The Christmas Photo

You know me.. I love holiday traditions! The year was 2007. We were newlyweds and had just moved into the house a few months earlier. Pete was working the night shift and I was enjoying some Christmas movies and having some wine when I came up with this idea to put Bela in antlers just like Max on the Grinch Who Stole Christmas! She did not want to participate but I managed to get her to pose long enough in front of the tree to get a picture(not a great one). She was 6 months old.
Year 2, Bela was not amused but if you dangle some cheese in front of her.......... clearly, she'll do anything :) 
Year 3 brought along the birth of Peter and for December of 2009 I had 2 year old Bela and 8 month old Peter. That year, I remember taking it while Pete got called into work  for a snowstorm to plow... at this point he didn't know I had even made Bela pose for the past 2 years, LOL!
2010 got a little harder! Peter decided he wanted to wear the antlers, so I put Bela in the Santa hat!
2011.. The birth of Jack in March only adds fun to the photo! However, do you know how hard it was to get all three looking at me!! Trying to make silly noises, ring a bell and tell Bela to stay all at the same time! I was sweating by the end of this photo shoot!! How many years will I be able to convince them all to pose!

Merry Christmas from the Wescott's!!!


  1. Love it! We're big on embarrassing our dogs too :)

  2. Love the pictures Jen! Bela's a trooper! When I see Jack all I think of is you and your Dad.
