Santa Monkey is Coming to Town

Ricky the Santa Monkey

Originally uploaded by jamiereeves.

Santa Claus and his elves arrived at Bellevue Center mall today but the question everyone is asking is “Will Ricky the Santa monkey be there?” or did PETA shut down Ricky’s tour at the mall?

The hubby, sporting his annual winter bearded man look, took Caitlin to the mall last December and returned with this picture and one happy 2-year-old. I laughed so hard I started crying and it takes a lot to make me laugh like that!

    Hello there! I have written a book that helps parents answer the age old, unavoidable (slightly horrifying) question, “Is Santa real?” . The book is the conversation that I had with my two oldest that were ready to know the truth but the plot twist I developed, made the moment more memorable and magical than I could have ever imagined! I would love to do a giveaway with your readers. I have attached a Press Release and feel free to check out our website for illustrations, blurbs from the book, and videos of me sharing my “reveal” stories. Grab a tissue!

    Thank you so much for your consideration!
