Our Christmas was a pleasant one, albeit rather busy. One of the things that's always important to us is having time to spend with the girls. We try to work things in during the month of December that includes them as much as we can. You may recall from earlier blog posts that one of the things we did was taking the girls to see Santa at the local dog bakery.
The profits from the portraits were being donated to a local animal society, so we were happy to pay ten dollars for a picture that we'd be able to keep for a long time. You might recall that Santa left us feeling a bit...underwhelmed...by his demeanor. They had a high tech professional camera that took dozens of pictures in a matter of seconds. After they were done, we knew the first batch of pictures was no good. We repositioned the dogs, got Bunny and Morgan to sit with Blue standing behind them and everyone looking at the camera. I was really excited after that batch of pictures. They told us they'd choose the best one and print it.
A couple of weeks later, I was in the dog bakery picking up a few things and they were distributing the photos to customers. I was glad I was in there since we'd thought they were being mailed to us after we had to fill out our mailing info. The girl put the picture in a separate bag and I took it out to the car to look at it.
I guess I can't complain much. Hopefully most of the money went to charity. I'd hate to see the rest of the pictures if that was the best one, though. At least the snowman was smiling! Hopefully it at least gives you all a smile on a Monday morning.
