Tree, Cards and First Christmas Header Photo Shoot= Total Flop

     Hi, everyone! Christmas is in the air, and now that Thanksgiving over it's time for my house to move onto Christmas. We got our tree (that I picked out), have set up some lights (need more, and still have to set up our Christmas Doxie, Pearl) and the Christmas cards have been pouring in (Dachshund Mommy: for Nola, that is. I haven't gotten the first damn one, LOL!). I address all my cards, now we just need stamps and to send em out.

     I had my first photo shoot for a Christmas themed header, and that was a total, utter flop. Not my fault, it was all Mom's. The light was bad (it's been grey and overcast for the past few days. Hello, I live in FL! This isn't right!) and her ISO was too high (which she didn't realize till the end of the shoot), making the vast majority of the pictures grainy. SO, I have to reshoot today and see what we get! Wish us luck!

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
Some of my cards. Plus 2

"Momma!! I got one from my BFF Lily Belle!"

Dachshund Mommy: Nola was VERY interested in her BFF's card, it was so cute
She even opened it to read it!

More cards

This is MY card

It's from The Dachsies with Moxie!

Gettin to work on my own cards. See Mom's iPhone with the black Doxie case? How cute is that!

This and the two below were the only semi decent shoots we got. 
I have  bow. On my head. See?

Aww, so cute
Christmas trees!
Why yes, Mom, I DID have to bark at that lady. Duh.

It's a cute little crooked Charlie Brown tree! This is obviously pre lights and ornaments

  2. I've been the only recipient of Christmas cards, too! BOL!

  3. I am busy getting my cards ready to mail and I have to wrap my gift exchange and get that to the post office too! It is so much fun going to the mail box each day and seeing letters with my name on them! Great pics, my friend!

  4. We are having a blast going to the mailbox and finding cards for us. We think your photos and tree are beautiful. Mom has got to get busy and address our cards.....
