Reindeer Treats

Hailey loves animals as much as I do so we always make sure we leave out Reindeer food for all of Santa's Reindeers besides the carrots we leave with Sant's cookies and milk.

In a bowl, add:

1/2 cup of Oats

1/2 cup of Cheerios

1 Tablespoon of colored sugar crystals

Pour in a baggie and sprinkle on your lawn on Christmas Eve or put in in a small pile outside someplace Santa's  Reindeer are sure to see it and snack on it.

Other things you can add: Edible glitter, crushed candy canes, raw carrot slices, raisins and nuts

This can also be given as gifts on Christmas Eve. Add this little poem we found on the internet:

Sprinkle on the lawn at night

The moon will make it sparkle bright

As Santa's reindeer fly and roam

This will guide them to your home.

Merry Christmas to all!

Care Packages

Our first two care packages went out today! We sent them via . We pick this organization because it will pass on the packages to soldiers who don't get much or even any packages or mail.
We did a seach for soldiers looking for soap and chose a group that had both men and woman in it and as a bonus they are also a K-9 unit. They are a frontline unit in Iraq.

We sent one package for a man and one package for a woman.
Both packages contain:

5-7 bars of soap ~ They each reieved one bar of the specialty bar made just for them called Apple Pie and it is Red, White and Blue

Lip Balms
Body and Facial Scrubs
Dog Toys and snacks
Toothbrush with a tube cover and paste
Disposable Razors

Woman's also included :
Journal and some pens
Facial clay
Lavender Body Powder

Shaving soap
Small first aid Kit

We were hoping to be able to send two boxes a month but realistically that isn’t going to happen as we just don’t have the funds to do it. So now we are shooting for three a month. We will send the Male/Female boxes as above and the next shipment will be full of snacks and dog treats.

As you are all aware, we could use a little help. We have set up a section where you can add a donation to your order. This of course is not mandatory and we will not think less of you if you can’t. But, if you can, please do.

We also want to be able to keep this going until our soldiers are home. We can't do it alone. Everyone who donates , we are going to add your name onto the letter , unless you specify not to.

Thank you all for your help and support in this project. We appreciate you, but the important thing is the soldiers appreciate you.
