Merry Christmas

Today is our Christmas Day here in Anvilcloudia, so the timing of this card is quite appropriate. Because the A Team will be flying tomorrow, we move everything up a day. We do everything that we'd normally do to celebrate the event, just a day earlier. Last night was our Christmas Eve, for example.

About a month ago, we dressed Nikki Dee for Christmas photos, but it was an exercise in near futility as she squirmed, roamed and refused to look at the camera except for brief and fleeting instants. Since getting a photo of the three of use was too hopeless even to contemplate, I collaged three separate photos together, actually four photos if you include the background. It's not perfect, but it will have to do.

A Christmas card from us to you: I made the clickable version larger than usual should you wish to look more closely.

You did a great job on the card! I think it looks fantastic!

I hope Santa was good to you this morning...and I'm sure he appreciates people celebrating early - you know, it gives him a bit of a break tonight :)

Your little Nikki Dee is getting a mind of her own. Now I do not feel so badly that I cannot dress up my dog Heidi for a Christmas picture.
You did a masterful job on the card.

Merry Christmas and much joy and interesting adventures in the new year. Saying that was unnecessary. I just remembered you will have two little ones to keep you young in the new year.

Awesome job on the collage, AC. Very nicely done. And Merry Christmas to you, too!

Oh and did you notice the Christmas train in your header photo? It's a CP train. The despots at CN would never do anything nice like that.

Yeah, I'm still bitter. LOL!

Best of the season to you and now that it's boxing day, have a grand recovery. (groan)
