Bunny is lame when he is sick.

Easter is not as awesome as usual when mom and dad are down with the flu. PJ's all day, small store bought baskets and a mini dessert. I wish I could say our kids are beyond trivial junk like the size of their Easter baskets or dessert...but they are kids after all. They let the bunny trashing start right away.

At least this guy was just happy to be alive this morning.





































He is so adorable...oh my gosh I could cuddle him all day.






































The bunny dropped off a carrot cake.

The family has grown...by a pound.

The kids got to have fun at Grandma's for a little party. Car ride home Lily says "Mom should I save my money for college, fun things or my old people medications" now that's thinking ahead for my almost nine year old Hahaha!

On the way home from the party we picked up a special surprise. Meet Pepe everyone! 3 years in the begging for a bitty doggy, the kids are in love with him. He is an itty bitty 7 week old Chi.
Willow is no longer the smallest.
He is taking our crazy house in stride...first nap.
Naps are short but often LOL. On to some kisses.

Stay tuned for more adventures from Pepe!
Easter egg dying this year was awesome. We tried out the rice dye method, and I think we will be doing it this way from here on out. No mess, no water, just fun and cool colors!
Use to go cups with about 1/4 cup of dry rice...add 4-5 drops of dye. Shake up the cup, then add the egg and shake it up again. Don't wait too long to add the egg, it dries quick. Add more dye if you want darker shade...you can also mix up multiple colors.


Such awesome color...and no spills or mess to clean up. Win, win!
Such a crack up. Lily has a thing for glasses right now LOL. She has worn these everywhere for the last 2 days.

Poor little man.

My little guy has been fighting something for over a week. Today he spent 3 hours getting bloodwork, an xray and fluids. He is so brave...and more than a little lethargic, so he didn't make a fuss over either of his needle pokes.






































Gosh he is smoochable!





































It is always such a huge change in this wild kid when something has really knocked him down. Almost never get to see such a chill Jericho.

3 hours in a tiny room with 4 munchkins...I am not sure how I survived LOL.














Jason and I have a running joke, though I am dead serious, anything we need to replace around here I say "let's make it out of pallets". He is not as big a fan, but he is a good sport. My new "towel rack" to hang in the bathroom. Still needs to be stained but I love, thanks Babe!

Sun break!

Beautiful day...needed this break from the rain badly! Bummer it is not going to last long.
Lena and Classy got to join the rest of the girls today...now to keep Hooch out.



Introductions went well.

Our first two batches of babies for the year are getting close to weaning and heading off to their homes. Our next momma due is Lena, hopefully sometime around April 20th!
Hooch is not impressed being away from his ladies. Even Willie is not a good enough roommate if you ask Hooch.


Willie just goes with whatever. Such a chill guy. He did not appreciate the hot wire we put up to try and contain Hooch though.





Big ginger sweetie!
Everyone loves Willie.



Our last Royal Palm standing. I got a batch of Bourbon Red turkey eggs to try and incubate...hopefully we get some to hatch.
UniPiggie and Chic will be off to their new home soon. A class mate of the triplets lives just down the road from us, they have decided to get pigs and goats from us. We are all so happy that Uni-Piggie and Simon especially will be close by.



So far Giles has hung around the property and doesn't stray far from his feed shed home base. Such a handsome kitty!
