Reindeer Cookies

Yesterday evening we made reindeer cookies to start off this Christmas season. Here's how to decorate them: First after you make the dough, you shape it into small triangle shapes on the baking sheet. Next, you get to get to put 2 pretzels in the top corners for the antlers. Next, you put two green M&M's on for the eyes. Then, you put the red  M&M on for Rudolph's red nose. Lastly,you put them in the oven for 10 to15 minutes. You can find the recipe  here Enjoy!

  Here are four facts that I learned about reindeer.   
  1. Both  male and female reindeer grow antlers.
  2. Reindeer typically have a lifespan of around 10 years.
  3. An adult reindeer can weigh up to 300 pounds.
  4.  Reindeer are good and strong swimmers.

Since you can't live on cookies we made Chili too.  My sister and I won third place at the 4-H Chili Bonanza  with this recipe last year. The 4-H Chili Bonanza is fundraiser for 4-H where you can take your chili and display your table. Then you serve a small bowl of your chili to the judge. After that you serve the extra chili to every one there.  This year instead of a chili bonanza they had a waffle supper. The chili recipe is                  here.
