Marlie is one of those girls that LOVES to play dress-up. When I had her closet open, she happened to spot a beautiful yellow Ethiopian dress I bought from Ethiopian Orphan Relief's online store. Marlie wanted to try on the dress. As soon as it was on, Seamus gasped and said, "Marlie you are soooo beautiful in that dress!" Remembering that the boys had Ethiopian shirts as well, Seamus asked to wear his Ethiopian shirt.
I already knew I'd have to take some pictures of Marlie in her Ethiopian dress. But with Seamus dressed up in his shirt, I HAD to get Haven to wear his too for our little photo shoot. While Haven had no problem wearing it two and 1/2 years ago for Marlie's baptism, apparently things have changed. Haven said, "Mama, that looks like a GIRL'S shirt!!!". It took a bit of begging on my part, but Haven finally humored me and put on his shirt.
Finally it was time for me to start the photo shoot! (and by ME, I really mean Marshall)
Here's my Ethiopian Princess in her yellow Ethiopian dress.
Marshall also got a shot of each of the boys. If there is one picture that would adequately describe Seamus' personality, it would be this one!!!
And though Haven didn't want to wear the "girly" shirt and much less want Daddy to take a picture of him in that shirt, he was still a good sport and gave us a nice smile.
If you put these two together, there's no way they can sit still. They kept jumping and dancing despite our pleas for them to stand still.
And finally, we got a nice picture of the three of them together.
Now why won't they pose like that when it's time to take the annual Christmas picture?!
