Magically, somewhere from one of Santa's storage bins,
the hats appear, everything from a red velvet pimp hat,
to Rudolph antler caps, to a funereal black velvet
"Bah Humbug!" Santa hat.
Then we all gather for a group photo wearing our choice
of the Christmas millinery. What began as a pretty
casual Thanksgiving stunt, with everyone taking their
own pictures, now involves tripods and umbrellas
for diffused lighting.
The picture below is missing four adults and two
of the three-year-old triplets, all of whom eventually
found their places in line.
