Elf on the Shelf {day 2}

{day 2} Ellie the Elf visits Phyllis' office and brings her candy canes

I happened to be here before Phyllis this morning, so when she entered her office I heard her exclaim "There's an Elf in here!!!"  This made Diana and I chuckle, later I heard Kathy explaining the elf story.  I hope Phyllis was nice today LOL

Elf on the Shelf {day 1}

I decided to plan a whole month of silliness at the office with an Elf on the Shelf.  I thought we could use some excitement around here... it has been a very busy and stressful year.  A little extra fun around the holidays is always a good thing.

Since today was her first visit, I thought I would give the our elf the red carpet treatment by stringing out a big red ribbon.  Our sweet elf brought with her a letter from Santa and some powdered doughnuts :)

Santa's letter requested that we name our elf, so my boss asked everyone to submit names for a vote. The name options were:

  1. Aleph
  2. Millie
  3. Willie
  4. Ellie
  5. Ms Rumchatta, the mischievous ELF

We took a vote this afternoon and the majority decided her name is Ellie the Elf.

{day 1} Ellie the Elf arrives at MTA

My Everyday Life ~ July 9 - July 15, 2012

Here is what my last week looked like:

first herb harvest from my garden

Jay & Josh on Long Prairie Trail

My mountain bike... I call her Matilda.

Cute bike seen at Tour de North End
( it reminded me of the 80s when we wore bike shorts as fashion statements!)

Here I am with my road bike (I call her Penelope!) at one of the rest stops for Biking with Beanzie

action shot of Jay's road bike

yup!!  ;-)
