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.
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!
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?
For the 4th year running, December 1st brought the arrival of our Dey Family Holiday elf: “Rudy” Ruettiger! Night one he brought advent calendars with him, and left a quick message (using NHL Scrabble Tiles) for the Duders.
His adventures this year will be documented on Instagram, and shared on Pinterest. (Speaking of Pinterest, you can check out Ruettiger’s previous antics by going to his Pinterest board here, or scrolling back through the blog archives.)
