Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer

Last week one of Louie's spelling words was "reindeer". Appropriate, don't you think? Anyway...he missed it and spelled it "raindeer" instead. Ahhhhh, phonics!

I'm digging my mad photo skills! Anyway, I pinched the folds together and then cut it up into little pieces. Here's what I got:
