This is how to ensure Father Christmas finds his way to your house, in Dismal Swamp.

I thought of you last evening….and this post. I was watching a program called “Xmas without China” about a family who accepted a challenge to spend the entire month of December without anything made in China (boo hoo, the dad of the family had to live 30 days without his Xbox….oh, wait, my silly computer was probably made in China).
Anyway what I was getting at; in an attempt to make new memories for their children they made ” magic reindeer food”. I think it was dog kibble with some kind of glittery stuff in it which the entire family sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas eve. They children went off to bed and the parents spent time outdoors making foot prints and hoof prints and cleaning up patches to make it look like it had been eaten. I’m sure some of the raccoons who life in our trees here would have been happy to help out.
No they did not show how they got that glittery stuff out of the lawn.
Happy Christmas everyone!
I wonder if that’s what was in the little pack I found? That’s a nice story.
It was a find on a lucky lurch around town. I trudged to the library, and spotted this on the nature strip. The Goddess of Serendipity was on my case yet again.

Lucky you! The Goddess of Serendipity totally rocks. Love her.
I think if I was seen sprinkling on the lawn at night I might get arrested.
The surgeon seems to have tinkered with your sense of humour while he had you in his clutches, Andrew.
I think a sign saying “Free” reindeer food might have a similar effect.
Like the one I seem to have on my door that says “free cat food”.
Cats can read, reindeer can’t, as I understand it, Michelle.
The thing is one of those cats wrote that message in invisible ink….at least I think it was ink.
This sounds like a good business in Dismal Swamp. How much did you pay for a bag Yvonne ? 😉 ❤
I’m selling the stuff, Ralphie, so I can get out of here! 🙂 oxo ❤
PS Is Little Liam at home now? His mom sure will be a busy woman.
I thought you were behind this Yvonne 😉
Yes. I saw the baby tonight ! So small and sweet ! Mom has had no or little sleep as she feeding the boy every two hours 😀
She looked tired in the photo on your blog, Ralph.
Yes I agree and she looked exhausted tonight 😦
Has Pedro any time off to take care of the other 2, and the house?
Yes. They are both busy.
Merry Christmas, Yvonne. Hope Santa finds you.
I’ve got a big flashing sign on the roof, Anneli, with “Here’s the place, Santa.” I hope it works!
Have a lovely Christmas.
😉 That should do it!
Hey there, Yvonne! Am here again. 🙂 It was 15 degrees c here today, so don’t think there’ll be too many special deliveries taking place. No snow in sight. Merry Christmas & all good wishes for 2015!! Love fr Liz x
Come to think of it, Santa has kangaroos pulling his sleigh in Australia. So, I hope they like reindeer food.
Merry Christmas, Liz, and a healthy New Year! ❤
Merry Xmas Yvonne! Lovely site. When they come to Austria maybe gingerbread cookies would be the answer? Hadn’t thought of Kangaroos but guess you have a good point! I don’t know why my name comes on twice – it’s too late, so will check it out tomorrow, sigh :).
It only showed up once, this time. Sleep well.
Oh yes, and I forgot about the Glühwein for when it does get cold!!
Very cute! 🙂 Happy Christmas to you!
And, a Ho, Ho, Ho to you Ms BerLinda. 🙂
I have to go see if there’s a new offering from you in the reader.
There is 🙂 Hoch fünf and happy Christmas again!
Hoch funf … do you have a stuffy nose??
Actually yes, but it’s nothing a little mulled wine won’t fix 🙂
It’s very nice of you to think about the reindeer, but the grass has stopped growing in my lawn.
However have a happy Christmas, Yvonne.
After an enthusiastic burst of rain 2 weeks ago which made the grass and weeds (especially the weeds) leap into action, the lawn-mowers have now fallen silent once again. 😦
I guess we’re in the grips of El Niño.
Anyhow, happy Christmas to you and yours.
I only saw it because I decided to trudge to the library, Darlene.
Is the excitement mounting in your little part of the world?
