Before you read this post, I suggest you read these posts. Here. Here. Here. Here. But if you don't want to I'll give you a quick background. My brother plays football and his receiving coach is Scott. Scott is married to Tosha and they have two beautiful children, Taleah and Slade. You can read their blog. This is Taleah.
So last fall football started and Taleah (2 years old then, she's 3 now) would come around with her dad and my brother and the other players fell in love with her. And she fell in love with my brother. So one day, her Aunt Tavia who goes to high school with my brother says that she is going to homecoming. Taleah pipes up and says, "Well Ty is taking me to homecoming!" So from that moment forward we have all wanted to do a dance for Taleah so my brother can take her. But, at the end of August, Taleah was diagnosed with leukemia. Everyone was shocked and devastated. They found out on a Friday before a football game and the coaches told to players before they went on the field. My brother was devastated as well. And this picture comes from that day. Ty and his best friend Mikey praying for Taleah before the game.
From then on they've been trying to plan when to do the dance for Taleah but it's never been a good time. This weekend was finally a good time to do the dance! My mom helped Ty ask her. This is what they did.
I died when I saw this. So adorable. So here are the pictures that I stole from Facebook. Three other couples came with them, her Aunt Tavia and her two friends and three of Ty's friends.
The Day Date.
The Pick Up.
The After Ice Cream.
So there you have it. If you don't think I have the cutest brother in the whole world by now then you have no heart. Because seriously? This is amazing. You really should read those other posts too though. Your heart will melt even more. Needless to say, everyone went all out for this event. And Taleah, I'm sure, will remember it for the rest of her life. She's so beautiful and such a sweetheart.
Oh. PS. Her dad told her before the date that she couldn't kiss Ty. And she turned to her mom and said, "I'm going to put my lip gloss on and kiss Ty right on the lips so he'll get lip gloss on his lips." Well. He didn't get a kiss on the lips, but a kiss on the cheek is just as good. Too cute.
