I was excited for a morning alone with my two kiddos. I decided to attempt TAKE TWO at operation Christmas card picture. Surely I could get one decent shot....(Remember TAKE ONE?)
Turns out, no. But out of the goodness of my heart, I have decided to share the outtakes from today's photo shoot with you. Strangely enough, Miss Addison decided to be
a little extremely uncooperative. I would get them lined up in a cute pose and not 5 seconds later...well, the next picture speaks for itself. (Don't worry...Carter was NOT HARMED during these pictures...although not for lack of trying from Addison)
Picture #1: OK, cute. Addison could we get one where you're not doing the splits...and maybe smiling?
5 seconds later
Picture #2: Addison, we're just going to set your brother on your belly...lie still and smile!
5 seconds later...OK I admit that one was probably asking too much
Picture #3: Addison, hold your baby on your lap. Big sisters sweetly hold their brothers.
5 seconds later...
Quick pause to admire this handsome boy...why oh why don't you like him, Addison?
Picture #4: Isolate Addison in the box so she can't try to hurt Carter.
5 seconds later...yes, that is Carter's leg under her arm...
Picture #5: Distract Addison with a book
5 seconds later...apparently she wanted the couch to herself
maybe I could just photoshop them closer together?
Picture #6: Isolate Carter in the black box so that Addison can't hurt him.
Genius! OK, Addison, look at Mommy!
5 seconds later...so close. so very, very close...
Then, I then turned my back for a minute and found that Addison had taken some liberties on setting up the next picture by herself.
I then decided that I could perhaps turn this around....
Wouldn't you just love to see that Christmas card in YOUR mailbox?
I'm NEVER going to get a good shot of the two of them. I'm beginning to think Photoshop is my only option.
