I'm a poor photographer with little patience so typically the pictures are monstrous even when the subjects are perfect.
Trying to get a decent picture is not easy especially when the kids are in a bad mood. Or a good mood. Or a silly mood. Really any mood they are in hampers any effort I put into trying to get one decent picture.
The dog doesn't help matters, although she probably behaved the best.
Deciding to exclude the cats from this joyous occasion was a wise decision.
Even the dog was blinking in this one.
