the bear that Caroline built

Caroline got a gift certificate for her birthday to Build-A-Bear (by request, of course). After church we headed out to Opry Mills to redeem it. To say she was excited is an understatement. We had never made a bear before so we had to ask for help. She picked out a bear, stuffed it, kissed the heart twice before she put it in, gave it a "bath," typed up a birth certificate and dressed it in a summery outfit and crocs!

It was so much fun! I definitely see why so many people love it. We walked thru the mall and there were Build-A-Bear boxes everywhere. Here are some of my favorite pics I took....

We had an awesome service at church today. My neck was hurting really bad when I got there and by the end of the service, it was feeling much better. I think just being in the presence of the Lord was healing. Such a blessing to be in God's presence.

Have a great day!

I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). John 10:10 (Amplified Bible)

Caroline looks like she had lots of fun...and I am sure you did too! Never been to build-a-bear...and with two boys, I doubt I get there anytime soon! Cute pictures.

Also-amazing what going to praise the Lord will do for you, huh?
