Cute-kids-in-front-of-the-Christmas-tree photos


Well, the annual Christmas trip to Picture People was a total failure. Please remind me never to go back to that place. Did you know that they are instructed to show you no more than 2 photos of any one pose? And did you know that they only have 3 possible configurations for 5 children, one of which I think is totally dumb and would never buy. So that left us with a whopping 8 photos to choose from - 4 of my 3 with their cousins, and 4 more of my 3 together. None of which were nearly as cute as the ones for which I made my poor children pose in front of the tree when we got home. It was such a miserable experience for all involved that I'm seriously considering buying myself a little muslin and setting up my own "studio." Good news is, Reagan is no longer deathly afraid of Santa. The photo with him turned out reasonably cute, and redeemed what otherwise would have been a worthless trip to the mall. It also compelled Danny to buy me a better camera lens for Christmas. So maybe it wasn't so bad after all...
