I mentioned a few weeks ago that we saw three deers (yes I know that the plural form is deer, but I like to say deers). in our backyard one night when I woke up in the middle of the night. Well, needless to say that got me overly excited and I decided to name them; Davide, Deliliah, and Dora Deer (cause of course their last name would be Deer)
The boys playing on the roof
About a week after the first encounter, Drew was playing on the roof with his BFF Brian. Brian's wife, Amy (my BFF) and I heard a ginormous animal rustling around in the woods. We were convinced it was a couger, but Drew was sure it was a buck, whatevs
Dinner for the Deers
Anyhow, after seeing my excitement Drew suggested that I feed the Deers in order to draw them out of the woods. I was game. Over the last week or so I have put squash, apple peels/cores, and the piece de resistance; apple crisp :) Now you're probably thinking WTH, why would she put apple crisp outside for deer? Well, I had an epic fail of an apple crisp (which is why I don't cook!) and it was, um, inedible... so rather than tossing it in the trash, I put it out for my buddies. Yes, I totally understand that by putting all this food out there I am encouraging other critters however, in my mind, the Deers get them first. I haven't seen my friends since that first night, but I've heard them several times as Drew and I have sat out on the deck with a deer call. Baby Dora makes the cutest little squeaking sound, ah-freaking-dorable! Hopefully my friends will venture out soon and not become victims to the overzealous hunters in the area.
