The art of building a bear (or in our case, a kitty)

Ryan has been promising Madison that he would take her to Build-a-Bear for two years now. Since we ate lunch at the mall he figured now was as good a time as any. So, here is our Build-a-Bear adventure.

She picked Hello Kitty as her bear. No shock there.......she LOVES Hello Kitty.

She got to help stuff it, she thought that was pretty cool.

All complete. One stuffed bear.

I'm pretty sure her favorite part was being able to "wash" her bear.

She picked Hello Kitty unders. Again, no surprise there :)

While she was dressing her bear I was attempting to distract Hunter so he wouldn't tear the place apart. Here is how our interaction went:
Me: "Hunter, smile for the camera"

Me: "No seriously, smile for the camera"

Me: "Hunter, stop being a monster and smile for the camera"

Me: "I give up, you win"

The end result: One Hello Kitty bear dressed in her Hello Kitty attire.

Madison even got to register her bear with a birthday and everything. She named her Isabelle.

On the way home she even buckled her in so she would be safe. At least I've taught my kids something!

our favorite place! Now we tell Abi she can get new outfits when she's filled her chore chart. It's great bribery!

She needs to come over and have a build a bear (kitty) play date. Alexis has a hello kitty too and we just got a HUGE box of build a bear hand me downs from my nieces that decided they are too old for that stuff anymore (I'm thinking SCORE!!!) So send her on over : )
