Today, in the US, we celebrate George Washington’s birthday. It’s also sometimes called President’s Day. When the US government started celebrating our first president’s birthday, it was the first time the government honored an American citizen! It’s very close to Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, which is February 12. It’s also Black History Month! There are just so many cool things that happen in February!
I think I also mentioned this before, but February is also the shortest month of the year, even in Leap Years! And yes, this year is a Leap Year. Normally this month is only 28 days long, but Leap Year adds a day making it 29 days long. I’ll have to find a cool thing to do this month so I can remember it forever!
Hmm…Got any ideas?
Best month evAH!

CELE-BEAR-ATE good times, COME ON!
Hey party people!
Wahoo! Today kicks off our yearlong Friends Count celebration! We’re celebrating over 100 million furry friends made AND our 15th birthday together – two VERY big accomplishments! But, as you know, Build-A-Bear Workshop celebrates a lot of things all year, every year.
It’s important to celebrate accomplishments, whether they are big or small. There is a Bearism (a bear-ish quote or saying) about celebrating. It goes like this: Big or small, always cele-bear-ate your accomplishments. It means that even though it’s always great to celebrate big things, like graduating or winning the big game, it’s also important to recognize when you do great smaller things, like when you get an A on a test you studied really hard for or practicing piano every day for a month! So while it’s always good to work hard, it’s also good to recognize when you do good things. Enjoy it!
Keep on partying, people!

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! Do you have a Valentine yet? My dad usually asks me to be his Valentine, and he gets me a little box of chocolates and puts them on my plate at breakfast. They’re my favorite chocolates in the world! Most of them are dark chocolate. But he gets my mom milk chocolates because those are her favorite.
Are you going to do anything at school for Valentine’s Day? My school usually has a little party where we eat cookies and pink juice and pass out our Valentines. I made mine out of all my craft stuff that I already had. Construction paper, glitter glue, markers, stickers, and some are even decoupage (that’s like a kind of clear glaze you paint over things to make them stick together and make them shiny).
Hope you have an extra sweet Valentine’s Day!
Talk to ya later!
