I can't believe it! I have a blog! I'm so excited! Allow me to introduce myself... my name is Oliver Bojingles (Ollie for short) and I am a North Pole elf. That's right, straight from Santa's place. There are LOTS of us elves, but I am a special elf because I get to go on special missions during the holiday season. I get to go visit families and make sure everything is going according to schedule for The Jolly Guy's arrival (and maybe I get into a little mischief of my own every once in a while.) Last year I visited a very special family in Ohio. They have 2 children, both are boys. We'll call them "C" & "T" (because this is the internet and you can never be too careful when online). They were really great! I had such a blast at their house and I was very sad to go. But, my job for the season was done and I really was excited to get back to the Pole with my friends and family. Now we're just 3 months away from The Big Night and I'm so excited! Because I did such a great job last year with "C" & "T", I was allowed to help train the new recruits for this holiday season! What an honor! I am having so much fun teaching the new guys how to do things when their out in the field! I'm also excited because I just found out today that I'll be going back out in the field this year to visit a family! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be reassigned to "C" & "T" since I already know them and their house very well. Well, I should go. It's time for us to have our nightly hot chocolate and my mom made candy cane pie for snack... YUM!!
