Don’t forget about our contest my friends. 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:
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We are taking submissions until August 30th, 2014 at midnight.
We will randomly pick the top three submissions and post them for everyone to vote on in September.
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!
P.S. Here’s a heads up sneak preview of the captured Elf. He doesn’t look that evil – or does he?

Hey my friends – today I’m giving you the answers from mom and dad’s new game that I posted about yesterday. Remember, I showed you a picture to guess but did not give you any clues like how many letters or words the answer was. My deviled Ham side came out to play – snorts. The answer are posted below – how many did you get right? Remember these are the game answers and the game’s way of thinking. Should be interesting.
You have to put on your thinking cap and really look at the pictures. By looking at this picture to the left, you see a man, a boat and a tiger. The conclusion: Life of Pi

This one took mom and dad a bit to figure out. The number 10 means perfect in this illustration. The umbrella with the rain means storm.

The answer – Four Seasons
Picture 7 –
Another one that requires a little thinking. There’s a cat, a dog and a horse with a world looking image. What could it be. Oh – now it’s obvious –

The picture to the left is my mommy. The picture to the right is my dad. I think daddy still wears that hat and those cowboy boots – snorts. Who would have thought that one day this little girl would grow up and meet this little boy. And together, they would have this little pig as a child?
