THIS IS LILY MAE'S ROOM... I did not see them on the blog anymore and Jeff is gone I know that I have done something wrong to lose them on the blog so here goes, it is 1:06am and I have to be up by4:30 I do not think I am going to sleep, oh well...who needs it anyhow!!! cause we are getting a little girl!!!!

We are on our way we leave at 10:38 am Wednesday, We will recieve her next Monday the 13th We can't wait to hold her, what a sweet face, God Love her and of course to
God Be The Glory!!!

Here is our precious kitchen, it will be fun to cook with Lily Mae!
I can not wait to take her out in her snow suit and let her run and play!!

Below is where my sewing machine usually sits, )But we had just had company so it was all cleaned up!) so that is where Lily Mae will learn to sew, I used to make little doll clothes and hopefully she will too!

And of course the bread our biggest weakness, but oh how good it is, It will be so fun to have Lily Mae sit in her highchair and watch me bake bread, then eventually teach her the tricks of the trade! I can not wait to watch her take her first bite of warm bread freshly grinned from home!

Thankgiving Day at the Danglers (we arrive home the day before Thanksgiving)

We collect old postcards and place them on the plates and we each will read the one we recieve this is an awesome idea, and it is very entertaining to see how people spoke sometimes one hundred years ago.

This is our kitchen where Lily Mae and the family will have our meals, I still need to get her cushions made for her highchair, never enough time! We can not wait to have Lily at the table!

See the apron, Lily will get one soon I LOVE to wear my apron I wear one everyday! I can not imagine a day with out it. The best thing to an apron your clothes stay dry during dishes and everything you pick up goes right in the pocket, so if I ever get on Lets Make a Deal... I can rest asure you that I WOULD WIN!!

This is our Living Room, we love the bay window!

Here is the other end of the living room, we love to build a fire in the winter, especially when it is snowing and sit around and read story, We can not wait to have Lily Mae be apart of our little tradions. We LOVE the Country life!!

These are the most beautiful dresses! Lily Mae's Big Brother, Bradley sent them from Kuwait! When he told me he was sending her Indian dresses (2) I thought what is she going to do with Indian dresses (I was thinking American Indian) Sometimes I can be clueless!! Bradley these will be so fun to put on Lily Mae! Thank You darling. Might I add that boy can shop! With Lily Mae wearing these dresses people are going to think she is royalty, then they will see her country bumkin momma and realize they IS from Corydon, IN. population 85!
Now this is Lily Mae's BIG (GI JOE) brother. ( Lily talking) Well here goes my mom openingly bragging about Bradley...Again, she loves her children so much and I can not wait to be apart of that. This is Bradley and we are so proud of him, he truely is a soldier and a handsome one at that, and to think he has NEVER had a girlfriend (not that he doesn't like girls) but he is waiting for God to put before him the young lady he is to marry, and chooses to wait till the day he gets married to have his first kiss... HE IS SO AWESOME! Bradley we love you dearly! The dresses you sent for Lily Mae are to die for, I will be posting them. Wish you were here. We will actually be real close to you when we go to China, I will see If I can not call George and catch a ride on Air Force One to Iraq, and come and visit... Now you know I would if there was even a remote chance I could! Love ya babe, mommadonna
Thank you all so very much for Lily Mae's shower It was so beautiful, and the weather, well we couldn't ask for a more perfect day weather wise.

Oh my goodness!!!! The gifts kept coming and coming, & coming. I really enjoyed opening all these wonderful gifts, I will have a blast dressing Lily Mae in all her new outfits!

Well here we are, but not all of us, Lily we will be there soon!! Bradley so sorry you are not here with us, We are so grateful for you serving our country and you are to be honored! I do have to say a huge part of my heart is in Iraq... You are so missed! I missed laughing uncontrolble with you, especially when we turned on the hot water while Andrew was in the shower and he started yelling...HEY TURN THE WATER OFF, I am cracking up right now. I miss ya babe, mommadonna loves ya!

Hey girl, my dear friend for? Well forever really... thank you for being my friend I love ya bunches! Hey do you like my glasses, I mean the style ahhahaha. Don't ever forget the Thornton beam dance and all the great times together, life has been a blast with you! Lily will have a blast with her Aunt Sandra Dee! I am so glad that the Sunkist soda is in the picture however the payday candy bar is not, but then again it is not morning time either!

Amy!!! Thank you for having the party at the Willow, Your a doll!!!
I just can not believe how beautiful her room has turned out, I absolutely love the color
choices, Sandy made NOT that I made.
Lily's Aunt Kathy is going to make her curtains we are so excited about getting them hung up when we return. In order to get my Aunt Kathy to make them I had to name Lily Mae after her, at least that's what I told Kathy, hopefully she will never know the difference...
Kathleen Bernadette & Lily Mae do you all see the correlations? Shshshshsh hopefully she wont notice ahahhaha

Thanks to my uncle Bobby I was able to have such Beautiful furniture for Lily Mae, what a terrific Blessing. I could not have asked for prettier furniture!!

Checkout her bedding!!!! It is just perfect for her!! Thank you Aunt Sandy for the crib and the bedding, It is absolutely PERFECT!!! I must say that lavendar is such the color for her I love pink but for some reason everything I am choosing is turning to lavendar and green.
JUST SO PEACEFUL LOOKING!! I will say too that I put a egg grate on her bed and with the soft sheets I may never get her out of bed. But she deserves an awesome bed, no telling what she has been sleeping in for the last year, but all of that is just about to change. And I must give credit where credit is do!!!! PRAISES TO GOD AND MAY GOD BE THE GLORY!!!

Hey, this is my dad & mom!!!They R coming to get me!!! God has blessed me(Lily Mae) so much!! I have a new home, BIG brothers, (lil' sad, I won't be able to see Bradley till Feb.) he is in Iraq protecting our freedom, which means I have a brother who is to be honored and that makes me proud to have him as my brother!!!
