The Perfect Family Picture?

I thought I'd try to get a family photo the day after Christmas since I failed to do so on Christmas day. Dad came over to go take us to dinner so I recruited him for the job.

First Take - Everybody's smiling but nobody's looking at the camera. I have just ripped Camden's bib off and am trying to hide it behind me.
Second Take - Brad & I are smiling but Cam is crying & trying to escape.
Third take - Brad is still posing, Cam has made his escape & is trying to run off, and I'm trying to convince him to stay.
Last take - Brad's eyes are squinty & he's holding Cam's legs, I'm holding Cam by the armpits to keep him in the picture, but we are all looking at the camera and smiling.
In all these, the background is cluttered, the dirty bib looks like gym socks, the Alabama shaker is front & center & Dad's foot & cane are in the bottom right corner of the picture.
But I'll put this fancy matte around us and you can just pretend that Elmo, the shopping cart & the bib aren't there, and that we don't look like we are wrestling Cam to stay put.
Perfect Family Picture, Right?
