I decorated the house, and we're all set for Christmas! James was nice enough to carry all of the heavy decoration boxes up from the basement, so all I had to do was unpack them and put things out.
Our little puppy is growing up - Max hasn't tried to eat the tree OR the presents this year! (I still had to put all of his out of reach b/c he knew that they were his, so he did try to eat them...) Here are some pictures!
