Beautiful girl, you're a lovely picture

We had our yearly photo session this weekend to take a picture for the family Christmas card, just as we've done for the last 28 years. Wow, that's a lot of years when you write it down!

As usual, Alfie and I insisted on taking some joke pictures and messed up many others by having no idea what we were doing. Hansel and Zoolander we are not.

As usual, we fervently wished that our parents would choose the joke/outtake photos over the serious pictures.

And as usual, the parents prefer the serious ones. So we'll be sending out this one:

Selected for our 2007 Xmas picture

No matter how much Alfie and I advocated for this one:

I really wanted this one to be picked.

Alas!

You've ruined it for me. Now, when I get my Christmas card (I AM GETTING A CHRISTMAS CARD, RIGHT?!?!?!???), I'll know what to expect. Becky, your hair is cute. And I'm not quite sure what is going on in the joke picture.

She's sitting on me. But it looks like she just has an extra arm or something.

I will see that you get a Christmas card.

Hee. The first one is lovely and all, but I LOVE the second one.
