Christmas started a love for Hazel of reindeer.  Maybe even more than bearlies.  She learned all the words to “Rudolf” and finds herself almost in tears when the other reindeer exclude him from games.


We have lots of deer that roam through our neighborhood, and anyone with antlers is “Prancer” (no red nose you see) and the others are mommas and baby girl reindeer.


We visited the carousel up near the ski mountain, and waited an extra turn to make sure she could ride on the deer.
