TGIF & Tommy's Plight

I would like to thank everyone who commented on our holiday decor...and especially those of you that had kind words to say about my Tommy.

You see, despite that adorable face...I am the only one that likes Tommy. That's right. The rest of my family does. not. like. Tommy.

Well, at one time, Amy was fond of Tommy...and because he had been emotionally and verbally abused here, she adopted him and took him to Nebraska to live. But, sadly, it did not work out and she returned him to me.


You see, Tommy talks too much...
...in fact, Tommy doesn't know when to Shut Up.
Tommy has three phrases.
"Be our guest and stay awhile."
"I'm so glad you're here."
"Come on in, it's warm inside."



But just check out his adorable attire...


And he tirelessly holds the Welcome sign that greets everyone that passes through our foyer...
And with a split foyer home, there is quite a bit of traffic that passes through...





Such a cheerful smile...Always a positive attitude...


Last weekend, we invited three other families over to watch football here.
"Be our guest and stay awhile." ... "I'm so glad you're here." .... "Come on in, it's warm inside." ... "Be our guest and stay awhile." ..."I'm so glad you're here." ... "Come on in, it's warm inside." ... "Be our guest and stay awhile." ... "I'm so glad you're here." ... "Come on in, it's warm inside." ..."Be our guest and stay awhile." ... "I'm so glad you're here." ... "Come on in, it's warm inside."








"Be our guest and stay awhile." ..."I'm so glad you're here." ..."Come on in, it's warm inside." ..."Be our guest and stay awhile." ..."I'm so glad you're here." ..."Come on in, it's warm inside." ..."Be our guest and stay awhile." ..."I'm so glad you're here." ..."Come on in, it's warm inside."...




Oh. My. Gosh. And now this...Someone has broken Tommy's nose!

Poor Tommy.

Oh my gosh....Poor Tommy. He was just doing his job as host! Who would have the nerve to knock off his nose? I do think you should call in the professionals on this case. Someone needs to be held accountable for his/her actions.
I love the picture of Tommy and the kitty. TOOO cute.

Some people (snowmen) just get no respect. Tommy looks like a wonderful doorman to me. I hope he won't let this nose thing get him down.

Haha, hilarious! I do know how annoying those chatterboxes can be! I think some good strong tape over his mouth might work ... well maybe not.
