We did accomplish one Christmas goal this year: we made Christmas cards. We love getting cards from friends and family, but I'm embarrassed to admit that 2010 is the first year we've actually sent cards. I know, I know, I know. Hopefully all the cards will reach their destination before Christmas!
I was very excited to use my new camera, so E helped me hook it up to his old tripod and we rearranged our living room for the photo shoot. It would have been nice to take the photo with a Christmas-y background, but our tree is in our basement and the lighting isn't ideal in that part of the house. So the living room ended up being the site for a photo shoot full of laughter, dog hair, and a 45 shots of bloopers.
I knew getting photos with dogs would be difficult, but I didn't expect this...
|It's difficult to get dogs to focus on the camera instead of each other.|
|Sometimes it's difficult to get humans to focus on the camera.|
|Sometimes the camera scares your dog, the dog has an accident on your lap, and chaos ensues.|
|Sometimes you've almost got a perfect photo, but a distraction pops up.|

Do you get make photo cards or do you purchase regular greeting cards? Do you even send holiday cards? Is anyone else having a hard time believing that Christmas is less than a week away?
