Rainy Day

Yesterday morning we woke to rain and the kids wanted to try out thier new umbrellas. Mike snapped this picture of the three of them. Charlie and Madi were playing dress up(Charlie is Boba Fett and Madi is a ballerina princess)and Nathan is dressed for his soccer game(BTW he scored two goals!!!!) They were out their for a good while until the rain started coming down hard. Then it was hurry scurry for the house. Mei was inside of course, but was laughing at them through the window. She thinks her big brothers and sister are hilarious. One day I'll put up some video of her just laughing at them. She gets everyone laughing.

Madi's hair has finally grown out enough to put it up in pigtails. She has been diligently praying that Jesus would make her hair long again. And it looks like he has heard her sweet request.

A Dedication and a Party

Saturday was very special at the Talley house. We celebrated Mei's 1st birthday and had her dedication. We decided to do both at our house at the same time. We wanted our famly to be there for both events. Mei wore the same christening gown that Madi wore. It was a gown I had made from my wedding dress. My hope is that they will want to use it for their girls one day.

Mei did great and was a trouper. We didn't have any smiley pictures, but she still looks cute as a button.

Fun with Friends
