“Never work with kids or pets” is a show business saying frequently attributed to W.C. Fields and while I’m pretty sure it refers to the fact that audiences ignore adult actors when cute kids and/or animals are around it should also serve as a warning to not attempt taking Christmas card pictures when you’re in a hurry. Being a typical mom on a mission I ignored these words of wisdom and forced Ryan and Finn into a frustrating hour trying for a photo that included both of their heads and could fit on our Christmas cards. Since this is the middle of December in the Pacific Northwest it was too dark in the house and too wet outside for my iPhone so finding a suitable location was tough. Finn couldn’t sit still (typical dog) and Ryan didn’t want to be told what to do (typical teenager) but I just kept clicking and this image next to our front door and out of the rain was the best of the bunch.
To all of my WordPress friends and family I wish you Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a peaceful and prosperous New Year! I’ll be away from my computer and regular posts until the end of the month but look forward to catching up with all of your blogs and activities in January. 🙂
