Uncle J. gave the kids gift certificates to Build-a-Bear for Christmas. We braved the mall crowds today to go. We waited in line over 30 minutes to get our bears stuffed. But it was fun. Olivia picked a pink cat which she dressed like Ariel and named Princess Mermaid. Noah slept on my shoulder while in line, so I picked a puppy with a cowboy outfit. When he woke up he wanted nothing to do with dressing the puppy, so we picked a surfboard and sunglasses instead. We named him Gingerbread. The only holiday baking I did this year was making gingerbread cookies, and Noah loves them, so there is actually a reason for the name, other than I thought it was cute.

Once we got home and Olivia got playing with Grandma R., Gingerbread very quickly turned into Eric, Princess Mermaid's love and betrothed. Poor Noah.

    How fun! Wish I was more creative when naming the Build a Bears. We have a Snowman named Frosty, a Big Bird named Big Bird, and a Teddy Bear named Teddy. Bwahaha.
