  1. I love that photo! You can never get all the kids to behave or smile at the same time. My sister-in-law sends me a photo of her grandchildren in a group at least twice a year. There is always at least one that isn’t looking at the camera or is goofing around but I love them because you can get a glimpse of their personality.
