    Okay, I still have 4 skins to stuff, my sister just received two more skins and another bear (the two skins she just got were supposed to be stuffed but Build-a-Bear just sent them skins instead), and here are the last ones that have come to life that I can post.

    Now you know what I mean about my sister being a Build-A-Bear aficionado and me shopping in her house.

    First of all, Stella Lou arrived! Her story is that she loves to dance and is an aspiring ballerina. With us being a music household, although not of classical or opera music, I figured she'd fit right in.





    I also adopted a pirate named Matey, as in ahoy, Matey. Duffy was so excited he gave Matey his brand new (from a year and a half ago but he hasn't worn them yet) pirate pajamas so that Matey doesn't feel like he's just getting castoff hand me downs.

    "Pajamas are standard attire around here," he advised Matey.

    "Thanks bro!" Matey replied.



    Then Matey informed all of us, "my previous tender cut my eye patch so I can move it over and see out of both eyes if I need to," and showed us.



    Okay, so my sister is bringing more bears and skins when she comes in September for a few days, but this is it for now.

    I don't want to give da bears sensory overload so I waited until today to introduce more adoptions.

    Here is a sugar cookie Build-a-Bear named...Sugar.

    Sienna, the cupcake bear, came over to introduce herself also.



    "Donuts are my favorite treat, and I don't get them often, but I like cookies, too," said Duffy, making her feel welcome like they have something in common already.

    One good thing, my bears are not cliquish.

    They found their spot on a shelf.



    Felipe also found a good spot on the shelf, in between Topa and Francesca, and that is Bearnice in the background to the left, facing sideways.



    Also, meet Dylan, a downtown Disney bear, and Elodie.





    Chaunsey and Dylan made fast friends.

    Dazyhill, that's cool. I'm sure yours is more authentic and valuable. JillT

    Didn't know Build A Bear made a Snuggle Bear. I have a vintage one somewhere, but the Build A Bear one is cute.

    Continuing the cuteness, I also adopted Bearnice (who I actually call bear-NEES), one of the kabu bears. She's so adorable! I love the color of her fur and the pink and purple accents and her face.

    My sister is such a Build-a-Bear aficionado that the last few visits I have just gone shopping in her house, perusing the collection and then telling her what to get for me (and I pay her)! She has so many she rotates them, although Rockgirl and a few others stay out always.

    She comes with a downloadable free video game. You KNOW that got Bearami's and Duffy's attention.

    I also adopted Snuggle, the Build-a-Bear based on the Downy fabric softener commercial.



    After Duffy and Shellie May met him, Snuggle went up to snuggle with Fluffernutter.





    Fluffernutter rolled over but STILL would not completely give up the pillow my friend, Dave, sewed decades ago.

    He smiled at Snuggle, and then went back to sleep.





    Duffy learned the word "siesta" and joined them with Felipe also following.

    My sister and I went to Barcelona, Spain for 8 days (not counting fly time) and rented an apartment in the iexample neighborhood of Barcelona.

    The walk score is 100 and there are 296 restaurants within 0.3 miles/0.5 km of the apartment, 3 groceries within 1 minute, 36 city sights within 0.3 miles/0.5 km, and a metro station with multiple lines a block away or you can cross the street from the apartment and hail a taxi. It’s in the international high end shopping district (not that we care about designer purses or clothes LOL).

    I adopted Felipe (fah-LEE-pay), a bilingual Build-A-Bear. “A walk score of 100 is a perfect score,” I told him. “I live in Nashville, TN but not downtown, and even downtown we don’t have 296 restaurants within 0.3 miles.”

    “Meh, I’m tired of being trampled on by the hordes. I want a more peaceful environment with stuffies my size,” he told me, as he handed me a stack of music CDs from the FNAC store as an offering. “High end shopping for me being 17” tall is a wasted effort,” he continued.



    “Okay, then, come ON! I can certainly accommodate you. We have uber eats, grub hub, beyond menu, door dash, and Amazon Prime Restaurants to help with the food selection, about 40 stuffies to bond with, and over 11,000 songs in my own music library. I know Shellie May, Francesca, and Mohawan, Jr. will be especially excited about the music additions and Duffy will welcome you with open arms also.”



    "Hey, what am I, chopped liver?" said Duffy, walking in wearing his 'turn up the volume in Nashville' shirt. "I like video games the best, but I also like music!"







    Welcome Felipe!

    Tillie came up and asked, "so how was your plane journey from Spain to America?" She was worried about HIS experience since she and my sister got stranded in Toronto on the way back from England.

    "It was fine," he replied, puzzled at her concern, but giving her a hug as his new sister.

    "Well, don't forget, it is May, not middle of the winter," I gently reminded Tillie.

    "Oh, right," she said and gave him a hug back.



