Getting that perfect Christmas-card family photo is possible. I keep telling the kids that, and telling myself that. Winning the lottery is possible, too. But you can't win if you don't try, right? So I keep lining their adorable little selves up and clicking the shutter, and someday, someday, the unthinkable may just happen. They may all look right at the camera, at the exact same moment, and not a single one of them will look furious, miserable, bored, or ready to flee.
It could happen, right?
