Teddy's Tree

We went to cut down our Christmas tree Sunday. I had the carrier around my waist, but we helped Teddy walk as we looked for our perfect tree. At one point, we let go of his hands, and he took right off toward a tree. He reached out and touched it with a huge smile on his face.

We had 3 out of 4 looking for the photo. That's respectable.

As it turns out, that's the tree we got, partially because it was the tree Teddy chose. AJ helped cut down the tree, and we headed home. Thankfully, Teddy was willing to take a snooze while we did most of the decorating.

AJ loved the tree trimming experience!

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to give Teddy the opportunity to help decorate the tree because I think he'd love putting ornaments on the tree ... and then he'd pull them off ... and put them on ... and pull them off ... and somewhere in this process the tree would topple over. As long as it didn't maim or kill Teddy, he would think it's hilarious.

So we took the approach that it was best if Teddy didn't see us touching the tree and we instituted the "no touching" rule. (Oh, that's funny! Like Teddy follows rules!) On the bright side, we've made it 48 whole hours with the tree still standing.
