Bunnies galore...well, not really!

We had the great idea to get some bunnies to take Easter photos with. We got one bunny from out in the country past Canton, but Justin thought she was lonely. So, we had to go get another from Briarwood Pet Shop. When it came time to take the photos, the bunnies were great! Unfortunately, Jason just thought they would be fun to sit on or to pull their ears. PETA is going to come after us for this one: Justin intervened, and we did get a couple of pictures with the bunnies.We didn’t get many good pictures with them. This was the best picture we got with Jason and one of the bunnies: Poor bunny had nowhere to go, and Jason couldn't sit on top of her in his swing!

Jason did pose well for some pictures by himself.
Granny’s irises that she gave me 5 years ago were a perfect backdrop!

Easter day

Jason woke up Easter morning to a basket full of goodies. As you can tell, he was really amazed! Either that, or he was really tired. This was the first time he has gotten a gift and actually been interested in it. It really is amazing how much he has grown. He picked up each toy and inspected it before going to the next one. This is totally different behavior than from Christmas, where he could care less about anything but the paper.

We then made our way to church, and after church, got a good picture in front of the house and my wisteria.
Except for that dog! No, we didn't get another dog. Our neighbors just let him out, and he likes to come play with Peanut all the time. Unfortunately, this was my favorite picture! I guess everything can't be perfect.

My mom, brother, Jay, and Sandie were able to come
over to our house for Easter lunch. I made brisket using the Pioneer Woman’s recipe and we had lots of other sides. Sandie had brought over eggs for dying, and the adults dyed eggs while Jason took a nap. Then, Justin hid eggs. When Jason woke up, we put him in the wagon and let him hunt eggs. Once he picked up the egg though, he thought it would be fun to smash them down. I have to admit, it did look like lots of fun!

Yeah, I know it's been a while!

So, I haven’t posted in a while.  2 months, to be exact.  Things have been a little crazy around here.  Jason turned one,  Justin’s grandparents moved from Kossuth (4.5 hours away) to Clinton, and we’ve just been generally busy trying to keep up with it all!  I actually look forward to the week starting so that I can get a break from my weekends.  So, I’ll try in the next few posts to catch you up!
