World's scariest sock monkey and a giveaway!

We didn't do a whole lot for Adam's birthday but I did decide, at the eleventh hour, to make him something quick and easy. And a little creepy.






















It was a group effort. Keith picked out the socks on his way home from work. If you think it's hard requesting the right kind of milk or bread over the phone, try communicating your sock monkey needs coherently. I think he did a good job with the colors and pattern. The length of the socks was startling but just makes for more monkey to love. Right?















And Adam does love it. He wanted to kiss it, rock it and read it a book. Love is blind.

Also, check out the cutest backpack ever and leave a comment for a chance to win.

I love the colors. Keith did a good job and I don't think that it looks creepy. You did a good job, Liane. Love to my littliest boy! Gram C

I've never had occasion to try to communicate my sock monkey needs, coherently or otherwise, but you seem to have done an admirable job of it. Adorable! really!

(I totally love that back pack too! Neat link.)

PS I had to read parts of this out loud to Shawn so we could laugh together, by the way. I loved the last lines especially: precious of Adam, both the words and the photo.
