A Big Weekend

I thought that Elise could use some extra TLC this weekend, so rather than begin painting her room, I decided to do some more fun things with her instead. The painting can wait, because we won't have the new furniture for a few more months anyway.

I planned a great, fun-filled weekend for her. We began by going shopping for new clothes, to Build-a-Bear, out to eat, and to the baseball game yesterday. We completed Elise's new spring/summer wardrobe. Nothing from last year fits, with the exception of just a few shirts. We bought all new shorts, capris, tanks, shirts, and shoes. Here she is wearing one of her new outfits.


After we finished shopping, we headed to Build-a-Bear. I told her that she could pick any new animal she wanted. They had a fun assortment that included a new elephant, a new pink sparkly bear, turtle, chickie, bunny rabbit, leopard, etc. In spite of the great selection, Elise wanted the simplest, smallest, and most inexpensive brown bear. I was really surprised! Here she is with her bear while she waited in line to have her new friend stuffed.


And here she is rubbing her bear's heart on her nose for good luck.


And giving her bear a bath...


Dressing her bear...


And the finished product!


Elise loves her Crocs, so I thought it was cute that she got a pair of Crocs for her bear.

Tonight Elise will have some quality time with her Pa Pa while Jamie and I go to a wedding.

We will finish off Elise's special weekend tomorrow by going to see Horton Hears a Who and coloring our Easter eggs! I hope she enjoys everything and feels extra special.

Allura has that same bear! She named him Brownie. What did Elise name hers? Glad you guys had such a wonderful day together.

Don't you just love Build-a-Bear?! I am going to have to hit up the mall and get pictures with the Bunny. Dreading it, but a necessity. She looks so precious in her outfit. I love it!

We will be doing the eggs next week....pray for me...

Ang - She wanted to name it Mellie! Isn't that funny?? I don't think she's ever even heard someone call me that before.

Jen - We ended up putting off the eggs. I think we are doing them tomorrow. Hope our angels are all cooperative. LOL
