dannie marie !!!!!!

4 days.......until Dannie/Danielle Marie gets married!!! Wow!!! I so remember long talks, wonderings, teasings of the big "WHO!" And now its here.....almost!! God has provided a fine young man named Aaron! Lord willin' Dannie, we will see you tomorrow night.....late!

Ironing, and more ironing, cleaning, packing, going to town a zillion times and seems like spending a zillion dollars on items we think we need for this trip! But hopefully its all coming together and I won't forget any thing toooo needful! Upon arrival to Illinois we will be escorted to a RV park where a garganueous bus will be our sleeping quarters! Fun! (i think) Should be interesting getting settled after a midnight arrival :) Looking at the weather, it is going to be perfect.....highs in the upper 80's and lows in the upper 40-50's......I am taking a jacket for sure!!!!!!! Friday, Bethany and Danielle and all the bridesmaids have a big day of beautification, pedicures and such and then Friday eve. I think some decorating for the wedding. Saturday at 4 pm the rehearsal and dinner and Sunday at 2pm.......marriage!!!!!!! Wahooooo's like major!!! Now all the in between times of the above schedule we will have to fill in with activities for the little people, maybe some swimming at Aaron's house and seeing what else we can get into! And there is suppose to be lots of volleyball happening!

Let me say, our family is thankful for Billy! He is in charge of our farm, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, cows, and (mice) !!! He will be too busy to be bored! This would not be a smooth trip if it were not for his generosity of serving our family! So, thank you, Billy!

This time 23 years ago, I had bout 13 hours and two little fellas would be birthed and we would be starting an incredible journey of being blessed with children! More tomorrow!

The guys will be getting here a bit later, Anna has fixed dinner, got my hair trimmed a tiny bit, some final packing and Lord willing tomorrow we are off! Pray for us if you think of it, I know there are so many that we all pray for so a trip is insignificant to the many that are hurting but the scriptures say "safety is of the Lord," so I will ask Him to be round about us!

I (we) AM SO EXCITED FOR DANNIE!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! I'm so thankful that the Lord has blessed her with a husband to be! I get goosebumps thinking about how amazing it is when God brings two people together! IT IS GOOD.
It'll be fun to see Bethany all dressed up as a bridesmaid too! Hehe!
Looking forward to, Lord willing, seeing you sometime this weekend!
