Things don't always go as planned...

You know the saying, Things don't always go as planned??  Well...That was us yesterday!  I have been so excited for Emma and Alyx's fall pictures.  And included in the pictures we were going to do a "Smash cake" session for Alyx.  Well...Alyx was not in the mood for pictures at all yesterday :/  Like at all.  Ugggh. 



There was squirming away...crying...and just plain not having it.  lol  Our photographer is amazing and she was calm the entire time and just let Alyx do her thing to keep her happy.  She assured us that she got some great photos of her though.

I was certain that once we got the cake out that her mood would turn around and she would dive into the cake!


Well...I was wrong with that!  She wanted nothing to do with the cake.  In fact she got a tiny bit of purple frosting on her fingertip, and you would have thought it was the end of the world.  We ended up putting her blueberry puffs around the side of the cake and she ate those so it made it look like she was actually eating the cake! LOL



And this was Alyx sitting as far away from the balloons I bought as possible.  The balloons might bite ya know! =)

It was an interesting afternoon.  Stressful for me...and hoping the photos came out good!

  2. Oh no! It's so hard with kids. I bet your photographer got some good ones though. Looking forward to seeing them.

  3. Emma is always so bad when it's her picture day. We have a Santa session Saturday and I'm pretty sure there will be screams not smiles!

  5. My niece just turned one last week and she wanted NOTHING to do with the cake. She also touched it and it was the end of the world. I'm sure you'll get some good photos though!

  6. We had a smiler experience with our photos. Except it wasn't just Marcus who wasn't totally into it. I had a whining husband too. It was a small miracle when both guys' moods lifted.
    LOVE that you put the puffs around the cake to make it seem like Alyx was eating it. HA!!!

  8. It's always frustrating when you build up a day in your mind and it doesn't go as planned...especially when it's important to you. I'm sorry Miss Alyx wasn't in the mood. But I did see some on Facebook and those turned out really nice! I love their matching MJ outfits! :o)
