The majority of our Saturday was spent getting the girls bathed, dressed, and then doing their hair. Because, guess what? I finally got around to taking photos of the girls for my Christmas cards, yesterday. This is one of them, but it isn't "the one," in case you're wondering. I really wanted to recreate this picture, but my girls (especially Bria) were just not having any of it. And then my memory card was full and that was the end of that. No way were they going to stay nice and content while I ran to get another one. They were barely holding it together as it was. I kind of like how it turned out, though. Maybe I'll try again and put that part at the beginning of a photo session instead of at the end. Maybe.
Never you worry, though. I got plenty of good ones for the Christmas card. I even managed to make the card, upload and order it by 1:30 in the morning (no wonder I was falling asleep in church today...), so as long as The Maestro gets his letter written in the next couple days people will actually get their cards by Christmas Eve. A Christmas miracle!
Speaking of The Maestro, I was thankful to him for traipsing all over in the snow to help me with the photo shoot, even though it was a concert day for him yesterday. Of course, I had to pay him back by going to his favorite restaurant for lunch. Besides, the girls deserved a treat, too. After all, they got all prettied up on a Saturday afternoon when they would have much preferred lying around watching TV.
I don't know about you, but I'm off to take that Sunday nap I've been looking forward to all week...
