Last night we ventured out and had the kids Christmas pictures taken. Seems early, but next week Larry will be in Baltimore and before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here. So I used the kids day off from school to torture them with family photos.
Thankfully this was the first of many pictures our photographer took.
Ruby was actually real cooperative until that flash went off.
Here is Ruby leaving the scene. She just would not sit

What did I tell you? No Ruby in sight.
Can you see the blank spot where she should be.
Here are some fun shots of the boys.
Xander has grown quite a bit taller than Larry

not pose with the group!
She is such a prima-donna.
This is my favorite picture of her.
Don't you just love my $12 find.
I got it at Ross.
I hope everyone else has much more successful attempts at the family Christmas photos.
