   There are a lot of things I could write about for this Sunday Thoughts post. I could write about how much I love the smell of hairspray, or how many times I've played Handel on iTunes or how my dog gets approximately 18 hours of sleep every day.
But instead I would like to discuss a topic that many Americans are familiar with. The Great Family Christmas Picture.
    Let it be known to all that I really dislike taking group pictures of people. Don't let this little fact scare you if you and your family find yourself in a Christmas-picture-worthy-place and I am the only one within a radius of ten feet who volunteers to click your camera for you. I like the idea of taking group pictures. 

Here are some group shots of my siblings and I. As you can see, things got squirrelly.

Despite what you might think Louis is not singing.
Jerome is clearly unhappy.

I promise you we were not shunning Louis.
And the following picture, friends- is it:

Merry Christmas from the ---------- family! (I have a policy on here about not using my last name. But if you want, we can play hangman!)

Great pictures, Natalie!! We just took our Christmas photos also. There was a little bit of a problem because we stood in a line and did it in order of height, not age, and my eldest sister is shorter than my second eldest sister and she didn't like that. :D

"Of my brothers and I" What is Suzanna? Chopped liver!

Hey Natalie,

I can't remember if I already commented, but I awarded you. I just want to make sure I let you know! :D

Oh my. We certainly need to get some good family photos around here. Your hair is very sweet, by the way. So is Susanna's. And if you were really serious about hangman, I guess "P". ;)

Hey Natalie, I don't think we've ever met, but I used to go to Logos (I quit last year) and we have several friends in common. So I thought it might be nice to get to know you. :)

(sorry if me commenting/reading this is weird since I don't know you...)
