Dale picked out the outfits this year, getting the girls matching dresses on his trip to the Masters several weeks ago. Ivie's was a little short, and Macie's a little long, but the photographer worked her magic and made them both appear identical for these shots.
I always worry about Macie smiling for the camera on picture day. Probably because she hasn't always been the best when it comes to being photographed! But, based on this round of pictures, I needn't worry any more. Macie is all grins for these. It's Ivie that doesn't seem to pull out her best smile for all of the pictures (namely her graduation one), but I guess I can't really blame her, since it probably felt weird having that cap and gown on...
Without further ado, here are the 5 shots from this year. (Dale picked the girls up from school on picture pick-up day. Instead of worrying about me being upset at him for not picking out the best pictures to purchase, he decided just to buy them all. Smart man.)
(Ivie, 5 yrs)
(Ivie, 5 yrs)
And the Preschool Graduation shot...
(Macie, 2 1/2 yrs)
And, the duo shots. First, the one with the not-so-great Ivie smile...
And now the best duo picture they've ever had taken!
Another round of successful school pictures! It makes me sad to think that this is the last round of pictures for Ivie at daycare. Her next school picture will be from Kindergarten! And it will be Macie and Bryce in the daycare pictures in the fall... Pretty sure it will be Bryce that I'll have to worry about not smiling!!
