Advent Calendar Dec. 8

Today was "Make reindeer food" day.  We needed an activity that was short because I had bells practice tonight at church.  That, coupled with the snow we got today, made it an even shorter time at home.  Darrin had to fly solo tonight on the activity. Every time he put Annaliese down, she would cry, so Ian would have to take the pictures. 

Reindeer food is a simple combo of oatmeal, sugar, and sugar crystal sprinkles that are spread outside on Christmas Eve for Santa's reindeer.  Ian first wanted to know how they'll get on the roof- we'll have to figure out something good for that.  We learned from yesterday's bird seed that they both needed to be able to make it, so they each had a separate container.

Apparently while he was making it tonight, Ian said something to the effect of, "Tomorrow can we do   something not involving a recipe?"  He doesn't have to worry about that, but there won't be a post tomorrow; the activity is an all-night thing...
