Boys with their FAO Schwartz Bears "Take 32": My mom went to New York for Thanksgiving this year and sent both boys a bear from Fao Schwarz. To make it more special, she sent a picture of herself outside of the store with the live toy soldier model to include in each of the boys' books. With this picture of Rassie in New York, I wanted to include a picture of the boys with their New York teddy bears. It only took 32 attempts to get the one I was looking for.
...although I have to admit that "take 17" without the bears was pretty cute too...and no, my youngest child is not just posing with the ornament in his hand to be cute...he intends to eat it as "take 14, 15 and 16" show.
