Lilypad Dad built a nice fire in the fireplace last night while we started our Christmas decorating. We decided to take advantage of the pretty fire and LP's good mood to try and get a picture for our Christmas cards. She loved getting into her pretty Christmas dress, tights and new shoes, but that was the end of the success.
She has listened to our warnings about the fire and didn't want to sit or stand in front of it so I could get a picture. Then we had a meltdown when I took her dress off to try to clean some dirt off (we are still finding fingerprint powder everywhere)and that was the end of the photos. The only thing that calmed her down was watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas (her mommy's favorite)but none of the pictures were usable for a card.
