While we waited for Christmas...

While waiting for Christmas
I read the Christmas story to Barnes and Rusty from my favorite Christmas book.
I checked on my favorite nativity. 

Wishing you all Merry Christmas.

The book:
The Backyard Bears Present The Story of Christmas by Karen Schuler

Grr-bye for now,

Lots of pounding and zinging...

The day before Thanksgiving I head noises out front. I took a quick look out the sewing room window and this is what I saw.
A great big cement truck. I ran to look out the bedroom window and this is what I saw.

National Button Day...

Today is National Button Day! I know, I just celebrated Count Your Buttons Day last month. So deciding what to do to mark this auspicious occasion has been difficult.

Sierra Rose suggested I count the buttons on the dress mom just finished making for her.
In this photo there are seven buttons. Do you see them?
Two on the front.

Fall Leaf Fun...

Grr, yep, it's been a long time no post, sigh! Today I have something to write about. Since Buster visited us for the weekend. On Saturday I asked our dad if he'd take us to find some fall color. He said he knew just the spot, but we'd have to wait for him in the car after, because he had to go in to his office and work.

First we did a little tree climbing.

Garden stroll delayed...

I took a garden stroll shortly before the storm that flooded our basement and rained in our ceiling. I've been waiting to share those pictures with you.
These impatients look a little thirsty. Looks like dad needed to mow the grass.
I like this rose color, hummm, they're thirsty too. We sure needed rain.
Well, it looks like the weeds are doing better than the wave petunias. They have been battling to live in spite the rabbits.
Well, grandpaw's birdhouse made it through winter, sort of. Only one apartment is inhabitable.
Look we have a renter, it's a little wren. She's  been squawking at me the whole time I've been wandering about the flower bed. I think she is the one the chased the cardinals off. She may sing pretty, but she is a meanie.
The phlox are so tall, I had to climb the fence. These are the flowers that made me want to take a walk around the garden. Our neighbors are getting ready to build a new shed, you can see the forms for the foundation.
I hope you've enjoyed my garden tour.

Well grr-bye for now,

Real Bear Rescues Stuffed Bear From Humans

Hi all,
Things are still a little chaotic here. It's not flooding through the floor drains, the dumpster left this morning. Very early this morning it rained through the ceiling in the bedroom again. So here is a bear story recently sent to me...

The floods come up...

Just a quick word, we are doing a massive clean-up this week. We had some flooding and sewer back-up in our basement with last Friday nights storms. Saturday morning I spent comforting some of the bears, and one hare.
They bearly missed getting wet. They'd have been goners,

The rest of my Bear-thday...

THANKS everyone for all the nice comments and bearthday wishes you left me. Let's see now, I was just getting to my presents and cards in my last post. Of course, in getting to them I dumped my cake. I was so anxious to get to my presents, mom said I could have another one later.
First I opened one from the guys.

My Bearthday...

Well may Bear-thday has finally arrived! YAY!!! This is the first time I am actually getting a party. You can read about why here.

My day started with a singing phone call from my grandma, this is a tradition of which I have never been the recipient. Grandma apologized saying she and grandpa wouldn't be able to attend my party. She said she'd be taking care of my grandpa, he discovered yesterday he has a case of shingles. I was confused by this, as I thought you put those on your roof, and I know for a fact that grandma doesn't allow him to go up there anymore.  That was sad news on top of the fact that my Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Pete couldn't come either.
So only bears and mom and dad came to my party. Ahh, but on with the party.

Teddy Bear Picnic...

Last Saturday I was putting a little reminder for my bearthday on the calender. In case you hadn't noticed, I recently put a count down reminder here on my blog. Mom & dad have a tendency to forget.

I noticed that it was Teddy Bear Picnic Day, so I asked mom if we could have one.

Strike up the band...

I know I'm late, sorry, but I trust everyone had a great 4th of July! A few pictures from mine.

