Merry Christmas 2010

 Merry Christmas from Dixie and Ricky...
Ricky and I have been busy around the farmhouse. We're almost finished with the renovation and decoration of the Guest Room. We decided to buy a Sleep Number bed for our guests, since we love the one we sleep on, so much! I purchased a wonderful yellow and white checked Angelo Home chair at CSN. I found an old Crystal Chandelier at Blue Hills Mall last year, and it's now ready to be installed for our guests. Of course we have guests coming for the Christmas Holiday to try out our new digs.
The stockings are hung and we're ready to celebrate... in this order... My Birthday 12/18, Our Wedding Anniversary 12/20, Christmas Day and Dinner at our house 12/25, and Ricky's 60th Birthday 12/26. For Ricky's celebration, we're having an authentic Cowboy Breakfast.. I'll try to post a few photos here after the event.
We wish you all the Happiest of Holidays... and though I'm not here often, you are always in my thoughts and prayers...
