Joni and Alan generously invited me over to their home today for Christmas dinner with Alan's family. And four Border Collies. And a weenie. (Can you imagine if I had smuggled the Shibas in there? Hello, chaos! But the five dogs were well-behaved and had a blast.)
Joni was my second supervisor at Hallmark, nearly 14 years ago, when I was still painting in season kids' cards. We hit it off due to our love of animals, the outdoors, and artwork, and sometimes I think we might actually be related...
I brought the Santa hat & reindeer antlers that I picked up for the Hallmark photo shoot, and they were a big hit with the Borders. Joni and I both whipped out our cameras to catch the fun...
|Kayla rocked the antlers like she was born with 'em!|
|Lil' Asher finally acquiesced to wearing the hat. Good boy!|
|Happy Mr. Wager is 12 years old, but handsome as ever!|
|Little Snoopy is tuckered out! (Look at his cute back legs!)|
|Aww, the guys look tuckered out too. Chili coma! :)|
