Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Card Take 1

My secret has been out for days---I still don't have a picture for this year's Christmas card. Try as I might, I just cannot seem to get my act together! Hence yesterday's omission of a holiday recipe on a linky I host! {I'll post one sometime soon, promise!}

So please forgive any typos, y'all.  It's hard to type while hanging your head in shame!


The other day, hoping to remedy my growing card conundrum, I headed out to the front yard with Sweet Bean for a trial run, knowing that sometimes the best shots just happen and require little, if any, planning at all!

The temperatures were chilly,  especially by Southerner standards and while I love each and every shot I was able to capture, like Goldilocks, I'm not finding any of them to have just the right "fit" for this year's holiday card.

And even though I need one more thing to do about as much as the Situation needs an ab workout,  I'm planning another mini shoot in the next few days. Wish me luck, with only 16 days until Christmas, the race is on!

All I want for Christmas is a couple more teeth!
Bye bye, 2010! Hello, 2011!
My little drummer girl, pa rum pum pum pum!
Christmas is a time of wonder.

Santa Claus (and GG ) are watching you!

'Tis the season for giving...

Tiny hands, big heart!
Naughty or nice? Do you even have to ask?
Peace
Love
and Joy

THANKS FOR LINKING AND SHARING THE BADGE LOVE!

I love these...she is too precious!! Absolutely sometimes the best ones are the ones that are not planned. Over the years of photographing, I learned that!! They were usually some of the best!

Change of plans today....your coming my way & I am coming yours....merry go round!

I think you should do a collage!

Michelle said...

Your little girl is gorgeous! And I'm totally jealous of your warm temps --- I'm about to go into hibernation!

Jennifer said...

I also am loving the pic of her looking down at the little flower. So precious. Any pic you send out of her is going to make your friends and family smile :)

S-I think you got some GREAT shots of GG! She is the cutest thing so any picture you take of her will look great on your card!

I don't think your little one could be any cuter. I understand the pressure is on because you did set the standard with last year's picture. I had to just use a picture from earlier in the year that I'm not 100% crazy about. It was either use it, or it wasn't going to happen-ha!
Also, I need to know where all these adorable smoocked dresses come from. I feel I must start stock piling now for children to come. =)

Shannon said...

I love the pics you took! and the captions!!!

Cherise said...
