Chistmas pics, take 2

As promised, here are some more attempts at making a super-sweet, super-cute Little Elvis Christmas card for my parents.
Clifford's not Christmas-y! Just because he's red? You guys are REALLY stretching here...
Speaking of stretching, what's Christmas-y about this ottoman? Looks like Spring to me!
Now you're giving me a light green blanket and a red pillow? C'mon! I need REAL inspiration here.
I can NOT work under these conditions! A cuddle by Gram helps.
The Disney Channel helps, too.
Uh-oh, I feel a smile coming on -- better put my finger in my mouth!Wait a second! Where did the Happy Monster Band go?
These monkeys aren't half-bad...

OK, OK, I'll give you a real smile. BUT I don't think this background is going to work... Back to the drawing board Mommy!

Adorable! We're going to try this very same impossible feat later this week. Why, WHY does it have to be so hard to get a toddler to crack a smile on demand??? good luck with your photo shoot!

Your pictures made me laugh out loud. The one of him where you said, "I cannot work under these conditions," was so adorable. I felt his pain. The last one was excellent. Do you have photoshop?

Maybe try some outdoor ones?

The last one is a great smile though.

I hate how all my friends' babies just seem to pose for the camera all the time! Glad to see I'm not alone in my misery!

It's sooooo hard to get good shots when they are so busy with everything! That last smile really is a treasure of a picture though. I agree with mpotter - do you have photoshop so you can change the background??
