HE'S HERE!!! HE'S HERE!!!!!

The boy had just walked in the door from work. I was finishing up a conference call (THANK GOODNESS I work from home!) and my doorbell rang. I took one look at the boy and I said, it's him, it's him, get my camera!!!

The UPS man was a little overwhelmed with my reaction as I opened the door, but I explained what it was all about and of course he understood.
The boy held the box as I documented his arrival, but I couldn't wait to see how he was doing.
We opened him up, not a bubble had been popped, but boy was he thirsty.
We quickly got him a beverage, he took to the Minnesota brew quickly (but Leesie, he burped really loud, did you have him read Miss Manners? I have a copy, not to worry).
We also have some friends here to introduce him to, I think they will get along smashingly, we have been preparing them for monkey's arrival, they have all kinds of places they cannot wait to show him, more on that later, just wanted to let you all know that he has arrived safe and sound!

His first arrival! This is a special day!! I can't wait until he comes to visit me (although it seems like I won't get him here in Vegas until the year 2010) and am super excited to start reading about and seeing all his adventures!!

OMG!!! I'm soooooo excited I can barely stand it!

Can't wait to see what you and Monkey do! I haven't been this excited since...well I don't know when!

J said...

Yay! I'm so glad he made it.

(And so jealous that you have him! I didn't get myself on the list and am severely regretting it!)

I didn't get on the list this trip either. We are closing on our first house and are moving within a month so I didn't think Monkey would like to help us move. That would be boring for him.

That picture of the UPS man is classic. Can't wait to see what Monkey gets up to on his first stop!

I knew that Monkey was a drinker. I just had a feeling deep down inside! :)

I nearly snarfed my AM when I saw the look on the UPS man's face!

Good to know he likes to drink! He & I will have belly up @ Bobby Van's when he arrives in BH this summer!
So many good times ahead for little monkey I can hardly wait!

So glad Monkey made it to his first stop safely. I can't wait to see what you have in store for him.

I think it might be a good idea to post on the header where he's arrived at (like, Monkey's arrived in Minnie) so we all know without checking back on the list. Just a thought.
