Here are a few proofs for this year's holiday photo. I've taken the liberty of selecting the first photo as our official Holiday Portrait, though the others are also quite nice. After the first photo, we hit the road and took to the skies to meticulously replicate this same photos at iconic locales around the globe.

Our annual holiday photo is always a good time, and this year was even better by taking it on the road. It was hard getting two dogs and that bench through customs, but in the end it was totally worth it.
And in case your missed it...
