I will be introducing a new bear, so keep an eye out for her! Periwinkle puts on a nice dress. She’s going out tonight, for the first time in a long time. Being a mom of seven, she doesn’t normally get very much time to herself. Tonight, however, tonight is girls’ night. Her sisters and friends are going to drop their kids off at her house. These women have been looking forward … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 8 “Girls Night and Candy’s Delight”

Can I get my ‘creative’ badge now?” Counselor Peri admires the painting. “Yes, of course!

Hello friends! I realize I’ve never really done much for the BAB’s birthdays on here. It’s just overwhelming. Anyway, Cam and Stella’s “birthday” is on Christmas, but let’s just say that Cam’s birthday is today, just for fun. Wanna see how he celebrates his birthday? “Are you ready to go?” Stella asks. Cam nods. It’s his birthday, but he doesn’t want a big celebration this year. Instead, he wants to spread Christmas cheer with his friends. Cam and Stella are going Christmas caroling! The first family is their next-door neighbors…the Stones! Hark! the herald angels singGlory to the newborn KingPeace … Continue reading Christmas Caroling with Cam

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

Hello friends! Can you believe it’s our fourth Halloween fashion show? I can’t! The bears had a lot of fun dressing up this year! They can’t wait to model their costumes for you all. First up, we have our first BAB, Brownie! She’s wearing the first-ever Halloween costume for the BABs! She’s dressed as a talk show host.
