Creating Our Card

As you might remember from last year, I like to feature Connor in my Christmas card. He’s much cuter than I am! He was totally non-cooperative and wouldn’t look at me or the camera.

I finally managed to get a decent shot though.

This year’s photoshoot was no different. He refused to look at me, despite the biscuit in my hand.

He even got up and walked away, trailing the lights behind him. Luckily, it was a very long strand of lights!

So I tried again today, and got only slightly better results. I could have called this one “All is Calm, All is Bright”.

Half of the lights on the strand were suddenly out. And of course, his eyes were closed.Decidedly not looking at the camera and all the plugs show… as does the dog hair on his favourite rug, which he drags around.

At last, and with a little judicious photoshopping, I got a good picture where he looks somewhat angelic.
