My Mom has been wanting to take the kids to Build-a-Bear since forever, so we decided to go for Ben’s birthday. Mom helped Ben pick out his rabbit and the clothes. I thought we were just going to do Ben this time around (because it was his birthday), but then Gracie batted her eyes at Sweetie and Paw Paw and guess who ended up with a bear of her own.
Here is Ben, stuffing his bunny.
And then giving the bunny brains and love (and other stuff I don’t remember) by playing with the little heart.
Making a wish before he put the heart into his bunny.
All stuffed and ready to go!
Gracie was next in line, although Noah was doing a little shopping of his own. He picked out some crazy looking stuffed monkey and tried to get in on the action. “Hey guys, wait up! I’m coming!”
Ben thought Noah’s monkey business was pretty hilarious. Grace just looks annoyed that he was interrupting her bear stuffing time.
Gracie testing out the snuggliness of her bear. “Pretty dood”
Next it was time to wash, dry, & brush their new friends.
Sweetie helped them to dress bear & bunny. Ben decided on a Spurs outfit.
And Grace went for a bit more color because, you know, ‘the rainbow bear was looking a little bit drab.
Ben & “Fuzzy”
Grace & “Sparkles” who has since been renamed “Sprinkles” & then “Share Bear” & then “Cheer Bear”.
Thank you, Sweetie & Paw Paw for our new friends!
