It's BeeBee's 3rd Birthday day on Sunday (it's TBone's 7th bday too... more on that later). I'm not a huge lover of birthday parties. I usually don't do anything until the kid turns four and then I was thinking I'd only do parties every other year. Even that seems like too much for me though so we'll see.
However, our cutest ever little neighbor girls (ages 11 and 9) brought over probably about $1000 worth of Build A Bear clothes the other day for BeeBee. They said they don't play with them anymore so they wondered if Beebs might want it all (they do this from time to time with all kinds of things... it's how BeeBee has amassed 49% of all her girly stuff). Beebs was so excited but they didn't bring over any kind of a bear to dress with all the fantastic clothes (how dare they!) so I had a lightbulb moment. I called my friend Anne to see if she & her little girl, Beebs' best frienemy, wanted to head down to the local Build A Bear for "Beebs' Birthday." And hot dang Charlie, we set a date.
We first ate some lunch at Johnny Rockets. The waitress was cute & brought out a free ice cream sundae for BB and a little dish of ice cream for Sarah. There was no one else there... I'm pretty sure they were just bored. Totally nice tho. I only took a brazillion pics of these two eating said ice cream though. I'm not sure I quite captured the moment. Oh well, you'll just have to try and imagine what it looked like.
I kept saying that some day we'll be showing these pictures at their Senior Roast or something.
Then it was off to Build-A-Bear!! I had never been before. It was pretty much what I expected. We actually ended up building a bunny. Here is BB giving her heart a kiss & rub on her cheek for.... for.... hmmm... the lady said, but I can't remember. BB did all that stuff, Sarah flat out refused. Lollerz.
The finished product of all BB's hard work.... Coco the Bunny! (and her semi-immodest outfit)
Here are the two party animals (pun intended, btw). Sarah named hers Teddy Bear. I thought it was quite clever myself.
I think the girls had fun. I know Anne & I had a good time.
Side Story: When we first got to the mall Anne got a phone call from the Vice Principal saying that her middle son (the one TBone's age) had punched a kid in the face. She was mortified. He was going to be in the VP's office for a while, they had talked about what had happened, etc and he would be heading back to class in a little while. As we were leaving the mall the school called again.... he had punched another kid in the face. The second kid? Tbone.
That's all the "umph" I've got. Sorry to disappoint, Katie.
