Rudolph the grubby hoofed reindeer

Imagine the squeals when we descended on Christmas morning to find this scene in the kitchen. Dirty hoofprints. Blown leaves.


A pile of oats on the floor.



And an upset box on the counter with an incriminating foot mark.



Turns out Rudolph enjoyed his reindeer food (oats & glitter on the lawn) so much he came in through the keyhole to find some more - Father Christmas needs to tether him more securely next time!

Fortunately he didn't get his grubby little hooves on these. Yum.


Hope your Christmas has been, and continues to be, everything you hoped for!

  1. Coo - what a naughty Rudolph! :-O You'd have thought he'd have at least wiped his trotters before ransacking the oats in your kitchen.

    I'm sure you have created simply wonderful memories.

    Happy New Year to you all. x

  2. Those ill-mannered reindeer! They just don't make 'em like they used to back in Donner and Blitzen's day. Thank goodness the sweet treats were untouched!!

  15. Aha, I spy a Nigella number (or rather quite a few tiny ones). Were they good?

    Excellent reindeer subterfuge there. We did a couple of 'magic snow' (ie flour) footprints on the hearth - FC's of course.

    Glad the cufflinks went down well.

  19. Oh - yours looks so authentic !!

    I googled what a deer print looked like, then made a stamp to press in glue and sprinkle with gold glitter on the 'tahnkyou' letter from Santa.

    Lucky the boy was too excited about the new tramp to even notice or ASK what the hell that thing was.

    Because it looked like a glittery gold vagina.

    No, I did not take a pic :/
