Blue Monkey Boy...

On the prairie there lives a boy....

a little boy named McCrae...




who is {tender hearted} and {loving}...

who simply {adores} monkeys...

who is {obsessed} with the color blue...

and better yet combine the two...

*Blue Monkeys*

{makes mom's life a bit difficult sometimes...birthdays and Christmas...trying to find blue monkeys} :0)

a little boy who gathers treasures, keepsakes, and magic...

a little boy who takes after his mom; looks at junk and bits that have been discarded with a loving eye...

who has started a card collection...

any and every card is taken in and studied, exclaimed over, tucked away for future pleasure...

when his mom put forth a call to her fellow bloggers to be on the look at for the lost gingerbread man...

we never would have dreamed that...

EACH day at school he was greeted with not only one, but two or three new cards or letters from around the world letting him know the gingerbread man had been spotted...




his days were filled with utter joy and amazement...

and will continue to be so...

for each card and letter has been tucked away with his most prized treasures...

looked over lovingly and handled with pure childhood magic...

*thank you* to ALL who helped bring such magic to a little blue monkey boy this holiday season...

prairie XO,

Awww! What a tender old soul he has!
A thoughtful child is rare! My grandson loves monkeys as well. But not blue ones. Blue are special for sure.

What soulful eyes McCrae has! You're so fortunate he shares your interests--will be fun to see how all that develops in him. Thanks for letting us share in the adventures of Gingie . . . the poem was fun to write (haven't done that in years!).

Bay hugs,

I hope he received mine from Texas, it was really a lot of fun doing this. Like I wrote to you earlier, it made me so miss my boys being little, so I could to dream they still were for a moment. He's such a cutie and I know you'll cherish these times. They grow up so fast!
