Pictures of our Sweet Alice

I finally got around to getting a photographer to take pictures of Alice and the family.  We met on a Sunday afternoon at a hiking trail near the lake, and the photographer took us down to the water to take the pictures.  Alice did great, even stopping to pose for him on occasion.  We collected rocks for Alice to throw into the water while the photographer just took candid photos while she played. 

A few weeks later, the photographer came over to the house to show us the pictures. He had even put together a slide show with the pictures. Alice likes to looks at pictures of herself, but for some reason, the video with the music makes her cry ;-( Big tears began to well up in her eyes and she just started bawling...but she wanted to see it again and again. The music is Louis Armstrongs "What a wonderful World".  We ask her why she is crying and all she will say is that shes sad and scared.  We don't know if its the music or what, but we finally had to put it up and not let her watch it again.

These are just a few of my favorite pictures.  We take pictures of Alice all the time ourselves, but others are able to get a different side of our sugar bear.  We also wanted some of her personality to show through in her clothing choices and accessories.
