A Texas mother who forgot she stashed her family’s Elf on a Shelf in the oven shared the saga of Elfis’ untimely demise. Brittany Mease said in a Facebook post that while she has never been a fan of the “creepy” Elf on a Shelf, she participates each year because it makes her young children happy. When they weren’t looking she grabbed the Elf off the kitchen counter and quickly tossed him in the oven until she could move him later and not raise any suspicion. Mease said she forgot about Elfis’ hiding place until she was heating up lunch for the kids on Monday. Oh, oh! “That’s when all hell broke loose,” she said! Mease said her children were witness to Elfis’ melting form as she tried to rescue him from the oven. Mease attempted to use utensils to lift Elfis, causing his head to pop right off his body. Mease said her son, Gray, was distraught, but his 5-year-old sister, Ily, laughed at the elf’s demise. Mease said she put in a call to Santa while her kids listened in and she asked St. Nick to come take Elfis for some emergency medical treatment. The mother said in a follow-up post Tuesday that a “healed” Elfis was delivered to her children by Santa Claus, a moment she said the family will never forget.
