I apologize for the 2 bad photo links! It should be all set now. Please let me know if you can't view photos. Flickr made a change a few days ago and I can't say I'm all that happy with it. It doesn't make blog reading on phones very easy and my pages are very slow to load.
As I mentioned earlier, I didn't think I was going to be able to get that perfect picture for our holiday card. I wasn't even aiming for a perfect picture; I just needed a picture, preferably with all three kids smiling at the camera. And this was not what I had in mind.
Sharky, aka Allie, thought that smiling with an open mouth or squeezing her sisters' heads was funny. So I sarcastically imitated her and said how I didn't think family and friends would appreciate seeing the inside of her mouth on our Christmas card, which caused a giggle fit.
Thank you very much.
After that torture session was over, the fun began. Anna wanted a photo with her favorite buddy, Baby Zebe.
I thought there would have been more good shots of Allie, who likes to work the camera, but this was her best. I think she was worn out from her earlier antics.
And then came Emily, who was extremely animated.
If all else fails, I suppose I can set up shop as a head shot photographer.
Semi-random but photography related - I had these two pictures printed on canvas for a Christmas present for Rich.
I couldn't believe how awesome they came out. I used Canvas On Demand. And because I'm a super star, I ordered a size that didn't fit the photos. They emailed and corrected the problem for me with absolutely no hassle. (Not sponsored, just a shout out.)
And OMG. I usually don't ever check my stats on flickr. I, unfortunately, mainly use flickr to host my photos and not for much else. At most, a photo of mine may have a few hundred views. When I went to grab that Christmas card photo of the girls, I noticed it had 28,000 views (yes, I almost fell off of the couch) and this one here has 38,000.
I would love to know how that happened.
