For me it meant a chance to spend some quality time with one of the adorable 3-year olds on the planet: my niece Giovanna.
I didn't do much on Christmas itself, but I was at my brother Mike's for Christmas eve. (He is Giovanna's Dad). I still can't believe that I managed to get her to hold still long enough for a photo with her parents.
The photographer in me wishes that I closed the blinds behind them in that shot because the extra light from behind kind of washed them out. Oh, well - live and learn.
Of course, after a snapped a couple of candid shots of the family - Giovanna actually grabbed my camera from me. She's only 3, but she managed to take this shot of my other brother, Mark.
Not bad for a 3-year old.
Talent clearly runs deep in the Nemecek clan.
