May 16th & 17th

Molly was dedicated at our church this last Sunday. It was a special day. She was dedicated along with the adorable Amelia and Wes, children of friends of ours. I remember Sean being dedicated and how emotional it was - this did not change one bit. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of the actual dedication (if anyone who attended did, I would love any you might have). I did get a couple from that morning.

Molly Elizabeth:
Molly - a form a Mary. Both our mother's names are Mary, and Ryan's Great-grandmothers name was Molly.
Elizabeth - meaning "consecrated to God". Many women in my family have this as a middle name, myself included. It is also the first name of my Grandmother, Molly's Great-grandmother who turned 90 years old the same day our Molly was dedicated.

Molly, Great-grandma (Elizabeth), and I
Today is May 17th - Norway's Independence Day. There is a small parade in town that my brother, my dad, and I took the kids to. Sean had a blast sitting with the big kids, and seeing all the drums.
Sean had his first lollipop about 2 weeks ago and it was hilarious watching him try to eat it. Today at the parade a lollipop landed at his feet and he was transfixed . . . he just kept staring. What an awesome boy!
Hope you had a great day!

We miss you guys. I think we all need to get together. A big Kyler & Green gathering. We are going to Colorado this summer. Would be amazing if you all could come out. I think Lola and Molly would be great friends. :) Love you guys!
