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

Easter Bible Photoshoot {feat. the Caramel siblings}

Hello friends! Happy Easter! I had a lot of ideas for this post, but ultimately I decided on this…a photoshoot of the rabbits captioned by Bible verses about Easter. I think this is a nice mixture of cute photos and a reminder of what today is all about. These guys are excited to share the resurrection story with you all! Swirl reminds everyone that every bunny is welcome here! Petal and Oswald remind you all that no bunny loves you like Jesus. From Matthew 28: 1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came … Continue reading Easter Bible Photoshoot {feat. the Caramel siblings}

The Disney Staycation ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Oswald

Hello friends! I feel like it’s been forever since our last BABAD post, but I guess it was only in January. Anyway, I decided it was long past time for another, so here you go! (fun fact, apparently that’s how I’ve introduced the last 4 BABADs.) I’m really happy with today’s segment. It’s one I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I think it turned out alright. Enjoy! “Are you okay back there kids?” “Why wouldn’t we be okay?” Oswald asked. “I still don’t know why you won’t tell me where you’re going.” “You’ll see,” The Caramel family walked … Continue reading The Disney Staycation ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat.

The Valentine’s Party

Hello friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! Want to see a fun party with the Small-fries? I sure do! (also for some reason this post literally took an entire day to make so please like it) Here’s a photo of the room before any party guests arrived. The refreshment table. There’s also this lovely corner filled with flowers and a guitar. Oh look! The first guests are arriving. The Caramel siblings snap a quick photo together. They’re all dressed up for the occasion. Chip and Sandy rush to greet them. “We’re your host and hostess!” Sandy smiles. “Not by choice…” Chip mutters. … Continue reading The Valentine’s Party

Winter Bearlympic Opening Ceremony

Hello friends! With this post, I think I’m officially out of my blogging slump. (at least, I hope so…) Today we’re kicking off the 2022 Winter Bearlympics! The Small-Frys have worked really hard to make this opening ceremony special for you all, so I hope you enjoy. To kick off the ceremonies, a figure skater emerges onto the rink. She gracefully glides over the ice. Let’s see what shape she made! Oh! It’s a lovely heart! Now another figure skater appears. Let’s kick off the 2022 Bearlympics! Now, two of our athletes will be singing the national anthem from their … Continue reading Winter Bearlympic Opening Ceremony

Hello friends! Today is very special day because we reached 400 followers! I don’t want to be super sentimental because I want to focus on you guys! I couldn’t have done this without you all! So I decided…why not host a blog party? The bears are all celebrating too. Let’s take a look at their celebrations before getting into the blog party. Cali: Hi! It’s me, Cali! Welcome to our 400 follower party! Cali: Would you like some food? Waffle made it himself! Cali: Yes! We even decorated for 400 followers! Cali: Hey boys! How are you celebrating? Mischief: Well, … Continue reading 400 Follower Blog Party

Christmas Caroling with Cam

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
