Reindeer Play

DSCN1361

Went shopping for a blanket and board game this afternoon with Yumi and Michelle, and we came home instead with some wine, cheese and 9 reindeer hats!  Above is the product of a few extra minutes of converting 8 Rudolph’s to “Other Reindeer.”  Gotta love at-home arts-and-crafts time with the gals.  Yes… we’re 24!  Tomorrow night we’ll get the gang together and I’ll hopefully have a post displaying our collective Halloween (AND Christmas…hey!) spirit.  : )
