I've been a bad blogger.
I've been a bad Christmas shopper.
I've been a bad holiday baker.
I've been bad at keeping our house clean.
I've been bad at a lot of things.
Let's blame it on these silly monkeys!
I'm totally loving Project RedButt, but I will be completely honest and say that it takes A LOT longer to make them than I originally anticipated...especially considering that I have a flashy new sewing machine helping me out!
The monkeys are coming together slowly but surely. I'm guessing that between myself and all of my monkey volunteers we should have about 25 of them. Not too shabby for only 3 weeks notice! I do know that next time I will make a monkey here and there throughout the year so that its not such a rush in December! Hopefully there are lots more years of monkey giving in our future! Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help with this years donation and to those of you who are planning to make some monkeys once the holiday craziness is over with. I couldn't have done it without you!
Our adorable little monkey friends will be delivered to the hospital on Christmas Eve and distributed to patients in the PICU with some other Santa gifts. If anyone out there knows of any other heart kiddos that are stuck in Omaha Children's over the holiday but NOT in the PICU, please give me a heads up as I would like to get one for them as well! Hopefully RedButt will bring as many smiles to those kiddos and their families as they did to ours!
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.
Our little family - Christmas 2010
Charlotte was SO excited when she met her new buddy RedButt!
Then she got hungry!
