Christmas Card Photo Shoot

Ahhh, the joy of dressing one's children up for holiday photos. 

  Poor Bonnie and Bailey.  Poor, poor, poor animals.  Forced to lay, strategically positioned, in a ball of Christmas lights... all so your mother and father can take several hundred photos and choose one for the annual Christmas card.   Your lives are so difficult... so difficult that Bonnie almost fell asleep.

Perhaps if you weren't so good at laying in whatever position they put you in you might have been able to avoid this humiliation... that, and the rapidly rising temperature of the C9 bulbs your mother had to constantly re-adjust to keep from scorching your nether regions.

All and all you should consider yourselves lucky.  Your mom did refrain from buying the matching blue and red Martha Stewart dog sweaters that were on sale for 30% off at Petsmart today.  You could have been wrapped in lights AND wearing a sweater... and lets face it pups... it don't get much worse than that!

Note: no ears, noses, or nether regions were scorched in the aforementioned photo shoot.

We thought of the hot bulbs straight off. Glad to hear that it wasn't a problem.

We know all about trying to get the perfect picture. Looks like you're a little more cooperative than we are.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Erika, You are very definitely NOT a procrastinator! I've got to get past at least Thanksgiving to get the motivation for holiday photo torture!
