I can't tell you how much I dread school picture day.
Lily is just not interested in "smiling for the camera".
To get a decent family picture typically requires someone doing all sorts of gymnastic maneuvers while holding an iPad playing Backyardigans videos over the camera. And that's just to get her to look in the general direction of the camera. No guarantees for smiles.
So when I get the dreaded picture package from the school, I simply select the absolute cheapest option, enclose my check, and say a prayer for everyone involved.
I have never gotten a school picture worth displaying.
Until this year.

Also. She looks like a bit of a pistol here, wouldn't you say?
P.S. That cute picture calls for a much cuter frame but I scrounged around for one to get by with this morning because I couldn't wait to share it with you.
