• Happy Arbor Day!

    April 27, 2011

    Hi everyone,

    Did you know Arbor Day is on Saturday? I LOVE Arbor Day cause we each get to take a baby tree home from school! I actually have three different trees in my yard that I’ve planted myself! One is a pine tree (and its sap is really sticky so you can’t really touch it) and I’ve got a maple tree that turns pink and red in the fall and a red bud tree that has cool heart-shaped leaves. The red bud is the oldest one and it has little pink-ish red flowers on it in the spring that go away and then the leaves come out. I just love that it’s got heart-shaped leaves! My family loves trees so Arbor Day is pretty special at our house because we get to pick that special spot for our new tree every year.

    And to celebrate Arbor Day, everyone in Bearville™ is getting a special surprise gift. So visit the Friendship Forest to get yours. I know what it is and I can’t wait till you find out!

    P.S. – Don’t forget to catch the very first episode of BE News tomorrow, only on buildabearville.com!

  • Easter!

    April 20, 2011

    Hey everyone!

    Yay! Easter is this weekend! I hope it’s sunny because I got a beautiful new yellow dress and I can’t wait to wear it. I have some cute white sandals that would match perfectly, but I also found some Mary Jane’s in my closet that I’d totally forgotten about, so, maybe I’ll wear those instead? What are you wearing this Easter?

    I also can’t wait for the Easter Egg Hunt! My family always has a really big one and I’m the best at finding the eggs. After the hunt my family goes inside to have a brunch and we play an egg cracking game. It’s kind of a tradition. Two people pick the egg of their choice then hold it in their hand and gently start tapping the other person’s egg with their own. The point is to try to crack the other person’s egg first. My dad rocks at this game! What are your Easter traditions?

    Again, you only have a few days left to enter our awesome sweepstakes. You could win a trip to NYC and a chance to host one of our shows on Bearville!

    Happy Easter!
