Toddlers are awesome!

I mean, they are not always awesome.  Often they totally suck.  But mostly they're awesome.  For instance, this morning I was unwrapping a new book sent to Elliot by his mimi (thanks, mimi!!).  I held it up for Elliot to see, and said, "Look, Elliot!  A Christmas tree!"  And he said, "OH!!!!  A Christmas tree!  WITH MONKEYS IN IT!!!" and grabbed the book and ran off.  

I don't know where he got the idea that christmas trees come decorated with monkeys--certainly there are no monkeys in the tree on the book's cover--but I must say I think it's a fantastic idea.

I see a Christmas tree totally covered in sock monkeys. That would be great.
And Eliot is at SUCH a fun age for Christmas!

What a coincidence. But Dad & I were in a store yesterday that had a small tree hung with rag monkeys in about 4 dif colors and 3 sizes. it was cool. I almost bought Elliot the blue monkey but Dad thought its mouth was scary! still, a tree decorated with monkeys! love, Mimi

Wanted to tell you my tree actually does have a [sock] monkey. Beck totally stole my thunder.
