wanted to create a gallery wall going downstairs. As most of you know, our daughter and SIL adopted her at 17 months. She has been such a HUGE BLESSING to us all!!!!! We all love her to the moon and back and have from day 1. She is such a sweet little girl and cracks us up all the time. They adopted her from the foster care system so we, as her grandparents, think we are ALL blessed that God led them to this precious child. Here is the wall so far. This first frame holds several pictures from when she first came into our lives.
 She has always been a happy child. She has had a lot of major changes in her short life and has adapted amazingly well!!!
 Here is the beautiful family, this past Christmas.
 Her Uncle Brian (our son) came up at Thanksgiving, from Florida, to meet her and it was love at first sight for both of them.
 This one was a few weeks ago. I was just snapping pictures while she ate lunch. I wonder what she was thinking:)
 Tata (Joe) and Colleen walking home from the community pool back in May. WAY before his surgery!! He could still walk!!!
 Her parents; our daughter, Tracy and her husband, Dave.
 I added some small mirrors to the wall recently.
 Taking pictures;):)
Thanks for stopping by!!! Sharing here:


  1. What joy little Colleen has brought to your life! She is a darling! A perfect fit!

  2. How wonderful to create a gallery wall of your adorable granddaughter! Your Colleen looks like she enjoys life. Beautiful!

  3. What a fun idea! She is just adorable. I love how the styles and hair speak volumes in gallery walls that are more than a few years old. I just love it when people have them.

    1. Thanks for visiting, Jacqueline!!! She is the love of our lives!!!

  4. Pinky,
    I am so~o~o in l o v e with your Gallery Wall!!!
    I think photos should be out where we can enjoy the memories of "precious" days!!!
    I, too, am quite amazed at how well Colleen Victoria adapted. . .
    but then, she was wrapped in many loving arms of welcome!!!
    Blessings continue to abound!!!

  5. Pinky, your gallery wall is worthy of all those beautiful family photos! I'm so happy you were motivated to do this. So many times our pictures just stay on our computer. What a beautiful little girl your family has been blessed with!

  6. What an adorable granddaughter, Pinky! I loved the story and how she came into your lives....beautiful! The gallery wall is gorgeous, also. Blessings to all of you.
