Hello to all Story Book Readers.
Christmas came early this week in the monkey house. It was a very special time. Santa wasn’t dressed in red nor did he have a white beard or a red nose. Actually his name wasn’t even Santa, it was Cam, Courtney, Leslie, Jenn, and our new friend Lori. This year Cam and Courtney went with one less present on Christmas in order to do something nice for the monkeys. They all arrived one evening with Christmas boxes for each one of the group. IT WAS WONDERFUL! Sweet Pea’s BIG box was filled with shredded paper and mixed in the paper were presents! A stuffed animal, a ginger bread cookie all wrapped up, some jelly beans in a container. WOW! The best present for Pea was that very special soft coat that she found in the box. She takes it up to bed every night to sleep with. Lexy’s box had a new doll in it for her, which she has since adopted as her new baby. Lexy doesn’t like just any doll, she is very particular, but her new doll was a good choice. Chelsea had a Sponge Bob Square Pants water toy in her box, it bubbles when you push the button. She really likes the sound that it makes. New rubber boots were also in her box! Everyone who knows Chelsea knows how much she likes boots. Mr. Jenkins got a stuffed toy snake and he enjoyed playing tug of war with Cam. They all liked their boxes so much. It was very special for us to watch them. Cam and Courtney did such a great job putting the boxes together. Cam and Courtney….you are very special for thinking of the monkeys and giving them such a wonderful day…thank-you!
We are glad you are all a part of our monkey family.

Today, Kathy and Jeff arrived from Toronto to help with the monkeys. They too came with very special presents. Some of Kathy’s students made monkey necklaces with pasta and hemp. Pierre enjoyed his so much. If any of you students are reading. Great job!!! Thank-you.

As I sit here blogging and being thankful and as yet another year is fast coming to an end, I feel really blessed at how many friends the monkeys have and how many people I truly call friend. So to all of you who have helped the monkeys in any way, we are glad you are apart of our extended monkey family, we are blessed to have you. Please know that you have made a difference and the monkey’s lives are better for it. My life is better for it, Thank-you. Sherri
