Today, we embark on the journey back to the San Francisco Bay Area after spending a week in Ottawa, Canada with family. Several digital cameras have ensured that we captured most memorable moments. We have the serious holiday family portraits, but the ones I really enjoy are the photos taken just after we yell, “Okay, everyone be silly now!”.

So here are some of the results of these experiments. Years and decades from now, I am certain it will be silly ones that will lighten our hearts and garner many chuckles. I hope your Christmas holidays with family and friends were filled with many silly moments.
