It's that 12 days of the year when the Bettis grandkids ages are in sequential order. This year, they are 1 (Martin), 2 (Harrison), 3 (Alice), 4 (Clyde) & 5 (Elliott). We started off with a couple in a crabby mood, so I had everyone make a sad or mad face.
Then we tried happy faces. It worked!
We moved outside. It takes some wrangling to get 5 kids 5 and under all looking halfway decent in the same photo. Janelle and I did our best and they really are darling children so we got some cute photos. I hope we can do this every year.
As witnessed by the mutual gazing and spontaneous hugs and laughs, this is a group that really enjoys each other's company - a fun bunch of cousins!
