Today was snow rowing day in the North Pole Olympics.
There are no lakes at the North Pole. It is too icy! The elves row on snow instead.
Two elves make a rowing team. They sit in a special boat. You can see it in the photo. It is painted red and green. It has special red and green cross pieces too.
The elves use candy canes for oars. These are special oars too. Each elf pulls back hard on one of the oars to move the boat ahead. The elves have to pull the oars at the same time. If not, the boat just goes in circles.
Today, Kissy and Mouse raced Scunner and Clumsy. What a race!
Kissy and Mouse were in the lead. Then Kissy dropped one candy cane. Their boat started to go off course. Scunner and Clumsy took the lead.
Then Clumsy broke one candy cane! Now THEIR boat started to go off course too.
Kissy and Mouse were rowing straight towards Scunner and Clumsy. Scunner and Clumsy were rowing straight towards Kissy and Mouse!
Kissy flew into the air and landed in a snow drift.
Clumsy flew into the air and landed on top of a Christmas tree.
Mouse and Scunner flew high into the air.
The crowd gasped. Where would they land?
A North Pole Olympics Surprise!
What a surprise when they landed together in the same boat!
They were both still holding a candy cane. So, they decided to be a new team!
They started to row towards the finish line. Everybody cheered and clapped. They were going very fast.
Mouse and Scunner crossed the line to set a new snow rowing world record. HOORAY!

What are the elves favorite sports? I know they love to working at the workshop with you. Are the elves like fishing then hold the fish? Did you and Mrs Claus love to go to the ocean and lay down for sun then warm? Haha I love the ocean in my life. I know the elves love to playing, dance, and sports just like the children.
