At first I only had one helper...
And then three!
When the dough was finished each of the younger kids blessed the bread.
After it rose for a good long time, I shaped it into a teddy bear. It rose for another hour, then I gave him some eyes, a nose, and a belly button. He also got a nice little egg wash.
We had a rather full day full of fun, so by the time our teddy cooled poor Theo had fallen asleep and would not be woken up. So we saved him some after the others tore into the bread.
I, of course, did not have any, but I assure you it looked very good and smelled delicious!
