Christmas Cards - the bloopers

As I mentioned earlier, we DIYed the photos used on our Christmas Cards for 2013 on Thanksgiving day.  We (of course) waited until later than we had originally planned so we scrambled to get something together before Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents house.  (Of course we ended up with one of the coldest days up to that point)  We grabbed some holiday mugs and some fake snow (purchased from JoAnn's), went down to one of the ponds on my grandparent's property, wrangled my sweet cousin Annaliese to assist, and went to work!  We were overall really happy with the photos we ended up using but of course there were bloopers along the way.  And in keeping with tradition (since I showed them last year) here they are!

The exchange student staying with Annaliese and her family was in charge of the snow - her first try was slightly...aggressive - ha!

Miley was so over the shoot by this point

our beautiful helpers for the shoot - couldn't have done it without 'em!  (Minari on the left and Annaliese in the center)
