Found....One Cookie Bear!

Today was a very happy day for my youngest daughter. Two years ago, I found one of these Cherished Teddy 'Cookie' bears that Avon put out. I found the original one at a 2nd hand store, but it still had the tags on it. Cherished Teddies wasn't making them anymore, I was disapointed to hear that as I wanted a spare 'Cookiebear' as my daughter calls her. It has nearly been lost on several occasions. She drags Cookiebear with her everywhere and has to sleep with her every night. If she doesn't have him, she's very upset and cries terribly! So, for the past couple of years I've tried everywhere to get a spare one, just in case. A few days ago, I thought I would try eBay again. To my surprise there were 4 available. One was here in Canada and it was an auction, the ones in the States were 'buy it now', but I thought I would try the Canadian vendor. I WON the bid! I only had to pay $4.95 + $5.50 for shipping! I was thrilled. The bear arrived today, still in original packaging, Natalia is soooo happy! Now, Cookiebear has a twin sister! :) An end to a happy story. :)

OK, apparently the supper fairies aren't coming to make supper for the family, so I have to take my broken back up to make it myself! :( I hope to be able to sit for a little bit tonight to create something. I'll try to have something to post later tonight. :)

Yah, for Cookie Bear!! We have a 'Teddy' in our house too. My youngest actually received hers the Christmas before she was born...yes before. And Daddy so wishes to be rid of Teddy sometimes!! I sometimes think she will have him till she gets married!! ;0)

Hope the back is better soon...been to the dr or is this an ongoing issue?

I've actually never seen that bear before. But it made me think of how attached my sson is to his pillow and pillow case. We originally got him a spiderman pillow case and he wouldn't even let us wash the darn thing and then it stated to get a hole so we begged him to let us get him a new pillow case but they no longer sell that pattern. They had a different spiderman one which after a lot of convincing he finally let us buy. It took a couple of days before he let us switch it. To make things worse we wanted to replace the pillow itself and he had a fit! needless to say we are still trying to trick him and every time I pop a new pillow in there he says.. "Hey! This isn't my pillow!?" Oh well!

Yup, kids certainly have their own 'ideas' on their sookie bears/blankets/pillowcases etc. The new Cookiebear has gone over very well and they are both cuttled up to Natalia tonight. Too cute! :)

My back is a bit better, or at least the drugs have kicked in! I did competitive gymnastics for years and it really took a toll on my back. I think it twists and contorts your body into ways it was never supposed to me! That and my weight issues now, but I'm working on that one. I haven't gone to the doctor. I know I'm supposed to be doing back strengthening exercises and I don't do them, so I can only blame myself for the pain that I'm in right now! When it gets better after this episode, I'm gonna try my best to keep up with them, though...
