Of Elks and Dales

Nelly and I had a great time being part of the Gooberstanian Beard Growing Competition, so much so she is now practicing for another one …

She paused there for a moment¬†because she couldn’t remember how it goes. However, this is the finished article …


Not bad …¬† hey?! Now all we have to do is find an ‘Entrance Mat Origami’ competition …

Nelly is learning very quickly. The other day I was giving her a lesson in ‘Elk Appreciation’. We each took an elk into the living room and gave them a good chewing over …


But then she started playing the ‘I want your elk’ game.


She’s pawing my elk!


No, Nelly, you can’t have it. This is my favorite elk that Santa brought me.


Right then, you put your nose into the hand hole like this …


No Nelly, you can’t have it! Aaaaaah …. my ear!


Well, then the whole thing just deteriorated into an all out wrassling match. Nelly has 9 new teeth now …


And guess who ended up with my elk?????


But I don’t mind. I love my little sister.


Bye for now.

    Nelly’s origami skills are amazing! How does dhe do it?

    Finni you are such a good big brother, you share your favourite elk and wrassle so nicely, please could you pass on some tips to my little brother? Well you know what he is like don’t you?

    Hope to see you all soon.

    Aw, Finni! I feel your pain, but really, I think you know how to thwart any reall attempts Nelly has at taking what you want. The wrasslin’ and growling definitely help, but you’ve got to first pick up a toy you don’t want while acting all the while as if it is the absolute BEST toy in the entire world. Then you put up enough of a fight to make it look convincing, then you let her win. She prances off with a satisfied smile, and you go back to sleeping or playing with the toy you REALLY wanted in the first place.

    By the way, my girl wanted me to thank you guys for entering the competition. You helped make it very interesting.

    My girl also said she likes the blonde curlies on top of your punkin head, buddy (those are HER words, not mine)! She’s partial to the curls. And, she said it looks like you and Nelly need some extra snuggles, so she’s sending some your way. (Again, all I can say is SHEESH!)

    Goober love,

    Hey Finni, nice to catch up with you and see your sister is home.
    I have to tell my sister off, sometimes I don’t wanna share and there’s always more toys in the toy box. Those girls just wanna get in on the action.
    Happy new year to you and your family.
    Love George
