Saturday Photo Hunt and Award

Today's word for Saturday Photo Hunt (click here to see the list) is

DANCE


This picture was taken at Mom's 13th birthday party way back in the dark ages. They were doing a dance called The Twist
You can see Mom's leg and knee right there in the middle.  

Mom says I'm doing another popular dance of the 1960's 

The Stroll
Hugs Madi


I would like to thank my BFF Willow (click here to see
my beautiful Tortie friend) for this lovely award.

We are supposed to tell you two things about us you may not know:
Madi:  I am going to be a bridesmaid at a Doxie Wedding on December 31, 2012.  I'm excited too!!
Mom: Was a bridesmaid in 3 weddings and she is very happy to say that all three dresses were beautiful and the colors purrfect.

{This Moment} See Beautiful.....

Today Madi and I are participating in ....

...which is being hosted by our friend
Sugar who is living a Golden life in Maui, Hawaii.

I chose this picture of Madi for our 'Beautiful Moment',
because my heart absolutely melts each time I see Madi cover her eyes.  Is such a 'human' trait.  There must be a beautiful tiny 
human in there somewhere.
Hugs to my sweet girl
