#RoamingReindeerBlogTour and Giveaway --a new holiday tradition and gift idea!

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature and giveaway. However all opinions are honest and our own. The sponsor is fully responsible or prize fulfillment and shipping!)
Today is the 2nd day of no school for us --that can mean only one thing, we have snow and the boys will be fighting like crazy!  

Our boys' can be wild and it's getting hard for just one elf to keep an eye on the two of them. A few years back Santa sent "The Elf on the Shelf" to watch over them and to report on their behavior. Since we were in need of extra helpers this year Santa sent the Roaming Reindeer to us too!

 Meet Gus and Sam...

Gus and Sam are two of Santa's most important reindeer. They may look cute and cuddly, but their jobs go far beyond their looks. They've come into our home this holiday season to help the elf watch over the boys and to report on any naughty or nice behavior that they see.

Sam --Reindeer #1 is the spotter of naughty behavior. He will be busy flying to and from our home back to the North Pole to report what he sees. He gets sad when he see's someone being naughty and will disappear to tell Santa what they've been up to.

Gus --Reindeer #2 will never leave. He will be here at all times through the holiday's to keep an eye on the boys. He will be a fun reminder of nice behavior and good manners. If Sam's away reporting something naughty he will stick around to hopefully see an improvement and will tell him as soon as he returns.

This Christmas keepsake, Roaming Reindeer by Angela Meju is quickly becoming a new, family fun tradition. It's a great gift idea too! The touching tale is a great story to read with your children and the plush reindeer will be a constant reminder for them to be on their best behavior, practicing good manners! 

 Unlike the crazy elf that moves from place to place each night (talk about a lot of work and pressure on a parent to remember to move him!!), the Roaming Reindeer can simply stay stationary. The purpose is to remind kids that if there are 2 reindeer then their behavior must be good, but the minute one goes missing means that their behavior must have been naughty and one of them is reporting it to Santa.

Our elf "Taxi" and Gus and Sam will all be making their debut very soon. Arriving on Thanksgiving night I can't wait to continue one tradition and to add to the fun with these little guys! The boys' love their elf and I know that they will love Gus and Sam just as much. It's a fun way to keep them in line and to remind them that Santa is always watching so they better be good for goodness sakes!
