*sigh* The bane of every late November. Trying to get 4 kids to smile pretty while looking at the camera while not acting like I'm aiming a fireplace poker in their direction to achieve said smiles. Did I mention natural smiles were the hardest part to effectuate? Did I mention that I had to bribe them with a trip to Whole Foods for gelato?
Without further ado...
My 2009 attempt:
And an extra one because they look so stinkin' cute in their mama-made hats belting out Jingle Bells on the steps (except Finn, who is highly suspicious as to why I'd be photographing such a moment).
