On "my" side of the family, my three kids have four cousins. If you do the math (3 + 4 = 7), that means big fun. Between early November and early January, there is a window of time where each child is a different but sequential number. Got that? Basically, the oldest cousin is 6, the next oldest is 5, and so on down to 0. We have a tradition of taking a "Cousin Picture" every year during this time. This year we made all the girls similar skirts and decided to try for a really festive picture. You'd THINK that with 3 moms and a Grammie, this wouldn't be a big undertaking. You'd be wrong.
Here is my best shot - only one child not looking and no screaming.
As you can see, despite much excited jabbering and attention getting from the grownups, the situation quickly deteriorated.
