Name That Gnome!

Okay. Here's where the slightly eccentric side of me comes out. On Sunday, my parents came over for dinner and brought with them a couple presents for the hubs's and my one-year wedding anniversary. They made it clear that one was for both of us, and the other was more for me. Needless to say I was excited to see what "mine" was, and as I peeled off the paper, I saw a pointy red hat, then two eyes, then a white beard...that's right, they got us a garden gnome!


Much to the hubs's dismay, my mom said she remembered me saying I'd like one to adorn our lawn, and now that he's here (and because I have an affinity for personifying inanimate objects) he needs a name! This is where you come in. See that poll below? I'd love it if you voted for your favorite name; or do you think you have a better one? Go ahead and leave it in a comment. After a week I'll announce the winner, and then this little guy can officially be part of our crazy family.

Ready? Set?

Name That Gnome!

  2. I love gnomes! I never thought to give mine names. Hmm, maybe I will. I love "Percival's" (that's my vote) little facial expression. Very jolly.
