Hello Daylily Friends,
My good friend, Lori Hankinson, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, sent me an e-mail this past week and requested an "update" on Little Lily Rae. I have to tell everyone that Little Lily Rae is doing so, so well. She now knows so many words, and one word that she is in the process of mastering is "butterfly." When I visited the Club in Grand Rapids Lori gave me a number of gifts for Lily Rae, and several of the gifts showed butterflies. Then this past week I pointed to a butterfly outside, and I hope that Lily Rae saw it, but I'm not sure that she did. Anyway, her Grandmother, Diana Rae, purchased a "butterfly rug" which we now have at the entrance to the family room in our house. This morning when Lily Rae came in she went straight to the rug, and announced: "B - fly." Oh it was so much fun! Also, Grandmother Diana Rae took a picture of Mother Kelley Rae, posing with daughter Lily Rae, in front of the "Pink Sparkles" tree that Jeff and Karen Pansing brought for Lily Rae. The blooms on the tree and Lily Rae's smile both bring a smile to my face. Thanks Diana for the great picture. Oh, I should mention that the clothes that Lily Rae is wearing I purchased for her. Oh she looks so nice in her spring time pink and white outfit. Lily Rae also has new spring clothes coming that her Dad purchased and I hope to get a chance to show some of these during the summer.
More news soon!
