A Bear Census?

Jen decided to join a new group on Yahoo! called Teddy Bears Picnic. She has been working on making a house for some tiny bears and furnishings that she is planning to make from some discontinued Gail Wilson kits that have been under her bed for a long time. She thought having some friends to talk bears with would be fun and might motivate her to keep playing with her bears.

I think Jen's OCD tendencies kicked in and she thought that it would be a good idea to see just what bears are living here. Bears are a lot like Hittys. You invite one to live with you, and before you know it, their family, friends and distant relatives are all coming to visit and never leave. I helped her begin her project to document all of the bears who live here. We didn't even finish taking photos of the hug living in the family room when the battery in the camera died. This project could take a while! We are only taking a census of bears. Hares, sheep, kittens and puppies are not going to be counted on grounds that it might incriminate us. I took a few pictures of my bears, even though I love my bunny the best! So, here are some photos from this afternoon.

This bear came with my plaid dress and sweater I was wearing in the last post:

This bear was given to me by Erica and Maggie when I came to live here. They are Sissel Skille girls. They received this bear in a swap. It was nice of them to share her with me.

Here I am with some of the bears who were waiting for their turn to get their picture taken.

It was a very nice day.

You can see the rest of the pictures we took in Jen's Picasa album, here:

Thank you, Miss Gladys. Some of these bears have been living with Jen for over 30 years! I am glad to meet her old friends.
