Elf on Shelf Contest – Winner

11 Sep

IMG_0146 IMG_0145-0

So this contest is said and done.  First up – I want to thank EVERYONE that submitted emails and EVERYONE that voted.  We really appreciate that here at the Hotel Thompson.  There were some great emails sent and don’t worry – there will be more contests in the future 🙂

It was a very close race in the voting.  The top 3 according to the list were:

No. 3 – Evil Squirrel

No. 2 – Sammy

No. 1 WINNER – Samuel and Wallace!

Congratulations my friends.  South Africa is going to get their very own Elf on the Shelf.

Samuel and Wallace, please send me your address to send you your new friend.  You will need to name him before Thanksgiving.  Keep in mind, he is related to our Don Juan but who knows what his personality will be until after he receives his powers the day after Thanksgiving.  Don’t forget to post updates on him.  We will surely miss the guy here at the Hotel Thompson.

      Snorts and rolls around laughing with your enthusiasm of being happy. Congrats my friends. Can’t wait to see what the name will be and what kind of special powers he will get in November. Will he be sweet, nice or mischievous – that’s all to be pondered. I just hope that Don Juan hasn’t rubbed off on him too much. XOXO – Bacon

    Congrats to all that entered. Reading the e-mails was such fun and I think I laughed the loudest at Samuel and Wallace. I think everybody that entered should get an Elf on the Shelf….just my opinion…

      Snorts – that’s what I think too my friend. This one is up for grabs this time but who’s to say that others might not need a home in the foreseeable future. I’m just saying 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

      It’s definitely going to be more interesting to see what this little fellow brings to their household – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        09/11/2014 at 1:10 pm

        Me too. I think it would be a snort of a good time. Too bad I can’t hand deliver the little elf. Wouldn’t that be totally awesome? XOXO – Bacon

    • wallaceandsamuel

      09/12/2014 at 1:32 am

      Heeeey…you called it ZA, that must mean you know people from our parts ‘cos only South Africans refer to their country as ZA!!
      Oh Easy and Bacon, our country is really, really aroootiful! We wish you could come visit us, we’d have the most pawsome time!

      You were so very close cousin. Really! It was a fun and tight race. I appreciate you submitting an entry. And who knows, if I can find a treasure trove of little available elves before now and Thanksgiving, one might just find it’s way to all of you! XOXO – Bacon

    • wallaceandsamuel

      Thank you my friend so very much for submitting your request. It was a blast of a good time – it really was!! Like I said, I am on a mission to find some elves up for adoption. Who knows if one might find its way to you. I’m just saying. I’m off to see if I can get Houdini to make daddy’s credit card disappear now – evil snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Woohoo! Congrats to Sammy and Wally (is it alright if I call you that?) I knew my friends behind me would make sure to stuff the ballot box against me… though it looks like they almost failed if I came in third!

    Thanks a lot for hosting this contest, Bacon! I had a blast coming up with my entry, and reading those of the other finalists! I’ll try to do better the next time! 😉

    • PigLove

      09/11/2014 at 1:13 pm

      aaww my friend. I appreciate your submission. It was a great and fun contest. Who knows what I might do in the future… especially if I can teach Houdini how to lift dad’s credit card when he’s not looking – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    • wallaceandsamuel

      09/12/2014 at 1:34 am

      ABSOLUTELY!! We much prefer Wally and Sammy…Wallace and Samuel are our “you’re in trouble” names BOL!
      Congrats on coming third dude! As we said to Sammy (the spoilt cat) maybe an elf will somehow find his way to your house??
