Ginger And Nutmeg! – Week One

We all know that 2020 has been a horrendous year.  The granddaughters wanted to take another trip up north to hopefully see snow this time.  But, alas, that just isn’t gonna happen.

But all is not lost.  Our ever spicy err… trusty Scout elf Ginger has returned!  This year she has a little brother Scout elf.  His name is Nutmeg.  We are never at a loss for spices in this house.  We call him Nutty.  I hope he doesn’t take that nickname to heart.  We don’t need any repeats of Ginger’s antics.

For my new readers (there are new readers, right??), we only have the granddaughters from Friday afternoon to Monday evening. So Ginger, and now Nutty too, have most of the week to play around. I just take the pictures of whatever hi-jinks they get into to show the girls when they arrive at our home.

As per the contract with Santa*, they arrived on December 1st.  And following the CDC recommendations, they even had masks.  Santa may be immune to Covid, but the elves aren’t too sure about it.  I think that Dr. Fauci said that the North Pole was high on the list to get the vaccine quickly.  But maybe I misheard that…

The arrived on Tuesday.

The girls love playing “Bananagrams”.  It’s a fun vocabulary building game.  I personally suck at it, but if it’s just me and the girls, I have a chance to at least not come in 4th, out of 3 players. We found them Wednesday morning in the middle of a game.

Well, it started out good, but by Thursday it seems that Ginger may be a bad influence on Nutty.

Well, it is the truth!

Wifey has been reading the girls the Nevermoor series, featuring Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend.  They have really enjoyed these books.  The third book was released just recently, but we have been unable to find it in paperback.  Seems Ginger and Nutty were listening and brought the girls a hardcover book! They hid rather well on Friday!

They were hiding out in the china cabinet with the book!

Saturday finds them selling Christmas trees. I guess they don’t like that we have an artificial tree. While their trees may taste better, they wouldn’t hold many ornaments.

Wow!! A Christmas tree farm on my dining room table!

And that ends week one. See you next week to see just what these two spice heads have up their sleeves!

Peace,
B

*Santa’s contract for homes with Scout Elves is very complicated. Basically it says “They’re your’s now!”

Ginger Finishes – 2019

It’s the last week for our mischievous little elf, Ginger.

Sunday evening found her opening the little gift the girls had for her.

How many other elves get gifts?

She didn’t waste anytime getting things going for her last couple of days. Since the girls stayed with us Sunday night, she was ready for them on Monday Morning.

And since the girls are on their winter break from school, they’ll be staying with us a bit longer. And rumor has it that Ginger will be able to stay until Christmas morning this year! Seems she has some special gifts to pass out!

YES!!! Ginger was here bright and early Christmas morning. It seems that Santa brought granddaughter-the-younger a Malibu Barbie Dreamhouse! I think Wifey is a bit jealous. She didn’t get a Barbie Dreamhouse when she was a kid! Ginger had to build it for the girls after Santa just left it in the box.

Ginger also set out all the family stockings for us.

Then Ginger suddenly reappeared with two more gifts for the girls. Where does she get her money???

And then, just like magic, she was gone. No note, no goodbye, she just magicked herself back to the north pole.

I wonder what tricks she has planned for us next year. We heard some rumors that she’s been accepted into the trainer program at the North Pole. We’ll have to see.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this years adventures with Ginger.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate from the Campbell family to you and yours.

Peace,

Ginger Week Three – 2019

It’s close to Ginger leaving us for the year, but she still has a trick or two up her sleeve.

The girls had a sleep-over on Friday night, so Ginger had another lazy day. But come Saturday, she was waiting for the girls.

She knows we’re going to the mountains right after Christmas. So she showing the proper form for a downhill run on a saucer sled.

Ugh… more terrible jokes.

Why do elves make good listeners?
What do you call an elf that sings?

On a rainy, dreary day Ginger got the munchies.

The gingerbread house seemed to be a bit stale.

And since the girls are on their winter break from school, they’ll be staying with us a bit longer. And rumor has it that Ginger will be able to stay until Christmas morning this year! Seems she has some special gifts to pass out! But that will be another post.

Peace,
B
