Elf on the Shelf, Year 5

Ah, the long-forgotten old blog.  There’s no time like the present to dust it off for some Elf on the Shelf fun and antics!
With December right around the corner, my boys are impatiently awaiting the annual arrival of Ruettiger, our Elf on the Shelf.
I recently realized that I didn’t blog ANY of his photos from last year!   I figure that before he arrives for his SIXTH Christmas with us, I should share what he got up to last year.

Here goes nothing…

Growth Chart Rulers – Now available for order/purchase!

My uber-talented Mister made me a growth chart ruler for Mother’s Day a few years back.  Since then, he’s had numerous inquiries and requests so we’ve decided to make them more available.

There’s a new page on the website where you can ask questions, and/or order your own custom ruler.

While we don’t currently offer shipping, local pick-up is available in the Victoria area!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Day 9 & 10

Our tree went up on Sunday night, but it has yet to be decorated.  Ruttiger took advantage of the empty branches to get involved in a little army role-playing! He knows how much the boys love to play war, so he put on some face camouflage and hid in the tree!

 

After a long, uncomfortable day in the tree, Rudy decided to take it easy – but he brought the Duders a treat! He knows that they have Goldfish crackers every single night as a bedtime snack, so he brought them some fun Holiday ones!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Day 6-8

Over the past few days, Ruettiger has been keeping the boys in line, and in awe!

Saturday was the annual IEOA Truck Light parade. Rudy obviously didn’t want to miss out on the fun, because we found him hanging from the rear-view mirror in the car so he could join us!

He knows that Mister goes curling every Tuesday night, so Ruettiger decided he’d give the sport a try too!

Easton’s advent calendar is Pirate Playmobil, and I think Rudy likes it, because the boys found him this morning in the Crows Nest of E’s pirate ship!  Ahoy there Matey! AAARrrrrrrrr!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Day 5

Apparently Ruettiger has taken an interest in DIY (Maybe he’s been watching too much HGTV).  We awoke this morning to find him swinging on a homemade swing in the basement!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Days 3 & 4

Ruettiger is a bit of a snoopy little elf. He couldn’t wait to see what the next beer in the Phillips advent calendar was, so he figured he’d dive in and check it out for himself.

Fun with googly-eyes! Silly Ruettiger put googly-eyes on a wedding portrait of me and Mister, and then decided to join the fun and wear a pair himself too!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Day 2

Ruettiger knows how much the Duders love Minecraft, so he took the first opportunity he could to see what all the fuss was about… and what better way to it than to go ALL OUT and surround yourself with blocks and play while wearing a Creeper head?

(Do you want to make your elf his/her own Creeper head? The Lunchbox Memoirs shared this free printable!)
