Christmas Card Miracle

I am busily working on putting my Christmas cards together and mailing them out (or handing them out) in bunches this week.

All the cards are going out with this picture in them:

This picture of the three kids is a miracle because:

1) All three kids are looking at the camera.

2) All three kids are reasonably happy while looking at the camera.

3) Rerun was sobbing his head off about two minutes before this picture was taken.

Yes, you read that right.  This was taken the same day as the Santa picture.  I’d intended to get a picture at Molbak’s (a local nursery/gift store) poinsettia tree with the kids all dressed up, but we got there 15 minutes after they closed.  Boo.  Anyway, once we got home, Rerun was in no mood to sit still for a picture.  The older two had been bribed with getting to eat the candy canes that Santa had given them, so they were willing to sit and be happy, but Rerun was having none of it.  He was wriggling off his siblings’ legs and crying – tears, screams, the whole works.

In desperation, I turned to the Webmaster and said, “Pull up YouTube on the iPad, bring up “C is for Cookie” and hold it above my head!!!

You can see the result.  Thank you, Cookie Monster.  You got me my Christmas picture for the year.
