Say Cheese!

How the heck did she get old enough for SCHOOL pictures?! Or, maybe the better question is: When did they start taking pictures in NURSERY school?!

Whatever the case, the pics turned out better than I expected. Ellie is notorious for the "deer in the headlights" look when posing for photos and a stranger is behind the camera. *I* wasn't there to scold her and/or bribe her with Princess Stickers either. Not sure how it was accomplished in MY absence, but Miss R, Ellie's teacher, not only got her to look at the camera, but her tongue is inside her mouth and she's curling up the sides of those lips in a semi-smile. What happened to my baby NEEDING me for all these things?!

Her class picture is beyond precious, but I wasn't sure if it was against the cyber rules to post it. I'll err on the side of caution (and not wanting to be beaten up by some of those crazy mama and papa bears!) and keep it from my blog. BUT, I will sheepishly admit that I was so happy that Ellie was sitting in a regular chair, just like the other kids, lookin' like a typical 4-year old. AND, she wasn't the only kid with glasses either! Petty observations, I know, but sometimes I'm a bit crazy that way.

What an adorable picture! Sarah got pictures done too (she's in preschool as well) but we don't have them back yet. They're the high tech kind where you can pick the background you want. Ooh la la! Remember the library book shelves?!?!?!?
Is Ellie loving preschool? It has been really good for Sarah, and she loves it!
Ellie looks so grown up with her hair back and in that sweater. Where does the time go?!

Wow, she does look so grown up! What a big girl. I attended picture day with Malayna again this year. I'm such a helicopter Mom! I may have to "borrow" your idea and post hers on my blog too.

This is a great picture. Deer and headlights look or not. Ellie is a beautiful child and I never noticed until now how glorious her skin is. Good Night.
