Our youngest granddaughter will be six in a couple of weeks. She has been having a vacation at grandma's house this week. When I asked her what she would like for her birthday, she immediately said she would like to go to 'Build-a-Bear'. So that is what we did.
We went to the Build-a-Bear store in Appleton WI. She first received a birthday name tag.
After lots of thought she picked out the stuffed animal she wanted. Hello Kitty was her choice.
She helped fill stuffing in the kitty. Then she warmed its heart and gave it a kiss.
With the heart placed in the kitty, it was sewn up.
Then she was told to give her kitty a great big hug, which she gladly did.
She gave it a bath,
and dressed it. Now 'Sophia' was ready to bring home to love forever.
Oh to be six.
And that's the way it is..................
