November 22nd, 2009

tn_2009-11-21  Marlowe in Santa OutfitIt’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Mom found some Build-a-Bear clothes at Goodwill today. Some of them were Santa Claus clothes! I can look like Santa for a while now! I feel very festive in my new jacket! There was a hat too. I even have black boots somewhere—and although I don’t have red pants—I could dress up like Santa! Hm! The possibilities! Maybe I should say ho, ho, ho!

My mom feels better. The ideas that you gave me helped. She likes chicken soup—she said that it was nice that I thought of her! I told her that it was part of my job as her bear and she smiled!

In the bag of clothes that Mom found at Goodwill, there was a very large (at least in bear terms) red sweater. It turned out to be Build-a-Bear. Mom gave it to Charlotte, who is one of the biggest girls that we have here. It has a white heart on it so it’s not suited too well for a boy bear. tn_2009-11-21 Marlowe and Charlotte

What do you like the most about Christmas? I think I like the Christmas lights the most. I hope I get to go here this winter. Mom saw the advertisement while she was at our local mall.  There is supposed to even be a horse drawn wagon ride. I think it sounds great!

Robinson says that he likes Christmas music, while Milton says that he likes all the Christmas trees and their ornaments. Chloe says that she likes the glittery dresses and the shiny tinsel that people put on trees. Our house isn’t set up for Christmas quite yet though. Mom says that it will probably start after Thanksgiving. Our grandma believes in one holiday at a time! Mom says that if it was Christmas all year long it wouldn’t mean the same, but I’m not quite so sure about that. I don’t think you can ever have enough sparkly lights! I think a big part of it is that Mom doesn’t appreciate Christmas quite as much as your average bear due to her years of retail experience! Maybe this year will be different! We can only hope.

  1. I wonder why most people want to sent their Buildabers to Goodwill to get rid them ? At least they get new homes.
