Bits and pieces of our crazy life. Building a home and a family and trying to enjoy the little moments.

More from our Build A Bear evening. Penny was climbing the store, of
course. Both girls got to stuff their bears. Jane loved doing the heart
thing, and you can see that she is making a wonderful wish before
placing it inside the bear. Penny really liked the stuffing machine and
kept going back to stare at it. Jane got a magic noise, and Penny got a
heartbeat placed inside. The bathing area was also a hit, although
Jane now thinks she needs a hairdryer for her bear! Jane looked at a
number of different outfits for her bear, Daddy spied one up high that
she ended up picking. Super bright (to match the bear) with detachable
fairy wings...that light up. Full on awesomeness right there. Penny was
a little overwhelmed at that point (there was a slumber party of older
girls there and a good amount of people in general in the store). It
took awhile to figure out an outfit for the penguin, but she finally
liked the pink dress. She also got a fishing pole with some fish for
hers and Jane got a pair of aviator sunglasses for hers. Jane liked the
shoes, but Mike and I both struggled to get them on the bear's feet
(this style had big feet?), so we went with a different accessory. It was a
fun experience for the kids, and Jane is now looking forward to making
or getting more clothes for her bear. We found matching Minnie Mouse
sister sized chairs on our way out of Sears for a little
break--seriously cute...and two seriously tired little girls! Thanks Uncle Baird, Aunt Amy, and Gram Sandee + Gramp Mike!
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
