Merry Christmas from Gracie & Ruby

It’s a tradition. Friends now ask in advance  if we’re doing a Ruby-Gracie card each year. Monday was our chosen day for the photo shoot, and was only slightly warmer than the Arctic weekend we had just survived. Earlier that day I was very inspired when I saw Fergus of Morning Bray Farm peering up and over the gate, looking dapper and handsome in his reindeer antlers. (If you haven’t visited, please visit the darling donkey bros over at Morning Bray!). So, back to Fergus… I thought, hey… this pose could be doable on a cold day. After only a mild little rodeo session, and Santa hats thrown off once or twice, we ended up with this.

We didn’t quite accomplish Fergus’ adorable flaring nostril look… but it will work.

{The girls send hugs and kisses to Fergus and all of his darling burro bros}

Happy Hee Haw Christmas to all!

We LOVE it!!! Gracie and Ruby look absolutely beautiful and very festive. And I think I just realized something new about donkeys... it appears that many of them have the same marking on their noses... that oh so very cute little dress pattern! :) Fergus and Nigel have it for sure... I'm going to have to look at Bernard and Ellsworth again...

Lots of love and warm holiday wishes to you and the girls from all of us at Morning Bray Farm.

Oooh, I love 'em :)
I laughed at the 'how many tries' description, only because I wondered myself, how long did it take you to get them to pose in those hats ...
Such a cute card, the girls did well :0

Oh Tammy, this is precious!!! I have been wanting to try Santa hats on my boys so if I copy the hats I will give you full credit. My jacks probably won’t keep them on very long but darn they are so cute. Great card!!
