But don't peek at Steve's paper, Leeanne, get your own like Ruby does!

Jake will now guard the tree from those cats who would run off with the decorations.

This is also referred to the fox guarding the hen house.

Linda entrusted the adding ribbons and bows in attractive colors

As we all laid down for a warm winter's sleep Pokey guarded the presents (and boxes) from those who would touch them

 We slept in the comfort that the gifts were protected and then it was time for:

Christmas Day

After Christmas Carolyn came over and got her favorite suit from Chris.
