When the bears and their friend Kiltie Sasha found out that St. Patrick's Day was this week, they insisted on having a dance to celebrate. Please see The St. Patrick's Day Dance tab above for the whole story.
One of my first distinct memories from my childhood of being creative by my own initiative was one happy sunny day when I took my little Kodak (film cartridge) camera outside and took photos of my stuffed animals in our yard in different little scenes. I had so much fun posing them and deciding where to put them and I loved the photographs when they came back. I still have some and will scan them in when I find them! Unfortunately at the time, I had proudly put them in one of those sticky pages photo albums and so now- years later- they are worse for the wear.
A couple of years ago, when my husband got me a wonderful camera on a great deal- well the love that never really went away- came back and I have had a blast photographing my teddies among other sweet things that make me happy- including clouds, friends, our cats and the birds that visit our yard. :)
