Impromptu attempt at taking Christmas card pictures...

What happens when, on a whim one morning, you decide to try to take a picture for the Christmas card and you have two adults (one who hates to smile for pictures), a baby, a dog, and the self timer on a camera?

Well, this....
Whoops. Forgot to take the hoodie off.


Where's Layla? And Eli is looking away.


Same thing...


Close... But not quite the one :).

Eli is looking away, my hair is covering up half of Layla's face, and J.C. isn't smiling. Let's try another.

Not it.

Also not it.

This one was the best one and I seriously thought about using it. But, Eli is looking away and he really is the main attraction to the photo (in my opinion, anyway), so I think we're going to try again on a different day with an actual person taking the picture.

Oh Lindsay, you make me laugh with your captions.
The "not it" one?...very funny.

LOL - yes, it helps to have a PERSON behind the camera that can grab the infant's attention when trying to photograph an infant. For best results, use an animated Grandmother.

Well I think the pictures are adorable even if you don't use them on your Christmas Cards.
