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 1

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.)

Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 22

It was only a matter of time before Creepy Ronald got in on the action again.  There are only a few more days to make mischief with his new friend. He has to make the most of it before Ruettiger flies home to the North Pole until next December!
Last night, they decided to wear beards and pretend to be Santa Claus! Ho Ho Ho!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 16

It didn’t matter that he climbed to the highest point of the Christmas tree, Deklan spotted Rudy as soon as he walked into the living room this morning. Ruettiger has a good vantage point from the very top of the tree with Santa… I sure hope the Duders behave themselves, because they won’t be getting away with much while Rudy is on lookout from up there!

And just to keep spirits on high, we went to visit Santa at the mall today. Deklan asked him for a Hummingbird feeder and a pair of track pants. Easton asked for a rubber ducky, a book, and an orange lollipop. How awesome are these Duders?!

Throwback: Santa Baby

Her brother was the star of yesterday’s post, so it only seems fair that Isla get her turn in the spotlight today.  Pretty convenient that I just so happened to have this portrait of her, waiting in the wings, wouldn’t you say?  And since I’m already knee-deep in holiday spirit, I figure it’s highly appropriate that this is from 2010 – Isla’s first Christmas. It’s still one of my favorite Christmas portraits to date. Doesn’t she make a such sweet little Santa Baby?!
