Time to decorate

We had fun decorating for Lily's first Christmas with us. It was a little tough keeping her out of the tree, but it was still fun. If we can keep her from eating the ornaments it will be a miracle.

Happy 1st Birthday Lily

Happy Birthday Lily!!!! This morning Lily's picture appeared on a local news program in a segment called Wonderful 1's, so cute. We started the morning out with breakfast and mom singing Happy Birthday about 10 times to her, she just starred and by the 5th time she was shaking her head NO to me, not sure what that was about. LOL We took cupcakes to Aunt Shelly's house, she watches Lily during the day, to share with the other kids. We are planning on eating Chinese tonight and taking Miss Lily to Toys R Us for some birthday gifts. We are having the family party tomorrow with around 40 some people there!! What a wonderful celebration it will be even if it get's a little crazy.
My heart aches for her birthmother today and the loss she must be feeling, my prayer for her would be that some small voice is telling her that it's ok, her daughter is being well taken care of and is LOVED soooo much.
Will be posting pictures of her big day.

Rosebud Dedication at Church

Sunday October 28th was a very special day, we had Lily dedicated at church. This is where we as the family vow to raise her with Christian values and also includes the congregation who also makes this promise to help guide her to Love the Lord as she grows. Both boys who have been such a huge part of her life also went forward with this vow and I cannot tell you how much it meant. With that being said Lily now how a new "cheesy" smile and decided to show the congregation. This is one part of her amazing personality that we love so much, she has been such a blessing to our lives.
