Build a Bear, another quirk

OK, I got up early this morning and started cleaning the things I have procrastinated on. I came on my box of Bear clothes. I noticed that my Bears were a couple of holidays behind. Usually the grandkids come and change them into the appropriate clothing but they have not been around as much. So here is another quirk.
Jeff and I bought ourselves some bears at Build a Bear. I am confessing that sometimes we sneak in while in SLC to buy our little buddies a new outfit. It is so fun. You can appease your desire to buy clothes very cheaply here. They are all so cute. There are so many styles of shoes and accessories. So many holiday and special events outfits. So now you know. I have talked Jeff into making a bear clothes rod today so I can keep the cute things hanging up and not hidden away in a box. Check out today's outfit. Maybe I will post my bears on the blog and what they are wearing and doing that day. Oh my...I worry about myself sometimes. Any way the grandkids will love it. (and don't tell me you wouldn't love those little pumpkin shoes).

o.k...Those are the cutest dang bears I've every seen! I always thought since my girls were grown, and my grandchildrens parents...... already took them to "Build a Bear", that I would never be able to grace the doors of that business. You Mary, have now given me the courage to do so!!!

I am going to tell everyone a secret. Although some of the grandkids know. Jeff loves, well maybe likes to go shopping for clothes for his bear too. I'm tellin ya, getting old isn't all bad.

haha mom! we were in b.a.b. twice this week b/c the girls earned some prizes there. i was looking around thinking "hmm, mother's day?" but decided against it b/c i was SURE you couldn't really love bears that much. also b/c i've noticed that you haven't been keeping up on them like you used to. i thought you were over them.

then quirk #7 shows up...

I love it and ditto to what Jonna said. I think that's 'sweet' about Jeff - wish Bob would loosen up a little! That is just darn cute!

I still dress my bear that you gave me for my birthday several years ago. However it's been a while since Bethy Bear has had a new outfit. Hhmmm... maybe next time you're in town we could go bear shopping. I'd love to do the build a bear thing with the grandkids again, but we'd have to reserve the store for a day with all the grandkids we've accumulated. Fun Stuff. It's good to have quirks.
