Our Tree

Our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree is up.

We have lights in the windows and Elves abound.

Which of course Sinjin and Sumner love most of all.  In just two weeks we will be celebrating Christmas and all of it’s fun and glory.  It staggers the mind.

O Christmas Tree

Hope Lodge began their Christmas Tree event on Saturday.  We all went over with The Roomie.  It was so pretty and very neat.

This Historical Mansion is so beautiful and even more so all decked out for the Holidays 🙂

Christmas Fun – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

We went with the Roomie to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the historic Walnut Street Theater.

Mr. Nigel Murray loves the theater.  He said it reminded him of his days in London.

We all wondered if he wore clothing in London?  It’s not a question one just blurts out and he wasn’t being forth coming.

Pablo gave the show 12 nubs up!  He was loving the songs and chuckling along like the rest of us.  It was a wonderful day In Town.  We are all starting to feel the Christmas spirit!  God Bless us Everyone!

Happy New Year Everyone!

It’s been a busy Holiday Season for us Elves and friends of Bjorn.

Christmas was fun.  We have some new Elves, Gnomes and assortment of Creatures living with us now.  It’s a little crowded but as the Roomie has always said…There is always enough room to help out others!  This was my first Christmas and New Years with the group and let me tell you it was so much fun.

We partied like Rock Stars on NYE!  We had a comfy fire in the fireplace going and Ryan Seacrest pretending to be as awesome as Dick Clark on TV watching the Ball Drop in Times Square.

I was texting all my friends wishing them a Happy and Safe 2014!

Last night we got a snow storm that brought us 8″ of snow.  It was very pretty and extremely cold.  I’m just thankful I’m not living outside in the Garden anymore.  Nights like this weren’t fun back then.

I wasn’t paying attention to the frolicking going on around me and found myself on the receiving end of a snowball to the face.  All is good though.  I wiped myself off and jumping into the festivities!

After our play we all went in for cups of tea and hot chocolate.  It was a good time.

Bjorn and all of his mates wish you and yours a very Happy and Healthy 2014!!!

The Colors of Christmas

We went to Longwood Gardens with the Roomies this weekend.  It was spectacular.

The trees, poinsettia, orchids and the apple lane were spectacular.  We also got to sing carols with the 39th largest organ in the world playing for us.

Night arrived and the lights came on.  It is quite a sight to behold.  Thad and I are really feeling the Christmas Spirit now!

Merry Christmas…Happy New Year and Other Stuff

Christmas was fun.  We have an Elf living with us now.  Her name is Chardonnay and she likes to drink and surf the internet but not necessarily in that order.

Bjorn said anyone with pointy ears and wine is always welcome.  He’s cool like that for a troll without pointy ears.

Everyone took turns with the Santa disguise for fun and giggles but the best was Linus who went all Grizzly Santa Adam with his costume.

Later on Christmas Linus and Teddy hung around chatting about Curling and how it is an underrated a sport.  Which it totally is and the world should jump on board the Curling Bus!

The whole gang wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!

The Holiday Season: The Alistair Report

Our gang of wacky Trolls, Fairies, Gnomes, Witches and the occasional nun increased by one this Holiday season.  Phineas Flannery joined our band of explorers.  I’m not sure how much exploring he actually got done because when I left Finn on NYE he looked drunk and was sitting ON the bar.

Phineas Flannery...Drunkin' Fairy

We had a blast and Finn is getting to know all of the Gang.  He was exceptional at playing Just Dance 3.  That Fairy’s got moves!


Christmas was pretty awesome this year.  Bjorn’s having so much fun in Moosic that he just texts us to tell us he’s having fun.  I went with the Roomie and Ephinany to a place called Shady Brook to see the Christmas lights…dude it was off the hook!


I’ve never seen so many lights.  Except on Clark W. Griswold’s house of course!


Christmas was quite magical.  The only thing I wished was that it didn’t go by so quickly!
