Have you ordered your Christmas cards yet? Most normal people have not, or they are just now considering their options. It shouldn't come as a surprise to you that Mommy already has ours! She began working on them even before Halloween! She's such a nerd, isn't she?? Please don't hate her; it's just part of her personality. I really don't think she can control it! (And she had a really great coupon.)
I thought you might like to see the torture she put me through all for the sake of the card. She planned to use pictures of each of us from last year's Christmas torture, I mean photo session. She was pleased with her choice of photos of Hunter and Jenna, but Daddy said the ones of me made me look scared. I can't imagine why. The pictures Mommy planned to use of Hunter and Jenna featured lots of Christmas lights with the decorated tree as a back drop. The problem with having the perfect shot of me was that we don't usually have a Christmas tree in the house before Halloween. What? You don't either?? Mommy looked at Daddy with a crazed look in her eyes as an idea occurred to her and he just shook his head. I should have run for my crate.
Mommy proceeded to head to the basement where she pulled out a strand of Christmas lights. She seriously considered putting up a small artificial lighted tree for the background, but thankfully a moment of sanity prevailed. It was temporary, but still . . .
Daddy captured this moment on his camera phone for all the world to see how much Mommy tortures, I mean loves me. I'll admit she only pestered me for about twenty minutes before she finally decided she had a decent shot. I guess I should be thankful she was willing to capture a better looking me. I wouldn't want the recipients of our Christmas card to see me looking less than my best.
I guess if the truth were known, I would gladly suffer through another photo session just because I love Mommy. However, my real problem with all of this is . . .
SHE DIDN'T USE THE PICTURE!!!!! SHE CHOSE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PICTURE! AAGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
