My daughter, Camille, and her girls, made some reindeer food for Santa's hard-working team.
In a clear gift bag, put 2 cups of rolled oats. Generously add some red and green sprinkles
Attach this poem to the bag:
Take this magic reindeer food and sprinkle on the lawn.
On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and sugar path will guide them on their way.
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas day!
Take these around to your neighbors so Santa's reindeer will be sure to visit your neighborhood!
Speaking of neighbor gifts, my daughter, Jill, made this adorable neighbor gift when she visited Thanksgiving Point. She explains how to make it so much better than I can.
As you can see, it's a tin can, with pebbles in the bottom, soil, and a flower bulb. Add a piece of burlap and some greenery. Since I tended her children while she visited Thanksgiving Point, she decided that I would be her neighbor! I took the cute flower container home, watered it and loved it.
It bloomed into a beautiful flower!
However, it smells like cat urine! Not a pleasant smell! (That's an understatement)
Now, for all of you botanical experts, what kind of flower is this? Wouldn't a daffodil bulb bloom just as well?
One more day left until Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all of you!
