This is the first picture I took of us in the snow yesterday.

Nice enough, except for Mr. Solemn there.  It is a holiday picture, after all.  The second one he looks just the same, so when I hurried back for the third (I was using the self-timer – this one gives me 10 seconds) I told him he could smile.  He said something like, “I could.”  So I told him he was going to have to kiss me.  He started making “mwah” noises, then the camera clicked.

This lightened him up sufficiently for the pic we both like (though we both like this one, too).

Mission accomplished!
