Made With Love

Darcy over at Life With My 3 Boybarians is hosting a new project that is called  Project 52.  This is a 52-week photo challenge that I've decided to take this year.  We will have a theme each week for this challenge.

 

It’s week # 2 and the theme is

“Made with Love”

While we were having lunch at the mall this past week, the kids were so excited to see the Build-A-Bear character walking around.  So naturally they wanted to “Build-a-Bear!

The first thing they had to do was choose an un-stuffed bear from a very large selection.  Decisions, decisions…

But finally they did, and now it was time to stuff them!

My favorite part of building a bear is the “heart ceremony”.  Here the lady at the store that was helping them, was telling them to rub the heart, and make a wish!

And now the bear is filled with so much love!

Once she is stuffed and complete, it’s time for a quick bath!

Kayla named her bear Isabella.

And now the fun part, picking out a new outfit.  So here is Isabella with her new dress and big smile!

A bear truly “made with love”!

How fun, and what cute pictures! Don't tell anyone, but my oldest still sleeps with a pig that he made at one of these places over 10years ago--he's in high school now. So I know those bears are going to be very well loved!

Dusty Coyote said...

Such great pictures and I LOVE that you had your camera with you and weren't too self-conscious to shoot pictures. I sometimes feel to shy to take photos when I'm out and about-I gotta get over it!

Christine said...

Love it! Those bears will be prized for years to come. What a great memory.

You have such adorable children! And such great photos! My sister put together a cat Build-a-Bear at the Boyd Bear headquarters in TN several years ago. So much fun!

Cute pics! I was thinking of BAB too, when I saw this week's theme. However, we don't need anymore BABs in the house. LOL!

Darci said...

Adorable pics - the kids look so natural! We are just getting into BAB with our kids. We've done it twice now and they love it. Thanks for visiting me!

I love Build-a-Bear! When my brother was deployed to Kuwait and my now-husband was stationed 7 hours from me, my sister-in-law and I made military bears to keep them close to our hearts =) I can't wait to take my and my husband's own kids there one day!

Ruth said...

Love, love, love :)

Kristal said...

So sweet... my kids have been there once, but never my youngest. Way out of our price range.

deb duty said...

These are so sweet, Susan! Great captures!

Gina Kleinworth said...

So cute- I have never take my girls to the store to do that. They love bears - it would be hard for them to choose with that kind of selection. They do really enjoy the kits to make them at home though.

Yuè said...

cute photos and adorable kids. thanks for the visit!

Trish said...

How beautiful, looks like you guys had a fabulous time. Love your pics!!

April said...

Both of my children have a "build-a-bear" that they hand picked when they were very small. We still have them today, my kids are 6 and 10. There's just something special about picking it all out yourself, from the heart.

Great captures!

Praying!
Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

What a great memory to have of a special day. I love each of the pictures, but my favorite is the last one. The scripture you have on your banner, is one of my absolute favorites. Blessings.

So sweet!

I've been to Build-A-Bear one time with my littlest sister and I enjoyed it so much! I love that you can record your voice for the bear, too.

They're definitely filled with love! ♥

Sheila @ Seasoned Joy said...
