Christmas Picture Outtakes

As many of you probably already know, trying to make your rugrats look well-behaved, cute and lovable in Christmas pictures for friends and relatives can be an interesting experience.  Last night we decorated our Christmas tree and I thought I would use that opportunity to take a nice picture of the girls to send out in our cards (pray God they’re in the mail tomorrow).  Here are the outtakes for your enjoyment…

First Emma…


Then Allison…

Incidentally, the first picture ended up being the winner, but I’m going to wait to post that until Christmas day.

    LOL! So cute. Sometimes the outtakes are just as good as the takers, aren’t they? :)

                    Too cute!

                    My dad’s a photographer, so as a kid I got used to long portrait sessions for the Christmas card every year. I can still hold a Christmas-card appropriate smile for thirty minutes, no problem. :)
