Little Beary has been reunited to our family!
We called the landfill and asked them to search through piles of garbage for this guy.
It took them 6 weeks to find him, but they came through.
They sent him to the cleaners on his way home, since he was filthy from being buried in trash for so long. Little Beary looks as good and new, and is so happy to be home. Eli teared up when he opened the package, and won't go anywhere without him.
Apparently Little Beary not only missed Eli, but missed helping Eli drive his toy backhoe combo.
Oh, to be three and believe in magic!
