Fun and Games!

Well last night was a blast!  Me and the gang hung out all night playing Candy Land!  What a great game!  All about candy... my favorite thing to eat!  Everyone played at least one game, but when you saw us, Cowboy was sitting out just watching.  We had lemon heads and whoppers and candy corn, yum! 

I see that my family has decorated their Christmas tree and I must say, they did a much better job than I did!  Nice work Holiday Mom & Dad!  And the dining room table looks nice too.  Like a cozy place to enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate! Tonight I think I'll just relax and enjoy a nice long marshmallow bath.  I hope you boys have a nice day at school.  Write back to me!

Decorating the tree!

I noticed that my host family has set their Christmas tree up but they have not yet decorated it.  I decided I would do them a favor and help them decorate it!  I think I did a pretty good job, but tell me what you think!
I had so much fun!  I don't think they will be keeping my decorations though since they'll probably need these underwear at some point!  Tonight I think I'm going to just hang out with the gang and play some games.  I really wish the boys I'm visiting would write to me.  They can just click on the word "comments" right down below this post and they can send me a message.  I really hope to hear from you guys!

I've Arrived

So, I finally arrived at my host family's home last night!  My two favorite children were nestled all snug in their.... TENT!???  They were in their tent sleeping in the middle of the living room floor.  What a fun idea!  Camping IN!  They are very clever little guys.  I didn't want to wake them by getting into too much mischief, so I just hung out, updated my blog, introduced myself to the family dog (Cooper is his name and he seems quite friendly!) and I fell asleep on top of the tent!  It was a long journey from the Pole and I was really very tired anyway.  Tonight is going to be much more exciting.  My things are being delivered by Elf Air tonight, so I'll have my bed and blanket and everything else I need.  I hope my family remembers to put me back in my bed each day so I can get a good night's (or day's) sleep.  It was a bit uncomfortable on top of that tent!

Well, I'm off to see what kind of fun I can have!

I'm back!

I'm so excited!  Tonight I'm leaving for the holiday season to visit my host family!  I'm going to be leaving in just a few hours.  Just finishing up a few things and saying my goodbyes to my friends and family.  My mom and dad sure do miss me when I'm gone, but they understand that it's an important job and they are proud of me.  I can't wait to get there and see my family again.

This year is especially exciting.  The Jolly Guy is allowing me to test a very special new project this holiday season.  While I'm visiting my host family in Ohio, I'll have a special way to get back to the North Pole each and every night to report to Santa.  I can't give out any more information right now, but it's going to be great!  Imagine... I can come back to the North Pole for a little while and file my reports about the children I'm visiting and be back to their house in no time at all to see what kind of mischief I can get into.  Plus, I'll have time to update my blog and maybe even post pictures about my visit while I'm back at the Pole!  And the children I'm visiting can write to me too!  This is going to be so much fun! 

Well, it's time for hot chocolate and then I'm off on my journey to Ohio!

Now that Thanksgiving is almost upon us, I am getting ready to bid safe travels to some of my most special friends. The elves are practically jumping up and down with excitement to visit their host families!

In only a few short nights, some of the elves will reunite with the families they know and love for the Christmas season.  They are ready to spend time with the children and have fun getting into all sorts of mischief
during their visits!  In fact a few elves have left already on their journey. 

If your elf doesn't come this week, don't you worry! Some elves still have to finish their jobs at the North Pole. All of them can't leave at the same time; otherwise, The Jolly Guy would not have enough toys ready for all the children!

I have gotten early notice that I will be returning to my host family in Ohio!  I can't wait to see my friends again.  Elf Laney, who left early this year to visit his host family, stopped by my Ohio family's house to see if they were getting decorations out yet, and guess what he saw?!  It appears that my host family got a dog since the last time I was there!  This will be interesting!  I just hope he is a friendly dog!  I'm still not sure what day exactly I will be able to leave the North Pole.  My elf training job is very important and I still have a few elves that have to graduate and receive their diplomas and passports in the next couple of days.

Time for hot chocolate... I hope I can sleep tonight since I am soooooo excited about going back to Ohio for the holidays!

Wow!! Are we really this close to Christmas? We must be because the elves have been in a flurry of movement the past few weeks. After wrapping up a fun Halloween at the North Pole, the elves are making sure everything is ready for the big night and are anxiously awaiting their departure from the North Pole to visit their host families.

I don't know where the elves find the time, but after breakfast with Mrs. Claus the other day, I arrived at the toy shop to find pumpkins and gourds decorating our snowy front steps! The elves sure do like to decorate for the holidays! I can't wait to see what they do for Christmas before they head to their host families' homes! Sometimes I think the elves practice their mischief at the North Pole in preparation for their visits to your homes! Just yesterday an elf covered the entire gift wrapping room with red and white stripped candy canes to surprise his friend for his birthday!

I haven't found out yet where I'll be spending December.  I have put in my request to visit the same family I stayed with last year.  Most elves return to the same home year after year so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  Plans are always final by Thanksgiving.
