Every year we attempt to get a family shot in front of our tree with the boys dressed up in Christmas gear and the cats in hand. This year has proved to be hardest yet. The end result was not the picture perfect image I had in my mind when thinking about how I wanted it to look but it sure was fun trying. Here are a couple of shots that didn't make the final cut but they are probably the best two of the lot! Previous to this the cats had been placed a little too close together and while they get on quite well fur to fur contact is rarely tolerated. One had started to bat the other with it's paw and hiss. Time to drop and regroup! but Jakey thought it was hilarious!
