Ginger And Nutmeg! – Week Three

It’s week three with these crazy elves! We left Ginger and Nutty after they tried their hand at bungy jumping into the Christmas village on Friday. Saturday we saw that poor Nutty was in a wheelchair from an injury from that ill planned event.

Sunday morning, find Nutty still in the wheelchair, but he’s ever the trooper and is helping Ginger build snowmen with doughnuts.

I hope Santa can heal poor Nutty quickly!

Things got a bit… personal Monday morning. It would appear that I was the object of the “trix” that the elves played.

I feel honored, they painted my toenails while I was sleeping! Not very neatly though…

I guess since they tried to go with Taco Tuesday last week, the elves decided to play games this week. Pin The Nose On Rudolph!

Is this what they mean by “Reindeer Games”?

Wednesday caught me by surprise. I spend a lot of time, and I do mean A LOT of time working on my family tree. In fact, I even have a blog about my genealogy (the link is down below). So it would seem that Ginger and Nutty have been watching me. No, that’s creepy at all!

Think I need to change some passwords.

And what do big sisters do to little brothers when they’re sleeping? Why put makeup on them, of course! Anybody hear Gilligan saying “You can’t make me, you can’t make me” in their head right now?

Something tells me that Nutty is not going to be happy about this.

I’m not one to say “I told you so”, but I did mention that Nutty would not be happy about getting hurt bungy jumping into the village nor when Ginger made his face up. It would seem that Nutty got together with the Lego characters to give Ginger the “Gulliver” treatment. Too obscure?

Long live the Lilliputians!!

Finally on Saturday, the elves decided to play games, just by themselves this time. Kit-Kat Jenga FTW!!

No worries, I’ll eat the evidence!

And thus ends week three. There ain’t no telling just what these naughty elves will be up to next week. See you next Saturday, same elf time, same elf channel!

Ginger And Nutmeg! – Week Two

Week two began as they always seem to begin when elves are involved. You just know that something really odd is going to happen. But first, let’s finish last week.

We have been watching “The Santa Clause” movies with Tim Allen. I had only seen the first movie of the three, and as one who really doesn’t care for Christmas movies, I thought they were a bit cute.

The humans had popcorn as well, but we didn’t have such comfortable seating.

Before we started the movie, we sent the girls to get dressed for bed. But granddaughter-the-younger called out that she couldn’t change in her room. When we asked why not she said “Because there’s a boy in my room!”. Seems the little rascals needed a nap!

Then, Sunday starts off in a picture perfect manner!

They said they wanted the girls to have their picture for when they go back to the North Pole.

Then they just hung out in a couple of the stockings for the rest of the day. Just watching. Kinda cute, but more creepy I think.

Monday morning and they’re wearing masks. I guess they like to play Mine Craft at the North Pole. The girls like to play the game too.

Is it just me or does Santa look a little, I don’t know, blocky maybe?

We all know Tuesday is for. Seems Taco Tuesday is a thing at the North Pole as well. But wouldn’t this be cannibalism?

Not sure about the ingredients in these supposed “tacos”.

Guess that tacos are very filling to little elves. So on Wednesday it was time for a workout. I like how Batgirl is just watching. She seems rather buff to me!

Maybe she’s just coaching, but it seems she’s laughing to me.

Sometimes I wonder how they do the things they do. How did they get the reindeer and sleighs off the china cabinet and into the hallway? And the tape for the finish line?

I think Ginger will win this one!

And now, on Friday – I mean, what are they thinking?? I better go check the bar and see if they’ve been drinking my whisky!

Bungy jumping? No good can come of this!

As I said, no good came of the bungy jumping. Poor Nutty! Ginger is not a very sweet elf.

Good thing we had a doll sized wheelchair for Nutty! At least Ginger was nice enough to get their TV out to relax and watch a show.

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

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,

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