Christmas is in the Air
This is my all time favorite time of the year. Even with the added stress of having Hickman #4 I still love it. People seem to be a little nicer to each other. Families want to be together more. Santa is everywhere and when seen there is a super excited almost 2 year old!
Are we terrible parents for taking this picture and posting it for the world to see?
Back story: Hickman #5 (the dog) is a weird mutt. He likes to be under covers. He likes to wear warm clothes. Now, he is a short hair nervous dog and does not have an ounce of fat on his body, so I get that he wants to be warm. My family - mainly my sister and I - used to dress him up all the time because it was insane to us that this 45-50 pound dog liked to wear clothes. My dad found a Santa outfit for him one year for $5. This was in his toy basket and found.
She got so, so excited she wanted to wear it. "Tanta Coat, Tanta Coat!" So we put it on her. We were surprised it fit her. But the picture is just too cute to not share.
