Guys, can you both sit still and smile?
Okay. How about looking at the camera?
No. At me.
Mark? Put your shirt down.
That's so nice. Now can you look at me?
Um. Please note that the peanut gallery in the background is laughing at my efforts.
No, I didn't want a picture of a dog.
Or another dog.
Hmm, maybe there's strength in numbers?
Let's get more involved here.
Perhaps if we get the awful faces out of the way...
(Please note Grandpa, standing in the back, sneaking out to make a video of me trying to photograph the precious children.)
Um, okay, as long as it leads to a cute picture in a minute...
Not yet. Except for Andrew. Boy, he's cute. And cooperative.
Getting better. Maybe this is why the parents usually have to be in the picture.
I think I'll take what I've got and call it good.
Maybe we should have tried this before dessert.
