The morning after Thanksgiving, Emma went into the kitchen and noticed that the words "I'm Back" were spelled out in M&M's on the picture she had drawn the previous day. As soon as she saw that, she knew that Doodle was back and the hunt was on to find him. Turns out he was laying on top of the doorbell in the hallway and had changed the tune to a Christmas song. Tricky little Elf!
Since Thanksgiving was officially over, it was time to get the house decorated for Christmas and we definitely had two good helpers after an initial lecture about calming down and having a little patience.
