It's Mother's Day Weekend!
This weekend was an exciting weekend for my family. We attended my nephew's wedding which was fantastic and I got to finally see my nieces since COVID! Both were married during the height of COVID and I couldn't attend. The icing on the cake is one of my nieces is about to have a baby boy! My first grand-nephew!
As I was thinking about an activity for today's newsletter, I wound up taking a stroll down memory lane. When these kiddos were born I made sock monkeys for them. I was asked if I would make them for the new babies. I said, "OF COURSE!"
So... for those of you who remember Sock Monkeys from childhood, creating them yourself, or just plain curious I have several links to share and directions to make your own (it's my original pattern). Enjoy!
