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!

The Ruler

As I mentioned here, I’m a bit obsessed with Pinterest.  One could call me a Pinterestaholic and they wouldn’t be far from the truth.

When Mother’s Day rolled around, I dropped more than my fair share of hints as to what I’d really like for a present.
Lucky for me, Mister is a handy guy, and he obliged my nagging.  Armed with a piece of lumber and a number of tools (including custom brands for the numbers) he worked away over a couple of afternoons, and made me this awesome gift.

Behold, the giant Ruler!

Now, instead of just a piece of moulding, we have a pretty awesome (moveable) ruler to record the heights of our boys as they grow up!
