Build-A-Bear

This activity was mostly planned as a special treat for Chloe and Camden. When we started the adoption process (before even being matched with Asa) the kids were told that when their new brother came home, they'd all get to build their own bear. Asa didn't really know what to think, but he watched the bigger kids and joined in.

Allyson is a little big for bears, now, so she took pictures and
helped the kids choose their animals.

Asa was fond of the krapo (frog) but eventually decided
on a bear like Camden.


He took the "stuffing" job very seriously.




Everyone had a really nice time.
Daddy even got to spend some time in the Mac store,
so it was a treat for him, too!

He looks so cute in his little 'big boy' outfit. And hey, I kind of like the frog. I can't wait to take Richnightder and Jerome there someday in the future.

Love it. Just love it. Thanks for little glances at what it's like to finally be together. Home. **sigh**

Love the way he's clinging to you! This looks like a wonderful memory and a great activity for the kids.

Someday... someday...
