Goodbye to the Elf

Goodbye to the Elf

The girls were very sad to see that the Elf had left us this morning. They had asked if he could stay all year but we had to explain that the Elf was needed to help Father Christmas at the North Pole. The good news is that both girls made the Nice List! And he … Continue reading

Elf Escapades 23rd December

The Elf took a bit of finding this morning. The eagle eyes of the Little One caught sight of him first but she couldn’t get to him as he was stuck outside the door on the balcony! He was very cold so the girls tucked him up in a blanket and asked my Lovely Husband … Continue reading

Elf Escapades 22nd December

The Elf is obviously feeling very at home in Crested Butte. The cold, the snow and all the Christmas decorations remind him of the North Pole. This morning the girls found him at the very top of the newly decorated Christmas tree!

Elf Escapades 16th December

We all had a late night last night as we took some friends for a tour of the local Christmas lights and then they came back for a curry, whilst the children all played.  This meant the Elf didn’t have much time to prepare a treat for the girls who had been so well behaved. … Continue reading

The Elf had a fun night last night. The Big One came into our bed at 1am coughing and generally feel a bit unwell. Before she went back to sleep she was murmuring something about the Elf and toilet roll but she was asleep before she could tell me more.  When the Little One came … Continue reading
