Christmas Card Story

Craig and I attempted a Christmas card this year....separate pictures of Jordan and Nola in front of the tree as we figured there was no way we could get them to pose together. Unfortunately Jordan has inherited my unphotogenicness (not a word, I know) and cannot keep her eyes open in pictures. We probably took 50 pictures of Jordan and she maybe had her eyes open in two of them...and not much of a smile in either of those two.

When it was Nola's turn, we put on her Santa hat and she immediately posed in front of the shot and we were done. I was amazed. I guess after four years Nola has figured out the routine.

The set-up

The smiling prop...Elmo, of course

One and done

Haha! Just like her Mommy with the close eyes with camera flash syndrome. Too funny! Love the pics though, no matter with eyes closed, sad face or Elmo in her mouth she is still beautiful.

This is hilarious, but I am happy that her parents are diligent and we have a beautiful picture with eyes open! :-)
