(maggie excitedly looking at the artwork
princess lauren created for her:)


(lauren's amazing creation!!!)

i mentioned that i too received a "wonderful surprise" from princess lauren:D i did, indeed, and was very excited as well. this is what the sweet and beautiful princess created and sent to me...




(a beach themed sun catcher:)

how in the world did princess lauren... all the way over in england know that my most favorite place to be is... THE BEACH???

princess lauren, i love, love, love my sun catcher. and, when i catch enough sun, i'm going to send it to you. so, some rainy day, when the sun comes out and you see a rainbow, know that you've received sunshine from me in kentucky:D along with that sunshine, stop and feel the warmth. that will be the warmth of my love sent to you, your mummy, and prince daniel!!!

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

How sweet! It is so fun getting "real" mail. Ever since computers I think I have recieved actual mail from actual people maybe 20 times at most and those were mostly Birthday cards.

Oh, that nakes it look like I don't appreciate B Day cards. I do. I really do. I just miss letters and nothing is more fun than recieving a surprise package.

Well Princess Lauren really outdid herself on those presents! I love the suncatcher she made.

I don't have the sound on often, but since you mentioned your voice I of course turned it on. Whenever I hear my own voice being played back at me I always think "Is that me?". I must say I expected a BAHAHAHAHAHA from you in the background ;) !!!

Love,
Tania

That is so nice of her. Above and beyond. I like Maggie. I love that name too.

Great that she did the beach thing with the fish. Cute.

Have a great day Dani dear.

Hi there Dani ~ so glad that Laurens parcel made it to you in one piece!! After she received the bookmark from you ~ she just wanted so much to send you something that she had made. She painted the suncatcher all herself ~ all I did was help her tie the shapes on!! Maggie is just so cute and I am glad that she liked Laurens creation (especially since I was guilty of recycling the other one ha ha !!!). It was so great to hear your voice ~ I have seen you in photos ~ but never heard your voice ~ so that was great!! I know that there will be one very very happy and excited girl tomorrow morning when I show her this!!
love and hugs to you (and Maggie) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Too cute! Isn't so fun to receive packages? I'm like a kid when I get one..

You know that's your real voice hahahaha! You can't hide it from us! :-)

Hannah said...

:D
I majorly dig Maggie's picture, it's sweet. I was wondering what it was when I walked in and saw it on the mantle.

Tanya said...

WOW!!!! what a beautiful suncatcher Princess Lauren made D!!! & her creation for Maggie is just so sweet! D. I loved the little video, too cute.... so good to hear your voice!
Hope you are having a lovely night! Have a fantastic Friday :)

dani said...

it is very fun receiving packages, suz:) i do most of my shopping online (Christmas, katherine's clothes, birthdays, etc...). i love opening the packages even when i already know what's inside. but, it's twice the fun when it's a surprise. and, the princess lauren really surprised and delighted me, today:D
love,
dani

dani said...

tania, i can get maggie really excited talking baby-talk to her. she's so funny; like in the clip, she kicks her back feet like a little bull-calf.
i didn't want to laugh at her because then she starts barking. one day i will post a blog verbally. then you can hear how i really sound. i can turn on and off my kentucky drawl; but, i will be sure to leave it on when i think of something to say, lol!!!
love,
dani

Kellan said...

So beautiful and cute video!

Have a good Friday, Dani! Kelaln

dani said...

it was absolutely, positively precious of the princess lauren to think of me and maggie on the lane!!! and, yes, she did, indeed, go above and beyond with coloring of my beautiful sun catcher and maggie's artwork (which is sitting on my piano for all to see:)
i hope you had a great day as well, jan dahling!!!
love,
dani

dani said...

they are lovely, aren't they, amanda!!! and, maggie pie was extremely excited to receive hers:D
love,
dani

dani said...

tabitha, it was all in one piece; and i was as delighted to receive it as maggie was!!!
the sun catcher is soooooooooooo lovely!!! tell lauren i will keep it forever, and when she becomes a famous painter i will tell people that i knew her when she was just a beauty full, little princess:D
(she did an amazing job on her painting, really!!! and tell her that i was very impressed with her writing, too:)
love,
dani

dani said...

robin, how about that voice!!! actually it is not normally quite that high pitched but with a little more of a southern drawl:b
as i told tania, when i think of something to talk about (other than reciting the gettysburg address) i'll let my voice be heard...
have a good night!!!
love,
dani

dani said...

dani said...

Tabitha said...

Dani ~ Lauren thought that Maggie was just the cutest. She was very excited when I told her that you had received the package and she stood and read every word of your post and then said "ahhhh ~ that is so lovely" ~ tee hee!!
Love and lots of hugs from Princess Lauren and daniel too XXX

Jennifer H said...

Gotta love the mail! How fun.
I meant to ask yesterday, but how's Katherine doing?

dani said...

hey, jenn:)
katherine seems to be doing well. it's definitely been a long week, though... thank you for asking.
love,
dani

Wendi said...

Packages in the mail = Delight!! :)
Love your puppy voice. :) Similar to the voice I use when talking to my little Noe boy - sometimes I have been 'just mommy' for too long and use it on Dave. He always gives me the funniest look before I realize what I've done. :)

dani said...

wendi, that is funny... i did that to john when katherine was little, too:) baby-talk is very habit forming i suppose:b
love,
dani
