Ben and Anna both have the sweetest lovies named Bunny.  Ben's is a boy bunny, of course; Anna's is a pink miniature version of Ben's.  They both have to have their bunnies for naps and night time.  Ben is pretty good about leaving his bunny in his bed during the day, but Anna wants to carry hers around the house.  When Anna's getting a tooth, Bunny's ears get chewed on a LOT.  So, since her bunny gets misplaced (dropped in random places, hidden in baskets, walked in the baby doll stroller and forgotten) quite a bit, we have two extras. 

We recently added girl bunny #3 to our fleet because Mommy couldn't keep up with washing the original two...and they NEED washing on a regular basis due to lots of teething Miss Anna is doing lately.  Here's what an "old" and new bunny look like in comparison:

Whoa!!  I don't realize how "loved" the bunnies are until we get a new one (thank goodness they still make them and I can get one here in two days from Amazon!).  But don't think a newbie bunny is going to be immediately accepted into the gang around here....oh, no!  Chewed up lovies don't phase Anna a bit; in fact, she prefers them :)  New Bunny has to be physically bound to Old Bunny for a few days so Anna will carry it around - otherwise she just throws it down...REJECT!

After New Bunny gets a little wear on her, we can untie her from the other bunny and add her to the rotation.  Much to Anna's delight :)

Note to self:  Anna can now open wrappers.
It's a Bunny Bonus Day when Mommy forgets to put one of the spares away...two bunnies, whoo hoo!

Finally, this post wouldn't be complete without the bunny that started it all...Ben's little bunny buddy :)



April and May Catch-Up

One of these days, I will catch up and “stay up” to being current on this blog.  Lately, though, it seems like I’m always posting old news.  I just hate to let anything special get left out, because I know one day, this blog will be the only pictures we look back at…why?  Because currently there are 11,589 pictures of the kids on my computer.  Most likely, we won’t be leisurely browsing back through those, ha ha!!

So with that, here are some good times from this spring.

Feeding the Geese in the Holston River

Anna ate more bread than she threw in!
 Ben's favorite ~ pancake breakfast!

Walks with Elmo (fashionably wearing Anna’s pink PJ’s) before it got so hot …Anna held Elmo’s hand for half the walk, so cute!
Celebrating Daddy's birthday with a yummy fruit pizza!
As school wrapped up, we had Muffins with Mom and Donuts with Dad. Also, since Ben has a summer birthday, we celebrated a liitle early with ice cream cone cupcakes and animal masks.

Ben's the lion in the middle!
Here's Ben with his teacher, Mrs. Linda.  She was such a fun teacher, and really loved Ben :)

My little buddy is growing up fast!
