This is Monty. He is our alternative to Elf on the Shelf. Every morning we find him encouraging us to do something kind for someone or a special activity we can do together as a family that day.
He arrived at our house on December 1st and since then we have made our pastor's family dinner, made cookies, ornaments, gone C-mas shopping, visited a nursing home, were official judges for our neighborhood lights contest, a dance party, saw the Rockin' Lights in Old Settlers Park.
The kids enjoy finding him each morning and then they return him to his bed under the Christmas tree each day.
