Cards From the Kids

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

I think my favorite part of Christmas, this year, was the fact that the kids made cards for everyone in the family, including each other.

They usually make cards for Real Man and I, but this year, they decided to each make a card for every single one of us.

I loved them.

They made me smile and laugh and just feel good.

So, I thought that I’d share some of my favorites with you.

They are my favorites for a lot of different reasons, but if nothing else, they are pretty darn cute.

Here are a few…


From Baby Monkey to me…”Mom I love you.  Thanks for the great year.” (Thanks for the great year…too funny.)


From Baby Monkey to the whole family…”Mom I love you.  You’re the best.  Dad you’re the Dad I love! Patrick I love you.  You’re fun.  Julia you’re the best and fun.  Michael you’re cute and fun.”


From Monkey in the Middle to Monkey Girl…”Julia, You are the best sister anyone could have.  Without you, I couldn’t do all the cool things you taught me.  I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”


From Baby Monkey to Tiny…”Michael, You’re the best baby in the world.”


From Monkey Girl to Real Man…”Dear Dad, Merry Christmas! Thank you for all you do.  You are the best dad in the whole wide world!!!  I love you! Love, Julia  Dandy Awesome DaBomb!”


From Monkey in the Middle to Real Man…”Dear Dad, You are the best Dad ever.  I’m sorry for clogging the toilets all the time.  But, I wish you a merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” 🙂


From Monkey in the Middle to me…”Dear Mom, You are the best Mom anyone can have in the world!  I hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  I hope you get what you want for Christmas.  Well, merry Christmas again.”  (Cracks me up that he ran out of things to say and just went to “Well, merry Christmas again.” 🙂 )

Then we had two drawings from Baby Monkey for Real Man and I.  His gift to us was to draw our portraits.  Love them.  Totally digging my awesome red jumpsuit and loving Real Man’s rainbow inspired get-up.



  1. You and Real Man look kinda like super heroes in Baby Monkey’s portraits. What great cards. 😀
