Tracking Santa and Reindeer Food

Last year, my sister told me about a website that “tracks Santa” on Google Earth. It is a really cool website for kids and parents alike, as it really connects to the kid in all of us. We are tracking Santa this year so Sam wanted to make sure all of his gluten-free friends out there knew about this too! 😉

Track Santa on NORAD!

Sam also wanted to share the bag of Reindeer food that he brought home from school last week. We will be putting the food for Santa’s reindeer out on our front lawn tomorrow night, on Christmas Eve!

We doubted that these were gluten-free oats so we decided to err on the side of caution and make a fresh bag of our own using "safe" oats for celiacs!

If you want to do this for your gluten-free child but do not have GF oats on hand, just use any cereal or even Quinoa Flakes, add some glitter and toss (or place in a dish) in your front yard or on your front porch for Santa's Reindeer!

I would like to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who visits our blog and leaves comments, makes suggestions and so on. We really do think of you all as our friends, even if we have never met. I like to think of it as you and I sitting at the kitchen table, sipping a cup of coffee and sharing recipes and stories. The gluten-free lifestyle can be overwhelming and isolating (at least in the beginning) as we adjust to a new way of living. Being a part of our online gluten-free community has helped me and my family immensely, and I thank and appreciate each and every one of you for that.

We wish you all a very happy, healthy and (celiac) safe holiday! See you in 2010!


Heidi, Mike, Sam and Luke
