noun: chaos; plural noun: chaoses

"Snow caused chaos in the region."
|2.||Five children ages 3 and younger "caused chaos in Grandma's annual birthday photo."|
Christmas Eve at my parents' house is both a Christmas celebration and a birthday bash for my Mom. Since the first grandchild was born in 1982, we've been taking the annual snapshot of Grandma and the grandkids.
In the first version of 2013 (at top), my Mom and my niece, Paige, were the only ones ready for their closeup. (That is one rule I try and stress with adult "models" in photos with kids: Be ready at all times. A+ to both my Mom and Paige!)
The scene was somewhat reminiscent of a long-ago grandchild shot - the first that contained all seven of them, back in 1994.(Paige again pulled through for me: She was the only one looking at me in this particular shot.)
