Some Assembly Required

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.

Now that can be a whole production to get organized, as it sounds!

Hi, William. By now most of the participants in this little undertaking know the routine. The big adventure is choosing a hat out of the bin! The most difficult bit is setting up the two umbrella lights, tripod and camera. My nephew takes the pictures and I like to think his interest in photography and his little side business all began with this little annual project.

All told we had about 20 people in the pic, 'though another 20 or so were in and out during the day
