A Question From Elle


Does this dress make my “bottom” look big?


Mommy & Daddy had the company Christmas party here at our house last night & they made me wear my new Christmas dress. I DID NOT LIKE IT! All that tulle & fluff following me around…


Daddy LOVED it & gave me lots of kisses so… I wore it & looked cute.


And I was wearing my red & green jingle bell collar too. I like that & so does Momma. She say’s she can hear where I’m at when I wear this. Let’s look at some of the holiday decor.


Remember the silver trees Momma bought in Canton? If you missed the post about that FABULOUS shop click HERE. Well, the old typewriter usually sits on that table but, Momma put it on the floor so she could put her new Winter Wishes Snowman up there. I LOVE to run by & grab a bite of that fluffy stuff as I rip through the living room…


This is Momma’s year off from having the “Big Christmas” here (she did “Big Thanksgiving”) so decorating is minimal.

She put a little tree on the kitchen counter because she loves the way the lights sparkle at night (it really makes that antique cut glass cider pitcher sparkle & shine). And a little gingerbread house up thee with the candy cane trees & poinsettia plant. Momma really LOVEs that funny little OLD GREEN JAR. It has old Christmas ornaments in it, a rusty lid & the word JOY on top. Daddy thinks Momma is crazy because she is always loving “Old” stuff.


A picture of Santa over the kitchen table makes it a happy room!

And then there is the BIG piece of furniture where Momma keeps a lot of her china & on top of that she put her favorite doll Noel. All dressed in her Christmas finery she sits on a vintage (OLD) sled. Go Here & Here to see the post back in 2009 when Momma got her.


Well, as you can see I’m given Momma the evil eye as it’s time to shed this dress. Hope you enjoyed the tour. And… don’t you think this dress makes my bottom look big? I hear Momma ask Daddy that all the time & IF he says yes, she takes it right off. Enjoy all the days of this special season.

HUGS! Charlene & Elle

Oh Elle, you look magnificent in your new holiday dress! I love the sequins! Mommy didn't get me sequins, but she made me put on this silly dress today. I think she is going to do it again tomorrow and make me hold still while she takes pictures. Yuk. Whats a tulle? Can you eat it? Licks and love, Maddie
