The time has come, to let the Sprouts secret out of the bag! After a trip to Build a Bear, we came home with four bears that had heartbeat recordings in their little paws. We wrapped the bears in Christmas wrapping paper and gave them to Mom and Dad Hawkes when they came over for lunch. There was confusion about the bears and the sounds emanating from them that quickly turned to happiness and tears (minus Korak). I gave Mom and Dad the difficult task of keeping the news a secret until New Years.
