My little weekday friend just had her 4th birthday and to celebrate, Abbey and I took her to the the mall this morning, to Build-A-Bear Workshop so she could make a special bear to love.
After choosing her bear body, Ella headed to the fluff machine. Using a foot pedal, she pumped until her bear was stuffed just right. Then she picked out a heart and helped insert it into her bear just before sewing closed. Finally, off to the computer to prepare the birth certificate for "Princess Bear".
How did we guess that Ella would choose a pink Bear with pretty bows and a shirt with a big heart...
cause she is all girly-girl!
