Merry Christmas, friends!
Things have really started to sparkle with Christmas cheer here at the Dickerson residence. We've been listening to holiday tunes, watching our favorite festive movies, making Christmas dog treats, putting our tree up, and decorating our fireplace and hearth – I also added some firewood to make it look even cozier. Check me out, being all domestic! Bree Van de Kamp, look out.
Our favorite thing so far was taking Coco to the Mariemont tree lot to snap Christmas photos for our annual 'Bean themed' holiday cards. Seriously. I could not hold back the laughter this year. She was totally hamming it up, and the people walking by the square were getting such a kick out of it.
There was even one lady who was walking by talking on her phone, and said "oooh shut the front door" to her friend, put her friend on hold, and stood behind me clicking her fingers and calling out to Coco to look at the camera squealing, "ooooh good girrrl!!". So. Funny. She is just excellent at making friends.
She has come to tolerate the winter trooper hat. Last year she was not a fan of it. Hence the infamous 2013 Christmas photo. She has come to terms with it and has realized it protects her from the cold. Smart cookie.
The glasses... well we are working on it. She couldn't help but dish out a couple of honest facial expressions throughout the session. The stink eye below just might be my favorite.
Her photos turned out perfect for our Christmas cards. Classic Coco Bean. We had them made through Tiny Prints this year, along with our address labels + custom gift tags, and I couldn't love them more! These are my favorite cards we've ever had. I personally love the candy cane striped envelope liners, they add such a nice pop of color! I was so excited to get send these out to our friends and family.
It's just not a holiday without a Bean Christmas card!
Puppermint Dog Treats that we made for our neighbor + family dogs. These treats just might be Coco's favorite so far.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
