So after some serious technical difficulties, and having to redo a number of photos, here are my so-so portraits.

The Army Man

At first I was going to ask Kyle to turn to the side a little or something so he wasn’t looking straight on at the camera, but I decided against it. Straight ahead captures who he is better: he’s always looking forward and is a guy who walks a straight line.

I think this would have been better if he had been wearing his camo hat. He seems to always be wearing a hat.

After FHE the other night, we went sledding. It was great, and I wish there had been enough light to get any photos from the sledding. After that though, we all had some hot chocolate. After I saw two of them laughing and joking, I asked them to hold that pose for a photo.

I wish I remembered what they were looking at. This was a lucky shot though. The expression on Stacie’s face was much more fun in this photo than any of the others.
