Weekend Fun at Build a Bear
This past weekend we went to the Build a Bear Workshop in the Bangor Mall and had fun making Deja's latest friend, Snow Angel. Deja had saved up her allowance money and got her cute little friend a very nice sparkly angel outfit and some matching white shoes...
It was fun for me because we had gotten an awesome coupon for any $12.00 animal for free or $12 off a larger animal. Deja fell in love with the cute little dog that was already $12 so her new furry friend was free-and she used her money she'd saved up to buy the clothing.
Build a Bear is lots of fun, and lots of kids were having fun making their animals, buying additional clothing and interacting with the elves hidden throughout the store. (Deja got a little pamphlet that had a black dot, you swiped the black dot over a spot on the elf and they talked to you)
When we got back home she continued to have fun by going online and registering her animal and playing in Build a Bearville, which kept her busy for several hours. I can't believe how much fun it was for me as a mom to watch her make her stuffed animal...geez, I wish we'd had this when I was a kid! Hmmm, wonder if anyone would say anything to see a forty something mom making her OWN stuffed animal... (guess I can always say it's for the kids!)
Also, my little grandson decided to visit me again and smile for the camera as he sat in his walker. It's too funny, because he goes everywhere, mostly backwards right now--but is determined to find a way to get what he wants... so it looks like I really need to baby proof the house now! He will be 6 months already on Dec. 5th, time sure flies!
