All four of us were folding laundry in the bedroom yesterday when we looked out the window and saw these girls;
There are four of them...I think two were very young. In fact, we usually have one or two deer pretty close by in the yard. But we hadn't seen them for about a month. Our yard is attached to a 1000 acre park that seems to be FULL of animals! I worry that the deer will be hunted, especially this time of year.
They are pretty tame. We were able to go outside and almost coax this little one over to eat a carrot. We were able to watch for a good half hour.
While they were cleaning eachother up Hazel declared that they must be Santa's reindeer. And I thought to myself, "aahh this is the perfect night for an elf to show up on our front porch."
We are so excited for Christmas time now!
