A little egg hunting practice

Today I made Elizabeth do a short photo shoot in her Easter dress for the American Crafter competition. She was just a dream in her dress I couldn't help but post some pictures here. Some days that girl is so beautiful she can't help but take a great photographs. When she isn't being crabby, which seems to be very little these days. I don't know if it is just the terrible twos kicking in or if she is having trouble expressing herself but she has started to cry over nothing and everything, and it is driving me CRAZY!! We went to Santa Fe this week for a day trip and the whole time she was refusing to listen to us or throwing a tantrum because we told her to do something she didn't want to do. It is like all her stubborness and strong will has come out and I am dealing with a hormonal teenager. Hopefully it will go away soon because some days I just want to shut myself in my room and lock the door to get away from the crying.

However today was a good day and she was very sweet. She was so excited to practice finding Easter eggs for the shoot and wearing her "new pretty dress." And I have to admit, I couldn't have asked for a better model. It was so hard to choose the photo for the contest I had so many and she just kept asking me to take more.

Her SMOLDER face, she was trying not to laugh.

It helps that it has been absolutely gorgeous here this week 70 degrees every day, we have spent most of our time at the park and I even got a little bit of red on my arms (time to bust out the sunscreen.) I don't think it will last, Spring here is the worst time of the year. Windy, windy, blow you away. Tomorrow should be the last nice day and then the winds come in and it will be back down to 50 degrees. But I sure am soaking up the sunshine while I can.

Don't forget to go a vote for me this weekend at Naptime Crafters.
