Cider says Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays ~ Only 2 more weeks to go until Christmas. I have most of my shopping done and the Christmas cards are ready to be mailed tomorrow. I actually feel like I will be able to avoid the last minute rush this year. . . . but then again . . . relaxing is usually what leads to the last minute rush, lol.

My hubby photo-shopped a Santa Hat on my favourite picture of Cider. It turned out very well I think! She is not very co-operative when it comes to hats, lol. My husband even erased the blue harness and red leash. The original picture is on the side of my blog roll, for comparison.

Hi Karen, Cider and Hubby...that photoshop is something, I was thinking how comfortable Cider was looking. I hope you and your family have a fabulous Christmas Karen. I had to laugh when you said usually when you are relaxing that brings the last minute rush. I have a feeling I will be rushing because I seem to be pretty laid back, of course the cold does not help! Enjoy the holidays, all the best.

Hi Karen,

Cider looks wonderful decked out with the Santa hat.
Glad that you are up to date with cards and gifts, a good feeling.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

Karen, that is a wonderful photo, I still can't figure out how to use Photoshop!!!
I am glad you are having a chance to relax, I am sure I will be going mad till the final minute. I never learn!

Karen, Cider is cute as can be. I am surprised you got him to sit still & keep the hat on his head. Mine would never have stood for this. I LOVE IT!

Merry Christmas, TTFN ~ Marydon

Hi Marydon, Cider wouldn't stand for it either, lol. My husband put a computerized santa hat on an image. Looks real though :)

I tried a real pose for about 5 minutes. I should post my blooper photos!

Thank you for visiting, Karen

Cider - you're smilling now but who knows what other outfit you'll end up in next --- perhaps a modified Easter Bunny suit in a few months?! friend Darla
