bunny house


oh, no -- my secret is out!!!! i'm NOT crafty at everything. i bought this bunny house kit for jenna for easter. friday morning she and i assembled it together. i pretty much sucked at it and jenna, well, jenna was too busy eating the candy decorations to really care how the house looked. the icing kept running and the candy house tiles kept sliding off onto the table. it sure didn't look like the picture on the box!


once i got my chance to hold baby ben while his mama took a shower, jenna was on her own to squirt the icing over every free area of the house. i was happy to see her express her creativity. little miss independent was a happy camper!


and, here's baby ben's adorable new tennies! he's such a sweet, sweet baby and nothing makes me happier than cuddling him and singing him a little lullaby!

busy week as i try to get things done at work so i can be on vacation next week. a sneak preview tomorrow of where we're going (again).

Sounds a bit like me, I'm not crafty at everything either. It began looking good though! Those are the cutest little shoes! Yea....a vacation soon!

Such sweet little tennie shoes. I think probably the problem with the Easter Bunny house was the premade icing was too soft, needed more confectioner's sugar to stiffen it up a bit...or maybe the humidity was a bit high.

hee hee...you are too funny!! i actually think that those kits are made just so you can eat the candy (and bypass making the house!). so glad you had snuggle time with your grandbabies...where can WE get a pair of shoes like that?! :)
