I came to the end of the pile, and found a jacket that needed to make it's way down to the coat closet. So, not unheard of in the Ahrens's home, I chucked it over the banister to make it's descent to the lower level for someone to hang it up for me. And that's when it happened.
Shout! and his crew, Ariel and Scott, the deer, were all knocked over by the coat I threw. I saw it happening in slow motion, and not until the jacket left my fingers, did I remember that Shout! and the gang were perched on top of a piece of furniture in the living room, below me. The horror! The screams! ELF DOWN! ELF DOWN!!! Well, that's how it happened.

|Here is the photographic evidence of THE accident.|
The diagram has everything from me on top of the stairs, down to her and Charlie's location on the sofa. She even wrote a note. It's phonetically spelled, so I will interpret for you-
"Dear Santa Mommy accidentally knocked Shout from where he was. Merry Christmas. To Santa. Love Shayna."
