Ok, here you have it. Our attempt at getting Christmas pictures!
Well, wouldn't you know it, the photographers had a tree swing at the shoot. Only one of my kids' most favorite things EVER!
So, naturally, there was a lot of swinging and playing, and very little attention to the task at hand.
And if you havent' already picked up on this, Ellie is a little bit, shall we say, "busy"!?
Our photographers, Becky and Misti, had little stations set to and fro where they directed all of us or one of the girls at a time.
Todd was NOT thinking when he pulled out this harmonica and presented it to Gabs only a few minutes before we arrived. For one thing, she played it incessantly in the car.
and for another, she didn't want to put it down when it came time to take pictures. There were even some pics, where we just let her hold it, but asked her to put her hand behind her back.
as with all photo shoots, I am ok with however things turn out. After all, it is capturing the memory of this age. Like the beach pics this year, with Ellie' leg in the air, and Gabbi refusing to even glance at the camera. Do you remember? Now, it's one of my favorite bunch of photos.
This harmonica was given to Gabs earlier in the day by Kelsey's grandmother, MK. She gets my babies treats when she gets her own babies treats!

The girls are actually old pros at taking pictures. For four and five years old, I was pretty proud of them. These are our attempt to get our Christmas cards out and in the mail.
If you go to see them, help a sista out and tell me your favorite few.
I think I can use several on the card. Last year, our card was a tri-fold out thingy, so we could use several pics. I think I want a family pic, but then again, there are some really cute ones of the girls alone.
Let me know what you think. and the above... CLASSIC!
