This past Saturday, the boys and I took our first Christmas picture without Stu.  I don’t think Case and Cuy gave it much thought, Case because he was too busy trying to stay warm (when you’re 6’3″, weigh nothing, and are outside in just jeans and a button down shirt, 45 degrees is freezing), and Cuy, because he was simply trying not to fall asleep standing there (which is what you get for staying up all night playing video games, dude!). I know I didn’t really think about it at the time because I was caught up in saying helpful things like, “Smile, dammit!” And “Stop hitting each other!” And, “Cuy, if you fall into me one more time, I’m going to beat you!” And “Case, your nose is running. Tissues. Try some!”  And Kim, my beautiful, talented friend from Joslyn Place Photography, just kept laughing at us.

Frankly, I didn’t think we got a single shot worth using but then I saw this and I realized not only did we get a good one of the three of us, we got a good one of the four of us…

Thanks for making the shoot, sweetheart, and for refraining from pelting the kids with bird poop.They definitely deserved it though, didn’t they?

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
