So in an attempt to not let perfect be the enemy of good, I'm posting the picture. I hope you had a joyous holiday season in 2012, and will have another in 2013.
Our village hosted a photo night, where you could sign up and have your picture taken for $15, and also included the kids' picture with Santa.
The photos are in focus, so it looks like we spent at least $17. However, they were totally "flat" and looked they were in RAW format, so what you see here is after I processed them in photoshop.
