Here are a few of the Christmas card pictures that ended up being rejects.
I believe this was the first Christmas that no tears were involved.
Usually #3 gets exasperated with her two camera loving older sisters and tears usually show up sooner or later.
The bad news is #3 is now very interested in what she looks like, what she is wearing and how her pictures turn out.

3 girls = trouble

It wasn't just the lighting that made this a bad choice

Looks pretty good.... except #3 looks too old and sassy.

We told #1 that she obviously stayed up too late the night before because her eyes were puffy and squinty.
She didn't take the news well.
She never does.
Here she is trying to pull them open and make them bigger.
She's going to regret doing all of that stretching around the eye area when she's older!
It is a great nostril and throat shot though.

from the right:
#2 is almost baring her undies - #3 lost her neck - not really sure what #1 is doing


except this time....I see London, I see France, I really do see someone's underpants!

The one we settled on.

Beautiful girls!!! I had to laugh looking at all the pictures, because we had some crazy times in the past trying to get Christmas card pictures. And that was before digital cameras. We used to take rolls of film, just to get 1 good shot!!! Love the Christmas card! Hope you had a wonderful holiday! Love & blessings from NC!

Poor girls. Can I recommend a good therapist for you having posted these pictures? ; )

They are all complete knock-outs, by-the-way, and I love the picture you finally decided to use.
