Things are getting busier here at the North Pole as we get nearer to the halfway to Christmas date. The reindeer are out more and Holly is getting them fattened up as we will soon begin their flight practices. Mrs. Claus is teaching the young elves and I am spending time in the workshop. We will be working hard until we celebrate Christmas in July. Then it really gets busy. Betty keeps me reminded each day as to how many days we have till the flight. Bernard is busy training the elves and reorganizing the workshop. I have been enjoying this time and look forward to the Christmas in July Festival. Mrs. Claus and I will be spending time here this year for the celebration. Well, Betty is calling for me, gotta go. Remember to always be kind.
