Merry Christmas!!!

This is our Christmas Card. We did one side as the family Christmas Card...
and the other side as Reid's birth announcement. I LOVED how they turned out. I will add the link for where I got them later. We are blogging from out of town and are having a wonderful Christmas week. Unfortunately I haven't had time to blog or read blogs, but I will catch up on both soon!
MoMo and Ray came over to take photos for our Christmas cards (all these photos are from that night) a few weeks ago.
Lilly is giving Reid a kiss in this photo. Sweeties!
I LOVE this photo of MoMo and Reid.
Ok, so for the card I just wanted a picture of Lilly looking at the camera and smiling. OH. MY. This was not easy. I got several photos of her smiling looking the other direction or smiling looking at the camera while clapping with her hands in front of her face, etc.
Sorta like this one....
Proud Mommy and Daddy
Or like this one....
or this one (priceless)....
Well, she kept getting off of the couch and I kept putting her back and we went round and round for a while. Daddy decided she needed a change as we were both (by both I mean Lilly and I) getting pretty irritated about the whole situation.
This is the photo that I ended up cropping and using. At this point it was like she is looking and smiling...money shot! Phew. I was starting to think we were not going to get this photo!
Aunt Vivian helped with Reid while we were putting on a Branson type production to get Lilly's photo.
All of this picture taking just wears a boy out!!
These were some of the other smiling photos of Reid that were great but didn't get used in the card. Love that sweet smile and those pinchable cheeks!

Well, Merry Christmas everyone!! Hope you have the best holiday yet!!!! We are praying for you all to have a blessed New Year as well.

Come link up with Arkansas Bloggers. The link for that is on my blog. Until I actually figure out the best way to organize everyone, I will have everyone link up with Mister Linky. Happy New Year!
