Every year, dad tries to take a photo of us for his Christmas card. (It never turns out well – for him, or for us.) This year, he tried to keep things simple, but… well… you’ll see.
We don’t like being picked up and put in strange places, dad. Never you mind that we both have jumped up here at various points in the past, that doesn’t count!
As you can imagine, we don’t take dad’s direction on how to pose very well. Nobody wants to see your bum, Gus!
Dad’s attempts to “pose” us himself don’t work out too well.
While Gus tries to talk some sense into dad, I try to find a way off this chair.
I think Gus was starting to get into the “spirit” of things a little tiny bit. I, on the other hand, was getting tired of all this, and I let dad know by giving him a good disapproving stare.
Dad tried “posing” me, but he only has the 2 hands – he can’t pose us both at the same time!
I disapprove of this.
I really disapprove of this.
Trying a different angle, dad? It won’t work. Just give up.
Even Gus is getting tired of this by now.
Dad started to get desperate towards the end, and took overhead shots of us. Nice try, but no.
Zooming in doesn’t count as another try, dad. Maybe you’re just not cut out for this?
Can we get down now?
Eventually, after much flipping back and forth between these photos (and many more he took that didn’t turn out), dad and mum settled on this one for the Christmas card this year:
They put a nice festive red border around it and everything – it looks… OK, I guess. But definitely not worth all the hassle he put us through for it.
Well, that’s all for now – hope everybunny has a nice Christmas filled with cranberries, banana, and other treats!
