The Return Of Ginger – 2018

Our sweet little, mischievous, elf has returned!  The jury is still out on whether on not this is a good thing.  Just as last year (here, here, and here), I will post weekly updates. We still have the girls weekends only, so I expect Ginger to do some silly stuff again this year.

Elf on the shelf in the christmas tree with a welcome letter.
Ginger returned Saturday, with a letter for the girls.

The girls think that Ginger put herself high upon the tree to keep away from our new dog. 

Elf on the shelf in a plastic tub with peppermint oil.
On Sunday, Ginger somehow got herself into a plastic tub, then farted. The note asks if you want to smell it.

Granddaughter-the-younger was first up that morning and was brave enough to open the tub and smell.  “She must have eaten too many candy canes!”.  Later the girls were practically shoving their dad’s face into the canister “Smell it!  Smell it!!” 

 

Elf on the shelf cutting out paper snowflakes and taping them to a french door.
Monday – Ginger used the computer chair to decorate the doors with hand made snowflakes.
Elf on the shelf in an igloo with other friends.
Tuesday Ginger was having a Igloo warming party. Kinda think that “igloo warming” sounds a bit counterproductive.
Elf on the shelf sitting in front of a Charlie Brown nativity scene, placing rhinestones on her outfit.
Wednesday – She’s all Bedazzled! 
Elf on the shelf with a finished Harry Potter Lego set.
On Friday, Ginger finished the Lego set for us!

Once again, Ginger The Elf has shown just what happens when a little elf gets bored. But she can also be helpful!

Elf on the shelf brought us a star for the top of our Christmas tree.
How sweet!

Got any silly elves at your place??  Check back next week to see what Ginger is up to!

Gynger Makes Her Debut

It seems our little Elf had a bit of mischief just before she left us on Christmas Eve. We kept these pictures from the girls.  Maybe when they’re old enough, we’ll show them.

I thought Elves drank maple syrup? Don’t think she knew that that’s a jar of ‘shine from North Carolina. The apples and cinnamon stick must have confused her. And on our ancestor altar too!

The liquor really got her into the mood..

She tried a little “pole dancing”. She said it was “for exercise”, but I fail to understand what taking the skirt off had to do with exercise.

 

1223172229.jpg

And, as usual, She ended up “praying to the porcelain god”. Happens to the best of us!

 

 

Ginger The Elf – The Last Week

This is our last week with Ginger. She will return home to the North Pole (a.k.a The Shed) on Sunday the 24th.  I hope she gets a good employee evaluation from the Head Elf, or Santa or whoever.

Here’s what she’s been up to this week;

 

1216172217a.jpg

Quite the engineer she is!

 

1217171831.jpg

I guess this is a game of “tag”? The Gingerbread man got caught.

 

1217171820i.jpg

Let it snow baby!

 

1217171842.jpg

Just how many pieces of bubblegum did it take to get a bubble that big?

 

1220171856.jpg

It’s a nice thought to welcome the girls back (how did she know they would be with us a day early?), but those post-its ain’t cheap!

In case you can’t read her note it says “I brought you a snowman from the North Pole”. But this is Florida and it melted. Silly elf!

 

Caught her with some popcorn watching “Christmas Vacation”. At least she has good taste in Christmas movies.

On her last day, she tried to make breakfast for the girls. She needed a little help. The note says, “I brought you breakfast. Daddy needs cooking, can you help?”.  I did the bacon, daddy did the chocolate chip pancakes. 

So Ginger goes off to the North Pole until next year. We hope she didn’t do anything to get into trouble with Santa so she comes back next year. We’d hate to have to train another Elf all over again!

 

Peace,

Ginger The Elf, Week 2

This is Ginger, our apprentice Elf’s second week with us. Let’s see what she’s been up to over the week.

 

1209171935.jpg

Saturday found her hiding out in our Celtic water pitcher.

 

 

1209172251.jpg

Sunday she decided to make snowflakes with Q-tips. Those things cost money ya know! 

 

1212172034.jpg

She put on a fashion show, first the red skirt.

1212172035.jpg

Then the blue skirt. All on the top of the cat condo. A “catwalk”?

 

1212171956.jpg

Getting a little aerobatic! Ask Wifey about the “Legend Of The Trapeze”!

 

1212172041.jpg

Snow angels!  In Florida??? Our “snow” comes in little gram baggies. But what would I know about that?

 

 

1212172051.jpg

Looks like she got into the chocolate. That will not help her keep her elfish figure!

Nothing like a nice refreshing mini-marshmellow bubble bath.

Looks to me like she was trying to put candy canes on the tree and something happened. Looks like an Elf slide for life now.

Be sure and check back next week to see what this crazy little Elf is up to! 

Peace,

Ginger the Elf

The girls convinced Wifey® to buy them an “Elf On A Shelf” this year. They named this one Ginger. Luckily the box said that this elf was a girl because the only difference I could see between the “boy” elf and the “girl” elf is that this one has painted on earrings. And we all know that earrings are not a gender identifier anymore.  So thank you whoever designed the boxes.

Since we only have the girls at our house on weekends, we figured Santa sent us an “apprentice elf”.  This is just a training mission, with light weekend duty only. So it’s only natural that poor Ginger gets bored during the week.

Although she hasn’t done anything inappropriate, we have found her in some unusual places in the mornings.

Ice fishing for goldfish. Seems she caught one too!

Having a tea party (with the girls best tea set) and two other elves.

Toy shopping in a catalog. Not sure who the gifts are for though…

Touching up a foot painting of the youngest granddaughter.

Watching the Charlie Brown Christmas play. If you look closely you can see she’s petting a catnip mouse!

 

We can only imagine what she’ll be up to next!

Peace,
