Contest Time!

20 Aug

C O N T E S T     T I M E 

YAY!  Shake your tail feathers.  Do a little dance.  Have some fun – it’s contest time!  It’s so exciting.  We’ve been thinking about a contest here at the Hotel Thompson and I think we have a winner!

Every year at the Hotel Thompson the day after Thanksgiving our friend Don Juan comes out to play.  You remember Don Juan don’t you?  He’s our special little Elf on a Shelf that is *always* up to no good in so many different ways.   If you forgot about Don Juan, you can read about that little fellow here .  And we all have to remember when Don Juan filled in for me on a special Dear Bacon edition.  Oh dear piggy heavens.   Thank goodness he only sneaks out once a year.

I think we ALL remember this little surprise he left mommy last year under the Christmas tree.  Rolls piggy eyes.  He was bad.  I mean really bad.  He even liked to sneak in the bathroom and watch mommy take a shower.  He would throw skittles at her.  Unreal that fellow.

This year we thought we would share the fun.  That’s it.  Share the fun.  You can have your very own Evil Little Elf on a Shelf.  A friend of Don Juan has come to visit us here early.  He’s still boxed up because you know those elves don’t have secret powers until the day after Thanksgiving.

Here are the rules for the contest: 

  1. Send me an email at why you think you should adopt the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Explain what makes your family special and what you have to give.  Words, pictures or videos.  Whatever you think will give you the edge.  (Remember to give your blog address – thanks)

  2. We are taking submissions until August 30th, 2014 at midnight.

  3. We will randomly pick the top three submissions and post them for everyone to vote on in September.

  4. The winner gets their very own boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Now remember, this is a friend of our Don Juan.  Who knows if he is evil or good.  That’s between the winner and the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.

So put on your thinking hats my friends and get started with the emails.  It should be a blast!

    O…M…D!!! We don’t have Elves on Shelves here in South Africa, in fact the first time we even saw one was on Pinterest! We want…no…we NEED a South African Elf on a Shelf!! We’re calling an emergency family meeting tonight to discuss our plan and submission.

      Snorts. You would be right. That is our evil Don Juan. Nothing but no good. I’m telling you. He keeps us ALL on our toes, paws and hooves here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon

    Eek! If this Elf on the Shelf is going to pee on the floor we’re not sure we want him xD Then again, this does sound REALLY exciting. Ooh, our very own elf pet purhaps?

      Yep. It could be. Just because our misguided elf on the shelf is evil, it doesn’t mean his cousin will be. And right now, he’s captured, boxed and without elf powers. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        Do you remember Don Juan from last year? Chills – I’m telling you my friend – chills. Elf on the Shelf is suppose to be a cute little elf that watches over the household and reports back to the North Pole to Santa every night about how the children are acting. Simple premise. But somehow someway we got a misfit elf who got dropped on his head too many times at the North Pole. He is T.R.O.U.B.L.E. When he comes out the day after Thanksgiving, we at the Hotel Thompson walk on egg shells. He is into everything and making a mess and blaming us anipals! Not good my friend. I’m telling you it’s not good. XOXO – Bacon
        P.S. Will you take me in this year say the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas when he goes back into storage? Snorts

        Snorts. Lord only knows what he will get into this year. I may have to go into hiding. He has no boundaries. I think we’ve learned that. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom had never heard of the Elf on a Shelf until she came to the USA – we have heard so many bad things about them

      Snorts. Some are good. Most of them are. We just didn’t get so lucky here at the Hotel Thompson. But who knows about the one we have captured. XOXO – Bacon

    An Elf on a Shelf….we weren’t blogging last year but he sounds like a lot of fun to me. He’s my kind of guy! Busy, busy. I could have lots of fun with a dude that is really cranked up. hahaha

    Sloppy licks,

      He is very naughty my friends. Always up to no good. Thank goodness he only has special powers from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas day. I don’t think I could survive if it was much longer than that – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Ooooh Bacon! Elf on the Shelf has made it over to UK shores (though not for many) recently and as much as I think I would like one, they also scare me a little, too! Oooh I will have to think if I am brave enough to enter this one!
    Hugs, Carrie & Pups x

      Aaww – my sweet friend. I’m glad he’s made it over there. Hopefully this one we have captured and boxed won’t be so evil like our Don Juan. Maybe he’ll be nice and sweet and full of happiness. 🙂 But not likely right? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
