My friend Angie had her third boy this year. Since they're an Army family through and through, I made her newest addition a camouflage teddy bear. But apparently I ushered an era of fighting into her home. Her oldest stole the bear from the baby.


So adorable. Except for the constant fighting. Apparently the boys fight over who gets to sleep with the bear every night. I feel so bad that I did something to contribute to discord in their house. So the Army teddy is getting some friends.


Now they have their own little multicultural squad. (I should make one more so they'd have a whole tank, but then they might fight over the extra bear!) Hopefully this helps lessen Angie's stress. And I learned a valuable knitter's lesson: never make something for one kid in a family.

Lol! I LOVE the multiculturalness. Those bears are amazingly cute--did you seriously knit them?

first off, that little boy is adorable...

your bears are cute. I need to learn to knit. I am afraid I would end up with a bear, that looked like a cat, but with one wide leg, one narrow leg, and a foot long arm.

Sabbrielle -- I made many a few months back to donate to kids in Africa. It's a great hobby!

We can't wait to get them! and hey, at least they're not fighting over pretend strawberries anymore!

Miss you so much! You're such a great friend!

Get that little boy an AGENT. He is cute enough
to do grape juice ads on TV!

Oh man! That boy is so cute!! Ronin would just love one of those bears. They are just as cute as the little boy.
