The Making of a Christmas Card

I had originally planned on having family pictures taken this fall and using that for our Christmas card.  However, the weather never cooperated when we (or her) were available, and then when it did I ended up with an eye infection, and then when that cleared, ms. mouse scratched the heck our of her face sledding.  So, we decided to just do a quick picture in front of the tree.  Quick.  Key word is quick.  What ensued was an hour of trying to get the lighting right, animals to sit still and kids to smile nice.


I'm not sure which is harder, getting the animals to sit still or getting the girls to not have a cheesy smile.


The cat and the dog kept trying to attack each other.


Which then made Maci (the cat) dig her hind paws into Alayna's back.



So, needless to say, after an hour of taking at least 100 pictures, we did get ONE good one.  I don't think Brad will ever do that again...

Do you call one of your daughters Mouse? We do, and I have never heard anyone else use it. So excited to find another.
