I went over to my new favourite store that I shopped at yesterday and had spied these nice spring flowers. I picked out the colours I wanted and the vase and came home and put this arrangement together for her. Don't you love that vase? I love pussy willows.
Spring break starts for Loopy tomorrow. Eleven days of no school! I'm sure we'll visit the Build-a-Bear Workshop that just opened in our city. Here she is on Grand Opening day, holding her latest creation, "Berry". It was too early in the morning for Mama and Gramma, we ended up in Starbucks after all that stuffin' and lovin'.
Berry's name comes from the local berries grown in this areas called "Saskatoon berries" and she can live alongside all of the other bears from BABW we've been collecting over the years... they're all named after the places we got them:
Miami and Orlando - the twins from our trip to Florida in 2000
Eddie (a gift for Macy) - from West Edmonton Mall, 2003
Callie - from Calgary, 2004
Navy - named after Chicago's Navy Pier, 2006
Kiss-im-mee - from our Valentine's trip to Florida in 2007
Notice that she's dressed up to bake some Saskatoon berry pie!
