So, We're A Little Odd..

Posted by MANDI at 9:18 PM
I know, I know! As if you didn't know that already LOL.

Anyway, we have a few Christmas traditions. Some are fun, some are sweet, some are silly and one is just plain ewwwww. You know how most everyone leaves a snack for Santa? And lots of people leave a snack for the reindeer? And usually Santa's snack has been eaten and there is a plate of crumbs for the kids to discover in the morning? And sometimes the carrots will have been "chewed" up and some of it will have dropped in the yard? Well, ours goes just a step further than that. The reindeer leave evidence that they have been. That they stopped right outside our house, or in the case of this Christmas they stopped outside Nan and Pop's house. Yep. You guessed it. Our Christmas tradition is reindeer poo!





That was at 6.30 on Christmas morning. Offspring #1 is pointing to the skid marks that Santa's sleigh made as it stopped on the road while Offspring #2 is just amazed at all the poo!






Hmmm... can you tell this is a totally staged shot? LOL.


And finally, checking the skies to see if Santa is still around.

Aahhhh, you gotta love it (or just be really revolted - whatever works for you).

Not odd at all!! My dad used to do the same thing when we were little. Strange though how Santa always needed a bottle of scotch and a ham sandwich at our house...

LOL Chantalle. Santa really wants a beer and some peanuts (preferably cashews) when he visits us.

Thanks Iris!

Hi Melody. Just think how much Money would love it on your balcony. And we use llama poo - they don't smell!

Sorry Melody, of course I know your daughter's name is MONET! Darn fingers don't always go where they should and then I don't proofread properly!
