In a One-Horse Open Sleigh!


Behind the Scenes of Our 2011 Christmas Card
Part II:

We eventually had to ask Sean to sacrifice his knees being scraped along the ground as we sailed onward, but we finally managed to snag the shot, and Sean's knees seemed no worse for the wear.








And, speaking of mullets (and we were, and you'd know it if you were paying any attention at ALL), there's this:

If you are not able to play this video straight from my blog, just click where it says, "Watch on Youtube."  It'll give you your mullet fix for the day, so you're going to want to be sure to click that extra click, dude.  Dude.
