Let's just say, children will not cooperate when you have such grand plans. The end.
What, Mom? You want us to look at the camera? And SMILE? Yeah right.
This was the best picture I got of the girls together. So much for Christmas cards. I do love the picture though. It shows their relationship. They really love each other. Annie is sharing her leaf with Lucy. So sweet.
Annie is usually really great when taking pictures. She will give me great big smiles and is totally adorable.
Like in her 6 month photos:
On this particular day, she was more into eating leaves. Apparently leaves are delicious (I wouldn't know) since I had to retrieve half chewed foliage from her little mouth more times than I would have cared to.
Annie refused to look at the camera. Her eyes were lifeless. The leaves were just too intriguing.
Thankfully Lucy saved the day! She's been really hard to get good pictures of lately. I'm so happy that she was in a sweet mood and I got some great pictures of her. Some of these are definitely getting put on display.
Lucy is getting to be so grown up. She's silly and fun. I was so thrilled to get some pictures that depicted her personality!
Now I'm desperately trying to decide what to do for a Christmas picture. Getting a good family pic might be hopeless. I'm beginning to think a collage might be nice.....Ha! Stay tuned to hear about my second attempt. Although it might be a few weeks before I have the courage to try again. =)
