  1. Hot Tamale is toooooooooooo cute!! Would have one myself but our Rudy would surely drag him from post to post before shaking him silly

  2. I think the Elf on the Shelf is creepy, but love that you named him and he’s having adventures, just like the travel Gnome! Love your posts for the great ideas and sense of humor that shines through! Keep ’em comng and thanks!

  3. Hey Kelly!
