|This Christmas Eve, Santa Claus will personally deliver all the presents to
good little girls and boys--unlike last year, when, in an effort to get ahead
of schedule, he dispatched his elves to make deliveries at the very first stop
in Summerset and then had to rescue them from the mistakes they made. Santa
sent a different helper to each of the five adjacent houses on Snowflake Lane
(numbered 101, 103, 105, 107, and 109 east-to-west), including the White
family's, and then had to enter the house to help the elf before continuing
his world-wide route--behind schedule. Given the information below about

- The Chihuahua incident didn't occur at the Rudolph residence.
- Neither Bigfoot nor Ollie is the helper who offended the dog.
- After rescuing Tiny Tim at one house, Santa Claus went next door to
find trouble at the Rudolphs.
- The house where Santa found one helper chasing ornaments around the
living room floor because he had knocked over the family Christmas
is immediately between the home to which Grouchy went and the Frost
- Bigfoot's assignment wasn't 109 Snowflake Lane.
- The Frosts don't live next door to either the Rudolphs or the family
who had the mountain bike caught in their chimney.
- Ollie, who wasn't dispatched to 103 Snowflake Lane, isn't the elf who
delivered five Barbie dolls and to the family who have five sons and
