Yeah, I thought it was pretty awesome.
This time went a little better, as I was much more on top of sensing when the moment was right to do the photo opt and seizing it.
|Note the better color contrast on the white couch piece|
However, if that's the plan in the future, we're rearranging furniture so they're either on the floor or on a large enough neutral colored couch (two sides of the room in which this happened have a very nice for photo opts sectional couch which was already broken down and rearranged to fit the tables, a few chunks can totally make over to the non-windowed wall), because the too-small-busy-pattern long-since-dead-cat-clawed fainting couch just isn't doing it for me.
I have admit, I did drop the ball a little on properly conveying what I was doing outfit wise to all the other parents ahead of time (and not even for a good reason, but just because I was lazy and subsequently a bad communicator), so I'm sorry about that and will make sure to do better for future gatherings.
You know, assuming they *let* me continue to do this for future gatherings.....
I'll get them
