Well the christmas season has well and truely kicked in, which is probably why I have’nt been out exploring as much as I would normaly. Last year the Mooney house recieved a special visitor for December in the form of Rex the Elf. Rex is one of Santa’s special little Elves, whose sole job is to visit the homes of children and observe their behaviour in the lead up to the big day. Each day the elf makes a report for Santa which is then used to compile the ‘Naughty or Nice’ list. When Santa arrives on Christmas Eve, he collects your elf and brings him back to the North Pole. Last year Ryan, Ava and Dylan where on there best behaviour.It is said that if the children have been really good and made their Elf feel at home during his stay they might be lucky enough to have him return next year.
Well this year it seems that Rex was on a special mission for Santa, but he sent one of his friends to keep a close watch over Ryan, Ava and especially Dylan. So our special quest for this year is called Lloyd. Despite his uncanny resemblance to Rex, Lloyd also shares his nature and keeps on moving around the house on a daily basis, much to the amusement of the kids, who have to find out where he has moved too each morning before school. For a little guy, he sure gets around, to date he has gone from the Kitchen counter to the top of the christmas tree. Then today when I got home from work the kids were delighted to show me where Lloyd had gotten to next. And what a suprise it was. He somehow had manadges to attach himself to one of the kitchen light fittings along with a bauble from the christmas tree. So far, Lloyd has not caused to much trouble whilst he has been staying with us and he sure seems to be keeping the kids on their best behaviour. Stay tuned for more adventures from Lloyd the Elf.
