Just Harriet

On a chilly, windy day, I took Pierce outside in hopes of taking a Christmas card photo.  I miss the days when bloggers could share their Christmas cards on their blog and get them free.  Last year, after spending over $50 for photo cards (and that was with a discount) I decided just to send normal cards and order some prints (this cost me a much more reasonable $10). 

Anyhow, when we were out trying to find the perfect shot, I got distracted by the 500 pound furball in our pasture.  The wind was blowing her crazy mane all over, and I have to believe she posed for this shot.  You know - she wouldn't make such a bad Christmas card, now that I think about it. 


Readers, have you sent out your Christmas cards yet?

We have our Christmas cards ready, but I need to put them in the mail. This is the worst part for me.

Your furball looks lovely out in that windy pasture. Good idea you had to buy the cards, and send the prints!

I have thought about sending out Christmas Cards, does that count? :)

That's a beautiful pony!

I have never sent Christmas cards to anyone. I think my children made cards for their grandparents when the kids were little and my wife sent the cards out.

Terra H. said...

I think that would make a beautiful card. That's a beautiful animal. I haven't made out my Christmas cards yet. I need to get on it.

Lin said...

Christmas cards ARE expensive, but that is sometimes the only time during the year we send a note to some of our friends...and I like getting photos of their families in return. I figure it is my once-a-year splurge.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I usually send a picture every other year since we are all grown up. I love the photo of Harriet, it's perfect and would make a beautiful card!
