We were able to find a day to take our family picture on December 3rd. We set up the camera on a tripod and set it on self timer mode and we tried a whole bunch of different positions. Dada told every to "laugh" or "look at Eben" or "hold someones hand" or "go upside-down". He kept it fun and secretly set up a time lapse video of the whole production, which he showed us when we were done. The kids were very impressed and loved watching everyone run around like crazy.
We tried getting a cute "all of the kids in order" picture, but they were a little warn out by this point, especially Tuff.
