Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] The line waiting to see Santa Claus stretched all the way back to Terre Haute. And I was at the end of it.

Shepard, Jean, perf. A Christmas Story. Dir. Bob Clark. 1983. Warner Bros. DVD.

TIME:  10:48 AM
PLACE:  Murphy Company
SUBJECT:  DramaQueen, Santa, StellaDella and MonkeyBoy

The annual Murphy Company Christmas party was held today (see last year’s post for background on the gathering) and I managed to force talk DQ into attending with us.  I NEEDED to have the annual photo with Santa taken so I could have it for our Christmas cards.  I fear that this might be the last year for a photo like this.  The sullen, angst-filled, I-don’t-want-to-be-seen-with-my-family, teenage years have arrived…God help me.  She did manage to produce a happy face for the photo – I’m glad, she’s beautiful, but even more so when she smiles.

It's a cute shot. Hope it's not the last.

You are ahead towards Christmas of all the blogs I follow. I'm glad. It's very cheerful.

What like about this picture is not just that they are all smiling (which is, in itself, quite an achievement in a group photo) but that the smile of each child seems to contain a different meaning.
