We had a variety of things on our "social" calendar this weekend. No way we were going to ever get it all done, especially when all of our sitters had their own busy agendas. We kept Avery's first sleepover invitation w/ cousin Kennedy Friday night, which turned out to be GREAT. She loved getting her toes done and playing dress up and made it all night w/out tears (that we know of). The boys and I enjoyed the evening in The Woodlands w/ Steven & Candice and then we met up w/ Avery Saturday midmorning to enjoy a Christmas present - Build A Bear gift certificates. I have always heard about Build A Bear and I now understand why every child should do it at least once in their life. It really is so personal... everything the child wants in their own teddy bear. My only regret is that we went on a Saturday. It was pretty crowded which made keeping up with 3 curious toddlers more difficult than normal, but we made it through. Wes has determined he is no longer made for malls, especially crazy jam packed ones, but at least Uncle Steve came along so that we had one adult per child.
As for the Build A bears, Austin chose the Camo bear and dressed him in a fishing outfit and mini Timberlands. His name is Shocker. Avery chose an adorable bear w/ a red
sequins dress, bloomers, sparkly shoes and a sequins purse. Her name is Allie. Caleb chose (somewhat) the longhorn. His name is Roookie and he's decked out for his first game.
