I thought I saw a Reindeer on Christmas Eve...at the bottom of our street. I took Clint, Derek, my nephews Garrett and Preston, their little sister Clare and my sis-in-law Shannon to investigate after Christmas Eve dinner. Come to find out, I mistook my neighbors fake lit-up reindeer for the real thing. Silly me.
When we returned home from our little investigation, we walked into a dark house. We walked up the stairs to find the Christmas Tree knocked over, the kitchen in shambles, the Christmas presents gone, and Jeff and his brother Scott tied up together in the kitchen, and gaged with duct tape!!!!
The boys quickly untied them and listened to them tell us about a guy in a black mask that came in and tied them up, took the presents, and left us a message on a DVD. (Check it out below)
We also found a wrapped package in the bottom of the costume box. Imagine that! There were four sheets of paper and 2 water color sets. Hmmmm. Our superheros discovered in no time that they needed to paint on the paper to reveal the next clue.
Something about "sun's" or "o's"...or maybe "un (minus the 's')"...or something about time of day....Day!!!!!! Day!!! Day's!!!!!! That's it!!! Day's house!!!! and cupboard...or fridge....Fridge at the Day's house...it must be in their fridge. They have one in the garage....
Next clue was in the fridge, in the garage...in a plate of red jello that the boys gladly ate to uncover the next clue...
and there was a picture of the Treehouse...In the Treehouse was a little bag full of Legos with letters written on them. When put together correctly spelled out "Clint's bed diaper???....no no no...."Clint's bed ladder. "
Under the ladder was a piece of paper with a blog address on it:
Clue Number 7 was revealed on the blog...check the fireplace, before Santa can see the nasty note Venom wrote to him. But we made sure to wish Venom a Merry Christmas on his blog first.
Up the Chimney we found a "go away Santa" note with a code and a clue on the back. Master Chief cracked the code in no time. The message? "In-The-Dryer..." Another clue???
Finally! Our presents! Hurray! Christmas is saved! Wow. What a night. I sure am glad a couple of Superheros showed up at our house on Christmas Eve!
