My Christmas Beauty

I purchased this dress for Rae to wear for her dedication this past year, but I never had a chance to take photos of her in the dress. This past Christmas a local store I love perusing had a wonderful display in front of her store that included an old horse drawn sleigh.  I jumped at the chance to take pictures there and waited for a day that was warm enough. Ohio turned cold early. 

I think the pictures turned out great and showed her sassy side!
