Ah, the annual Christmas photo! In the shot below, taken just before the one on the top of the page, Tigger and Luna are glaring at each other, and Inky is looking at Tigger.

Tigger, Meghan, Julian, Inky, Kennon, Luna, Diane with Prospero (Pros), Rio, and Mithrandir (Mithy).

Then, just before the shot above, Meghan arranged Tigger so she couldn't see Luna (whom she detests). Then Mithy said, "Here, Inky!!! (clap, clap, clap!) (whistle) Here, boy!" Inky turned around to see who was calling him, and Luna did her best to dive out of Kennon's arms away from Inky. Pros laughed madly.

Click, flash! And the moment is frozen for posterity.

Christmas took place on two fronts this year. Only the two youngest kids (and several of the animals) were available for the before-Christmas-photoshoot. We spent Christmas Day in Rock Hill, and then Julian, Diane, and Meghan headed off for Columbus for a second Christmas with as many of the older kids (and, of course, the two grandkids) as were available.

Tree, 2008
We went to a cut-your-own-tree place this year. (It's greener than buying a tree that's been shipped hundreds of miles.)
