Christmas card pics, take 1

We start things early in my family. Since my mom was in town over the weekend, I decided that we should go ahead and try to get a Christmas picture for her Christmas cards.

Thirty-seven pictures and two days later.... well... let's just say taking pictures of a Christmas-y Little Elvis was MUCH easier last year.

What do you mean, smile? Why would I smile when you won't let me play with that pretty red wreath?
That wreath WILL be mine!
If only Gram would let me go!!

I WANT that wreath Gram!
You think I'm going to smile if Mommy holds me? Ha! I will stick my fingers in my mouth just in case she tickles me and manages a giggle.
I don't want to SIT on this ottoman. I want to CLIMB on it. You want a smile? Let me climb on this ottoman!Oh yeah. Give the camera to Mommy. Guess she thought if she put it on some random filter she might be able to pretend I was smiling....
It's going to take more than 37 pictures to crack me!

Tune in tomorrow to see a pic of a semi-smile from me, and even some tears.

Any advice on getting him to stand near something Christmas-y and smile at the camera?

Have you tried a sugary bribe? "When Mommy get's a good picture, you get the lollypop..."
