Build A Bear Outing

I surprised Kendyll with a trip to Build A Bear recently. She was super-excited, to say the least. It was a first for both of us. We started at the wall where all the unstuffed animals are, and they are laid out in order from least expensive to most expensive. We browsed through them all, and as we made our way down the wall, what does Kendyll's little eyes see? A JONAS BROTHERS dog! And, of course, it was at the end of the wall, which meant it was the most expensive one. I tried to persuade her to choose a lovely pink bear. Pink is her favorite color afterall. But, she held fast to her choice. So, after the choice was made, the real fun began. Here she is stuffing the dog...
More stuffing...

Adding a heart inside the dog. The salesgirl had her do all kinds of funny things with the heart, like put it on her eye.
Then Kendyll kissed it before it was sewn up in the dog.
Next was the bath and blow dry.
Finally, Kendyll registered her new pet on the computer. It's birth name: Lucy Roxie Jonas Brother Dog. Love it!
The new pet owner!

The icing on the cake happened when I was paying. Kendyll, all on her own, walked up to me and said, "Thank you Mommy." It warmed my heart because I know that she truly meant it!
