Busy saturday!

42 degrees is too cold for me! Do I have to get out of my comfy and warm bed, mom?
She made me do it!
I had my breakfast and then... we did lots of things...

First... we put on the door the Christmas Cards I have been receiving during the week. While we were doing that, the mailman came to deliver more cards. And one of them is his own card for me! He told my mom that he enjoys coming to my house to bring the cards you are sending me and that he wanted me to have his card on my door too!
This time he was not "my mean mailman"!

Then... I helped my grandma to make this ornament.
Nothing special. She just took all the Christmas things she have and put them on this table! (The money is not part of the decoration ... that is the money for the boy who brings the newspapers to my grandpa everyday, haa!)

Then... the new stockings!
But... they don't have our names! How is Santa going to know what to put into each one??
Hmmm... my mom needs to do something... soon.

Then... we wrapped some presents and we put them under the tree...

And then... after all that work...
Nope! I am not sleeping here...
I am keeping an eye on all those presents... making sure nobody steals them!

Have a good night

Stella said...

Your home looks beautiful, Lorenza!

I love that the mailman wanted to be part of all the fun, and that you are doing a good job guarding the gifts.

What a nice package you got in the next post, with the treats and the fun squeaky bone.


Bobby said...

Love all the decorations and yes you must keep an eye on those presents.
I wish it was 42 deg here its about- 7 now. My paws are freezing to the ground.

Teddy Bear said...

Brrrr, Lorenza. I hope you're staying warm. All those Christmas look so festive and pretty on your door. I'm so glad that the mean mailman turned out to be nice.

Good job, Lorenza -- somebody has to make sure your loot doesn't walk!

Happy Christmas dear Lorenza. It seems Santa has come sooner to your home. That means you've been a very good girl. We wish you the most beautiful season holidays.

Your house looks so nicely decorated Lorenza. I am glad that your mail man is getting nicer. I hope that some of those presents under the tree are for you.

Your friend,

Mango said...

I like the glowy decorations on the table. Most festive making.

My mailman lady loves me too. When PeeWee got a pressie in the mail she said, "what? nothing for Mango?"


Mack said...

Looks like the mean mailman has a bit of Christmas spirit this year!

I think we should have mailed your card sooner-I hope you get it before Christmas!



Hey lorenza
your the best santa helper.. he may recruit you to the north pole.. it's a bit colder there.


Frankie Furter said...

Guard duty in a pink sweater. Cute.
You will no doubt be paid well for that job. Your house looks so pretty and happy.
I am glad that the snow did not come to you. It is just horrible. I took lots of pics and put them on my blog... butt two leggers can't see anything butt WHITENESS. That's okay though beclaws that is all I can see too. Pooie Wooie. It is cold and WET. You wouldn't like it either. Not even in a pink sweater.

42F? That's a little cold for Mexico...we had a BIG snow storm here...about 10 inches of snow, but it is fun to roll in it. If you lived here, you would like it! Stay warm and tell your Mom to get you some nice fatty foods...chorizo? queso? pollo? Go hit the refrigerator and grab something good.

The Christmas present guardian's job is the most important. Nice work.

Bijou said...

H Lorenza,

You sure have lots of cards from your furiends. I wish my mom had let me send them cards. Maybe next year!

Your house looks very purdy with all the decorations. It won't be long now and Santa Paws will be here. Don't worry, he will know which stocking belongs to who! BOL

Good job guarding those presents! That is an over-looked, often thankless job. Good thing that you are on top of it all!

Dear Lorenza, I laugh so much with your phrase: "I am keeping an eye on all those presents... making sure nobody steals them!" LOL!

I enjoyed so much visiting your blog. I am glad I found you.
I wish you and your Mom's family a Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.
Flora sent a kiss to you.

Hi Lorenza!

You sure look cute and snug as a bug in rug in your pink sweater. I've been wearing my red and green striped sweater - even indoors! Haven't seen any packages come in yet for me... Hope Santa doesn't forget me on Thursday night!

Your pal,


Mochi and Mommy said...

Great job guarding those presents! :) I love all those Christmas decorations!

You have quite a collection of cards! :)


Agnes B Bullock said...

You should be getting lots of presents from Santa, because you have been working very hard this year.

Elizabeth said...

Dear Lorenza
your house looks nice
my mom and dad did not put the presents under the tree because they said I would eat them.
I would eat them
I like cardboard.
love from Buster

Sunny,Scooter,Shamus&Jamie said...

I don't blame you for wanting to stay under those covers! It has been too cold here too! Nice cards and nice pressies!

Oorvi said...

Those presents are looking lovely Lorenza...but that isn't surprising - is it? With those nimble paws you must've helped your talented mom with the decorations:)

That's 42 Fahrenheit...right?(obviously - 42 centigrade would be hot!)

Wow! That's cold. You probably have snow in Mexico.

Licks n wags,

ocmist said...
