Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

There are no words to express the shock and sorrow I feel about the tragedy in Connecticut. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved. In the meantime, I will march forward, the only way I know how. Writing about simple every day things.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
or How to Make an Easy and Silly Christmas Ornament

When Wally and Theo were little, they made these Rudolph ornaments at a friend's house. We still have several of them many years later. They were easy to make and had just the right difficulty level for two little boys who would rather be running than sitting still for very long to make anything.

They started with a wrapped candy cane and glued two googly eyes and a red pompon on the end of it. They then wrapped a pipe cleaner around the top and twisted it for antlers. Voila! A Rudolph ready to hang on the tree.
