Christmas Day with Jamie!

Fun with Nature

We went to our neighborhood nature santuary today for a fun morning making Peanut butter pine cones and walking and seeing nature.

Well we have finally gotten a Card-worthy pic



This was among the last of our third attempt of getting a Christmas card worthy pose of Jamie for our annual card. Too bad that I had already had another card made, but just like last year I didn't order enough so I had another batch made with this photo today. After I think all have gotten their cards (they were just sent out on Sunday!) - I know, they are late as usual!), I will post both cards here.

What follows is the previous attempts on Sunday morning. The girl does not like to pose for pictures!

I had a SAHM afternoon with my girl today. Was wonderful to be able to just 'be' with her instead of herding her up to get changed, fed, bathed, read to and put to bed like the usual night time routine. I have some time saved up for vacation and will be using it up now. THis weekend is a long one being off on Friday and Monday then to work Tuesday and Wednesday and then off til the 2nd! Hooray!

On another note Jamie has become a bit of a whiny little girl, dare I say a 'terrible two'? It's hard to have to put her in time out and be firm with her when our time together is so limited. With family coming over the holidays it will be a challenge, but she so loves the attention, and I will be off most of the time, so it should be wonderful.

I went ahead with one of those pictures for our christmas cards. I am not really happy with the card, I had another picture of the three of us on the card, in fact it is the small one to the right on this blog of us at her adoption party, and had cropped it a certain way so we would be in the center of the shot and the date was cut off, and it recentered the shot the way I didn't want it. Maybe I will scan the card soon and post it.

I may still try to do another Christmas picture of Jamies...We'll see.

Christmas Pictures take two

We tried again to get a good Christmas photo for the cards again now that the tree is up. No go. At least she was happy about it this time. But as you can see we weren't prepared - we didn't have her dressed in any pretty Christmas outfit, just jammies.
