Back to School Portraits 2022

Hello friends! Can you believe the 2022 school year is already in full swing? I can’t! Anyway, the school-aged Build-A-Bears got together to take school photos. I always love doing this traditional post. I hope you like seeing these pictures! Here’s a picture of the whole group. We have quite a big group this year! Our only tenth grader in the bunch, Gisselle. The sixth grade class looks very similar to last year’s class. I think that the fifth grade is the largest. Azura is a new addition this year! Our fourth grade. Finally, our third grade class. Alright, now … Continue reading Back to School Portraits 2022

DIY Weekly Schedule Board

Hello friends! Today we have a craft. Enjoy! Cali and Swirl wander around the main hall. “What do you think we’re doing today?” Cali asks. “I don’t know, why don’t we check the schedule?” Swirl suggests. “That’s not very helpful…” Cali starts. “It’s from two years ago!” “Hm, you’re right. We need something more accurate.” Swirl decides. What would really help these two is a schedule board! That’s what we will be making in this post. You will need a corkboard(I got this from Dollar Tree), a pen, some sticky notes, and a pair of scissors. I thought this corkboard … Continue reading DIY Weekly Schedule Board

Hitting The Slopes ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! Today I have a cute little photoshoot of Cali skiing. Enjoy! She looks confident as she begins at the top of the mountain. Nice start. Look at how straight her feet are.

That was some beautiful skiing out there. Miss Stone! How do you feel about your skiing today? “Uh, I feel good.

Now, two of our athletes will be singing the national anthem from their … Continue reading Winter Bearlympic Opening Ceremony

Swirl’s Secret Santa

Hello friends! Today it’s time for the Small-fry’s Christmas gift exchange! This story is essentially two parts, selecting the gift and then the exchange. It follows Swirl, so enjoy! I stared at the slip of paper in my hand. “Cam Johnson,” was written on it in green ink. “What on Earth should I get for Cam?”  You see, the name on the paper was the person I had to buy a gift for. This year, we decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange instead of getting a gift for every one of our friends.  I laughed at that idea. … Continue reading Swirl’s Secret Santa
