This bear I am guessing at least 70 years old. I know he was passed down to my father and supposedly supposed to go to the first born son. In a divorce my mother saved him and gave him to me. Technically my brother should have him, but I got him by default. The next in line is my daughter, and hopefully one day she will pass him down to her children. The teddy is in amazing shape, but he smells of dust. My little Jack wouldn't kiss him. I took this photo for a photography group I am in, but now I am thinking I need to take one will all the kids. The bear means a lot to me and hopefully one day will mean a lot to my kids.
So for my fellow blog readers who have stuck with me for the many years I have been doing this... you may remember this photo (back in 2010). Well this is the big sister in the photos below. I had called the blog post crabby pattie. Turns out her sister is a crab too! A beautiful crab at least.
I am just honored this family has stuck with me. I hope they print some of these out and cherish them forever.
