Merry Christmas

Well, that's it... another Christmas is already here and I'm already back at The Pole with the Jolly Guy. He came to pick me up and I was really sad to go. I went in and gave "C" and "T" and Holiday Mom & Dad a goodbye kiss, gave Cooper a good scratch behind his ears and gave Melanie a "meow" goodbye as well. I sure will miss them all so much. I left a family gift behind for them to open on Christmas Morning and I also left "C" and "T" some ornaments. This year in Ohio sure was a lot of fun. Of course, Rudy stays behind to keep a year-round eye on things and I'll drop in from time to time.

Keep up with your school work boys. Remember, good grades are important. Be good for your Mom & Dad... they sure love you both a lot. Be kind to one another... always. And remember to always be there for one another. I love you all very much and thank you for letting me come visit again this year. I hope you will let me come back next year. Have a holly, jolly Christmas (it really IS the best time of the year). Hugs, Kisses, and love to you all.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas 2014

'Twas the Night Before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring...
Except for me!

My last night in Ohio with my Holiday Family was spent, as usual, catching up on a good book, drinking some cocoa, and eating a snack. Just relaxing and enjoying my time here. We finally got caught up on toys at The Pole! Things are pretty much ready to go for the big night. I think there are a few thousand toys left to wrap, but that should be quick work for the Wrapping Dept. Then the Jolly Guy will be set and ready to roll for Christmas. It's such an exciting time!

I've been having so much fun around here. I slept under the Christmas tree one night. I love doing that. It's like sleeping under the stars... it's so beautiful. Have you ever spent time under the Christmas tree just looking up? If you haven't, I highly recommend it. I played hide and seek with Rudy. I hid in "T's" stocking. Rudy never found me! I had to stay there until my Holiday Family found me. I also camped out in the living room and roasted marshmallows. JUMBO MARSHMALLOWS! I could only eat part of one though because they were huge. I played Captain America with my friends.


I did annual movie night and watched all my favorites! Polar Express, Elf, Home Alone, Arthur Christmas... I love them all. My friends and I snuggled up with some delicious candy. I brought along a movie popcorn and candy bucket for my Holiday Family to enjoy when they do their Christmas movie night. One night, I slept in "T's" bed with him but Melanie came in and pushed me out of his bed so she could sleep there. So, I tried to sleep in "C's" bed, but he moves around a lot and after he rolled onto me and pinned me down for 20 minutes, I decided I should just stick to sleeping in my own sleigh bed. All in all, I've been having loads of fun.

I Love My Holiday Family

Well, I've been back in Ohio visiting my Holiday Family for the Christmas season and I've been having so much fun! It's been a very busy time for me though. I've been traveling back and forth between Ohio and The Pole EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. You see, a terrible flu has been going around the Toy Department for the last month (the very busiest time of the year for the Toy Department) and they have been very short-handed. Even my Dad was sick in bed for over a week! So, The Jolly Guy asked for all elves who are feeling well enough to help out... even those on special assignment like me. I'll do anything to help out and make sure all the boys and girls get something from their Christmas wish list. Speaking of Christmas wish lists, I would like to thank "C" for getting his letter written so I could get it to The Pole in plenty of time. And thank you to "T" for getting his letter done as well. I was beginning to get worried that "T's" letter wouldn't get to The Pole in time!

So, what have I been up to during my visit? Oh, LOTS! I have zip-lined through the house, eaten some very delicious pie and candy, raced around the house riding on the back of my pal Rudy, left some fun new wooden toys for "C" and "T", played tic-tac-toe on the mirror, used a Frisbee to sled down the stairs, decorated the Christmas tree with streamers, watched "C" play his viola in the Christmas concert (He was amazing), watched "T" perform in his Christmas concert (Way to go "T"... I loved all your dancing), and I even tried to go to school with "T" one morning! So, as you can see... I've been having a blast! Tonight, I'm going to have a fiesta... then a siesta! I love visiting my Holiday Family!
