Hello everyone!  I realize I should have written a post shortly after my big trip last week, but we had a lot of loose ends to tie up when I got back to the North Pole, so I never got a chance, and I apologize!

Thursday night was a crazy one, but I made it!  As I mentioned before, there was a record number of names on the nice list this year, so my 2009 trip around the world was extra long!  But no matter how long the trip was, it was still fun for me like always!  Ho!  Ho!  Ho!

Now that I’m home again, the elves, the reindeer, Mrs. Claus and I are taking the rest of the year off and enjoying our annual vacation, which actually lasts about a month.  But at the beginning of February we’ll be back at it getting ready and making preparations and improvements for our Christmas 2010 operations!  It’s a never-ending job and we love it!  🙂

As a final note, I’d like to mention that I just updated the video archive page, so now all my videos from 2009 are posted on the site for all to see!

I hope everyone around the world has a wonderful new year!  I’ll see you all again very soon. 🙂
