Friday night we surprised the kids with a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop! Since both boys already have their own stuffed animal from Build-a Bear, we thought it would be fun for them to make a special animal for each one of their new siblings.
Riley decided that he would make one for Sophie and Corban would make one for Hudson.

Riley picked out this adorable bunny with pink floppy ears and a pink nose.

Corban picked out an adorable dog for Hudson.
( Please ignore the big piece of green chewing gum in his mouth.
Shane had just bought it for him out of the gumball machine!)

They got to record their own special message to go inside the paw of the animal! After recording their message, it was time to stuff the animal to their liking!

They also got to give it a heart, bath, and a good brushing.
Then it was off to find their animal the perfect outfit.

Riley picked out a pink shirt with a lamb on it! He also asked Shane if they had any pink hair bows?!?! He is so sweet. He knew if this animal was for Sophie then it would not be complete without a pink hair bow! Of course they did!

Corban wanted to deck his dog out in Panthers gear, but that was just a little too pricey for our budget, so he gladly settled for an 100% Huggable shirt instead.

Riley was so... excited to give his PINK bunny to Sophie!

He named it Sissy, which we thought was perfect!
Sophie LOVES her bunny!

Corban named his doggie Max, and decided that he would sleep with it
and keep it company until Hudson arrives later this week!!
