Getting Carded

We'll get a good pic lick-ety split!

Today Kathy came over to take some "professional pics" to use as fodder for our holiday card. In search of the perfect pose, we started off inside. I let the headband stay on for a few minutes but also insisted on letting my tongue hang out.

And daddy looks stoned

We almost pulled one off here but my smile was turned upside down at the last minute.

At least this pose hides daddy's soul patch!

After 5 minutes or so, I got a little fussy and we had to replace the headband with pigtails. Using a book to distract me seemed like a good idea at first. But then I never looked up.

Un be-leaf-able!

We decided to head out to the park. This pose might've worked except for the fact that I was holding something that I couldn't leaf alone.

And there's that tongue again!

Clearly, I was driving everyone crazy.

It's great to be saliva!

Aren't I just the spitting image?

We all know I'm the only one that matters

We really swung for the fences on this one. Daddy's face is partially hidden and mommy's hair's a bit askew but methinks this'll work.

If this were a movie, Squintin' Tarantio would be directing

With one good shot under our belt, the pressure was off and I could let my hair down. Well, not really. It was too cold outside.

Laughter is the best medicine

I found it quite funny that it took us almost an hour to get one card-worthy pic.

Now that's service!

After my photo shoot, the crew bundled me back up and carried me back to my trailer.

Befuddled by the bubbles

Once there, I popped some bubbly to celebrate a successful shoot.

They may as well be cardboard boxes. All I want to do is play with the gift wrap.

Hannukah hasn't started yet but the gifts are piling up. I shook each one to try and guess what was inside.

Old King Coal

Haha! Daddy just whispered in my ear that he got mommy a gift from Guess she was naughty this year!

Gene Simmons, eat your heart out!

Thought it was time for another tongue-lashing.

For me? You shouldn't have!

There's no time like the present!

I can bear-ly stand anymore!

I couldn't bear the thought of posing for any more pics.

That's Ellie with 2 L's!

Mommy helped me practice writing my thank-yous. With all those gifts, my hands hurt just thinking about it.

Hope Daddy agrees to bankroll me again this year
Mommy also helped me practice for the annual dreidel for dollars gathering coming up in a few weeks.

This is my human dreidel imitation. Definitely a gimel!

Happy Holidays 2009!

And here's the final product. Once again, plugging my blog at every opportunity. It's probably time to start monetizing this thing. I wonder if I know anyone who can help me with internet advertising?
