More New Year's photos

Love this photo of my daughter and I! But doncha hate it when you've been to a special event and are looking all elegant, but afterwards you view the photos and realize that you should have stood a different way for photos????? After looking over everything, I was thinking that this dress just wasn't very flattering, but it was the way I stood with my arms crossed over my middle. It made me look boxy. I should have put my arms out or down so you could see the fitted silver band of the bodice. But I was so self-conscious about my arms and the sides, where the dress bowed out a little bit under the arms. DOH! I should have just relaxed more and not worried about it!

My favorite gingerbread houses.



I like the size of these photos much better. I made the other ones too little.

Before I read your comments, I was looking at the picture thinking you both look so gorgeous! Afterwards too, but I was surprised by what you said. We're our own worst critics, aren't we?

It looked and sounded like so much fun! Glad you had a great time :)

Your pics are great, you and the dress and daughter and hubby all look fantastic; it sucks when we are SO hard on ourselves. Harder than anyone else would be.

I think you look absolutely stunning! I can understand about the "standing right" for pictures though. I'm terrible at it and if I'm taking pictures for the blog often have to take 10 or more before I get one I like! (Thank God for digital cameras.)
