So, I would like everyone to know that I'm a big dork:
Last weekend I had photo xmas cards made up at Walgreens...Starring the infamous trio.

Does anyone else do this?  All of the cards but one have been sent out to friends and family as of yesterday.  (I wanted to keep one for myself)

Last Year's Christmas card was of the Sophie bunny lying on the tree skirt checking on a wire of lit colored lights. (Don't worry, I got the wire out of her mouth before she zapped herself but it was too cute to pass up). The way I look at it is this: if my college roomates and cousins can send me a gazillion phot christmas cards of their kids (who are so not as cute as my baby bunny) then i can send them a pic of my baby!
However, I went with the "normal" (aka boring) christmas cards this year. The photographer in me just wasn't active.

I would have done cards with our kids if we'd been actually organized!

I also didn't find any cute bunny cards to buy either.  My sister and I are using Snapfish to make a 2007 calender of our pets for my parents. :-) it's pretty neat since you can even add photos and text to dates.

Hareiette had a friend help her make this cute vitual Chanukah greeting though :-)

The people on alt-pets-rabbits do a big annual card exchange - including our international members - so I did a special card just for that.  The artist is a woman I know online from the livejournal bunnyowners group - she's an art student who does pet portraits to make money for art supplies.  I paid her a bit more than her going rate because I was very specific about the design elements I wanted.  I added the lettering and border, and printed them up on nice deckle-edged cardstock.

Cool!  I'd like to make a calendar too, but I already heard from  my brother (big mouth) that I'm getting a calendar for Xmas.

Oh, wow, Wendyski!  At first I didn't even realize that the bunny was a sketch!  It looks real!

Isn't it great!

The artist's name is Sara Martin.  If anyone wants her contact info, drop me a message  - she does great work.  She did the sketch from a couple of photos I e-mailed her.

here is some more of her work

Wow, great ideas!  Love everyone's images!   I have a funny Christmas picture that I took with my bunnies a few years ago at the House Rabbit Society in Richmond, ca.   They had a little sleigh that you could put your bunnies in.  SO cute.  It was a hard  copy though, so I have to scan it in to make it digital.

Well since I am agnostic (the "I don't know" belief)   I'd just have a big question mark on my card.   Not very exciting I"m afraid.    And I have no idea what my bunnies believe in.  They won't tell me. I"ll have to sneak in their pen  and read their diaries.

Another agnostic here, with leanings towards atheism, I like to stick to the secular "Season's Greetings" though I'm not opposed to saying "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hannukah" or "Happy Chrismukah"

AH Huh.  And so it is revealed, some of us actually watch the O.C.   I've actually missed quite a few since Narissa/Marissa? died.  and the last one had Ryan dating the girl that originally annoyed everyone.  What is going on?!!  Hey, has anyone seen the new show Ugly Betty?

Sorry to disappoint, not an OC watcher.  I don't know where I got it from originally but my use of Chrismukah predates the OC.  This year I expanded it a bit to Kwanzachrismukah.

.. there's always "Festivus for the rest of us" (Seinfeld fan here)

Actually, I'm quite happy it's NOT an OC refernece. I do not watch that show... I know about "chirsmukah" because of the commercials and because of everyone else's buzz. I think I tried to watch an episode during their first season.. but it was depressing because I could feel my brain cells die...

Yay Festivus! So you have the whole dinner tradition and stuff??

I've seen Ugly Betty, but only because it's on right before Grey's Anatomy. SERIOUSLY. Anyone watch Grey's?

Uh, oh well it looks like I've exposed my dead brain cell pile up.  My other job is in  broadcast. (though for the last year, I have been wiggling my way out into the things I enjoy more - After 13 years, I'm sick of it)  And most of the time I am so horribly sick of it I can't stand to watch TV, but when I do watch, I just don't want any brain cells to have to get up and move around.

 It's an embarrassing existence in television viewing. I lower my head full blown shame.  Oh, speaking of full blown embarrassing shame.  Anyone watch Desperate Housewives?

Aethist here; but we just like sending the cards out since we get so many. It makes family and friends smile

We don't watch any of those shows; just Family Guy, Simpsons, American Dad....Yes we are immature.

And when American Idol comes out, we'll probably be watching that.

For the more mature shows, we don't like to watch them as they air...Just netlfix whole seasons at a time...Sopranos, 24, etc....

.. not up to the full blown celebration yet, but family tradition always calls for the "airing of grievances"  Next year I'm thinking of getting a Festivus Pole:

Agnostic and Aetheist so bunnies are probably 'confused' but i don't think they care as long as they're food keeps appearing in the mornings x

Being in the good old Blightey we are usually about 3 years behind you guys with all that TV stuff, but we've just watched the latest series of X Factor, we only watch it to see Simon Cowell and his comments!  The Catherine Tate show is my fave at the mo  so funny.

dmh426 - Yes i have watched Greys Anatomy it was cool, i love things like that! but probably not the latest ones x

Yeah, but you're ahead of us in some of my faves: Dr Who and Top Gear.  My latest Brit export is Life on Mars.  It's one of the coolest concepts in ages.  Meanwhile my sister in the UK has seen more episodes of Grey's and some of our other shows.

The Sopranos  - I really liked the Sopranos, but I was confused with the final finale.   It didn't feel like the end.  Unless I watched the wrong episode.    Sex in the City was great - so sad that ended.  HBO has some great original series.    Oh, and Soul Food - the series.    But now those are all history, looking for another good series to get lost in.

you guys crack me up, lol! We're big fans of Lost & Desperate Housewives at my house.

We're a multi religion family as all three of our bunnies are different religions. Hareiette declared herself Jewish and who are we to argue with her? I grew up Jewish, but am pretty pagan these days.... Pandora is pagan as well. Viktor recently declared himself Agnostic.
