Christmas Card Photo

This was one of the 100 or so candidate Christmas cards shots I took.  It's a shotgun approach.  One of them has to hit, right?  All the stars align in that one instant and everyone is looking at the same point in space, with their eyes open, and their hands in socially acceptable places, and smiles on their little faces.

Not happening so much.  But really, this is exactly what they actually look like, a sort of "Reality Christmas Card" if you will.

[Julie had to work, is now returning home, somewhere, and muttering about how cold it is.  This post was ghost written by Noah, from Julie's perspective.]
