Thank you to Cuddle Barn for providing a Grandma Cookie Bear to add some Christmas cheer to our table.  All words and opinions are 100% my own.

Decorating for Christmas has been kind of a big deal my whole life.  For as long as I can remember, my parents went out of their way to make the season special for us.  The excitement would start when my father headed upstairs to drag the huge boxes of Christmas decorations and ornaments down from the attic.  We’d then usually bundle up and head out to the woods on our property to cut our trees, including a mini one for each of the kids’ bedrooms.

I’m thankful that I married someone that not only indulges me but also enjoys decorating for the season, as well.  We usually put the tree and other decorations up the week of Thanksgiving.  Putting things up just a bit early allows Ashley to participate.  After the short Thanksgiving break they have, she doesn’t usually get home again until the semester ends just before Christmas.

The Talking Grandma Cookie Bear from Cuddle Barn is a Sweet #Christmas Decoration

This year we have an adorable new addition to our Christmas decorations.  The Grandma Cookie Bear from Cuddle Barn recently came to live with us and will likely be claiming a spot in our dining room.  It seems like an appropriate place for a bear that likes to bake!

The Grandma Cookie Bear loves gingerbread cookies – especially shaped like trees and gingerbread men.  She’s holding a recipe card for gingerbread, probably in hopes that you’ll share some with her.  When you press the button on her ear, she’ll actually talk you through the process of making the cookies.

I have to say that in addition to being really cute, this bear makes me feel a little nostalgic.  I couldn’t even begin to start counting the number of times I’ve baked with my grandmother in her kitchen, or have sampled one of the dozens of kinds of cookies she made for us year-round.  Living thousands of miles away makes it hard to participate in those activities!

Bubbles had already been asking us multiple times of day if it was time to put up the Christmas tree, so she has taken a huge interest in Grandma Cookie Bear.  All day I’ll hear “Hi!  Today I’m going to show you…” as she presses Grandma Cookie Bear’s paw.  I’m pretty sure I’ll have memorized the recipe for gingerbread by the time the holidays get here!

The Talking Grandma Cookie Bear from Cuddle Barn is a hit with the Kiddos!

The Grandma Cookie Bear would make a great addition to your own decor, but would also make an awesome gift for any friends or family members that love to bake.  You can order one directly from the Cuddle Barn website – and they have free shipping in the Continental US.  Using promo code HOLIDAY13 will get you an extra 5% off until 12/15/13, too.  And thanks to Cuddle Barn, one of you will also win one!
