Skipping Stones Episode 8 “Girls Night and Candy’s Delight”

Hello friends! I hope you’re all having a lovely Friday. I’ve spent the majority of the day preparing this post for you all, so I hope you enjoy! 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”

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.

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

Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!

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. I don’t really know why I came up with this, but I suppose it was genius to my 10 year old brain. Another costume from the inaugural Halloween Fashion show is this Miss America costume! It obviously used a different dress(was Rose … Continue reading Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!

Starburst’s Driving Playlist ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Starburst

Hello friends! It’s been a while since our last BABAD, eh? Whelp, anyway, it’s time for another one! This one will feature Starburst. Enjoy! Hey guys! It’s me, Starburst. As a mom, I run a lot of errands. Even though I work from home, I still have a lot of time that I spend driving. Sitting in silence for so long would be so boring, so my driving playlists are a lifesaver! Anyway, all that is to say that in this post, I will be sharing 11 songs that I’ve been jamming out to lately in the car! It’s literally … Continue reading Starburst’s Driving Playlist ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Starburst

The Great Stuffie Bakeoff

Hello friends! Today I have a VERY fun post for you all…a bakeoff! With this post, I wanted to go back to my roots and begin with the photos. That’s how I used to to photostories, but now I’ve shifted to mainly writing first. Also, I didn’t edit these photos! Because…they look fairly good and I did NOT feel like editing 70+ photos for today. Enjoy! “Welcome to the Great Stuffie Bakeoff! I’ll be your host, Berry Blueberry!” “Meet our judges, Summer, Treasure, and Starburst! Anything you three have to say?” “I’m really excited to try all the food!” Summer … Continue reading The Great Stuffie Bakeoff

Christmas Caroling ~ A Photoshoot

Hello friends! It’s getting really close to Christmas, so I won’t mention how many days are left. (We’re getting a little too close for my taste). Anyway, today the Stones starred in a Christmas Caroling photoshoot for all of you to enjoy. I hope you like it! “Kids!” Mommy melodiously called. “It’s almost time to leave for Christmas caroling!” “Oh, but we aren’t ready!” Sandy frantically replied. “Please let us practice one more song?” “Alright,” Daddy agreed. “But make it quick.” Sandy tapped along to the beat and then lead the clan in song. Hark! the herald angels sing:“Glory to … Continue reading Christmas Caroling ~ A Photoshoot
