Dixie's Christmas 2010:

Dixie was carefully prepped for her photo shoot.  Little Missy (aka 8-year-old Tatum), painted her nails, cleaned her ears and made her smell good before putting on her headband and setting her amongst the Christmas props.  And then Tatum took this precious photo herself.

You look beautiful, Dixie.

Great job, Tatum!  I think you need your own blog.

Merry Christmas, everybody.  I may be hit and miss on here for the next few days.

Love ya lots,

Dixie is very photogenic! And how fortunate for you that she cooperated. :) Wishing you and your best friend hubby (and your family) a wonderful, Merry Christmas!

Hi Lisa,

I can just imagine that poor girl being patiently pampered by Tatum ... it looks like she is trying to smile; I just thought it was so funny.

Dear Anonymous,

Thank you for leaving a comment! What kind of research paper are you working on?

Take care,

Merry Christmas, Kathy! I haven't visited in a while. I have to catch up on some of your posts. I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas!
P.S. Your dog looks cute! Not looking too happy having that thing on her head, but she looks cute! LOL!

Hi Gloria! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas. Actually, all I did was copy and paste this photo ... Dixie is April and Tatum's dog and Tatum took the picture herself. That is one reason why I love it so much ... Tatum is only 8 and she got it all figured out by herself.

Oh, Kathy. I just read your reply to my comment. I'm actually kind of speechless....what you said is so beautiful! Thank you!

No Copying!
