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!

Such handsome monkey boys...some almost men. I think you need a bigger pillow.

Definitely time for a bigger pillow! Great photos to cherish.

A monkey GIRL is definitely needed to boss around those monkey boys. LOL. What fun photos with your fabulous pillow!

Oh...from our Madame Samm blog hop days. That brings back so many memories. Goodness your monkeys have grown...I agree a Monkey girl would be just perfect! Sending my best to all the monkeys and have a very Happy New Year!

So sweet! I remember that blog hop!

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.

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

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.

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!

Susan said...

Precious pictures and boys. Now you need to make a larger pillow:-)

Oh Carol!!! What a fabulous picture. I just love it - it brings a huge smile to my face. And I can only imagine how big your smile it. Not a girl in the bunch?!! I love the 'pretend to be asleep' concept. HAHA! Many blessings and Happy New Year to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

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.

What fun! And that pillow is just charming. Excuse me while I go hunt it down! Happy 2019!
