Magoo becomes Marvin

They say it is better to give than to receive. They are right! :)
Inbox Fun was where I shared what I won from Crystal of Two Little Aussie Birds. I was thrilled to receive that cute little monkey pattern to make for Deacon.

Lucky me!!!
As fall came, and the crazy-ness that is my life was whirling around me, I wasn't sure if this would be the Christmas Magoo would be born. However, one weekend...

Marvin the Monkey

I was rewarded beyond words, when early on Christmas morn, Deacon and Grammy V snuck out to meet his new monkey sitting by his stocking. (Shhhhh.....please don't tell on us!)

A buddy to nap with

The first thing he did was give it a kiss on that big smiling mouth. 


The second thing he did was give it a hug. And he held on to that hug for a long time while those cute little boy fingers patted away. My heart melted all over the place. 

Read to me

Deacon and his mommy and daddy have renamed Magoo, Marvin.
