Okay…BILBO is a very busy gnome here in Alberta. He has been up to lots and lots. He got to meet the kids when they got home…and the photo shoot was enormous! There were over 250 photos to sort through. I had to laugh at a lot of them. Here’s a taste of what he’s been doin’…
Saturday started out busy. We decided to do some bedroom cleaning out for spring and that turned into a total makeover. Bilbo supervised the prep for the painting of the first room…he got kicked out for being too bossy. And then it was ON!
He took his wounded ego out to the living room. He pouted until he grew bored and decided to explore his more feminine side…Yes…he is wearing a dress…and not a real pretty one I might add.
In spite of his fashion faux pas…somehow he managed to wheel a couple of fairies into having a photo shoot with him…he thinks he might hit a magazine cover one day and wants this in his portfolio to show how versatile he is.
But sadly, they had a falling out, and Barbie got kicked to the curb not long after…
Oh Bilbo….You are SO full of yourself!
Okay…that’s it for today…got to get back to work here…lots to do! Want to have a turn with Bilbo? Just head back to the top of the post, check out the rules again…and leave me a comment letting me know you want him. He will be catching a flight out of here this week! I will have one of my “assistants” make the draw on Wednesday evening.
A big hug goes out to the girls here who did a great job taking photos of Bilbo…helped him with his wardrobe changes…and shared their stuff with him…There is more…just had to shorten this a bit…there’s always tomorrow!!! hahaha.
Until tomorrow…hugs, smiles and a special little wink to my two biggest fans! (and you know who you are)
