DIY Dream Catchers

Hello friends! I’m Stella, and I’m going to be showing you how to make dream catchers today. You will need a round object (I used a key ring), embroidery floss, and beads. Begin by cutting a length of floss to wrap around your ring. Secure it to the ring. I did this by putting it inside the key ring and also tying it to it. Then you can add some beads to finish it off! There’s a lot of other touches you can add to this, but I was running out of time. I think it turned out really cute, … Continue reading DIY Dream Catchers

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

Hot Cocoa Party

Hello friends! Happy Monday! If I was doing my normal Blogmas posts we’d be halfway done by now. But we’re doing 31 days! So we’ve still got 18 days left! Today, the Small-Fry girls had a hot cocoa party. It was Cherie’s idea, so she’s taking care of all the hostess duties. Look at the hot cocoa station she made. There’s hot cocoa, mugs, toppings, and cookies! Sandy is a little disappointed that she isn’t in charge. The other Stone girls are just excited for hot cocoa. Oh, look! The first guest is arriving. “Welcome to our party! Feel free … Continue reading Hot Cocoa Party

Haunted House ~ BABF’s Halloween Special 2021

Hello friends! Happy Halloween! Today is the last day of Halloween week, which is sad. But, it’s also good because after Halloween comes Thanksgiving, and then comes Christmas! I have big Holiday plans this year. Also, I’m very excited to share today’s post with you all. I had this idea while preparing last year’s Halloween photostory. I really like the concept of today’s post, and I hope I executed it well. I give you…a Haunted House! “Please!” I begged. “A haunted house seems a bit scary for you guys. I don’t want you guys to get scared,” Mommy replied. I … Continue reading Haunted House ~ BABF’s Halloween Special 2021

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!
