We had a lot of fun with Pickle this month. Becker enjoyed finding him every day and telling him "good morning" and "good night." One afternoon in the car Becker said, "Pickle go back with Santa, Becker open presents." and I knew he understood the concept as explained in the book. We told Becker that Santa said he could give Pickle and good-bye hug and kiss and this was the one time it was alright to touch him. On Christmas Eve we said our good-byes to Pickle before Becker went to bed. In the week after Christmas Becker has mentioned that Pickle is at the North Pole with Santa and will be back next year. Here is a collage of our month with Pickle.
