When Erika was a baby she HATED mall Santa Clauses. The first couple of times we took her for Christmas photos she screamed the whole time, while I stood there perspiring with my blood pressure mounting as the poor photographer tried every trick in the book to get her to stop. I remember finally saying "JUST TAKE IT!" So, Erika's very few photos with Santa show a screaming, red-faced baby!
I thought of that this morning while I tried, single handedly--Glenn is still in bed--to get the girls to pose for a photo outside where the light is good enough at the moment for my iPhone camera.
They were in NO mood to pose; I could not get both of them to sit and stay sitting long enough to snap a shot.
I took LOTS of shots and these are the best! Oh, well.
P.S. No Christmas stockings were harmed during the production of these photos. Cute stocking provided by, guess who? Aunt Kathy!
