The Party Continues

Ellie’s Birthday happened For Reals with cupcakes at school. It also happened with all of her grandparents the weekend before and AGAIN at Build-a-Bear on Saturday. The Build-a-Bear party was really nice – engaging, sweet and the Party Bears (folks who work there) throw a great party. Even better than I expected.

That bear’s name is Rosie. She’s getting dressed.

So it’s back to normal.* I’m working on Easter orders and trying to get a couple toys (cats and elephants) back in the shop. I’m also working on a little surprise for y’all!

Has anybody played LittleBigPlanet 1 or 2? Ellie and I started a game in 2, but the levels in the game progressed beyond her gaming experience pretty quickly. Game play is a good fit for us because if she can’t make it, she can just wait for me to get to the next way point and reappear…but for many of the levels (with the grapple especially), she’s waiting for me a lot. I hope that some of the user-created content will more suit her style (which revolves around sticker placement, jumping and dressing our characters like cats).

  1. Happy Birthday Ellie! Hey Em. I have played and completed both LBP1 and 2. I just loved it. I think that the first one was easier then the second. But loved the second more because of the challenges. If you’d like, get in contact with me and we can swap id’s and I’ll play along with ya’ll. it’s been awhile since I played them but I’d be glad to help out when I can. -A

  2. Glad build a bear was sweet. I could never play those games…without directions.. WHen my kids played they just sort of intuitively knew how to play…I just don’t get it
