Let’s talk about things we’re grateful for today:

Life, health, family, country, and digital cameras. 

Because taking a normal picture of my son shouldn’t be this hard. 

Ben is in full-on boycott-the-camera mode so we have to make it into a game. “Let’s see your monster face! Your silly face! Your angry face!”

And then you just hope to high heaven that you get a decent one. 

Little Em is a little easier to photograph, simply because she’s not quite so quick. You have to get her in between drool streams, however. 

And a photo of them together? Happy? Smiling? Forget about it.
