The Elf on the Shelf has been living with the Ott family for the past month and having quite the time keeping tabs on Little Miss MacchiOTTo and shOTT of Espresso. At our house the Elf has been named Alex. Alex reports to Santa each night and then first thing every morning we find what Alex was up to while we slept. MacchiOTTo has done well finding the Elf each morning and tries to guess what room Alex will be each morning when she wakes up. Here are a few of the places and things Alex has been doing.
Alex gets tangled up easily in lights, tinsel and toilet paper.
Alex makes friends easily with the other toys at the house and likes to go for rides.
Alex likes to eat and got into the Christmas cookies, candy, and even went our for McDonalds.
One time Alex even ziplined across the bathroom but we didn't get that one caught on camera. And then just today we found Alex dancing with our musical snowman. So with 6 more days till Christmas I'm sure Alex has more trouble to get into between now and then, but I also know on the last day Alex will deliver a letter from Santa telling the kids if they made the nice or naughty list. (It's a close call right now so we'll just have to wait and see.)
