We decorated our Christmas tree last night. Abigail watched while we put up the lights and garland. She helped Jonathan put up the first ornament. After that Jonathan and I finished the job.
This afternoon we attempted family portraits in front of the Christmas tree. We dressed Abigail up in a cute green dress we got at Kohl's on sale for $8! The trick for the family portrait was getting Abigail to smile with no one behind the camera (we used the timer). I put our full-length mirror behind the camera so she could see her reflection (which sometimes results in a smile). It didn't work quite like we planned, but we did get a few shots-which I'll post later. Until then, here is sneak preview of Abigail in her cute dress:
