As we speak, I am watching the snow fall here in Carleton Place. It looks like we already have 6-9 inches out there. I wonder how much longer it will fall?
Anyway, last post I showed you all our first annual Christmas card of 2012.
This time, I will show you this year's annual card.
Of course, we enlisted the help of our very talented friends from heLENS photography, Jeff and Helen again.

I had a wacky idea to do a cabin theme with the whole family's head mounted on the wall. Fun idea, but the execution of it was interesting to say the least.
First, I bought a piece of white foam core and cut a hole out for our heads to go through. I thought enticing Grey with some bacon would make this a super simple photoshoot. Boy was I wrong.
He really didn't like having his head through that hole. It was next to impossible to get him to put his head in, and when he did, he would grab the food and pull out immediately. Our next strategy was to try with hubby there to hold him. I think it made it worse.
We pretty much gave up, but Helen did get these other shots of G-dog later on. I think he looks quite dapper. Almost as cute as he did at our wedding.
Anyway, hubby was much more behaved when it came to his turn. I didn't even have to entice him with food to put his head through the hole... but then, Hubby is always ready to ham it up for the camera.
Here are a few of our fun photos and outtakes:
And a couple more...
All in all, hilarious day of photos.
The front of the card turned out like this:
And luckily, thanks to the other photos of Greyson, we managed to have a hilarious back of the card too.
See you next week!
