On the editing floor.

The third time was the charm. Hard to believe, I know, but Ella was only mildly cooperative about mama photographing her for this year's Christmas card. What was NOT her fault was the Christmas light malfunction we experienced in Round #1. This is what you will not be seeing this year...

Kudos to her on the interesting pose, but the face gives it away. Done.
 A new day. A slightly better attitude. A change in venue and a whole lot of popcorn for bribing.
Bribe break.
After more hours than I'll ever admit, I created THIS with the big graphic help from no other than NicoleLee Photography.

But it wasn't an easy choice, folks! The two runners up were...

...and the one that melts my heart...

But we were worried you all would be a tad freaked by her face. WE knew she was laughing a big belly laugh when I snapped this. When we asked Ella for her input on the three finalists she told us, "I don't yike that one, mama. Ella's crying." Good point, Ella.

We're gearing up for a busy next couple of days. We spent the morning and afternoon with KatieRoz before they travel to be with family. Tomorrow we will run a few last minute errands and then anxiously await Jesus' birthday. No question, she wraps her little head around that concept better than Santa coming to visit her house on Saturday night. I can't really blame her!

May your celebrations be full of family, friends and laughter.
