According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year,male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.
Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.
Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

- My loving God
- My parents and two brothers who are four of my best friends in the entire world.
- My "sisters," aka my best friends. These girls have been with me through the best and worst times of my life and support me through everything.
- All three sides of my extended family. I am very close with each and every one of them.
- My job that I love.
- My wonderful roommate.
- The home I live in, the food I eat and all the other things in my life that I am so lucky to have and most of the time take for granted.
This is a very short list and I could go on and on. I am so lucky for the people and things in my life that make me who I am today. (Yes I know I'm cheesy)

Today Mom and I made an adventure down south. We decided to go to the Fort to experience our first Holiday Market together. Neither of us had ever gone to a so called "Holiday Market" so we thought it would be fun to try it out. For those of you who don't know, the Holiday Market is just a place where a bunch of stores/vendors get together and sell their merchandise. We were a little overwhelmed at first because there were over 50 booths for us to shop through, so we devised a plan: Scan the perimeter first then move into the interior booths.
So we started off shopping listening to delightful Holiday music over the loud speaker. There were some really neat things and some really, really strange things. We saw rocks withs wicks coming out of them, an indian headdress, full-lenght mink coats and a diamond bra. Then all of a sudden we are disturbed by this dreadful sound of somebody singing. We finally found the source. A couple was performing their children's show singing educational songs. The kids really seemed to enjoy them and I'm sure kindergarten teachers would like it to (right Bekah?) but to the rest of us it was just plan irritating. But we continued on....with mom reminding me "don't go outside the plan" and skip a booth or jump to the interior.
Mom and I ended up getting a couple of gifts and had a great time. We might have started a yearly holiday tradition. I would recommend testing out a Holiday Market if you ever get the chance.
Oklahoma now leads 52-7.