    Also, while walking around the streets of Barcelona, my sister noticed some Japanese young ladies (early 20s?) had Stella Lou on their purse as a keychain, so I said, "Koneecheewa, Stella Lou!" and pointed to my sister, and then to myself as I have ordered one of my own. They started smiling and laughing and I said "Duffy, Shellie May", did a thumbs up and pointed to both of us, and then said, "Gelatoni," and pointed to my sister, so then they were also saying which characters they had.

    It was WAY COOL!

    Remember when Duffy and Shellie May met my sister's Roaming Roger, and they were comparing pawsport stamps, and Roaming Roger even had clothes from other places? Remember how he had a "girlie" Las Vegas shirt because "all the good stuff was gone"?

    Well, he gave that shirt to ULT (Ultimate Lori Traveller, the cat), and Roaming Roger and Retired Rita got new Las Vegas shirts, YAY!

    This year we are celebrating International Tabletop Day at home, and we are getting an early start.

    We didn't want to pay $60 retail for Whistle Stop when it was released at Indy GenCon in 2017, but now Amazon had it for $26.75, and since Duffy is fascinated by trains, I purchased it.



    Duffy's train outfit is from Paris Disney.

    Shellie May is wearing a Madame Kyoto designed outfit, and Zhu Xiong stayed in pajamas since we're at home. Her outfit was designed by Colly in England on Etsy.



    "Your outfit looks better without glasses," said Zhu Xiong, trying to disarm him so she could have a better chance of winning.








    Since Duffy is not vain, he put his glasses back on so he could SEE STRAIGHT!



    Shellie May is playing with her tiles face up until she gets the hang of the game.





    Since tea helped Zhu Xiong's energy level at Indy GenCon (she's usually super happily laid back), she is drinking it again.



    Let the fun begin! JillT

    I have my non-region specific DVD player in the guest bedroom upstairs and I want to watch "My Family", a British TV series on DVD that only plays on that since they have a different format (PAL instead of NTSC). I told Fluffernutter he has to move NOW.

    He loves to sleep. He can sleep and sleep and SLEEP! He doesn’t snore, though. Toby likes to sleep with him. Da bears have cuddled with him and Shellie May TRIED to read him a Dr. Seuss book but he fell asleep before the end and those are short books already so she gave up. “I guess he won’t need a library card,” she told me.

    So Fluffernutter sort of scooted over. “Mmmph, there’s room for you now,” he said.









    Um, no, I need to crawl UNDER the covers and it’s only a double bed, so I would need more than that space.

    Well, then I got distracted so I didn’t watch the TV show that night and now Fluffernutter, who is also not parting with the pillow Dave sewed together (which is fine), thinks this is acceptable and fell right back asleep.

    After going through a polar vortex that extended all the way south to Birmingham, Alabama, da bears have put together this display as a survival guide for people still suffering from the cold.



    Shellie May dressed up for dramatic effect, while Duffy just put on a different pair of pajamas and is still wearing his bear slippers.







    Stay warm everyone!

    Amazon is our digital bestie.

    We pre-ordered the Kingdom Hearts 3 video game by Disney for the PlayStation 4 and Amazon got it to us on the day it was released and offered us a $10 digital credit (we can use that for digital music, digital videos, etc.) once they know we keep this game for a month and don’t return it. We also get some exclusive DLC.

    Duffy, even Shellie May, Bearami, and now Wrigley, are psyched!

    Da bears swarmed the prime package that it came in.





    I told them, “hey, bears, let ME play it first a little bit and then you can have it tomorrow when I’m slaving away at work to pay for all our hobbies.”







    They said “okayyyyyy,” as they all were hanging over my shoulder watching me.

    Duffy is wearing his new dinosaur onesie, and Shellie May has her new Hello Kitty top on and they both are wearing their bear slippers.

    Fluffernutter woke up enough today to make his signature sandwich, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff.



    "It's even more efficient to just dip nutter butter cookies into the marshmallow fluff," said Duffy. "Then you can get back to hibernating sooner." Duffy says the round nutter butter cookies are sturdier than the peanut shaped cookies that have a tendency to snap in the middle.



    Shellie May made herself a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Then da bears all sat on the couch to watch TV while they ate.











    Then I showed Fluffernutter the white chocolate wonderful peanut butter I have. "This is quite efficient, too, because you just spread this on the bread instead of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff."

    He agreed to try it next time.

    My one friend who I sent pictures of Justin and Toby to, said Justin looked like an alcoholic or drug addict originally and then it looked like he went to a grumpy old man, but now he's growing on her, too. I'll send her the latest picture and see if she likes it better now that he just swapped his t-shirt and put on skechers but kept his original jacket and jeans.

    "Too bad the jeans have rips, though," commented Shellie May.

    At the risk of looking like an old man (my sister's feedback) in the yard (my comment), Duffy gave Justin his British guitar t-shirt, even though the sleeves are covered up by the jeans jacket, and Justin took his skinny jeans back, even though they're black instead of blue denim.

    I agree, he looks better.



    Better, but not quite right.



