I love Sundays! They are the days that little one and I have fun with arts, crafts, and cooking! Today we baked some oatmeal cookies, and while the cookies were in the oven we started getting ready to make "Magic Reindeer Food". Magic Reindeer Food is a magical food that we'll be sprinkling on our yard on Christmas Eve to make sure the reindeer & Santa don't miss our house.
There are tons of blogs, and websites with instructions and recipes on how to make magic reindeer food. We found a super simple recipe on-line on Hip2Save's website.
We had the oats, the glitter (so they can sparkle during the night), and a special ingredient to add a twist to it (this was little one's idea): chocolate sprinkles! Yes, the kind you eat, and top your ice cream with. Of course, we're all in the Christmas spirit so we had our Santa hats on. I let little one mix, and stir to his heart's content.

I am truly enjoying this phase with my son, the magic and fun of Christmas! He's growing so fast, and soon enough he'll find out Santa, and the magic reindeer food isn't real. So in the meantime, we will enjoy every bit of excitement, wonder, and happiness this brings to our child.
