Our Kids ... Where Has the Time Gone?

Feeding the Reindeer







What would the reindeer do every year if the Fox kids did not leave food for them to eat on their long journey Christmas Eve? Ever since our kids were little, they would climb up the ladder and go on the roof, to leave food for them. And every year ... you could always count on one of the kids having a hard time while doing it. There was the infamous year where Tavin had his melt-down ... or the fear of heights Kassie suffers each year ... but whatever the issues may be ... they persevere for the good of happy reindeers! This year it was Brittin who was wondering if it was worth the stress but she also concurred her fears and did the task at hand. I always wonder what our neighbors must think as kids are sitting up on our roof every Christmas Eve ... often among tears and shrieks of "I think I see a red nose!"
