Just one picture, PLEASE!

I went Mothers Day shopping yesterday for my mom. Of course I couldn't find just the right gift and I wandered around the mall for what seemed like and eternity. Then I saw a frame (the one in the pic to the left). It is actually six frames in one. I thought it would be cute to put a picture of Dave and I in the top slot and then a pic of each one of the kids in the bottom five slots.

So I have been snapping pictures of the kids for the last couple of days trying to get just the right one. I took Elyse out to the front yard to get just one decent picture of her. She hates to have her picture taken and she never smiles. She either scowls or turns her head. She refuses to just look at the camera and just smile.

She is two now, she comprehends every word I say so I had a talk with her. I asked her to please sit and be still and to smile at the camera. I told her it was a special picture for grandma. She was very agreeable until I got the camera out. Below is what I got. Sigh. The last picture might work, but I really wanted one of her looking at the camera. Two year olds can be so frustrating at times.

I know I'm late on this, since it's past Mother's Day and all, but I think those pictures show who she is at that stage in her life and I'm sure your Mother loved whichever one you chose.
