Yesterday the FedEx guy showed up with the last of the gifts I had ordered. YEAH. I  spent the majority of the day doing laundry and wrapping presents. Of course Bruiser was such a help!

While Big Dude, was out on the porch enjoying the sun...

I did let him out of the fence when FedEx arrived and the guy said, "oh no.... death by dog kisses!" Yep, that is Mr. Ferocious!

Dinner was reruns and Hallmark movies.
All I know. Happy Christmas Eve Day. Nuff said. Ciao.
