Blame it on the Cake

A couple of weeks ago hubby and I went shopping at our friendly one stop shopping center Walmart “and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature cake with a tiny reindeer. More rapid than eagles I flew to my cart, tore open my purse and gave out a shout, “My phone, my phone, I need to call home.” My fingers shook as I punched in the number and awoke my daughter who was in a slumber. A party, a party, is what we need and my dear daughter quite frankly agreed. To the front of the store I ran with great speed to buy that cake that was a beautiful Christmas green. Now dash away, dash away, dash away all, now we have to go shopping at the mall!”

Reindeer outfits had to be made, Gianna Reindeer is sporting Rudolph while Giavella Reindeer is sporting Clariece. I bought a panel of fabric for Gianna’s skirt it had directions on it to make a soft book, well as you can see I needed a skirt and not a book! Ta-Da, soft book turned into skirt.

rudy 8‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

rudy 10Mama in her ‘kerchief’ and pa in his cap,

had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap.rudy19rudy 11More rapid than eagles, his courses they came,

and he whistles and shouted and called them by name:

Now Dasher! Now Dancer!

Now Prancer and Vixen!

rudy 16And then, in a twinkling I heard on the roof the prancing

and pawing of each little hoof.    

rudy 6She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work.

rudy 2His eyes– how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

rudy 7He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot.


He had a broad face and a little round belly,

that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly.

rudy 19“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
