Build a Bear

For Christmas Grandma and Grandpa Bruschke got the kids "Build a Bear" Gift Certificates. It was a first for all of us, so we enlisted the help of my sisters Becky and Liz and boy was I glad that they were there. There definitely has to be a one-to-one ratio of adult to kid when you go. Bailey, Spencer and Natalie

And finally Spencer with his penguin. Somehow I didn't get the kids with their finished products. Each stuffed animal was fully outfited from head to toe. Bailey's bear was a bride, Natalie's bunny had a cute top with a skirt and Spencer's was spiderman. The kids loved the experienced and I loved that the cost didn't come out of my pocket (my-oh-my are those expensive stuffed animals!). Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

So cute! I got one for each of my younger sisters like five years ago and it was really fun! The kids look like they had a great time! You should try to get a picture of the kids with their dolls! I'd like to see how cool they turned out!

Those things are expensive. I keep wanting to take Micah because I think it would be fun for him, but the price always puts me off. I bet they love them though. It is a cute store and they make the process a lot of fun for the kids.
