We’re now all safely back at the North Pole with Father Christmas and all our elf friends and family. We had a lovely Christmas with our family and can’t wait to return next year! Before we left our friend Gingerbread popped by and we made Christmas cupcakes with the children. We also had a treasure hunt with cinema tickets as the prize. On Christmas eve we left new Pyjamas out for the children and they wrote lovely goodbye messages to us in our journal and gave us lots of hugs before Father Christmas came to collect us as he delivered the presents. The children left some gingerbread biscuits out for Father Christmas and a cracker for Rudolf, don’t tell anyone, but Buddy ate one of the biscuits! As a parting gift we dressed the children’s cuddly toys up as honorary elves, and they were there to greet them on Christmas morning, sat on top of all the presents! Bye for now, see you all next year xx

Buddy loves telling jokes, some of them better than others! To surprise the children and make them laugh, he printed out lots of elf jokes on little pieces of paper and stuck them up all over the house. They were on the doors, walls, beds, chairs, TV, shower, bannister, washing machine, Christmas tree… Buddy even stuck one on his head! And when the children got to school they found a joke in their lunch boxes 😀

The elves have been out and about over the last week. Buddy stowed away in Big Mum’s college bag and spent the day in class with her and helping her with her work. Dottie McPockett turned up again, this time in Little E’s pocket on her birthday, and joined the family on a birthday day out. Then on another day, Dottie hid in Big Mum’s handbag and then popped her head out to watch Little E’s Christmas concert at school! She waved to Little E during the performance and made her smile lots 😀

Brrrrrrrrr, it’s been very cold and frosty here, but still no snow. Elves love snow, so we decided to make some of our own! We found a strange contraption in a drawer that punches tiny holes out of paper and thought it would make the most perfect little round snowflakes. The children were all asleep and we thought they would love to wake up to some snow, so we crept upstairs to their beds and sprinkled our pretend snow on their heads! Luckily they didn’t wake up, and thought it was funny when they woke up with snow in their hair and all over the beds! We also left a trail of snow all over their bedroom floors. Big mum wasn’t so happy when she had to tidy it all up!
Buddy and Bell thought it would be good to make some paper chains to decorate the children’s rooms. Unfortunately they just ended up chaining themselves together! The children soon rescued them and helped them finish off the paper chains 🙂
Bell had a fun morning when Little E took her to Nursery to introduce her to her teachers and friends, they all loved her! Later that night, she noticed that the top of the family’s Christmas tree was rather bare. Buddy helped her to make some paper fairy wings and attached them to her dress, so she was transformed into a Christmas fairy! She then climbed up the tree and perched on the top. It was rather high up there and she got a bit scared, but she couldn’t work out how to get down again! Luckily the children rescued her when they woke up.
While the children were all asleep, we rounded up some of their Christmas cuddly toys and had a game of Christmas Snap! We left the cards as a present for the children, but left them a message in our journal saying that they could only play if they didn’t argue. They are lovely children, but they do argue quite a bit, we will have to keep an eye on that!
We finally made it to our family’s home after a long journey from the North Pole. There is a big green near the house where Snowy and Dipper had a run around after travelling for so long. Unfortunately, when we got to the house, Bell realised she had lost her hat! Luckily Big Dad was out late that night, and when he came back he found Bell’s hat on his way home 🙂 We were very tired and so settled in our sleeping bags on the sofa until the children awoke. We had brought little chocolate gifts for them and left a message in our journal. The children were very excited to see us in the morning and gave us lots of cuddles. We helped the children put up their Christmas tree, and Princess B danced with Holly to Christmas music.
Bell’s lost her hat!
We’ve had lots of questions to our blog about our passports. We’ve now added a page where elves and their families can download our template to create their very own elf passports! Click on the ‘Elf Passports & More‘ tab at the top of the page, or follow the link here. We hope this is useful, elves love to be useful, it makes us even more jolly and cheery 😀
