On the Ninth Day of Christmas…

We did our annual deer hunt.  Don’t worry – it wasn’t a real deer hunt – but a hunt for those crazy prelit deer on people’s lawns.  This is a tradition Matt and I have – I think it might be our 4th year out.  Last year – we hit 101 in an hour – tonight 108!  I guess Alex was our good luck charm 🙂  (It’s also a fun thing to do right before bed time – since the little ones can usually fall asleep pretty easily in the car)

So this is what we do:

  • We drive around and count all the prelit deer each deer – 1 point
  • Each prelit polar bear or animated deer – 2 points
  • Each prelit large moose or prelit funky duck – 3 points (we saw 2 moose and 1 duck)

Next year we have a new rule – if the deer is only half lit – then they are worth only half a point.  Get your deer fully lit people!

Wish we saw this herd – but I “borrowed” it online.

On the Eighth Day of Christmas…

My true love gave to me… Popcorn Balls!

One of the Robinson’s Christmas traditions is the making of popcorn balls.  Matt’s parents get all the grandkids together and let them go wild with popcorn and caramel.  This year, Alex got in on the fun.  I missed it because I was being pampered at the hair salon – but Matt caught a few good pics for you to enjoy.
