You know Comet, Cupid and Donner and...

...Blitzen but do you know Bojangles? Well, allow me to introduce you! Faithful and loyal readers of my blog meet Bojangles. Bojangles my faithful and loyal readers! Tonight I had to work at Celebration of Lights and aside from drinking enough hot chocolate to turn into a Hershey kiss and having my little toesies (not sure on the spelling of that) frozen off, I also got to meet Bojangles. He mainly hung out with Santa and Ms. Claus but he took a couple minutes to meet me. Once I told him about the blog, HE suggested we take a picture. He knows that Rudolph and the gang are busy practicing their take-offs and landings for Christmas so he's trying to get his name out to make appearances for them. He was very soft and a pretty sweet reindeer but he was getting a little cranky probably because he was so cold too! (Notice that I am wearing two scarves, I also had on long underwear, two pairs of socks, a hat, a hood and 4 shirt layers PLUS a coat and oh yeah, it was raining too!)
So first I got a Christmas tree today and then I got to meet a real reindeer so it really is beginning to be a lot like Christmas!

That must have been ridiculously cold, but so, so worth it to meet a real reindeer. When I was little, I'd make my mom leave out carrots and water for the reindeer because I thought it wasn't fair for Santa to get all the love with the cookies.

You met a reindeer?! How flippin' cool!

But isn't Bojangles the name of the mouse in the Green Mile? That's kinda sad. :(

That is so wonderful to meet a reindeer! I wonder which one was Rudolph!? Lol
