Happy Friday, it's Bellamine & Wendy and it is time for our guest post. We've been promised by our mom that we can have Friday to post any time we want. We're okay with that for now but we're still hoping  for our own blog some day.

We're calling this post Green White and Gold cause that's the color combination we used to decorate our little tree for St. Patrick's Day. If you remember we talked M into keeping it out when they packed away the Christmas decorations so we can change it for the different holidays.

We asked her to buy us a shamrock cookie cutter cause we were going to make salt dough ornaments and she did buy us one but it was like humongous!!! Like, Mom, what's with you? Did you even think about why we wanted a shamrock cookie cutter? We didn't want it for cookies but since we have it we guess we wouldn't mind if you made us some sugar cookies. 

Since we didn't have a small cookie cutter we had to think of something else to decorate with. Lucky for us we're clever at coming up with ideas. It's that and the fact M took us to the craft store to see if there was something there we thought we could use.

Here's how our tree turned out. We think it's pretty and hope you do to. If you don't think so, don't tell us cause we worked on it really, really hard and spent all of our allowance decorating it.

So, what do you think Sampson, do you like the tree?

There are only three different types of decorations on this tree and they are either green or white or gold. There's a checkered bow on the top that is all three colors.

The gold is the leprechaun's gold coins. Neato!! We got to drill holes in the coins with M's drill. That required supervision cause it's a power tool.
Sampson is really taken with the bowl of pillows. M is making some that look like shamrocks and 4 leaf clovers.  She says they're called tucks or bowl fillers. We just call them pillows.

We wrapped the basket that the tree sits in with green and white fabric and tied a white ribbon around it.

We think we had a good idea when we decided to keep the tree out. M said, "I can't wait to see how you're going to decorate it for Ground Hog's Day." She thinks she's funny but we think she's a doughnut short of a dozen.

Is anyone else hungry? Talking about doughnuts made us think about the birthday cake in the kitchen. We're going to get some cake and then we're going to visit our bear friends who post on Fridays.

We almost forgot to tell you something really exciting. We got out applications for Camp Good Bear in the mail this week and M said we can both go. We're so excited cause we're going to see a lot of our bear friends there and it's going to be so fun!!!!

Have fun and eat lots of peanut butter and honey with plenty of hot chocolate and laugh and play all day. That's what we always do.

Heaps of hugs,

Bellamine & Wendy and the North Pole Bears

Hi Bellamine & Wendy,

Mom is crying - she read that your M is "a doughnut short of a dozen" and lost it - she can't stop laughing.

Your tree is bee-u-tee-ful, I never saw such a pretty St. Patty's Day decoration. You should think about going into business. "Holiday Trees".

I am so beary excited that you are coming to summer camp, we are going to have sooo much fun. (o:
Thank you Miss Maddyrose.

Heaps of Hugs

Hi Bellamine and Wendy:
How are you today. You both seem in high spirits, it must be because you are proud of your tree. It's a lovely looking tree. I'm glad you got to keep it out all year.
I see dear Prudence was up quite late (or quite early)this morning.
I wonder if her Mom knew she was on the 'puter as she calls it.
I won't tell, Prudence.

oh my sweet grandbears. You did a fabulous job with the tree. I am so proud of how you decorated. Poor Ma being short of a dozen by a doughnut. I know that my human grands think that about me most of the time too.

Good morning Bellamine and Wendy,
We think your little tree is just perfectly pretty!

We are begging our mama to let us have one for Easter. Mama said if we are good little bears. Of course we always are. :o)

We are so happy you get to post every Friday! Don't give up on having you're own blog though.

See you next Friday. Till then have lots of Peanut Butter and honey!!

Hiya Bellamine and Wendy:-)

Ooooh we just LOVE your tree decorated with St. Patrick's Day decorations, it's so beautiful! We wish we would have told Mama Pea to keep out her small tree after Christmas...maybe next year we'll ask. It looks like so much fun being able to decorated it for every holiday. Who ate the doughnut that your mom is short of????? hehe That was funny!!!

Oh goodie, we're so excited that you two are also going to Camp Good Bear, we're gonna have sooo much fun!!

Doughnuts? Did you say doughnuts? Now was it a ring one or one of those yummy filled ones? Oooh, ooh, was it a maple iced caramel kreme one, was it, was it? And if M can spare one, can she send it here?!!!

What a great idea that your mum kept the tree out. I can not believe it is so beautiful, all for St. Pats day. Granny doesn't seem to be getting any green things out in my house.
Woopy , I am going to camp as well. We will have the best time together.
