Grandma's Collection


My Aunt Neva got my mom hooked on collecting beanie babies. She usually will buy them and then throw them into a bin to store them away, and this isn't even half of them. She was nice enough to get some of them out for my girls today and it entertained them for hours. They had so much fun making piles of each kind of animal. While Kaitlee sorted out the kitties and and bunnies, Ivy picked out all the bugs, spiders and monsters and Reesie was just happy with any that she could get in her mouth. My girls are so much fun to watch. They each bring me joy in so many different ways and I feel so blessed to have them in my life.

I used to work at Hallmark...so your Grandma is one of those cute little old ladies who WAIT and CALL EVERY DAY for the new Beanie Baby coming out huh? How fun! Those ladies cracked me up...and they were always Grandma's! :)

Does Grandma Bita let big girls play with her beanie collection, too? That looks like SO much fun!

How fun!! Now I'm glad I kept all my beanie babies from the good old collecting days. They'll be put to some good use with my kids.

What a cute picture of your babies with a bunch of my "babies"! They sure did have fun that day! Just a note...most of them are not real "Beanie Babies", just all kinds of tiny stuffed animals. We'll have to get them out for the kids again soon!
