Christmas Portraits

This was only five years ago, but I struggle to remember why Zach and Eli were posing in front of the fireplace without shirts on. (Click on photos to see them bigger.)

I think — and I may be totally wrong — but I think Donnie was playing around with the camera settings while I ironed the boys’ shirts. I love how Eli is just a blur of activity. (Boy, is that ever my Eli!)

As usual when you get the boys together for any length of time, they start picking at each other.

Could Zach look any guiltier? And I promise we fed Eli back then. He just looks extra-thin because he was sucking in his breath while crying.
