Sock Monkey’s Christmas Train Outdoor Light Display

23 Dec

Here’s Sock Monkey’s Christmas Train in better days:


Tom and I will never forget the great afternoon we had making this thing. It was a warm November afternoon and Hokie football traffic buzzed by all day. We had big dreams of making a whole train. But so far we’ve still got just this locomotive, which has gotten a little saggy and mistreated and the lights don’t work so great. I think the wheels may have “turned” at one point.

    That is adorable. I love reading your site. By the way, Sock Monkey had his photo taken with Santa at South Coast Plaza in Orange County, California. The photog took us out of line since they didn’t need a baby wrangler to get Sock Monkey to sit still on Santa’s lap. Some people were indignant. They just don’t understand Sock Monkey love.

    We also saw Cece’s new book in the mall. Wonderful!

    Happy New Year to you all!
