teddy bear teddy bear turn around!

remember this?  "teddy bear, teddy bear turn around,  teddy bear teddy bear touch the ground, teddy bear teddy bear tie your shoe, teddy bear teddy bear that will do.  Teddy bear teddy bear climb the stairs, teddy bear teddy bear say your prayers, teddy bear teddy bear turn out the light, teddy bear teddy bear say good night!"  we used to recite this while jumping rope.  oh how I used to jump rope!  we would take turns swinging the ends and jumping in the middle, sometimes there would be two of us or maybe ever three of us jumping in the center.   and there were so many of those little poems or whatever you what to call them that we used to sing while we jumped..   "cinderella dressed in yella"  "down by the river where the green grass grow.."  "bubble gum bubble gum in a dish.."    and so many more!
well, I didnt mean to go there with this post, I really just wanted to show pictures of these bears and say good morning and happy day! 

always remembears
Finally finished the orders.. I have another order sitting here to start soon.  I'm using bear money to help pay for Roberts wedding, though I think those wedding plans have been scaled  back and its not going to cost as much now.
 So I'm thinking that I'll be use some of  my bear money over the next few months to help  little Tony and Vanessa with all the trips to and from the hospital that they are about to embark on.  They are going to need help Im sure.

next project??  My swappy gift for my weekend at Sandy Camardas in june!  fingers crossed that it turns out as planned!  and other then that... Im feeling the red white and blue coming on!
happy day girlie pies!

Those bears are as cute as can be. I remember spending hours in the summer singing Cinderella. I especially love the part that says "made a mistake and kissed a snake, how many doctors did it take!" Who came up with that!!!

Love those bears - and I'm sure their families will too, especially with the memories they'l bring.
Wonder if kids still jump rope? Here they have "p.e." instead of "recess".

How adorable are those bears! You do such good work. Josie's getting a jump rope for her upcoming 6th birthday. I've got it wrapped around a gift as a bow. It's currently hidden in my messy bedroom closet.

Once all the birthdays are done at my house, I'm going to start working on patriotic crafts. Can't wait! Bring on the red, white and blue!

The bears are darling! Do people send you fabric to use or do you provide it? We used to jump to "not last night but the night before".... not too long ago I was in a meeting and someone said that...and that's what ran through my head! LOL!

The bears are wonderful, Viv! I KNOW they bring comfort to the people they're for. It is a SUPER way to hold a piece of a loved one and STILL feel happy because it's in a new teddy bear form! And YOU, my sweet friend, are just the MOST awesome mom. YOu really ARE! P.S. I remember all the rope-jumping rhymes but I SUCKED at jumping rope! LOL!

The bears are adorable. My favorite is the tan plaid one.
So sweet of you to use the money to help out your kids.

Sorry you couldn't find the right pink! Maybe you should get pink clip on hair extensions?! I use blonde ones all the time! I can't wait to see what you make for our swap :) Yeah I noticed all the red and blue stuff at JoAnn's-last month and thought of you!

Farmchick said...

So very cute...such a talented gal you are. :) Thanks for stopping by the other day. :) So, do you still jump rope?

Heidi said...

This is hilarious--I was just doing a Google search for something completely unrelated and stumbled across an old website of jump-rope rhymes! It brought back some fun memories. http://www.mudcat.org/jumprope/jumprope_display_all.cfm
