Josh and the girls right before we put them to bed.
For months now, we have been asking the girls what they would like for their birthday and/or Christmas. The only thing they have both said over and over, is they want new honey (teddy) bears. When they told us this for the second or third time, Josh and I decided that we would take them to Build-a-Bear and let them pick out whatever bear and outfit they would like. Claire has said from the very beginning that she wants a pink bear, because that is her favorite color and spotted hers right away. Lillian took a little longer to choose her perfect bear. Once she spotted the the purple bear with hearts and peace signs, it was love at first sight.
They waited to patiently for their turn.
Before you can close up your bear, you have to kiss a heart and fill your bear with love.
For lunch we headed to Red Robin, another favorite of the girls. They each ordered their own lunch, chicken fingers and french fries, but we skipped on dessert since we had cake waiting for us at home.
They received some fun games and scooters from Grandma Pattie and Grandpa Jim, which have already been put together and taken for a test drive.
Claire is modeling her jewels from Grandpa Mark. They have been worn all evening long.
