I was a little concerned with how Brodie would react with all the decorations. But he's been awesome. Other than stealing one ornament from the tree and trying to walk off with the tree skirt, he's not even paid attention to it. When we were decorating I did give him a big jingle bell to play with, thinking maybe if he had a new toy he would leave the others alone. He's so cute with it - he carries it in his mouth by the string, jingling as he walks, and loves chasing it when I toss it.
Of course, no trip home for Thanksgiving is complete without decorating Mom's house. Mom and I literally spend hours on the tree alone - fluffing, pulling out all the ornaments, and finding the perfect spot for every single one. It's a work of art, let me tell you! But it always turns out so well! We were really pleased this year.
