There was no way we could live up to last year's card, and to do a video card like this one would probably also require me to get a vasectomy and quit my job, so we present you with this year's holiday sparkler card:
As it says on the back:
The Good Doctor burned through about 25 sparklers getting each symbol exactly right, while family photographer Kiet Do again had to stretch his skills to figure out how to capture each sparkling emblem so it would have the right amount of flare.
Then we all jumped in for a group photo, holding sparklers to light up our faces, so that Kiet could later connect our sparklers to the symbols with the magic of Photoshop. Romeo's concerned micro-face in the zero of the 2013 is pretty classic. He actually looks like he's staring through a ring of fire.
Once again--no dogs were harmed in the making of this card. Only frozen for a short while before thawing in a nice hot car.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday full of merry cheer and lots of love. I know we have a lot to be grateful for, including the amazing supporters who come to this site. Thank you for sharing your comments and for finding humor in our shared experiences.
Here's to a wonderful 2014!
