In an effort to be slightly less December-stressed, I'm taking Christmas card photos with just two kids at a time this year. Two kids are about 1/10 the craziness of six and my plan has the added benefit of buying just one sweater for the big boys to share. Xander and Hans are on hold while we search for Hans' sweater( I'm afraid it was unwittingly place in the Goodwill bag) and poor Stefan-- he's so patient and Mary gave us exactly 68 seconds before running back to the car.
But we hit paydirt with Ben and Gabriel. Gorgeous evening light and our fabulous friend Roger (note how he's converted to BYU blue) allowed us the use of his tractor.
After a lifetime of being told , "You look just like your mom!" Ben finally looks more like Erik. He's relieved.

Look at Gabe clinging to Ben. Just two minutes ago Ben was my first grader with bowl cut hair and angel eyes. Sniff.
out of focus-- but I love it!
