Nice family picks.
Take care of the Santa socks on the background.

OH goodness, are you one of those people (like my parents) that makes everyone dress up for these settings, or was this a voluntary thing?

Just kidding, you are fortunate to have children that know how to smile for the camera, mine seem to have that forced grin that looks like they are being tortured.

Beautiful family! Bless you and Happy holidays!!! Frank

Thanks all.
The dressing up is mandatory but they choose what they want to wear, they actually get excited about it. The smile is induced, particulary on my son who will smile beautifully all day until he knows a camera is pointed at him. A mention of Grandma in her underwear usually does the trick. Believe it or not the Murphy the dog is the easiiest to get to pose. The one by himself took about 10 seconds and 3 commands, Sit...Stay...look at me...The kids took about 30 exposures each to get what I wanted.
