Contest Time! – REMINDER

28 Aug

C O N T E S T     T I M E 

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: 

  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.

  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!

 P.S.  Here’s a heads up sneak preview of the captured Elf.  He doesn’t look that evil – or does he?

    Hey Bacon!
    Wow, that little guy is a little freaky! BOL/Snorts I’m guessing if my peeps win he’ll be pure evil. I’ll get this added to the BCCalendar. 🙂
    Grr and Woof,

    I’m still contemplating an entry, but I have a question. Do we have to email our entries, or can I post mine on my blog (which will allow me to format my images better than in email, where I haven’t really figured that out yet)? I promise it won’t be a 34712893 part entry, too! 😉

      Sure. Let me know when you post. I’ll reblog to my page. Should be fun. XOXO – Bacon

    Ohohoh, he’s got a cheeky little chubby face, not a cruel looking friend though! Whee’re sure he’ll make a buddy for someone!
