You may have guessed by now that the Stones are a photo-happy bunch. Christmas morning made this painfully clear as a substantial number of the gifts were photos… of ourselves. Some would call this narcissism. I would call it wringing the last drop out of the wedding photos.
And of course, Christmas means the Stone Family Christmas Photo, into which James was initiated this year. The Christmas photo is a big deal around our house – remember that year it snowed and the year mom and I rocked the matching outfits?
Because the reality is that in between portraits of familial perfection and smiling faces, there is a lot of complaining, a lot of whining, a lot of griping, and a lot of mounting annoyance with each other.
Hope you all had wonderful Christmases with your family!
