Put in zip lock bag and attach the following note:
I woke up with such a scare when I heard Santa Call
"Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
I ran to the lawn and in the snow white drifts
those nasty reindeer left these "little gifts"
I got an old shovel and started to scoop
neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!"
But to throw them away, seemed such a a waste!
so I saved them, thinking- you might like a taste
As I finished my task, which took quite a while
Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky
"Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"
