Christmas Fun... It's Exhausting!

Did everyone have a wonderful Christmas break?  I know some of you (including one of the humans in the Lapdog household -- hint: it's not the one typing this post) are fortunate enough to be off of work until after the New Year.  Lucky ba$&^*#$

Christmas Eve was busier than usual this year.  I ended up working part of the day (we had a wonderful work luncheon), then headed home to take care of last minute details before the humans ran off to Connecticut for the evening (usual in-law Christmas Eve gathering).  After a late night, it was nice to wake up Christmas morning and not have to drive anywhere, as we hosted my parents at our house this year.  The Lapdogs were more than thrilled to have their Grammy & Grampy over for the day.

I sort of forget to take a lot of pictures of the humans (in my deference, there are some on my real camera that haven't been downloaded yet), but here's a look at the Lapdogs' Christmas day...

Santa didn't stuff the stockings this year, but they didn't seem to mind...

Santa was slightly lazy this year... Didn't wrap the dogs' toys, but they didn't seem to mind! #dogstagram #instadog #dogtoy #Christmas #GoDog #happydog #ilovemydogs

The Lapdogs were so excited about Grammy and Grampy being around that they didn't get in their usual afternoon snooze... This is what happened as soon as they left.

Grammy & Grampy just left... Can you tell? It was a wonderful day! #christmas #dogstagram #instadog #dobiemix #houndmix #rescued #adoptdontshop #dogtoy

While running a few errands the day after Christmas, I managed to not only pick up some gift bags and boxes at half-price, but also a couple of antler replacements.  I simply couldn't resist these elf ears.  May I present, Teutul the Christmas Elf...

We shopped for some antler replacements today... and present to you, Teutul the Christmas Elf! #dogstagram #instadog #rescued #coonhoundmix #ilovemydogs #Christmas #antlers #seniordog #ilovemyseniordog

I couldn't seem to find a normal set of antlers (okay, so what is normal when it comes to doggy antlers?), but in addition to the too-cute elf ears, I found these blingy ones.  They seem to suit the Princess just fine...
