When I was growing up, my grandfather (my Mom’s dad) would do a huge set up in my parents living room with his film camera, flashes, etc. at Christmas and we all would gather moaning and groaning because we had to do another family portrait AGAIN. I don’t think that we have taken one since the last time he took it and I probably was in high school.

      Melissa will turn eighteen this year and Ryan is now taller than Grandma and this is the first family portrait we have done – crazy how time flies. And everyone still moaned and groaned when they had to get up to get this photo taken. Funny how some things don’t change.

      Merry Christmas everyone!