Strike up the band, we would have if we'd had one. Tell me, what bear doesn't love a parade? Some of the patriotic dressed bears decided to have a parade.

I Got Mail...

I was soo excited when I heard mom say "Buttons, you got mail!"
I got mail, I got mail! Real mail, not email!
It's from my friend Marlowe, he lives in Wisconsin.

The rest of my bear-cation...

The next day my mom and her lady friends went to Texas to pick-up the brides dress. Then they got pedicures and did lunch. Things a bear would not be interested in doing, so I went with my dad to explore a little of downtown Durant. Durant Okalahoma is located about 2 hours north of Dallas Texas. Who knew,

My bear-cation...

I got back recently from a brief bear-cation. I've just been looking over brochures for the places we didn't go.
Some of the other bears in my hug are pea green with envy. I don't know why, 16 hours straight in a car is not exactly all fun for a bear.

Our feathered nursery...

I have been so busy checking on the baby robins.
I'm wearing camoflauge, in hopes that Mr. & Mrs. Robin don't see and dive bomb me.

My new neighbors...

Hi all, I'm reporting to you from the laundry room window sill today. Shhh, I'm trying to be as quite as possible.
I don't want to disturb our newest neighbor, Mrs. Robin, as I check to see if she is in. Sure hope I can watch her from here, let's see.

Blog-a-versary and my aunt...

I have been in the blog-a-sphere for a whole year!!! Yay!!! Of course, true to form, my blog assistant and I missed posting on the exact annibearsary.

In honor of my one year, I'd like to share an accomplishment of one of my favorite peeps, my Aunt Cheryl. She's a writer, but not just a regular writer,  she's a ghost writer. Woooo... it sounded scary to me till A.C., I call her A.C., explained it doesn't mean she writes scary books. She told me it means she helps other people write their books. Well, she has just written a book of her own, she brought one along several weeks ago when we celebrated her bearthday.

My Earth Day

The flowering crab tree in the backyard has bloomed. I begged to be able to climb it before the flowers were all gone. What better day than Earth Day! I had to hurry, because it was getting late.
It was beary high up, but I wasn't scared.

Pandas on Panda...

Get it...Panda's on Panda? Ha ha! Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun. I dare say, the resident panda bears are not amused, by either my punniness or the brand name of toilet paper that recently found

Happy Easter 2

Last week my new friend Bally, a turtle that lives in Spain, sent me a chocolate Easter egg. I have been checking my mailbox for it's arrival.

My mom told me that sometimes it takes a long time for mail and packages to arrive from overseas. I even checked yesterday, on Easter, as it hadn't come on Saturday. I know that there is no mail delivery on Sundays, but I thought maybe

Easter Reserrection Rolls...

This Easter we decided to try baking Resurrection Rolls. Mom thought this would be good way to help all us bears understand about Jesus resurrection and the empty tomb.
Mom wanted to make sure that we understood that Easter is not all about the Easter Bunny, we are celebrating Jesus resurrection.

WooWhoo! Cottage Cheese Pancakes!

Woooowhoo! Cottage Cheese Pancakes!! I love pancakes! I know, they sound weird, but they're not. The other day I helped mom make Cottage Cheese Pancakes, yum! These pancakes are flour-less and you mix them in the blender.
After mom took her medicine we got started.

Bedding industry goes to the giants...

Grandma and Grandpaw just got a new bed. Actually just a new mattress and box springs and new bed rails to convert their bed frame from a full to a queen. We were there to take Buster home and so dad could help grandpaw put it together. How did Buster, Barnes and I check it out?

Teddy Bears for Haiti...

Ever since the earthquake struck Haiti I have been beary concerned about the people effected by it. The children who have lost so beary much. Being a bear, I know from my Comfort and Security 101 class that teddy bears can be very comforting to children who have been traumatized. Comfort and Security 101 is a required course at all Teddy Bear Birthing Centers. So I asked mom if there was a Teddy Bear Drive to collect teddy bears to send to the children of Haiti? She suggested I look online
