I want to get a picture of just the kids. Sounds simple enough except I want a good picture. I have discovered that getting them together AND in a good mood AND willing to take a picture is going to take a small miracle. I have accepted that this is going to take a while - perhaps even a long while. I am hoping to have something decent (meaning each child looking at the camera, appearing happy even if it is an act, close enough to one another to fit in the frame, relatively free of dirt, lunch residue, spit-up, etc...) by Christmas, but I thought I might as well share what I get along the way.
This first attempt was pretty much directed by Grace (shocking, I know). To get her up on the bed I had to promise candy, show it to her, and I was to understand that she would not actually be touching her brother. After three shots she declared, "I'm finished now."
