The next generation

I get the occasional razz for not posting more pictures of our kids. It's a critique I take seriously, as one of the original goals of this blog was to shrink the distance between us here in our adopted burg and the rest of our family back home.
But a funny thing happens between intent and reality. Namely, the game plan changes. Life gets in the way. People get busy. The kids don't want to pose together. And not everyone wants to see endless pictures of the kids, anyway.
So on the rare occasions when they do consent to stop and be photographed while:
1) in relatively close proximity to one another; and
2) one of them does not have a sibling in a headlock; and
3) rabbit ears are blessedly absent
I grab the opportunity as quickly as I possibly can. Because no one really knows when it'll happen again.
Your turn: How do you get kids to pay attention long enough to grab 'em for a picture?
