Okay! I'm adding more to this post. We woke up a week ago and found this Beautimous creature in our yard. We woke up THIS Friday morning and his Big Pink Brother was right beside him! ooooh we have plans....don't you worry!! >:} (that's an evil grin btw)
So, we have a bit of an odd practice in our little family. We like to sneak around in the dark at each other's homes and place beautiful surprises for that family. It all started about two years ago when Cary and I purchased a rather large gnome for Mum for Christmas. A friend from her work had given her a small gnome as a gift, but it was tragically and mysteriously broken one day. In order to lift her spirits, we thought it best to give her another gnome. She was absolutely shocked and probably a little horrified. :) That started the game. He would show up on doorsteps during the holidays and special occasions! He has since been misplaced and so we have had to resort to other equally lovely lawn ornaments. In Mum's garden she has 3 miniature gnomes, 2 miniature mushrooms, a solar light frog, and a medium sized garden working gnome. Tammy's yard currently only has two large pink flamingos, and we have one medium sized fluorescent yellow peacock head thing. I will post photos tomorrow.
For now, this is the gnome that Mum received while she was sick, right before Christmas. He certainly cheered her right up
