Picture taking began. We first had the idea that Captain would sit quietly and gaze at the camera and we'd get a perfect picture of the three of them.
We were able to get one picture of him looking at the camera- I have to admit I love this picture.
The boys and the dog were a little silly and fidgety. I think I should have used the outtakes on the Christmas card.
I finally got a perfect picture of the boys!
Caleb was done, but Luke was happy to keep posing. I love that boy and his smile and those freckles and his heart!
The next day I decided I wanted to try to capture a picture of the whole family. I mean people want to see me and hubby too, right? I gathered Caleb's quilt, made the boys put on their shirts again, talked hubby into posing too, and placed my camera on a step ladder, and set the timer. It took us a few times to get everything right.
Finally a family picture! No matching clothes, no professional photographer, no fancy setting. The picture certainly isn't perfect and I wish the chain link fence wasn't in the background, but guess what? It's fine. The picture is about the people. And I certainly love these three guys!
Merry Christmas from the Garzas!
