I'd get the oldest four to stand still and look at the camera, and the twins and Peach would run off.
Then I'd get Peach to come back, but she'd come right up to me instead of in front of the Christmas tree where I wanted her.
I convinced Pookie to hold her-- but then I had to rein in the twins.
Hammy and Squdge wanted to be sure I caught their smiles on camera. Yup, thanks! I caught the runny nose too.

So Grandma W., this is the best I got. Please excuse the Sharpie on the walls. I have budding artists.
