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!
