Merry Christmas!

Ho Ho Ho! The time is drawing closer for the man in the red suit to make his appearance. We have the cookie makin's for Christmas Eve, the carrots are ready to put out for Rudolph and his crew, and we've made Sparkle oats for the reindeer so they have more power to finish out the night.

Our family will be here with us to set everything out for Santa in front of the fireplace, where we will be chimney-ready for our visitor.

For an added bonus, here is the recipe for Sparkle Oats

One cup of dry rolled oats
Sprinkle any color glitter (we like the multi-color) to your eye's satisfaction.
Mix all ingredients well and place into a bowl for reindeer. FYI the reindeer are messy eaters. We've found sparkle oats all over our front porch along with the green tops from the carrots. <grin>

I also want to share the links to a few of my friends books out this winter season. Happy Reading!

Wishing all y'all the very best Christmas ever and a blessed New Year,

Carra and family


  1. Great photo of you and Jerry. Never heard of Sparkle Oats before, but I'm sure glad you are providing extra fuel for Santa's reindeer. Don't want them to get too tired to come to our house.

  2. That's a neat idea, Cara. Reindeer Sparkle, who ever heard of thet? It's a great idea. Santa's reindeer have to eat to keep up their strength.
