Celebrating Monkey Monday



We had a great celebration in Buttercupland for Monkey Monday. Pepe received his Christmas presents early, blue jeans and a fun sweater. He gathered his friends, Socko (on the left) and Sockettte (on the right), Lucy and Ricky for a monkey portrait. A few other friends joined them and there was a lot of monkeying around before the group would properly pose. 
 

The snowpeople also got together for their group picture. Unlike Pepe and friends, there was no monkey business. They had lots of fun, but they assembled and stayed in place. There's still a collection of bears that will be getting together and I will share their picture later in the season.


Last summer when I was visiting St. Lawrence County in Northern New York I came across these so-cute monkey ornaments and snapped their pictures for this post. This sock monkey poses next to St. Lawrence River lighthouses. The candy stripes go nicely together.
 
This little guy would make a fine addition to anyone's tree or Monkey Monday celebration. Alas, I left him in Clayton, but I hope he's found a good home for Christmas fun.

I spent a wonderful afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum. Tomorrow I've got a dental appointment, but I'm following that with another post for the Buttercupland Book Fair. That post will include a giveaway, so I hope you'll stop back tomorrow.

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a terrific Tuesday.

Love your decorations. I have many Santas out but the snowmen are spending this year in their packing boxes. Gramma is getting too old to drag out everybody for the holiday.
