Our Elf on the Shelf 2013 Adventures: Day 16
This location did not turn out as I had envisioned. I really wanted to rig Eli from the living room fan "flying" toward the tree, but I couldn't pull it off. So, I opted to have him parachuting from the chandelier; still cute but not quite the same impact! Tying him up was not easy. I had to keep adjusting the string, because for the first few attempts he looked like he had hung himself with the parachute - not the image I was aiming for! After much tinkering with him I was comfortable with the spot. There was,however, one issue that occurred later in the day when I accidentally hit him with my head. T, of course, noticed right away and panicked. I had to lie and tell her it must have been a breeze from my body moving because I didn't feel myself make contact with him. Not sure she bought it. I'm going to blow this whole Christmas thing way too soon!
