Attempting to ... take a Christmas Photo
I don't know about all of you out there, but taking photos is not one of our finest moments. The kids don't really want to take time out of their not so busy schedules (they would rather be playing). The thing is that they haven't learned to cooperate very well, and as a result, the photo sessions take a longer amount of time than necessary. We try to coerce, encourage and have patience; however, it pushes the frustration meter over the top sometimes. We have even tried the "bribing" thing (oh yes we did) but.... Is it truly possible to get all six of them to look at the camera and smile at the same time? These takes were the best we got on that day, and so, we will try again ... gotta hurry, need to get those Christmas cards in the mail.
