The relations from Michigan descended this weekend. We had a blast. I love having my brother, his wife and their kids over. My niece and nephew are 3 & 5. This is an age of wonder. Quizz is just over the moon because they are just the right height and age to be automatic treat dispensers.
I happened to have two sock monkeys on hand that I had made earlier in the year. Eli went bonkers over his. You see a monkey is a favorite animal of his. Evelyn on the other hand is a girlie-girl. The monkey looked too much like a boy in her mind. No clothes. No frills. Ergo – NOT GIRLIE.
So, I found myself accessorizing sock monkeys. Evelyn is very specific in what her monkey should wear. I sense a future fashionnista in the making. Eli, not to be left out, demanded a hat for his monkey.
Two hats, one skirt, & one tie. I have two clothed monkeys. I never thought I was so adept at clothing monkeys.
The family left this morning. Quizz tried to hide himself in the van with them. After all, little people are the best. So he’s moping. The house is quiet.
We need our monkeys back.
