For weeks now, I have wanted a "nice" photo of the kiddies in their Sunday clothes. And for numerous reasons, it just has not happened. With our new church time (1 o'clock), we had ample time to get ready this morning. So, I seized the opportunity, especially with their fresh new hair cuts (that has a whole other story for another time). Oh, Van is in red and Noah's in blue. And of course Marlee's in the dress.It took much begging, pleading, and lots and lots of photos. These are the best, with a few "real" ones to show what most of the pics really look like.
I took a couple while Elijah was still napping - that's why he was missing.
For some reason, they could not keep their hands off of Elijah.And in case you are wondering how Van and Noah did with their first time in Primary as Sunbeams??!! NOT SO WELL.
They cried, sometimes screamed and refused to go into the Primary room for Opening Exercises. (A huge thanks to Shannon for taking Elijah so I could drag them into primary) They wanted to be in the nursery with all the toys. I guess I can't blame them, that does sound like a lot more fun than sitting and being reverent. Marlee was so excited to have them in there with her, she played "mother hen" very well. I sat with the boys for the first 15 minutes while they cried the entire time. I told them, "You're big now, and in the big kids class", and they both kept saying over and over again, "I DON'T WANT TO BE BIG!" Eventually they got over it, and decided it was okay. Well, at least Noah did. Van says he doesn't want to go back. I guess we'll see how they do next week. . .
