A world of silliness…

Hey Ma, take my picture now!

Christmas brought the kids… and of course, Mom with her camera, taking (or trying to take) a bunch of cute kid pics. What I wound up with, oddly enough, were dozens of blurry, or semi-blurry shots of the bundle of bouncing insanity that is The Boy – including oodles of lovely faces, a la Calvin… And an equal number of shots of The Girl either attempting to maintain a properly Gothesque expression of disdain, look disdainfully at her brother’s antics, or otherwise project an image of a cross between amusement and angst.

In other words – both were being typical of their age.

Are boys all this obnoxious, or is it just my brother?

Really, I am smiling, and I am holding still! Honest!

See, what did I tell you?

No matter, I still got some terrific shots and had a marvelous time… including Yours Truly getting in on the silliness…
