(Sorry I'm late posting. I was out trying to round up a willing participant. :-) The parrot and the hat etc. is very real, the snow, thank goodness, is not. This was a rather long drawn out photo session. He loved all the attention and didn't mind the scrunchy I put around his neck, but he thought the hat was a game. Every time I put it on his head, he would shake it so it would fall off. I lost track of how many times I put it back on him. :-) He loved sitting on the Ho Ho Ho, so that wasn't a problem.
Lexi is all decked out to wish you a Merry Christmas!