    Yup, he needed his skinny jeans back.

    Happy new year everyone!

    I do alot of search a words on the bus. I grew tired of Kappa and Penny Press/Dell, both because of their newsprint paper and their outdated puzzles (they think that DisneyWorld still only consists of two parks). I went on ebay and Amazon and shopped for some other search a word books. I especially like Funster, Charles Zimmerman, and Jordan Smart.

    I like some other series, like Funster, and Charles Timmerman's Everything series (he is the one who founded Funster). I got Duffy an Everything KIDS Pirate puzzle book.

    He decided to put off winter hibernation long enough to do it and put on a pirate costume.



    However, because he could only see out of one eye, he decided to enlist the help of Jumbo Duffy. Jumbo Duffy said, "if you flipped up the eye patch you could see better, but I"ll be glad to help you anyway. This looks super fun!"

    I went to Chicagoland for Christmas. My sister's Duffy, Snuggly Duffy, Shellie May, and Rockgirl say "Happy Holidays and Happy New Year soon!"





    I also adopted Toby, who was living at my sister's house. He is a super snuggly bear who loves blankets.





    When I got home I had two new bears to introduce, so Duffy and Shellie May put on actual clothes. I think this dress really suits Shellie May's coloring. She's BEAUTIFUL.

    First, Toby investigated the blanket selection at home.



    "Ooo, this one is soft," said Toby.



    There were some afghans my Mom made in my coat closet.



    He decided he liked the sherpa throw the best and wrapped himself in it.



    Then he went into the bedroom and looked closer at the small, decorative afghan I have from my Mom.



    Here come Duffy and Shellie May.



    Duffy brought a bear sized sleeping bag and Shellie May brought a bear sized blanket to welcome Toby.



    My sister got me a Justin Bieber Build-a-Bear. Even though Justin Bieber is from Canada, this was an Australian exclusive Build-a-Bear. My sister has connections ha ha. He marched into the house bending his hip and knee at 90 degree angles keeping his feet flat and parallel to the ground. I'm not a fan of Justin Bieber. He announced, "I'm JUST Justin."



    Adelaide came shouting and running down the stairs doing somersaults to make it quicker, "I have an Aussie brother AND one who has paws by someone we don't like! YAYYYYY!" She gave him a big hug.



    "See, I have Cody Simpson paws," she showed him.



    "But there's a cure for that. Just wear shoes! We have a whole tub to choose from!"



    Shellie May and Duffy came over to say hi and to see what fashion advice they could offer.



    "I can get you a better shirt," offered Duffy.

    "I'd like to keep my denim jacket," said Justin.

    "Well, you don't need jeans with rips all over them," said Shellie May. "When our stuff looks like that we just throw it out."

    "I LIKE my ripped jeans. That's the current style."

    Justin found some jeans that match the color of his jacket, and for shoes he chose Skechers.

    "Can't go wrong with Skechers," said Duffy, who is also wearing a pair.

    "By the way, I'm JUST Justin," he reminded me.

    "So do I have to call you just Justin all the time or can I just call you Justin?" I asked.

    "You can just call me Justin," he replied.

    Da bears were scratching their heads with puzzled looks. "His name is Justin," I explained, "not Justin Bieber."



    Da bears got more clothes, and Zhu Xiong got two board games. I wanted Machi Koro, and my sister found a shrink wrapped brand new game called Entdecker at the thrift store, and it DOES sound fun. We played Machi Koro at her house but not Entdecker.









    Toby and Fluffernutter (the pillow maniac who now is sleeping on TWO of them), bonded instantly.



    Yes, winter hibernation is here!

    I adopted Fluffernutter, a 3' cuddle buddy from Vermont Teddy Bear Company. I just thought he was unique; I don't actually sleep with my bears LOL! He has half lidded eyes because he's always drowsy. He LOVVVVVES to sleep.

    He left Vermont Teddy Bear Company on 2 day delivery, went down the road 11 miles, and sat there for 23 hours, then spent 25 hours in Connecticut. Then they shipped him to Rural Retreat, VA, a town of 1,350 people...???!?# Well, it was no retreat. It was primitive with no facilities. Fluffernutter woke up enough to skeedaddle out of there and arrived at my house by noon the next day.

    He was tired and climbed up on my couch to sleep.



    Then I was able to get him upstairs to introduce himself to da bears.





    I had to explain to Duffy and Shellie May that he hibernates a lot, so he probably won’t be in the mood to play very often, but he’s so soft they still bonded with him and since it’s December they are just staying awake until the new year at which point they’ll also be hibernating somewhat themselves. “We can PRACTICE hibernating,” they said, as they climbed all over him, and he woke up enough to snuggle with them.





    Then Jumbo Duffy and Jumbo Shellie wanted a turn. “Oooo, he IS soft!” they said. His paws are weighted and like suede. Jumbo Shellie is happy there's a "jumboier bear" than her in the house now.
