Christmas Pictures

We had a great time last week getting our Christmas pictures taken. I'm proud to say that I sewed that sweet little baby dress for Hannah! She was a terrific model and made me so happy to have made a special outfit for her. It took the better part of a day to make, but I know it will go a lot faster next time since I spent a bunch of time fumbling through the instructions and getting back into the swing of things. Some day I will kick my habit of attaching at least one piece to the wrong side! Fortunately, a seam ripper always makes those mistakes easy to fix.

A few of the things we did to make the photo session easier on her were to go for an AM appointment right after a meal. Sorry Santa, you're not in our pictures because she prefers Mama and Dada to hold her. It was also nice going to a studio because we could take a quick break to change her diaper as necessary and have the happy, smiling baby right back in the camera lights. The best part was that we had a Living Social deal so we saved a bunch of money on the photo package. No, that's not true. The best part is having adorable pictures of Hannah to share with our family and friends!
