"Pinkalicious" for Pink Saturday


I'll make this short and sweet! Mary Catherine (now is that a "pinkalicious" name or what?!!!) wanted to participate in this week's Pink Saturday, so...here is my four-year old's contribution:



Yup...there really is a book out there for all those little fun-lovin', pink-wearin', prima donas! Pinkalicious is an adorable story about a little girl who eats soooo many pink cupcakes that she turns...you guessed it, pink! The antidote...a healthy dose of self-discipline and to eat more greens (as in spinach, brussel sprouts, and broccoli). YUCK! :)

If you have any little ones that you think might be a Pinkalicious fan you can learn more here! Author Elizabeth Kahn's website provides an overview of the book along with pink links, party ideas and suggestions for teachers and parents.

Happy Pink Saturday!


Our FAVORITE bedtime story!


Little brother was feeling left out and wanted his picture taken too!


Ahhhh...now that's better! My other "pinkalicious" kiddo! (Daddy HATES the fact that he has a pink bink! (i.e. pacifier))

For more "pinkalicious" posts, please visit our lovely hostess, Beverly, over at How Sweet the Sound!

Blessings to you this Holy Saturday,
Valerie

  9. My DH thought my first born, a daughter, should be dressed in sex non-specific clothes. When she arrived early and I pleaded with him to buy me something pink, he came home with green, blue and yellow...when my SON was born on the other hand, my son had to wear boy clothes. Don't worry though, my sister brought me pink the first time she visited when my daughter was just days old AND once I was out and about, I bought all the pink I could stand. I knocked that foolish idea right out of my DH's head...perhaps that is why he changed his tune for the second one.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  16. Hello Valerie!!! It's so wonderful to meet you--a fellow Missourian, now a Kansan--still close by!! I loved your daughter's book--infact, I eyeballed that one recently at a local bookstore. Now that I have Mary C's nod of approval, I will have to purchase that for my 3yr old gr girl! Tell that hubby of yours that only a manly boy will enjoy his pink bink!!! :)

    I read with interest all of the places WE have in common!!! I love Weston,too!! I also saw your list of children's authors. I just recently fell in love with Rob Scotton (Russell the Sheep book for one). I am taking a little class at a local comm. college and the teacher brought it in to share---I promptly ordered it! I think I bought it more for ME than for my gr. girl, BUT I will read it to her!! I hope she likes it, too!

    I look forward to visiting you often!!!

    Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Easter!!

  17. You are lucky your daughter likes pink. I have 6 girls and 5 of them hate the color. The other one is limited as to what she does like. I seam to have the blue kiddos. Any form of a blue and we are all happy. Your children are so adorable.
    God Bless and have a wonderful Easter.

  21. Valerie, I came back to tell you that the foiled eggs are not easy. Put more than 2 dots of glue on the egg kind of in different places. Then dab it with your fingers and kind of spread it around but not all together. The foil needs to be wrapped around the egg with the color on the OUTSIDE. We learned to sort of rub the foil to get the color on the egg. Not easy, and we are adults. Wishing you luck. Jeanne

    PS it all washes off very easy with just water. After they are foiled let them dry. It doesn't take long.

  32. Oh Val....those are precious times!
    I LOVE childrens books and still buy them even though the kids are grown. My favorite author is Babette Cole and anything illustrated by Trina Schart-Hyman.
    I actually got to meet her in L.A. when I lived in Ca, and it was like meeting the Queen of England to me. I love the book you have pictured over on the side called "No David!" Do you think your kids would loan it to me? He he he. Kids books are the best!

    Have a Joyous Easter with your precious family!

    Hugs, Your Neighbor Nancy :)
