We spent the afternoon at Altamonte Mall with both boys making bears at Build-A-Bear workshop. They received a package in the mail this week from Cliff and Beppa in Vidalia. That package included gift cards to Build-A-Bear with a note for Jonah to help Micah make his. We expected a huge crowd to be there but it wasn't really bad. Jonah picked both bears. He got the same bear for them but different colors. The picture below makes me laugh because it looks like Micah is deciding whether or not to approve of Jonah's choice.
If you have been around Jonah much lately, then you know he OBSESSED with all things Star Wars. When we looked online to find the nearest Build-A-Bear, he spotted the Star Wars clothes and immediately decided he wanted to do Star Wars bear. So, after he picked the bear he was going to build, he went straight for the Star Wars clothes. He chose Darth Vader.
And, just to make his day even better, they had the Star Wars theme song that you could purchase to go inside of the bear. If you look two pictures below, you will see the face he made when he heard that. I'm not kidding, the kid loves Star Wars!
We got one of the special recorders to go inside of Micah's bear. We let Jonah make the recording and it is so very sweet. He said "Hey, Micah! It's your big brother Jonah. I love you!" I have a feeling Micah will grow to love that as time passes. He is too little to squeeze the paw now but I can imagine being a treasured possession of his as he grows. I keep squeezing it because it is so sweet!
Dan helped Jonah wash both bears and get them ready to be adopted by our family. Micah slept through all of that.
Micah's bear is as big as he is. It makes me laugh to see this. It also makes me a little sad to think about how small that bear will seem next to him in the not so distant future. He is growing so fast.
Here is Jonah with his new Darth Vader Bear. Dan tried to get him to name it Darth Jonah but Jonah was adamant this he wanted to name his bear Darth Vader. So, Darth Vader it is!
We headed to the food court for a snack. We shared a cinnamon roll. Jonah ate most of it. He LOVED it.
It was a fun day with our family. I love making memories with the three boys I love most!!
