Happy Groundhog Day!

February 2, 2011

It’s a snow day in all of the midwest today and in most of the US!  What better thing to do than catch up with your favorite online game after shoveling that sidewalk!

Head over to buildabearville.com where there’s no snow, only sunshine and good friends, and check out whether the groundhog sees his shadow today!

Click on your map and select the Path in the Friendship Forest.  Click on the flashing tree stump and a really cute video will play for you.  Build-a-bear always does such a nice job with this holiday!  You’ll get a free virtual gift just for watching too!

He steps out into the clearing;  will he see his shadow?  Will we have 6 more weeks of winter if he does or an early spring if he does not?

No spoilers here, check it out!

Mark 16:1-8
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ”

Be sure and visit Bearemy today, he has a gift for you!
