Are there ANY pictures worth using?

Ok, here's the deal...we stopped by Jere's Moms on Sunday after church so she could see Maggie in her Christmas finery. We just busted out the camera and said, "ok, it's now or never, let's take some pics." So, my question to you...my peeps is this. Is there even ONE picture amongst these that is worth using for our "Christmas letter"? Your job is to click on each pic, give them a looksy and then vote. They are 1 - whatever, going down to the bottom. I'm not kidding here, I NEED votes on this matter. I don't foresee anytime coming again where we'll get it together enough to take a picture. I'm not entirely pleased with the fact that I'm shiny, I didn't even powder before the pics, THAT is how impromptu it was. And then, any of you know how to photoshop? I mean, if we could just get ONE good shot of Max to go along with some good ones of the rest of us. Anywho, vote away, I'm counting on you people! Lurkers, my lovely "stalkers" you need to get on the stick and vote too! I NEED HELP! With that said, Have a lovely day. I'll post some pics tomorrow of Maggie and her betrothed, 'cause it's sweet. (You CAN click on each pic and make it big.)

Love you all, thanks for your help.
Merry Merry

Okay I am voting for 15. I don't seem to have the right software but it is easily possible to photoshop out the shininess you complain of. Excellent backdrop!

I had to laugh that both kids were looking at the camera in the one where both parents were looking at Maggie!

18 gets my vote. Photoshop and red eye can all be taken care of wit h photo edits. Merry Merry! Peaches and Cream

I meant, shininess and red eye

Okay I only see 8 pictures, so not sure what 15 or 18 looks like. My vote is for #5 because Maggie's smile is so cute, #7 because Maggie looks so over taking pictures and the last one because Jere didn't get the memo about looking to the side.
They're all fun. Maggie looks absolutely beautiful. Merry Christmas.

I too only see 8 pictures and #5 was also my fave. I'm a fan of Maggie's adorable smile, you guys both look good, and Max's profile gives you plenty of his face to see. It's impossible to get small children to ever look perfect all together!!

Really confused about 15, and 18. I like 1 and 2, but 5 gets my true vote. Who doesn't love a baby profile? My only problem with that is the major spot going on in Maggies eye.

Andersonland said...

Feel you on the Christmas pics....we had a few in the which Baby was not screaming and we were not looking like night of the living dead.

Speaking of cards...totally ran out of cards this year, so sorry! But I still luff hugh, if you want a pic, I will send you one, we do have extras of those. :)

Wish I could have one of your cookies, I love cookies. :)

Tara LaRue said...

Fifteen gets my vote. You all look great!

Steph said...

#2 from the stalker. :) You all look fabulous. I love your blog--you make me laugh every time!

Love the profile of the parents. My favorite family picture ever is with our family all looking at a 2 year old lily. The last one--HMMM. Only if you are going for that sort of thing!

what looks like picture number 5 is labeled jpeg15 when you click to make it bigger, that's what I meant by 15. So i guess it's number five for which I cast my ballot.

Mel said...

Hi Carson!!! :)

DianD said...

I vote 5, 6 or 7 as long as you can work on the "gleem" or red in Maggie's eye.... Cute pics

Erika Gunn said...

Alright, alright...I'll vote! Number 5 or 8. It was so so good seeing you guys. I love and miss you all. Hope Mr. Max is enjoying his beanie.

Dixiechick said...

HEY!!! I just looked back at this to see who else had voted and I am now seeing that MY vote is missing. I voted right after "Mel". So that was AGES ago. Weird. I wonder why it didn't post. Anyway, I also voted for #5. I'm bugged. I get no credit for having voted. Lame. p.s. i also got return mail from your email...b-day party tonight for Livy @ 6:30pm at mom's.

AT first I thought I should not reward your behavior, after your emotional tearful outcry.... however, I know what it is like to post and not get comments... so, my vote is also for number 5 (starting with 1 at the top). Great pic of your little family. LOVE IT! Happy New Year!

Crandell Fam said...

Yup...going with the status quo here. 5 it is. Not that you still need my vote since it's been AGES and I'm finally just reading blogs again. :)

Now that I am home and can view blog sites, I choose either #5 or 6 as you all four look good in both, and like previous comments, the "eye" dot in with Maggie could be photoshopped to look normal? You all look adorable. And I don't see the shiny! You look radiant! It was so good to see you this past week. You are a great mom/sister/etc.
