Elf on the Shelf Ideas

I love our Elf on the Shelf, Ritchie!  We look forward to when Richie arrivies and we cry when he leaves!   Here are a few of our Ritchie’s antics! Follow my Elf on the Shelf Pinterest Board HERE

Richie arrived at our home in a sealed Santa’s Workshop Lego set. We were all so surprised and we didn’t know he was inside for quite a while!

We found Richie and his reindeer in a roll of TP

Richie is somewhat of a card shark, sporting a full house in this game of Tripoley.

Richie gathered all the stuffed cats in the house an placed them on the stairs. He was found reading my “Think Like A Cat” book.

The day before Richie had to go back to the North Pole (December 24th) Richie was granted extra magic which meant we were able to hold him – but only that day.  This was such a thrill to my little girl – this was the most special day ever.



  1. These are adorable! I forwarded it to my daughter. My grandkids, 9 & 5 both get very excited waiting for their elf, even the 9 year old. Wonder what will happen this year at her school. These are terrific and thank you.
