Today was the big day! It was Christmas Concert night at the North Pole. All the young elves were so excited to perform. Mrs. Claus and I had great seats right up front.
What a day this has been! My new sleigh was finally ready for a test flight.
Scunner and Professor FumbleBumble have been working hard getting it ready.
Oh Boy, I am very excited today. Let me tell you why.
Scunner came to see me this morning. He looks so funny in his white lab coat. It is too long and all you can see below it are his big feet.
‘Santa, we have a surprise for you.’ He said with excitement.
I am in such a good mood today, even more than usual!
As you know I am a jolly happy man but today I am extra jolly and happy. Would you like to know why?
Today was snow rowing day in the North Pole Olympics.
There are no lakes at the North Pole. It is too icy! The elves row on snow instead.
Did you know you can play tennis with a team mate? It’s called doubles. Four people play instead of two. It’s called mixed doubles when a man and a lady are team mates.
The rules are a little different In the North Pole Olympics. Mixed doubles means a reindeer and an elf are team mates!
Today is Day Five of the Reindeer Games Olympics. The big event today was the final of the Great Reindeer Relay Race.
Two teams were racing for the gold medal. Rudolph, Vixen, Prancer, and Dasher made one team. Donner, Blitzen, Comet, and Cupid made the other team.
Both teams really wanted to win!
The Reindeer Games are special this year. They are the Olympic Reindeer Games.
The reindeer want to be Christmas Olympic stars. The elves are going to join in too. They all saw the Olympics on TV!
Did you read about the monster in the workshop?
Well, I went to investigate and found out that the monster was not very scary at all. In fact it wasn’t even a monster.
With your great suggestions, I decided to try Scunner on another job.
I wanted him to double check the naughty and nice list. This is a VERY important job!
I made sure that he was in a room that had none of the things he was allergic to inside. I showed him the printer. I showed him the green pen for nice and the red pen for naughty.
You might remember Scunner did not do so well with the reindeer. I am still trying to find a new job for him here at the North Pole. Your ideas have been a great help.
Today was Scunner’s first day in his new job. He turned up at the stables at five in the morning wearing a pair of big work overalls.
The overalls were quite the sight. They had big candy cane straps and flying reindeer on them.
I could tell Scunner was excited to start his new job.
You might remember that I had a talk with poor old Scunner the Grumpy Elf. We found out that he might be allergic to Christmas. I was trying to think of a new job that he could do.
Well, thanks to your great suggestions I have been given plenty of ideas to try. I decided that perhaps he could help with the…
Do you remember how happy Scunner was over Halloween?
Well, he has gone back to his usual grumpy self and I was worried about him. I asked him into my office today.
After Scunner scaring us all day yesterday we went to his party last night. What a fun time we all had. I went dressed as The Easter Bunny.
What a scary day it has been in the North Pole!
It is Scunner’s Halloween party tonight and he has been VERY busy.
We have all breathed a big sigh of relief. Do you remember me talking about Scunner? Do you remember how he asked me for a tumshie? Well thankfully we have found out what he means.
Well, I can hardly believe that we are nearly at the end of October already. We have all been very busy getting everything ready. We want Christmas to go smoothly after all! Less than 60 sleeps to Christmas and Halloween is just around the corner!
We are all very excited here. Even Scunner seems to be very happy at the moment. I am not sure why.
Happy New Year!
Oh, let me tell you about last night. We had all decided to give Scunner the grumpy Scottish elf a lovely big surprise. A few weeks ago, Kissy told me that he was homesick and that this was making him grumpy.
Would you like to find out what how we surprised Scunner the Grumpy Elf?
