The McCain Family, Adventide 2008
Liturgical purists, shield your eyes from the vision of a [whispering now] … a Christmas tree….on the evening Advent begins. We did something really crazy this year. We acted like normal people at home and took our portrait that way. We just dressed as we always do when we are enjoying family and home, well, most of us, that is. You can guess who had to go and put on Christmas picture clothes.
We made our annual trek to go Christmas tree hunting, we bagged ourselves a seven-footer, felled it with might blows of a bow-saw and hauled it home, set it up, decorated it, and, presto, all is done, on the first evening of Advent!
And so, here are the McCain children, followed by the formal family portrait. We have here, left to right, Paul (18), Mary (14) and John (17). Next photo: kids, plus wife and mom, Lynn, and the old man in the house. The little fellow in front, in all white, is Sunny, the Bichon Frise.
