Santa Photo Countdown: Christmas Eve!

Here are the photos that didn't quite make the cut for the card this year...


Check back tomorrow for the photos that did make the cut! I'll be posting this year's Christmas cards (yes, plural. How could I do just one?)

Santa Photo Countdown: Day 6

The barking was not just for Santa... We were also treated to a serenade of Christmas carols by Stout!

Porter had a couple verses too.

Finally John had had enough!

Santa Photo Countdown: Day 5

Day 5. I think we could all use a break from the barking. I mean, singing.
So how do we keep Stout quiet?
We shove his mouth full of cookies.

Porter: "Did I hear crunching? Did he get a cookie? Do you want me to start barking?"

 Crisis averted - Porter also receives a cookie.

Santa Photo Countdown: Day 3

Ready for the chorus line? This time Porter will help sing the carols!


Never mind, it's still all Stout.

Santa Photo Countdown: Day 2

Yesterday we had a little sassiness from Porter. Today, we have a little singing from Stout!

I like to think that Stout & Santa are singing a particularly joyous (& loud) rendition of "Jingle Bells."

"Jingle bells! Porter smells!"

 Santa says - "You know I can hear you being naughty, right? Be nice to your brother!"

"Jingle bells! Santa smells!"

"Tee hee hee!"
"Oh what fun it is to ride..."

"What? I missed a line?"

"In a one horse open sleigh!"
Porter thinks they suck.

Santa Photo Countdown... Day 1

While not nearly as epic as Stout's infamous Santa photo, Porter did have an ill-timed camera-click of his own this year...
 "Ok Santa, I'm getting a little tired of the kisses."

"Seriously, I said NO MORE KISSES Santa!" 

I think Santa got the message.
Once again, while it looks scary, no Santas or Porters were harmed. Just one good bark from Porter as the camera clicked.
Although, looking at the photos now, Porter was clearly uncomfortable & I should have stopped the kisses sooner. I will be more cognizant of this in the future! Porter is getting crankier in his old age...
