|"How's this, Mom? A jaunty head tilt."|
"Do I look goofy? 'Cause I feel goofy."
Oh, sure. We ROCKED it! But was that enough for her? No. She asked us to "stay" while she took a couple quick snaps of some of the ornaments ... like this one:

In the days of America's frontier Army, the women used to decorate Christmas trees with the brass uniform buttons worn by their husbands. Mom loves continuing this tradition!
But back to our poses ...
|"How about this?"|
"Uh ... Houston, we have a problem ..."
Maggie was having some slippage issues. Mom snapped another quick photo:

Mom let Maggie switch into "bandana mode", but then ... it's like Maggie's slippage problem was contagious, and ...
|"Mom? A little help here!"|
"Good, Mom. Much less goofy."
Yeah. Mom decided to let us both go bandana style and to quit trying to get ornament shots:
|"So much better! Big finish, Mags!"|
"Wouldn't it have been easier to do bandanas from the get-go?"
I think Maggie was right. "Bandana mode" is the way to go -- don't you?
