5 Going on 15

Ganlu, the photographer behind most of the photographs on our website and blog and our amazing web designer, is rarely seen without her camera in hand. The kids have come to expect that...

On a recent afternoon, Ganlu was with the children and picked up a toy camera in the playroom. She pretended to take a picture of Victoria with the big, plastic camera.

"Smile!" Ganlu told Victoria.

Victoria rolled her eyes.

"You have a real camera. Why are you playing with that camera? It's for little kids!"

Poor Ganlu. She can't have any fun.

But Ganlu did convince Victoria to take a picture of her with the toy camera... so I guess under all her 15-year-old-bravado, Victoria is still just a 5-year-old on the inside.


In response to several requests, we created a button that you can put on your blog or website to link shoppers to Amazon so that they can support NDFH in their holiday shopping. You can find it on the right column in the button section. Thanks for helping us spread the word!
