Bob T. Bear's Olympic Event!!!

Over at Bob's blog they are having a most exciting Olympic event and we are going to participate!
Bob and his bear friends frequently participate in the sport of SYNCHRONIZED SITTING! He has decided that in honor of the Olympics, to have an event with prizes and everything for the best synchronized sitters! So, after a lot of shuffling and moving around, the bears and I have worked on preparing our entries.

We decided our first event would be SYNCHRONIZED ROCKING - since some of the gang just LOVE LOVE LOVE their rocking chairs (a lot like their mother! LOL). We did some practicing.

We had to draw straws on who would get to sit where and there were some bear-tears shed, but at last we got the groups assembled and here is our very proud entry for SYNCHRONIZED ROCKING:

You know they totally ROCK, right! Gee - aren't I just hilarious? (totally rhetorical - please don't answer)
Then -Scooter and Oscar said they thought synchronized events involved making a pretty design all together.... So, we tried a few "designs" and after practicing again

we unanimously voted on the ever-classic circle with rising bunny rabbit in the center! Yes, we know it's been done before, but it is a tribute and we feel that we totally NAILED it!

So - here is our entry for SYNCHRONIZED LAYING ABOUT!!:

And. finally, almost everyone said they wanted to participate in the SYNCHRONIZED SITTING photo. Some brave bears volunteered to remain on post where they calmly sat guarding bookshelves, sewing machines, window sills, entertainment centers and table tops. The rest of the gang pulled together and here is our masterpiece entry: (applause!!! applause!!)

We really hope that we can at least "place" and get a medal for the USA!! Thanks to Bob T. Bear for sponsoring this event!! The judging takes place Saturday... Good Luck to Team Husker!!

Looks like Team USA has again leaped ahead of all the rest with not only one event but three.
Looks like I will have to do some serious begging,bribing,boasting and brown-nosing to keep ahead.

Beautiful hug you have there.

Bear((( )))

Some real pretty girlie bears you have there. I love the little guy with the heart in the middle of the 2nd pic of synchronised rocking. His face cracks me up!
Do your Yorkies ever chew the noses off any of your bears, my Lucy did!
Good luck in the competition!
