This evening we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and have a little photo shoot in the park. Despite being dangerously close to bedtime, we decked the little dolls out in their signature coordinated ensembles and hoped for the best. Most of the photos turned out poorly. It is a feat getting these two to sit still, look the same way, and smile at the same time. But there were a few gems...
Despite her hesitation to admit it, Josie does adore her sister.
Skills and abilities alert! Standing! Woo Hoo! You go girl!
Josie & Merryn 2012 - Leanne & Elizabeth (me!) 1981
Is it just me or is anyone else tearing up?
And even if every other photo had been an utter disaster, it would have been worth it to capture this treasure:
Sit still while I give you a kiss, d@#mit!
Ladies and Gentleman, you may, quite possibly, be looking at our 2012 Christmas card photo. It's hard to imagine anything that could top that!
Isn't Merryn just a repeat of you. That looks like the way my older boy kisses his younger brother. "I want to kiss you and you will be held in place until I can!"ReplyDelete
You have inspired me to take some piccies today.
I don't even know you guys and, yes, real tears, folks. Real tears. That side-by-side is awesome. Plus, like all of us, I totally love Leanne, I loved seeing a picture of her as a girl.ReplyDelete

Oh, yes, definitely Christmas card material. Those candid shots are way more memorable and endearing than the posed, formal shots. Truly loved seeing the photo of you and Leanne as kids...the resemblance is startling.ReplyDelete
That last one should be a Hallmark card! LOVE it!ReplyDelete
