Making Christmas Cards

Do you realize how long and how many photos it takes to get one halfway decent for your Christmas cards? Miss Diva loves dressing up and wearing hats as long as they don't fall in her face or cover her ears. She hates having her ears touched! Well the santa hat falls in her face, covers her eyes if she moves and it had to touch her ears to sit on her head. I spent an hour putting the hat on her head, getting the camera ready only to have her shake the hat off. I got lots of blurry photos, photos without the hat, photos with the hat in the air and even one with the hat under Diva's hoof. She actually had an evil grin on her face in that one! Finally when she realized I wasn't giving up she just stood very still, closed her eyes and seemed to say this is all your getting so hurry up. I took the photo, she didn't move. I checked to see if the photo turned out, she didn't move. I took the santa hat off, she ran to the other side of the pen! So this is the photo that will be on Hidden Haven's Christmas cards. I am not going back out there with the santa hat as I think she would put me instead of the hat under her hoof!

Goodness, you are in the Christmas spirit, aren't you? Snow, Christmas music, a snowman curser. And Ms. Diva, she is ADORABLE. I want her for Christmas! Wrap her up and ship her to Florida. I promise to give her lots of hugs every day! :)

LOL, I could just see me trying that with the goats I have. That hat would be gone so fast!

They do have a sort of wry smile to their face when they get the best of you don't they ?

Nice photo I am trying to figure out how to do mine would like to make a regular card instead of a postcard thing.
