The Quest for the Perfect Christmas Card Photo

Christmas is quickly approaching and we still haven't sent out cards!  Cards from family and friends started arriving this past week with beautiful family photos.  Of course it's too late for me to book a photographer (new year's resolution to plan ahead??) so I'm on a mission to take the perfect family picture.

Last weekend we went to Birch Lake with hopes of doing some hiking.  Turned out there weren't really any hiking trails so we climbed on rocks and walked around.  It was a beautiful Oklahoma day and the girls were happy so I couldn't resist taking a few pictures.



This last one is cute, but doesn't have the whole family.

So, fast forward a week.  The weather was once again gorgeous so I enlisted the help of my visiting mother-in-law to point and shoot.  We spent some time at a friend's cabin in nearby Pawhuska, OK.


Lil' Bean is ready...

...Monkey is not paying attention, but Riley Dog is!

Oh, Riley!

We lost Lil' Bean completely...

The sun is about to set on this session.  With squinty eyes we gave up and went out to dinner.
