Beary Christmas To One and All

My teddy bears love to celebrate - what they would really like is to eat the cookies - so they decided to be nice and pose for pictures.
 Grampa Bear and Lolly
 Elmo as "Sandra Clause (he has braids) Joose the Moose, Grampa and Bobo
 Elmo the trucker, Bear, Oliver and Grampa Bear - he sure gets in a lot of pictures.  He wants to let you know that his name is "Grahhhhmmmpa Bear"
 Joose the Moose - let me play you a little tune (this horn is also good for sneaking up on people and blowing it really loud and scaring them) but not tonight - I want a cookie so I won't scare anyone (yet)
 It is lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you (no snow so the rug will have to do).  Murray, Sammy, Tumpy, Baby as Sandra Claus, and Lolly
 Easy on the curves there Murray, Sammy might lose his antlers!!!
 Picking up a load of food for later
 The bears even have their own tree - all full of teddy bear ornaments

The Big Guy (I'm their favorite, shhhh don't tell)
 And the Partridge in a Bear Tree
 Joose the Moose likes to help decorate
 Now look what you've done Joose
 Some other christmas friends - these all sing songs and some perform dances
 Snowman Bear leads the singing - everyone ready?
 Hey guys - wait a minute - that's not how you sing - no wrestling!!!  Don't you want a cookie later?
 Ok, Joose the Moose to the rescue - now everyone sing nicely.

Who took our hats?  You're not going to get a cookie!  Bear, Elmo, Joose the Moose, Grampa Bear

Beary Christmas!!!!

Not many bears around here other than Teddy who I got for my first Christmas ... actually, I got the white bear and my twin got the brown one but since he liked the white one better ... well that thread-bare bear is mine (and still loved)
Now Owls ... that is another story!

I think you must of had a Beary Merry Christmas! The Teddy bear tree is delightfully fun to look at. I just love it! I will be smiling all day. The guys sledding about the house and delivering the snacks were a clever idea. There is so much fun and fantasy in your post to enjoy! ..... Candy

Mr. Magpie is a bear fan, too, JoAnn, but I do believe you have him beat! :-)

I love them all lined up on the sleigh... so cute!

I'm a day late, but the sentiment is still the same. I pray that you and yours had a Merry Christmas and will be blessed beyond measure in the year to come.

Much love,

Sheila :-)

Loved your Bear-y nice tour! The "partridge in a bear tree" is great! Any collection brought out at Christmas really warms up the house, but ones you can pick up and hug are the best!
I've been busy greeting my new grandson (thank you for the sweet comment!) so had to let most of my regular reading slip by, but your post was the one "must get to!" I had!
A Bear-y Happy New Year to you and Don, JoAnn!
