The Monkey Boys Grew And Grew And The Pillow Disappeared

Way back in 2012 I made a Christmas pillow in the Holiday Lane Blog Hop.
It's a free pattern by Jillily Studio that is easy and so adorable.


There were only a few Monkey Boys to rest their heads on the pillow in 2012.


And then the Monkey Boy numbers grew, and grew, and grew until the pillow disappeared
beneath them! Time has flown by and these boys melt my heart no matter what they do.


Monkey Baby obviously doesn't understand the concept of "pretend to sleep."
I'm so grateful my daughter took these photos and sent them to me.


Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

  6. That's such a cute idea and the boys look happy to participate in the fun.

    Your Craftsy woes do sound like a nightmare and a total waste of time. I'm so sorry.

  7. If you can't have a Monkey Girl, maybe you need 2 or 3 pillows? Have a Happy New Year Carol!

  8. That is such a sweet and fun photo of the boys. Yes, quite a difference since you made the pillow but such a joy to have so many grandchildren.

  12. What a precious, precious picture!! They are all so handsome! I do agree with some of the others - they definitely need a larger pillow and a monkey girl to keep them all straight!! She would never lack for an over protective big brother!! Happy New Year, Carol!

  15. Boy energy! It is quite the household when there are that many boys - I grew up with 4 brothers. This is the cutest picture I have seen for awhile - especially the nonsleeper.
