Christmas Photo Shoot

Anyone who has ever tried to get the perfect Christmas card photo knows it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE! Peyton (3), Ella (22 months) and Neely (9 weeks) were actually very well behaved (especially since I bribed them with M&Ms and lollipops) but the perfect picture was not be be had. But isn't that half the fun?

The key is to take a lot of pictures. Somewhere in there you are sure to get some cute ones! I took about 150 and deleted at least 50. The lighting was great the day we were taking the pictures so I wasn't too happy with the colors in the pictures. But when you have the two cutest kids and an adorable puppy how can you go wrong?

Neely will be celebrating her first Christmas and I'm sure Santa (and Grampy) will bring her lots of good treats and toys! I think she makes a very cute reindeer.

Isn't this child the sweetest thing you have EVER seen? How could anyone resist that face? We are not sure where Ella learned to cross her hands and say "pleeeeeeeeeeaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" but somewhere she picked this up and it is impossible to say no to her when she does this! Of course she was begging for M&Ms in the picture b/c she had only had about 100! Haha!

Just for fun here are some pictures from the 2009 Christmas photo shoot!

So thankful these two are happy and healthy!
