Moose and Trains

Yesterday there was a moose browsing on the willow trees in our yard.  Awhile later I heard a dog barking so I opened my front door and there he was.  He trudged out to the street once the dogs left him.  My neighbor was skiing down the road and called to me to call our other neighbor up the road because she was about to ski down the road towards the moose.  Kind of like whisper down the lane now isn't it.
Yeah the little guy is not so little anymore.
I set up his new train for him to wake up to this morning.  Oh so exciting!  December birthday's are challenging.  I like the idea of a 1 gift birthday.   I hope to always make this day special and to not have it blend into all the other holidays.
I do love this time of year.  I have to admit the Solstice is my favorite day of the year.  Welcoming back the sun can never come to soon for me.


  1. There is a long running joke in my family that moose do not exist (to my husband who has never seen one)...that they are mythical creatures like unicorns.

  2. Ha! That is funny! Tell your husband that I have been chased by a moose and I know for sure that they do exist.

  3. Growing up they used to hang out at the softball field and occasionally in the downtown

  4. I would love to see moose!
    One of my Monkeys also has a birthday around Christmas. I definitely try and make it extra special.
