Our intended Christmas card shoot

The Norman Rockwell side of me said that our Christmas card this year should be decked out in matchy-matchy pictures of our now four-person family side by side all gazing joyfully into camera.  The reality side of me laughed at the Norman Rockwell idea and had to start getting creative.  See, Lily's new thing is that she doesn't want to smile for pictures and Julia still won't make a ton of eye contact, especially with a camera lens.

My big idea for our photo attempt was to have us all decorating cookies side by side.  The girls would be distracted enough to stay in one place for a while.  We'd all be able to be in close proximity of each other.  It should work, right?  Well, kind of.  We got some cute pictures (none of which wound up being on the Christmas card) and a lot of funny laughs.

So, while this doesn't reveal much of the final Christmas card product, here are some funny pictures of our baking photo shoot adventure!

  2. Do you just munch on lily's cheeks all day? They are so delish!!
