My Lawn Gnome

I always wondered why people have lawn gnomes. I mean who wants creepy little elf like men with pointy hats in their front yard? Well after last Sunday I have begun to understand their charm.

This sweater Porter is wearing (in the picture below) was made by a lady in our last ward and it is fabulous. It zips all the way up the back to the tip top of his head (makes it super-duper easy to get on) and the best part is the zipper makes the top pointed so he looks absolutely ridiculous! (In a lovable, adorable, fabulous way) Phillip said he looks kind of like a lawn gnome and I have to agree, minus the grumpy old man face and beard...

:) LOVE that little gnome! I don't think it would be fair to make him spend the rest of his days sitting in your front flowerbed, but he would definitely add some charm to the decor!

And HOLY COW he is getting big! I mean, you know they're going to grow up and change and all that, but it's still so hard to believe when they do...

Whenever I see one of those gnomes I giggle nervously like in "the Home Teachers". Yeah, I'm weird. :)
